    The only one I have dealt with is the 2500d. Put it in a Ford Explorer Pushing two 15"L7's. That was about 4months ago. Haven't seen the guy since. But I here him going up and down the road all the time <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    Good luck! I posted a similar question back on Dec. 21 and have yet to get a response re: th planet audio part of th qstn. Best I can tell u is go to <a href="http://www.usacoustics.com" target="_blank">www.usacoustics.com</a> and click on reviews-there's a comparison from a magazine of a us acoustics model vs th planet audio P706 and some other brand. If u ferret thru th data, th planet audio one actually looks the best in my book-mo [email protected] volts(it has an un-regulated supply, which I prefer), and, most importantly, a higher rating in th almighty "sound quality" category. Back to the supply, it's actually what they call a "quasi-regulated" supply; th pre-amp stage is regulated Class A, and th output stage is un-regulated. Idea is to get the sound quality/accuracy advantage of class A in th low-current requirement pre-amp stage, without th inefficiency, xtra heat&wasted space that would happen if th output stage were class A too(mosfet power supplies have enabled a narrowing of th gap between class A and class AB sound quality if that's any consolation). Since us acoustic amps are supposed to be one of the better quality low budget amps-that's what I've read-Jensens are another one-I guess that review must mean that planet audio-at least th mosfet P706-is also in that category. Sounds good in theory, for whatever that's worth!

    Forgot to mention-when I say low budget category, that's based on what I see th planet audio amps selling for on eBay and not retail price.

    Oh, and one more thing-they're made at th same plant as Boss Audio, which doesn't help matters(they're kinda crappy), but they(planet audio) are more expensive and spec out better, so maybe it's not that incriminating. Lemme know how it works out if u do go with a planet audio amp, I'll pass th info along...
