    kicker vs kenwood

    i am trying to decide between two different setups which are:

    Kicker ZX750.1 and ZX200.2

    or

    Kenwood KAC-9103D and KAC-6202

    which would be best for sound quality and overall durability? should i go with kicker over kenwood?

    Re: kicker vs kenwood

    I have never really been a fan of either, but if I had to choose id be Kicker. I for some reason dislike Kenwood to the fullest, IDK why...

    Re: kicker vs kenwood

    I hate Kenwood but the amps are good, from a SQ point of a view I would use the Kenwood. Kicker can drive hard but they dont have the best internals for SQ. I would go Cadence for SQ in the same price range Just my Opinion though. Just like A$$holes we all got one. What are you gonna be running?

    Re: kicker vs kenwood

    I had the those exact 2 kicker amps in my wall install like this:

    They were ok, I didn't really like the sound of the 200.2 (too focused on tweet volume, bad midbass SQ). But I'd still take them over the kenwood models you mentioned

    Re: kicker vs kenwood

    nice setup man. since my infinity speakers are 2ohm and my others are 4ohm and i can run them off the same amp, i am goin to look around for a kicker 4 channel amp and go with kicker. thanks for all the replies.

    Re: kicker vs kenwood

    Do you mean you gonna bridge that amp to run the fronts and the back together?
    Your better off just running the fronts.
