    Re: whats better?

    Id do the Jbl. If you do, take note that it is a 2ohm set



    Team Flex Issues
    Temp Setup- 2 jvf custom ssx 12s on rd3250.1 v1
    Xs Power/Hertz/Image Dynamics

    but, amp aside, does that really set a precedence?



    2002 Honda Accord sedan V6 (automatic slushbox)
    2 Rockford p3 12s (dual 2 ohm)
    Pioneer AVH-X4500bt (takes about a year to start playing music on the USB input)
    PPI PC250 running 1 sub atm, waiting to put the SQ 2200.1 back in and add the PhoenixGold Elite.4 once my electrical is up to snuff
    Stock front and rears (theyre actually squirrels listening to headphones that ive trained to sing what theyre hearing)

    I just added 5 SoundQubed stickers, and despite having no equipment upgrades, it added 76 DB!!!

    If its the 900.4, its a good amp. It shares a board with the hdp4. I would hope hertz uses better components, but nonetheless, there are certainly many worse options

    Re: whats better?

    That's a tough choice. Since my Polks are 2 ohms also, it'll be much louder than the 4 ohm versions...same with the jbl.

    Which is gonna sound "better" is really install dependent with clean wattage going to either....and after some fine tuning.

    So your wanting to experiement? Sure why not....people do to get that crystal clear sound. It's not uncommon for brands to be mixed.

    I've used those JBLs in a few builds and thought they were great for the price. I've always been a fan of JBL/Harman/Infinity lineup though.

    only if you have an active capable head unit then yes it'll be miles better than the jbls or any components. IF you dont have an active capable head unit then it'll be garbage.

    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS................................Mids/Highs amp: CT 500.2, ppi 600.2, ppi 900.4 bridged
    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.
