    Alpine KTP-445U vs Clarion XC1410?

    Hey guys, I'm debating between which one of these I should grab for a little power boost:
    Clarion XC1410 vs Alpine KTP-445U Power Pack

    Someone's suggested the Clarion over the Alpine already, but I'm having a hard time with that because the Alpine would fit perfectly with my shiny new HD149BT!

    Thanks as always for suggestions!

    The quick installation is a definite plus for the Alpine. However, the "U" model is not the plug-n-play model. KTP-445A is the one you should look at. Alpine's 445A will be at 1% THD at RMS power, vs 0.1% THD at RMS power on the Clarion. It's possible that would be an audible difference. The Clarion makes a lot more power with 2 ohm speakers. If you'll be using 4 ohm speakers you won't hear any difference from +5W.

    Oh yes you're right, my mistake. I meant to use the U model instead. Hmmm thanks for expounding!
    Kind of leaning towards the clarion now..

    It says "8 gauge power and ground wiring is required for installation", know where to get some cheap 8/10 gauge power/ground wire?
