    ROCKFORD FOSGATE POWER T800-4 class AD or JL HD600/4 class D?

    I an going to buy 2 sets of the Rockford fosgate power t2652-s component system (total of 4 mid bass speakers and 4 tweeters) and I need help deciding on a 4 channel amp to get for them. The 2 I'm looking at are listed in the title above. I am looking for SQ! Which amp would be better for SQ? And also the JL is a class D amp which means that it has very good efficiency but lacks a bit in SQ but since it is a full range amp it shouldn't be too bad. The ROCKFORD FOSGATE is a class AD amp which means that it has the efficiency of a class D amp and the SQ of a class A amp. So which amp should I get for SQ? And what's better JL's class D or RF's class AD?

    Don't believe all the marketing hype you hear about AB vs D. The differences this day and age are marginal, especially when you're referring to a JL.

    If you're just looking for more power, Rockford has been fairly consistent with underrating their stuff, so you'll probably get more than rated power. Either way, though, I'd look into something more like a PPC 900.4 if SQ is your goal. Beefy power, small footprint, and has been getting rave reviews for SQ.

    Or, if you think the 900.4 is butt ugly, the Soundstream TN900.4 looks a tad bit sexier.

    I have an earlier generation of that T8004 waiting to be wired (P8004), so hopefully it's as good as you make it out to be, Kramer.

    Either way, I only paid 90 bucks for it.
