    Lanzar Opti or Orion or Kicker

    Those fall into my price range. I need 100 rms X 2 or 4 and those are the ones I am thinking of pricewise.

    Please tell me which you recomend and why.

    any specific info on any brands would be nice.


    Orion is the only one I haven't read anything bad about. I am looking at the XTR series.

    thanks,
    Mike

    I don't know what model speakers yet. I am running 2 pr of Polk DB6930 at the moment and a 6.5 in the front.

    I am in need of a good quality sounding amp first then I will replace the speakers. that is the order not the other way around.

    I have a Sony C-910 deck and I need tham psince the deck has no power. once I get the amp I can work on the rest. I have sold my current ammps

    yah

    They are all good amps. Its up to you which one you want. Some of the amps may offer a few more options. So check out what each amp offers and decide. Also maybe which one is cheaper, which I would say would be the Lanzar opti.

    well cost is a major consideration but I am looking for something mid level. do not want any Sony, Pyramid, boss type stuff. I want something fairly good so that I can focus on speakers and sound. I got a good HU and now I need a amp to do it justice.

    I still like the Optis for the price . I like the Orions cause I have read nothing anywhere bad about them anywhere.

    others I have read good and bad. the Optis are the cheapest and still supposedly use better parts than bargain amps.

    If I could find the Orion Iwant then I would probably get it but I haven't found it yet at the price I need. I am looking for an XTR800.4.

    I need to find some reviews from audio professionals with test and data on all before I decide.

    It is hard to go by just peoples advice alone

    Lanzar

    All Lanzar lines I have dealt with I have been happy with. from the opti, to the vibe, rack, viberant, VHC. Lanzar is a great quality cheap amp. Also check into Profile. Well tell me what lanzar amp your looking at?

    either 22 Opti 200.2 or maybe the Opti6200 6 channel. I don't need 6 channel but the amp is less than $300 and could be good for future additions/ I jsut haven't gotten any real info in the 6200. I emailed Lanzar.

    Also looking for an Orion 800.4 XTR or
    PPI
    Kicker 800.4 (not sure about Kicker reliability
    US Acoustics


    thanks

    ok

    Have you gone to Lanzar.com yet???
    If not, go to that site, it will tell you everything about the amps. If you need to know anything ask me, I can tell ya.

    Kicker is a reliable amp. A lil more pricy than lanzar or orion. But they are very reliable, well the ones I have dealt with.
