    Slightly lower specs on the 5.0:4 compared to the 8.0. I would personally go for the 8.0 as it has plenty of power on tap. Both are great amps, though.

    Like mclerico was saying, though, that Boston should be number one on your list provided you have space for it

    Re: Recommend me an amp

    well guys just about messed up and bought an amp before i measured but right before i did i went and got the measurements and the boston is going to be way to long, this is going in a rsx type s. so id like to put it under the driver seat. the Mb quart amps seem small and the JL you posted does too.

    If size is the concern, get the PPI P900.4, hands down. Definitely small enough to go under the seats. I'd put the MB Quart as a close second, but it's a little taller than you probably want.

    the links to bostons website doesent work but if you call them or hit refurbished products on the uper left then go to page 4 you will see the gt-4100

    they also have a 5 channel gta-1105 which is really nice for 150 shipped and it would work perfectly with your speakers plus if you wanted to put a 400-500rms sub it would sound amazing later on
    I'd be very cautious when buying anything refurbished from Boston Acoustics. I have heard of many faulty refurb amps sold by them. The quality control is probably low. Instead of one GT-4100, I'd prefer instead two GT-2125s from sonic electronics, where they cost $110 each, or perhaps one GT-2125 and one GT-275. I'd also have a hard look at PPI P900.4. It has small size, runs cool, gobs of power, clean sound.

    Agreed. I have heard great reviews on Soundstream, you should give them a try
