ok I have pioneer 6x9's and soon to have 6.5's also, now why is it that everyone says pioneer comps are crap, my HU goes to 62 and I can turn it up all the way and my 6x9's wont distort a bit, they never have, now why is the reason no-one likes pioneer's

Same reason people say brand X is better than brand Y... personal preference. Simple as that.

I've used Kenwood and Pioneer coaxials off HU power in the past and I wasn't disappointed with them. Throw an amp on them and, well, it is a different story. The only Pioneer speakers I would ever amp and expect very decent sound reporoduction are the REVs and the 720PRS's.

haven't heard the 720prs components, but i did hear the rev components a while back. they are pretty decent. price isn't bad either, if you look in the right places.

what are the benifits to running comps off of an amp rather than the HU
