    For SQ what amp is better? CT Sounds 150.6 or PPI P900.5

    And Why?

    CT has more head room but the PPI has more than I need.

    Speakers
    Pioneer Pioneer TS-D1730C 6 3/4" Component
    Ct Sounds 6.5 Components
    Cadence Components if I go to over budget on other things.

    Sub
    Dayton Shallow 10
    Tang Band 8
    Dayton 8
    Ct or Cadence shallow 10 or reg 8 Again if budget falls apart.

    That said I would like to buy a amp today but consider this there also

    RE Audio DTS 1000.1 (800 @ 1 Ohm)
    RE Audio DTS 500.2 (60x2) I think

    I already have these but are in different car so wondering how they compare to above.

    Thanks for any help and I am 100% OK but had surgery yesterday and been up all night. Just sitting around reading stuff online so if you have any input please say so. Stuff is going in a 05 4 door canyon. Bought X731BT radio and hopefully it shows up today.

    I like the PPI for price and adjustability, but the CT for power. So I guess it's a question of what's more important to you.
    Personally, there's no such thing as too much power -- but I'm also a cheapskate

    CT amps did have a vibration issue, but i think that has since been resolved. I dont think youd experience any undue sound issues from the PPI, plus headroom is always a good thing.



    2002 Honda Accord sedan V6 (automatic slushbox)
    2 Rockford p3 12s (dual 2 ohm)
    Pioneer AVH-X4500bt (takes about a year to start playing music on the USB input)
    PPI PC275 running 1 sub atm, waiting to put the SQ 2200.1 back in and add the PhoenixGold Elite.4 once my electrical is up to snuff
    Stock front and rears (theyre actually squirrels listening to headphones that ive trained to sing what theyre hearing)

    I just added 5 SoundQubed stickers, and despite having no equipment upgrades, it added 76 DB!!!

    that was only their 4k amps and above every other amp they have zero issues with vibration. get your information right gramps before making false generalized statements.

    The ct will walk all over that ppi for mids and highs performance wise hands down. Coming from a person that used both brands, you'll be an idiot to choose the ppi over the CT for mids and highs SQ wise. That being said, you'll want a dedicated sub amp later if you want it loud. By then you can do a 3 way active front stage which will be even better. Rather just future proof yourself now then thinking oh "my mids and highs are pretty lacking or they could be better"

    literally just future proof yourself man, that setup wont last long lmao this hobby is worse than a crack addiction. I had to go all out until i got a setup I feel completely satisfied with and said okay i'm fking done upgrading.



    09 Sienna Subs : Four Team Ascendant 18s......Sub amp: Two Taramps 15k
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS................................Mids/Highs amp: CT 500.2, ppi 600.2, ppi 900.4 bridged
    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    yeah u should get 2 amps now instead of thinking 350-500rms to sub will be enough forever.. idk what car this is going in maybe i missed it if u have a little room i'd try for reg sub not shallow and run 800-1k to it and have separte 100x2 channel or something like that.. if u don't need the power fine if u do u have it., if u don't like 1 of the amps u can swap it without having to re do whole thing..
