    Phoenix Gold RX600.5

    Hey guys, first post here looking for some advice and comments.

    I am about to pull the trigger on a Phoenix Gold RX600.5 amplifier for my new f-150 super crew.

    The features I need/want are
    5 channel for upgrading 2 comps, 2 coax, & 8" sub
    Hi-level inputs to integrate factory sync controls to navi system
    small dimensions for stealth install behind back seat
    good sound quality
    decent output without distortion (not looking to blow dishes off the neighbors shelf)

    I have owned a Xenon 600.1 amp and that thing produced clean power beyond the rated value by close to 50% which is my basis for choosing the PG RX600.5 ($350 locally). I have seen the JBL GTO-5EZ($400 Crutchfield) which meets my criteria, the only downside I saw to that amp was more power being reserved for the sub channel with only 50W for the other 4 channels and less desirable dimensions.

    I would like to hear any input/comments/advice (minus trolling) since I know this is a new amp and not thoroughly reviewed or tested. I haven't purchased the speakers yet but I am leaning towards powering an image dynamics ID8V3 (150 RMS) and image dynamics ID CTX65cs (100 RMS) and have not put any thought into the rear speakers.

    That pretty much covers the basics, so chime in and give some input on this amplifier and also the overall set-up if you feel like there could be improvements for about the same budget.
