Why would a high-end HU be less powerful than a low-end one?

No idea, but the higher end one is better.

higher end h/u's offer more feature's and typically give/allow a more flexible crossover network built in as you won't need internal h/u power. most people that are dropping 350 on a deck are using external amplifiers for all speakers in their car and want the best transport with the highest pre-out voltage. typically more expensive decks have all of what i listed above, and they put those feature's above a higher powered built in amp to the deck. not to mention the more power you put out at the h/u the more chance you have for distortion and other messy things that people don't want.

Now that I think about it, that makes A LOT of sense.

Thanks for the clarification.

higher end h/u's offer more feature's and typically give/allow a more flexible crossover network built in as you won't need internal h/u power. most people that are dropping 350 on a deck are using external amplifiers for all speakers in their car and want the best transport with the highest pre-out voltage. typically more expensive decks have all of what i listed above, and they put those feature's above a higher powered built in amp to the deck. not to mention the more power you put out at the h/u the more chance you have for distortion and other messy things that people don't want.

It depends on how you define "high end." My RF 8250 has no internal amp, no crossovers, etc, but it is MUCH higher end than most(maybe all) decks that have a ton of features in them....atleast by my definition of high end.

hence why i said typically or usually right?;)

Well, I wouldn't even necessarily say typically or usually....well, higher end in a brand's line, maybe, but higher end/high end, over all, no :)

The only high end deck available at that price might have been the RF 8250 :p:

Is that in reference to my last post? If so, are you saying a deck has to have a ton of features in order for a system to have great sound?

If so, are you saying a deck has to have a ton of features in order for a system to have great sound?

He's just ****ing with you...don't worry, does it to me all the time :D

4 watts rms is not everything.


watt deliverance is one of the many many things that are considered into building a quality HU...maybe you are forgetting that.

some1 that is generally buying a top-of-the-line HU is going to power their comps w/ an external amp. so why need more watts through the HU?

am i making sense.

What the frick?

I don't think I've used the amp in my h/u in the last 5 years...it's completely useless

I love when people tell me about how great their system sounds, when it's running off the radio...go **** in a barn.
