    would the extra 225 bucks be worth it on..

    I am in a little dilema I guess. I am trying to decide between the arc xxk and the dls ultimate amps. The package deal for the dls a2 and a3 is 875 shipped, while the package deal for the arc 2100xxk and the 2500xxk is 1100 with tax from a local arc dealer, ten minutes down the road. now either the a2 or 2100xxk would be to run the tweeters (seas r27f) and the a3 or 2500xxk for the seas 7" nextel woofers 8ohm. on paper the arcs seem to be better, output wise and the other little things they list but will all that matter in real life or be worth the extra.

    Both of those amp sets should give you plenty of headroom. They will be audibly indistinguishable. Whether a bit more power that you aren't going to use is worth paying 20% more is a decision that only you can make, it's your money.

    If u can spare the money the Arcs would be a better choice. Not because 1 is better then the other, mainly because you will be gettin it from a local dealer (who I am guessing is authorized to sell Arc) So u should be gettin the full warranty. Plus if you need any help u can goto the shop and they should be more then happy to help you.

    If your completley confident with how u treat ur speakers/amplifiers and know what ur doing. Then the DLS might be better since u save the money. But like I said in the last paragraph, authorized products will full warranty and shop support is always better.

    ^i agree, and with the xxk's you'll get a 3 year warranty if installed by the dealer.
