    I know all about the virutes of buying second had gear belive me. I've got a bit of a home audio addiction as well and you can get some real good value by snagging some of the high end gear made in the 70's and 80's. Though on the car audio front the issue that I have is that most componets live a much harder life than there home bound relatives and in the case of second hand it's sold as is.

    Honestly with all things considered I'm thinking I'm gonna stik with the Alpha. I remember that even after the Anaba Group bought them out in 2002 they continued to make some **** fine amps and if the 12005E turns out to be more boom than sizzle she'll get returned and I'll take a look at on of her compeditors. Though I do appreciate the input and help.

I have a vid of the latter in the PHD vendor section, playing at full tilt. If you like their sound, you can try out one of there entry level models. Even those are rated for 70 wrms.
    Ok so the MB are out though the infinity's still intrigue me. I've been accoused of likeing "bright" speakers before so that may be a personal taste. Though I'll also take a look at what CDT has to offer in my proce range. I've heard good things about CDt though it's mainly been about there amplifiers. I appreciate all the feed back I've gotten form you guys in such a short time.

    **** double posting.

    for those that didn't want to read hear is the TL;DR version.

    Buying Alpha, maybe inifinity's or CDT.

    I'm well aware of there reputation. Though there are of expertice was home audio back in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. There current products are pretty good but they aren't the cutting edge in audio either. Thats what I was getting at.

    Lets not start throwing stones here, I didn't insult you or your speakers or the amp you sujested. Do you have any direct experiance with their current products or are you basing that statment off what a few people have to say. Cause from what I've seen it's anything but a "cookie cutter chinese amp".

    Not their amps, but the JBL MS comps that I picked up were built under Harmon's rule and Andy Weyermeyer (or something like that) has done wonders for the brand and company for quite some time now. Just because Harmon pays the bills doesn't mean everything they make now is inferior
