    Need amp for mids and highs and found this

    Xtant 604x on CL for $100. It appears that this was a top of the line product but appears to be older. Any opinions on this amp? Is it a good choice for $100?

    If it works, it'll be hard to find a better sounding amplifier for anywhere near this kind of money.

    Excellent amp. Normal price for them used in good working condition is $250 or so.

    Pick it up, but make sure you test all the channels first. I was about to grab a 4-channel yesterday without bothering to hook it up, but I went to the trouble to do so and one channel was busted. Saved myself some grief there for sure.

    Went to pick it up. I had not seen anything with the size mentioned for this amp. This thing was huge. I did not buy it because it just would not fit anywhere for my build. My son has a Jeep TJ Wrangler. We already have all of the space under the back seat and behind the seat used with the current setup so this was going to have to go under the passengers seat in the console or under the dash. None of these options would work for this beast.

    Should have bought it anyway IMO. Could have used it in a different setup or flipped it.

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
