    out of those three...i would personally say the AXT 800.2 is far superior. Great build quality, clean looking, great features, and put's out the most power if i'm not mistaken. peace

    Would my yellow top optima battery be sufficient to run that amp and the CAR??? The car is a 91 acura integra hatchbak, stock alternator. I also have a microfared stiff cap i can use. I am also using a small ppi amp (75 watts) to power some coaxals.

    AXT 800.2 is not mftred by ED, it's Avionixx

    I'd say power wise, the 800.2.

    The problem with your comparison is in the fact that the 800.2 is a 2 channel amp, drops to 4 ohm mono, whilst the Xtant and RF is monoblock, and can drop to 2ohms, if not lower.

    SQ wise, I've always associated Xtant to be one of the top brands for sound quality. I doubt too many can differentiate between the amps. It's just a matter of how you adjust it. THe most audible difference I've been able to notice was with tube drivers. Call it psychological, but they seem to sound so **** clean....

    so anyway, the amp choice will have to be made after you choose a subwoofer.

    Bass drive-by's are uncool.

    ED O's or punch HX2...

    listened to an HX2 before. Loud....VERY loud. No SQ (well, minimal is the word). THe eD O's were made with SQ in mind than SPL. Regardless, I'm sure it can still deliver satisfying SPL if need be.

    I think they are meant for different applications. It's like comparing apples to oranges.
