    Profile CA600M vs. CL600M

    are there any significant differences between these 2 amps besides cosmetics?

    from what i've heard, the only internal difference is more bass boost on the CL: 18db vs 12db on the CA.

    Profile advertises that they have a mosfet power supply and a few other extra gadgets, personally i don't think its worth the extra money and the ugly look. CA's look awesome.

    that's weird. according to my CA's manual, the California series uses MOSFET... i wonder if it's just a misprint.

    the Clarus, IMO, is built better. Comes with a 2 year warranty...never had one break on me (or my friends)...and has a subsonic filter built it. the casing itself is even built better...had 2 california's and 1 baja amp from profile crap out and need to be sent back. Hasn't happened once with a clarus...and friend has had his for 1.5 years. peace

    thats the key difference. Subsonic filter. the rest is the same. besides the clarus's ugly look.

    my profile has been pushing my components for about 7 months now, been working great.

    thanks for the input. im planing to use this amp to power 1 diamond audio M5 12" it handles 500 WRMS @ 2ohms. do you guys think that these profiles can power this sub sufficently at 420/450watts?

    Thanks!

    I know diamond audio has a pretty good reputation with subs. do you guys think that these subs will sufficiently power my sub? or, should i look for something with higher power? (this is not for competion just for pleasure). Thanks
