    Trying to decide...

    I've narrowed this down (kinda). I'm looking around for a new amp, but I wanted some outside opinions on these. Which would be the best bang for the buck, and why? If you know of any pros/cons from personal experience, etc.

    Would have done this as a poll, but for some reason, it's not letting me. Sorry. :-/

    SAZ 1500
    Hifonics BRZ1700.1D
    MB Quart ONX1.2000D
    DD M2B
    DC 2.0k
    IA 20.1
    Soundstream RUB1.1600D

    I'm not buying now. This is just in the planning stage, so please don't ask just yet.
    Thanks, guys. :-)

    Re: Trying to decide...

    i'd go either DC 2.0k, Hifonics 1700, SAZ 1500, or even the MB quart. after that it comes down to price.

    because the DC is great. if you don't do that i'd try to obtain an older model Hifonics amp, i think they're better than the stuff that have now

    Sundown, IA would be my first 2 choices after owning both. I'd consider the DC or DD, forget the rest.

    Re: Trying to decide...

    I like my saz 1500 seems very efficient and works well personally I wouldn't go with the hifonics or the soundstream (I'm guessing the mb quart as well) because they are rated at 14 volts rather than the others you mentioned which I believe are rated at lower voltages after that it comes down to what you want to spend just my .02.

    Re: Trying to decide...

    I own the Quart, and it's a heck of an amp for the 240 it can be had for, new. That would get my "bang for the buck" vote.

    If I could have any of them... I would pick the DD, all day long.
