    Jbl/Orion/ or Arc Audio?

    Well for my XXX im looking at these three amps

    Jbl Bp 1200.1 (from cardomain for 200$ renewed or whatever)
    Orion 1200d (dunno how much this one runs for)
    Arc Audio 2500xxk (600$ -700$)


    which do you think i should get? Obviously most are gonna say the Arc, but am i really gonna need to spend 400$ more to get a little better quality than the JBL? thanks for input

    You don't NEED to do anything. If you WANT to spend that much of on an amp, go for it. It will be better. You are the only person you can judge how much you value that.

    Re: Jbl/Orion/ or Arc Audio?

    is there that much of a difference between the arc and the orion? do you think if i get the orion that i will want to update in a year or two to something of higher quality--should i jsut get the arc now and save time/money?

    i think im gonna go with the middle... tell me if this spectrum is accurate

    Low ----------------------------------------------------- High

    Jbl____________Kicker/Orion__________Arc Audio


    i think ima get either the kicker kx 1200.1 or the orion 1200d....any reviews or thoughts on these? i can find any negative reviews for either which makes it tough.

    botha are excellent and underratted, with either you will get close to1400 watts if not more of clean power

    in addition I would not consider the JBL low end

    yeah im sorry I guess what I meant by Low was that it was the lowest of the mentioned brands...I really wanted to buy the refurbished JBl 1200 off cardomain.com but i think they are out of them

    and i read about 5-10 bad bad reviews about ikesound.com , so i dont think i want to purchase something from there.
