    Memphis vs Orion

    Hello, just signed up, but I've done countless hours of searching and research on this board. Anyways I haven't been able to find much about memphis amps except stuff like "theyre nice". So I was wondering what the advantages one of the new Orion amps would have over the memphis amps for the extra money, when I buy my system I am trying to spend a reasonable amount of money, but if something really is better I have no problem with paying the extra for it. I would be running a 1200 watt amp to my sub (yes i know the memphis is 1100) and a 150x2 to my components. Just wondering if the orion is worth the extra money and why. What do the memphis amps not have?

    Re: Memphis vs Orion

    I dont have any experience with either amp so don't hold much weight from this reply but when i think of orion I think of mad SLP amps and subs. I mean the kinda amps one just drooles all over the keyboard about. They put out sick amounts of clean clean power. When I think of memphis i think of SQ. I don't mean to say that memphis is an SQ and orion is SPL b/c i have no way to prove that and I dont' even really believe it. I would personally go with orion just b/c they make such awsome sick amps. To bad I can't afford them :-(

    I get an Orion 1200D in the mail tomorrow, I'll let you know my first impressions after getting it installed and listening to it for a bit.

    Re: Memphis vs Orion

    I would say that if you have the money then go with Orion all the way. If you are strapped for cash then the Memphis though they are pricey too. I own a Memphis belle and think it is an awesome amp but I'm also a big fan of Orion but can't really afford there bigger higher end amps.

    You can not go wrong either way but companies put out really nice products.

    The only problem I see with Orion amps is that the need alot of juice to play so plan on making a few upgrades to your electical system.

    Re: Memphis vs Orion

    Ya man, any amp made by those 2 companies is generally gonna be real good. I have 2 Orion 600D's and I like em. As of expense I really don't consider them to be all that much. I got my 600D's off of onlinecarstereo.com for 309 a piece.
