I know off the bat that the Sundown is clearly better.
But I've heard Lanzar's Opti line is pretty good too.
yes, the sundown is 4ch and stable to 1 ohm per ch, but i just need a big 2ch (x2 @ 2 ohm), which the lanzar is rated 950 rms x 2 @ 2 ohm. the sundown is rated (real power) at about the same or maybe more (jake said close to 1k i believe) x 2 @ 2 ohm bridged.
the lanzar is $327+ shipping, i think i paid 340ish shipped (i already bought it, before i even realized the sundown was available).
the sundown, im not going to say the price that jake gave me becuase it is team pricing, but its more than the lanzar, but again, we all know its clearly a quality amp.
thing is, i'd need 2 of either amp for my mids setup (16 mids, about 230w each from the lanzar, prally more like 250w a piece from the sundown)
i also like all matching amps....and i'd rather run sundown sub amps. but IF i end up keeping the lanzar and buying a 2nd one, ill just run one on each side of my wall behind the rear doors, and then run sundown sub amps on the back of the wall.
what do you guys think? if i hadn't bought the lanzar already, i'd prally have just spent extra and went with the sundown 200.4. but im going to loose out just from flipping the lanzar (still brand new) then after shipping, its gonna be even more of a loss, becuase the box is HUGE, and its heavy. it does look like a nice amp though. guts look nice too. the sundown has a way better xover, but i really don't need it since i cross my mids over from my 880 already.
heres a pic of just how big the box is compared to my crescendo 4ch
