    I've heard the PA BB was always solid. That looks like the newer stuff so I can't say. Never used PA stuff though tbh

    the only subs i have. the 05 model bxi's . im putting them back on the power they have always been on (2k) but ill be putting a little more this time around to see how it goes. i think the db drive looks solid plus its unregulated.

    db Drive is pretty highly rated outside of the US. I'd be tempted to go that route.

    I think the Okur series is their good stuff, can you find any of that refurbed?

    From what I've seen db Drive would be my choice, but it would be the Okur series. It seems like that **** is the DD of South America or something.

    Re: need some opinions on new amp

    Tough decision. I would probably go with the DB Drive amp also... Even though the PA is 400 watts more, the DB should be pretty close to that if you have strong electrical, being that is unregulated and can handle up to 16V. Planet Audio generally isn't regarded as the highest of quality gear either.....

    '02 BMW 330xi (AWD coupe), every option
