Point being, I've pretty much only run PA for the last couple years. Hard to justify spending 2-3 times the money for the same power but a different name.
    Amen

    if you planning to resell, the rubicon probably will keep its value more than the bamf 5500 since the rubicon has a better brand name but either will work

    No pissing contest, I made a lil comment and he proved how butthurt he really is. He clearly has some sort of ego complex and I would guess he's probably a ni99er on top of it.

    Someone asked a question, I gave an answer and he brought his uneducated, smart *** opinion in here for no reason. He easily could have searched BEFORE making a comment and adding to the stereotype that you have to pay out the *** to get decent power. Yes, you can spend $250k+ on a Lamborghini that will run a 10 second 1/4 mile. However, if that's all you're looking for, and not an "image", why not spend $10k~ for a car that will do the same thing? My budget setup beat a $4K~ JL setup by like 2.5dB, did it sound as good, not in my opinion. However, I was louder and the audible difference to the average person isn't nearly enough to justify an additional $3500~

    I said their names in the same post, OBVIOUSLY that means I think the only difference is the name, duh... Ignore Timmy, he's clearly a moron.

    So now you are comparing a lambo to a honda? JL is not about the dbs. I would expect a 4er to know that. You just proved how invaild your opinion is. Thanks for clearing that up

    Re: power acoustik bamf 5500 or soundstream rubicon 2500.1

    and OP honestly, if you looking for a good 2000 rms amp, get a DB Drive PD2000.1 rated 2k @ 1ohm, but actually will do 2500 RMS @ 1 ohm and 3k plus @ .5ohm.
