    Skar subs perform well. People will tell you not to buy them due to hate for the owner, but the subs are solid. Were good for the lows

    if it changes with rpm it may be alternator whine.
    check your grounds, it's not your amps fault, it's because of your installation

    Here's one I'm surprised nobody's mentioned yet, Genesis. I haven't really seen anyone running them in a couple years, so I had to look them up to see if they're still around, sure enough they are. Anyone here used them recently?

    No not at all. I took the amp apart out of curiosity. Sure enough there is a little fan in there zinging away loud as can be. The amp workds perfectly but the fan is annoying unless the radio/CD is on

I also like the Power Series amps from RF (even the Punch are nice amps). I could never afford Mosconi or Linear or any of the UPPER brands but I'm starting to get to the point in my career where I can finally afford to try some of the more "exotic" lines.
    I picked up two BNIB kappa perfect 12s for my bro a while back. He has them in a sealed box, and for what it is, gets decently loud, and they sound incredible. Gotta say, I was impressed the first time we hooked them up.

    I'm guessing nobody has experience with Stetsom amps?

    Re: Brands recognized for their quality components and manufacturing.

    I use old school PPI in my daily driver. A 2150am and a 4200am. Not alot of power but, I don't really need alot. Used them for years and they do what do...and they do it very well.
    Thinking toward the future, I picked of a set of used Tru Technology Billets the other day. A B-2110 and a B-475. These amps have waaaay overbuilt power supplies (1000 watts), which translates into dynamic headroom and that's a feature I always look for in an amplifier. I also like their ability to bypass the pre-amp section. They claim to be 100% made in the USA but, their T0-3 output devices say "Mexico" on them so, we shall see.



    Absolutely State of the Art!

    Sorry to join this party late, but I've had good luck with the couple Stetsom amps I've used.

    They make rated power and take up very little space.

    Downside is that repair can be problematic since the parts aren't common. Also the build quality looks like a 10 year old put them together. They really do make a ton of power for their size though.


    Looks like OP has a pretty good list, should be happy any way you go there.`
