    pioneer gm-x962 or kenwood kac-728s

    Ok currently i have a pioneer premier 10" sub that handles 400 watts rms. which amp should i buy the pioneer(380rms) or the kenwood (300rms).

    I had the kenwood but i sold it to a guy cause i figured he paid enough for me to get the newer model but now i saw the pioneers for cheaper. around $130 shipped i need some advice!! Has anyone heard any good things about pioneer amps or own one?
    Some advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    given the two choices mentioned... i would go with the pioneer. it has a closer RMS watt rating than the kenwood. but, you could do a lot better with an even more powerful amp for your sub. some thing in the 400-500w RMS range from a reliable manufacturer. jl audio - jbl - rockford fosgate - mtx just to give you some examples.



    good luck and good listening!

    you will want to give your sub at least its RMS watts... with no harm if you go over the rms by as much as 50-100watts rms. if you want spl then go with a ported box. if you want sq then go with a sealed box. i recomend a sealed box, you can acheive the best of both worlds (spl & sq).



    good luck and good listening!
