Okay, I cannot make up my mind on which brand amp (2 Channel) to purchase for my boat. I know, I know, this question has been asked a thousand times! So, if you could spare me the BS, or *** for tat, and give an honest response - unbiased of course, which brand you buy based on best bang for the buck, that would be great. And, I am sure others would appreciate it as well. My assumption is that regardless of Car versus Marine (board is dipped) amplifier, the concept or guts are generally the same? Or, lets assume so.
So, based on quality, reputation, best value, clean sound, which brand would you go with? Pick Five in order of purchase: I know this is somewhat of a loaded question Ford versus Chevy, but I know you can do it.... remember, best value for the $$. In other words, how much extra fluff ($) are you paying for name brands, JL Audio, Alpine, etc.... And if you like to know what this amp will be paired with, one (1) pair Polk Audio MM651um (100w RMS and 200w Max - 4 ohm rated). At this time no sub, if at a later time it will be with a separate amplifier. So, consider this scenario during your analysis and choices: (Feel free to add a brand if not listed).
Here is my pick:
2. MTX Thunder
4. JL Audio
In advance, thanks for your honesty.
