Hi, I have a simple project, I have already both of these amps. They will be driving and set of components to be determined, and a set of coax for the rear fill, or 6.5 mid drivers.
In any case this is what I have now, what they will drive it is not an issue except know a set of components for the front.
Both 5 ch amps, one is 6 ch but bridgeable to 5 and Full full Class AB. Another one is a 5 ch full class D. Specs given do not represent much since they are from 2 different times when ratings were given differently and some companies were modest on their specs or they still may be modest since it is made by the same company. Room is not an issue, it will be driving a 10 inch 280 watt RMS sub at 4 ohms. Power consumption not an issue either, just SQ and RMS power comparison. Perhaps someone already used both, heard or know someone having either one.
Here 2 links for the 6 ch class AB amp this one uses two 30 am fuses

Thanks and I will appreciate any opinions and suggestions. I guess I have the option to try both, I know but if you had project you needed to finish soon and you were familiar with both, which one would be your choice. Many SQ oriented people tend to like class AB amps, not that I am answering my own question but any extra opinions are welcomed.
