    Soundstream Xstream vs. Lanzar Vibe series

    Yes it's cheap vs. cheap.... Im curious about peoples opinions on these two. The system in question will have a small two channel for front stage and a big bridged two channel for the sub stage. The amps need to match. So between these two could I please get some experiences and opinions as far as sound quality and realiability. Thanks guys and gals!

    reliability hands down will end up with soundstream! overall soundstream will take the cake between the 2. the lanzar vibe amp's are no different then legacy amp's .
    dont waste the cash on the lanzar stuff. good luck

    Re: Soundstream Xstream vs. Lanzar Vibe series

    Well Im looking @ 80wrms per channel front and 600wrms to the sub. Im not looking for perfection here just been looking at these two brands and Im just trying to get a budget system together. Nothing crazy Ive got a bunch of other things to spend money on. Im tired of Frankenstien systems and well you know...

    I'd go wit soundstream. Just cuz of the fact that if it doesn't say opti on a Lanzar, I don't want it.

    Re: Soundstream Xstream vs. Lanzar Vibe series

    I've had experience with 4 a/b vibe amps. The only one that has given me any trouble is one I bought used off ebay - it still works, but occasionally one of the channels drops out - ~10% of the time.

    Judging by the pics on ampguts I wouldn't be surprised if they come from the same factory.

    Worst thing about the lanzars IMO is how poorly they're rated.
    The 231 for example rated at 200x2 @ 4 and 350x2 at 2 with a 25A fuse. Realistically probably 100x2/150x2.

    Re: Soundstream Xstream vs. Lanzar Vibe series

    I got one of these use off ebay for $40 for my crapper DD, http://www.lanzar.com/itempage.asp?model=VIBE268 I think it says 1000w rms bridged, well I know it isnt 1000w, more like 700 or 800, but for the price it still was a good buy, I even ran it 2ohms mono for like 2 mths, it got a little warm but it never shut off and never blew any fuses. It pounded a single MTX Thunder 8000 pretty **** good too.

    Re: Soundstream Xstream vs. Lanzar Vibe series

    someone on here had a 268 tested a year or two ago. It was 923w at 14v if IIRC. Surprised me too, especially with 2x30A fuses.

    It was going for $110 at milliobuy for a while, and at the time was one of the better deals out there.

    Probably the exception rather than the rule.
