    Need help choosing amp for HAT Imagines

    Need help choosing an amp for the HAT Imagines. I will be running them active off the amp itself so it will need built in x-overs. Been looking into these, don't want to spend too much on the amp right now. Budget is $150-$175. Which one would be best? Thanks.

    the rubi is what I'd run



    I am protesting Skar by giving them added exposure in my signature.

    Thanks for the input guys. I just found this one for about $230, it a PPI Phantom 900.4. Is it better than the rubicon? Linked to it in first post.

    They all ****. Why? You're not going to get a quality x-over, EQ, or any processing with a <$200 amp. Unless you have some sort of EQ, going active is pointless.

    For your application, active, you're going to need to spend more than $175 if you want the best sound. If you're on a budget, use passives. Running speakers off a cheap amp's crossover will sound bad no matter what brand speakers you're using. So, those amps you've been looking over will all be poor choices. In addition, cheap amps use really bad sounding x-overs anyway and you do not want to rely on those.

    Thanks for the input. If I ran them passive, would this be a good amp for it?
