    WAAY to many amp options for my system...opinions please!!

    Alright here it goes...
    Basically, I need a 2 channel amp that does 500-700x1 bridged@4ohms, and a 2 or 4 channel amp that does 100-175x2@4ohms.

    So I have been thinking....do I want to go old school or new school?

    Old school options:
    PPI Art Series
    Soundstream (old) Rubicon
    Soundstream reference

    New School options:
    Orion
    Kenwood Excelon
    MTX Thunder (2004)
    US acoustics
    Soundstream Van Gogh
    Diamond Audio D5 series
    Kicker KX


    I know that is a pretty huge list.
    I am leaning towards the old Soundstream Rubicon series because:
    a)I can get them brand new in the box
    b)They would match pretty close to my really old Soundstream d100II and d60 amps.


    I know this is a lot to go through, but I was just hoping that you guys could give me some opinion as to what you think.

    Thanks so much...you guys rock.

    Go with the Rubi's......great amps. The Art's would be excellent aswell, but will cost you more.

    If you wanted to go new school, the DSP on the Kicker SX series is supposed to be pretty awesome.

    Where can you get the Rubi's BNIB from? I had two BNIB 302's...kick myself in the butt for selling them Still have a 702 though, and would LOVE to find a 1002
