    Re: what amp brands put out true rms and great sq?

    Thanks. I'll get that done too.

    Anyone want to take a stab at what dB I might get with the MMATS D1600.1 and a Sundown Audio SA-8 in a 2011 Jeep cherokee?

    It'll be tested as soon as I get the amp.

    Re: what amp brands put out true rms and great sq?

    If you're talking about an amp for your components I have experience with both the Soundstream Ref 2.640 and the Elemental Designs Nine.2x

    The Soundstream sounds a little better, BUT I'm also using the Soundstream on a set of ID CXS62 where as the Nine.2x was running the ID CTX's, and the CXS62 have the doors deadened and the CTX's did not. The crossover on the Soundstream is much better than the ED though IMO.

    If you live in a cool region where the summer temps barely reach 95, I would get the Soundstream, but if you live somewhere where it gets hotter, definitely get the Nine.2x as it runs MUCH cooler than the Soundstream and you won';t have a problem with it going into protection.

    Re: what amp brands put out true rms and great sq?

    A bit off topic - but I think our Lanzar/Zed history is a little off.

    Through '96-97 Lanzar was a stand-alone all in-house brand. They designed and built their own speakers, amps, processors etc at their facility in CA. I used to know the town. Simi Valley maybe?

    It seems they saw the sell-out to Asia on the horizon and, fittingly, sold out to Sound Around.

    I'm pretty sure the old a/b beasts (50c, 2500 etc.) all came before Lanzar (as part of Sound Around) contracted with Zed Audio.
    If they were Zed's amps, he certainly changed his philosophy on internal layout because those old amps were a mess on the inside.
    In the late 90's the silver Optidrive's came out (500.2, 200.2, 100.4 and 1000.1D) and they were Zed's modern, super clean boards.

    It always seemed to me Sound Around really did make an effort to carry on the reputation of high quality amps in the optidrive line (apparent by using Zed to build them for a couple years).
    But the massive amounts of chinese (non-opti) Lanzar stuff dragged them down.
    So now most people lump them in with the junk brands, but the occasional "enthusiast" (like me) still throws out the token -- "But don't forget about Optidrive -- still good amps".

    Anyway -- The last Zed designed/built Optidrives were completed in '99, maybe '00.
    Lanzar had stock through about '02, then the Korean models replaced them in '03-'04.

    Not much for reading comprehension huh?

    I think I was pretty clear that most of the NON-Opti stuff is not worth messing with.

    More clearly, for the reading impaired...

    NON-opti - not good.
    Opti - much better.
