    Thought and opinions on compact 2 channel amplifiers

    I would like some advice on small 2 channel amps. Considering arc xxd series as well as jl xd and and alpine pdx. Looking for about 100-150 per channel and small going in silver ado crewcab space is a premium. Lets say max budget is 300.

    Your link ***** but I know the amps. I'm leaning towards the sq side of things but loud and compact. How do the massive amps rate in that respect?

    Talk to Trumpet... he had one on here recently for a super good deal... He's a vendor for them I believe so it would have warranty and what not. I haven't personally ran them but I've heard them and they are excellent. They were being ran off a 5v headunit, no distortion, good thd, good fq response, and crazy output for the size. Plus

    Man that is tiny for that kind of power. No opinions on the arc though?

    Re: Thought and opinions on compact 2 channel amplifiers

    Keep all the recommendations coming though please. This is part of the fun of car audio researching the crap out of something before you buy. It can also be frustrating as hell I'm just pretty close to getting my system set to how I want it for a while but I don't want to buy a component amp and be disappointed. If there is something a little more expensive but somebody feels is a home run let me know budget isn't set in stone.

    I'd get the PPI P600.2 (or maybe SoundStream TN2, Polk D2000.2, and NVX class D amps, which belong to the same family of designs). They're powerful and very small, and run cool. Massive NX's power rating are oversold IMHO.

    Re: Thought and opinions on compact 2 channel amplifiers

    Keep in mind I sell all Precision Power amplifiers except the Power Class line. I can strongly recommend the P600.2.
    I like the Massive Nano amps but they're a good amount less powerful.

    Re: Thought and opinions on compact 2 channel amplifiers

    How does an amp that size put out that kind of power? When I look at the specs thd says n/a what exactly do they mean? I know it's class d so it will be a little higher but how will it sound?

    Trumpet's got some baby PPI's advertised that look interesting. I wish someone would bench test one.
