    Icon32 Which amp? JBL vs Hifonics

    I thought I at least had my mind made up to get the JBL 1200.1 for whatever sub I get, but I ran across what sounds like a good deal on a 5-channel amp, the Hifonics Zeus Z 8000. I know it is strange to compare a 5 channel amp to a mono amp, but if the Hifonics delivers it's rated power, it would save me from possibly having to upgrade later. I was just going to use my head unit for my 4 speakers with the JBL. I am interested in SQ, not spl, and I think 200 or 300 watts to a sub would play as loud as I could stand to stay in an ext. cab pickup with it. What do y'all know about hifonics?

    If I get the JBL, I will run my speakers with the hu. If I get the Hifonics, I will run my 4 speakers plus the sub with it since it is 5 channel.

    get hifonnics, ii have had that same one running my blaupunkt sub and my infinity interior speakers. it was the best! it is only like 280 dollars, so i dont think you can go wrong. i changed my interior amp, and sold mine but it was awsome. i have a jbl 600.1 and it is alright, i have no problems with it or anything, but i like the way the hifonics has an amp for your mids too. thats my opinion, and if you do get the jbl, and want to upgrade your speakers amps, look into the us aucostics, they are great!
