I am still new to all this. I thought the best HU's had 22 RMS x 4. Then I saw this JVC with 35 RMS x 4. Is this a good unit to have if I want the extra power?:crazy:

HM not sure, looks legit but the only Headunit's I've seen with more power was the series Alpine released with the V-Power or whatever it was called internal amplifiers that put out 30-35 watts I think.

you really don't see all that power till your pretty much maxing the volume. it's good to have i suppose but in the end you are better off running your speakers off amps instead of the head unit.

Well yeah headunit amp will never replace a proper amplifier, but for just running rear fill or whatever more power isn't necessarily bad. :)
