    Re: Diamond D5 1200.1

    D5's are great amplifiers that undoubtedly put out more power than rated- I know of many Maxima members running them contently and satisfied- most of them running DA TDX's which require pretty good juice to get'm movin'

    I have personal experience with the D3 amps (were designed by Robert Zef (Arc/Zapco) and those suckers are proven warriors too at a good price

    Re: Diamond D5 1200.1

    a D51200.1 pushing a TDX in a transmission line box is like my dream system (or maybe a few of each). Ive owned a D5300.2 and it was a monster, got rid of it because I needed money, and it retailed for $500 so I sold it. Diamond Audio also have great warrenty and are very good company to work with, had a dust cap blow of my cm3 and sent it to the factory and they sent me a new one no questiones and its over a year old. Diamond Audio all the way! :patriotic (well that smiley doesnt work!)

    also all my speakers, and subs are Diamond Audio they are great!

    Re: Diamond D5 1200.1

    The cheapest I've found around here are...

    $200 each for the subs
    $450 for the amp...

    I didn't wanna pay that much but the only cheaper place I can find is woofersetc.com and I would rather not but it online....other places quoted me like $799 for the amp and I just laughed and hung up the phone...
    so let me know what prices are like up there for you

    Re: Diamond D5 1200.1

    Definately a good solid amp. I have been dealing with/selling DA for about 4-5 years now and have nothing but pleasure dealing with them. Warranties are great, but only if bought (1yr) and installed (3yr) from a legit dealer. Nothing online allowed as Im sure you already know.

    Yes the TL enclosures are very ideal, and work with all of their lineup. Probably my most commonly sold enclosure. Too bad it takes a few hours to construct. lol
