View Full Version : amps?
08-07-03, 02:56 PM
I just got myself a nice 300zx 2 seater n/a. I have alpine deck 60x4. I was thinking of a profile amp since its not as expensive. Or Power Acoustik amps. I'm thinking about jl audio subs or a kicker. Still thinking anyone has any experience of any of these products or reccomend any other products? Please post me websites for car audio sites too thanks!
I have an older California Series Profile amp in my old beater Blazer 4X4. It's held up pretty good, but it's kind of wimpy as far as power. But it was very cheap and I don't need much in a beater. I have several older Rockford-Fosgate amps in a couple other cars. These totally rock in comparison. Much better sound quality and underrated power... they actually push much more than they are rated. It's up to you, but I'd get something a little better than the Profile amp.

i kind of made up my mind. Im going for the 300zx stealthbox jl w6v2 10 incher. Looks very nice and not that room consuming. Also im planning to use a jl amp 250/1 or a 300/2 not really sure. Do you guys think its a good setup? I have an kenwood 4x6 2 ways and 6.5 speakers and tweeters in the front .
You can't really go wrong with JL Audio. Get those. RF amps are loud, but the SQ isn't really all that great. RF is all about noise and SPL with their subs and amps. The SQ sub brands are JL Audio, Infinity Perfects, Alpine Type S, and Elemental Designs.
The Kicker Solobarics aren't that bad, but they're not pure SQ subs.
As for the JL, get the 10" w7 and put 500-1000W on that bitch ;) The JL's are some of the only top SQ subs that can still do crazy SPL.

i like directed's class D amps for subs and zapco amps for anything else. if zapco is to much money i also like eclipse amps. those are about as good. not quite the same and still a bit pricey but they both sound beautiful.
imo amps are the most important part of a car audio setup. the amp is what dictates the sound coming from the speakers. i'd rather have a good amp putting clean signals to the speakers than have a crap signal going into any speaker.
But an amp only amplifies the signal it receives, and if that signal is bad the amp only makes it louder. A bad amp can make a good signal crappy, but a top-tier amp won't help a stock head sound great. Therefore the head unit is #1 :)
