Hi, new here. Yes I know there is a post right below me, but I didnt want to hijack it, and my needs are a little more. Price range $700, really really really reall prefer to stay below $450.
1/ My V input is 13.8 car in idle.
2/ I really want to stay AB class, the 5th ch can be D though if no other choice.
3/ I prefer a 4ohm setup (The Kappa states • True Four Ohm Impedance technology: speaker's 2-ohm impedance combines with speaker wire impedance for a 4-ohm load----but I'm not sure what that means, is it 4 or 2?)
Note, I'm not trying to shake down the block, just have a beautiful sound and add an audible 6-12db to my low end.
As it is, my set up will be.
1/ Infiniti Kappa 62.9i Speakers (all doors)
2/ Rockford Fosgate 3Sixty.3 Processor
3/ Boston Acoustic G310-4 Sub
4/ The amp is where it gets a little complicated for me. From reading up on specs I want to go with a class A/B and stay away from D for the poor audio quality (ch 5 can be D though). I prefer a high SNR. I dont know how much it matters in a car, but when I used to build studios, I made sure nothing was below 110 SNR) Which of these should I go with, or if you have a suggestion?
a/ MB Quart ONX4.80/500 (The specs seem perfect, but I've never heard of this manufacturer before and the price to specs seems too good to be true)
b/ Rockford Fosgate P1000X5D (Great SNR 105 FR/95 Sub, but class D)
c/ JBL GTO-5EZ (Poor SNR 85)
d/ Polk Audio PA D5000.5 (Great SNR 105, but class D)
e/ Alpine MRX-V70 (Poor SNR 85, and class D, but fits the bill)
f/ Image Dynamics i5800
