    Which amp for my rsd components?

    Hey guys, so I plan on getting some 6.5 rsd components and I want to go with around 150wrms to each. I have read through a bunch of threads and came up with these choices:

    Cadence
    http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductC...&idproduct=382
    Profile
    http://www.millionbuy.com/prfap1000.html
    http://www.millionbuy.com/prfap1200.html

    Basically which would be the best performance wise and best justified in the cost.

    I know cadence are known to be high quality but it does 150 at 13.8 volts, I dont know the conversions but that is going to be less than 150 but I just dont know by how much....

    Also just a side note I'm trying to buy some rsd's and I cant seem to find anywhere else then ebay and I would like to know if you guys know of anywhere else to get them for cheaper.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    The Kicker ZX450.2 would be a nice amp for the rsd's.

    Re: Which amp for my rsd components?

    I did look at that too
    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=3953

    The thing is it is another $40 and I dont really know if it would be worth that extra amount? I can't find the size but it doesn't appear that it would be much smaller than the other choices...

    And it will put out even less than the Cadence, since its rated at 150x2 @ 14.4v

    If you're not scared of refurbished stuff you should check out:

    http://profilecaraudio.com/amplifiers.htm

    I bought my Clarus CL600 (refurbished) directly from them. Has been working great (almost two years now). Shipping to me was ~$12 or so. It even came with a 1 year warranty.

    Their refurbished CA1200 comes with a 2 year warranty, but it does seem to cost $30 more than Million Buy.

    Also, if you're interested in a model that Profile doesn't have in their refubished listing then you can email them. That's what I ended up doing when I wanted to CL600 and they sold me one. :-)

    Rockford Fosgate amps are known to be underrated. These 25th anniversary edition amps were also very underrated. they pretty much made a 200watt rms X2 amp and stuck a 37.5 rating on it.
    I have the punch 150 version of this amp which says 75 X2 and my birthsheet came stating it tested at 311 X 2. Definately a great deal and I would bet that amp i linked to wont go much over $100 based on previous auctions ive seen. Also it is a limited edition which makes it kinda fun and collectable, i think they were limited to 2500 of each model.

    you can do a search here for that punch 75 or any of the "25 to life" amps and you will read from other people that own them
