Hey guys, here is a description to give you an idea of what PHD is all about.

PHD Audiophile Sound Systems has been producing handcrafted Italian automotive audio products for nearly 20 years.
These “instruments” replicate the splendor, style and allure of Italy, with perfect sonic precision.
The maximum in style, sound quality and precision are what we produce, we will not settle for less - why should you?
The futuristic materials used to handcraft our components are the most advanced available - some we have created ourselves!
We do not follow trends: we set them!
Our line of products renew our dedication to style and design and the instrument precision whilst advancing in materials, technology, and capability.
These are the reasons why our products are unique and probably the finest in the world.

I'd like to handle this one, if no one else minds. Doesn't really prove much other than that they'll get stupid loud and clear... Well, Ok, I guess it proves something, lol. Anyways, I have a very healthy amount of power going to my doors with these fb6.1pro's run active.

I just need the right song... Suggestions?

Hey, I was hoping you could give me some information on the PHD "art" series of amplifiers? Is that entry level or something better? I have the option to buy one pretty cheap I was just wondering if I'm getting a steal or just a decent buy.

PHD never had an "Art series" amplifier. You might be thinking of PPI

I would never confuse any other amp with a legend like that.

I'm thinking it's one of those different area market things, or the more likely scenario of them calling it the wrong name. I have this issue buying stuff from Japan all the time. He is saying it's a PHD "ART2075". Here's what I remember: 2ch, single 30 amp fuse, grey case with PHD logo engraved on an other wise smooth, kind of shiny top. Heatsinks all the way down the two sides, power and speaker terminals are pretty basic and on the same side as each other. There is a matching "ART4060" that I can get with it, I guessing it's pretty similar but a 4ch

I'm really sorry I don't have a pic to make the Identification easy, I'm just going by what I remember. Thanks in advance for your help.

Oh! and while your at it....haha, My friends has a had a set of oval PHD speakers sitting in his shop for a decade or so. If I remember right they are 6x9's. I think they were the stock speakers he pulled from a Ferrari (I'm not sure it's just I don't know where the hell else they could have came from, they were the first PHD product I had ever seen and I remember him saying they were sometimes OEM for Ferrari) . They sound pretty good, but he wants about $150 for the pair. I'm sure he is just made that price up, but it was hard to convince him to sell them, let alone talk him down. I would just be buying them to match that amp, but I don't really like oval speakers in general. Can I eventually resell them for that if I decide to go a different route?

Hmmmm lol I know there has been a 4060 made by PHD for a while. I have never heard of it being called the Art Series before. If you can, get some pictures.

They do OEM for ferrari, but I doubt you could sell them for $150.

Maybe my friend in Japan got it right after all....after 5 minutes on google image search with the search term "PHD 4060 amp" I can't one singular link where these amps are NOT listed as "ART 2075" or "ART 4060". Not that I really care mind you. Whatever it's called, is $200 or so a good deal for either one in used, 9 out of 10 condition?

I think the pic is of the 2ch but the 4ch is just slightly larger.

It must be an older line, I really only have knowledge of their most recent line of amps, The US hasn't had any of those amps come into the market unless imported by an individual.

The only one that is available for purchase right now is the mono, the others are out of stock, but the mono does extremely well.
