    I don't know would the introduction of the P9 combo into your (the royal "your" - not speaking to you specifically) setup realistically be considered 'settling.'

    Can't see where anybody would be unhappy with it at all...excepting them being terribly foolish.

    (yes, yes, yes - I know you didn't mean it literally....)

    Myself - I'd go with the F1 if for no other reason than cosmetics - I like the look of it better than the P9 - but that's just me.

    they make some of the best ones
    the rockford fosgate rfx-8250 (rebadged denon) is one of the best affordable HU's.
    or you could throw down some major cash and find a dct-r1/z1.
