    JL Audio vs Sundown

    which one of these is an all around better 4ch amplifier?

    JL Audio 300.4
    or
    Sundown SAX-100.4

    I bought my JL 300/4 used and channels started dying after 5 months. Take it for what its worth.

    I have had a few customers swap out the JL Slash amps for the SAX amps and they were very happy.

    never used the sundown, but I like the features of the JL amp.

    but the JL 450/4 > both of them amps.

    Re: JL Audio vs Sundown

    Depends on which features suit your taste.

    The Sundown has more power, but the JL has regulated output that allows for consistent power output into any load between 4ohm and 1.5ohm (some people prefer this feature).

    The JL has selectable 12db/24db filters if you plan to use the internal crossovers. The Sundown is fixed at 12db, but also has a subsonic filter that can be used to create a bandpass filter.....IMO I'd rather have the selectable slopes of the JL since even the most basic low-end headunits offer a highpass crossover that you could use should you need to create a "bandpass" filter.

    There, how about that?

    Review from an Audison dealer that doesn't carry my stuff Although, he did buy that SAX-100.4 after the review.
