    Alpine MRV-F450 vs Kicker KX 700.5

    I'm looking for a 5 channel amp to drive an entire system and wanted opinions as to which amp you would prefer and why. The Alpine clocks in around $360 shipped and the Kicker at $430 shipped. The Alpine has 50x4 and 200x1 while the Kicker has 35x4 and 200x1. The Alpine I believe is class A/B all around the Kicker is class A/B for the first 4 channels and class D for the sub channel. In case it matters I'm driving a 12" MTX Thunder 8000.

    Any input would be appreciated...

    Alpine amps are very good, and Ive always thought of kicker to be a lower quality brand. Kind of surprises me that it's more expensive than the alpine. Just look at the specs. You get more power for less money, and you know it's a well known brand. I say alpine.

    Just because I don't say it, don't mean I aint thinkin it.

    Well, being that you're the only response, you pretty much expressed my sentiments between Kicker and Alpine. I've always thought Alpine products to be better as well. Chances are I'll be going with the Alpine as I've been leaning toward it over the Kicker and pocket the $70 difference. Thanks for the opinion.
