    So it's fun if you settle for the fact that at best you can only achieve mediocre presentation when compared to even an average home stereo?


    I hate it too.

    ZAPCO = ZEFF AUDIO PRODUCTS COMPANY!
    Robert Zeff now = Arc Audio...
    Arc Audio > **With some serious slapping** Zapco


    Edit: Not to mention the new design is clean and simple like the XXK's were, the new Foose Design is a good amp internally, molded shit externally!

    So then you would remember that 4 years ago the arc 2500 and some Clarion amp that cost 1/2 as much were exactly the same. It made for a lot of fun on Elitecaraudio and at CES when me and Nukegoat were talking to the clarion and eclipse reps there.

    I just dont get into the Internet bullshit with car audio.. All i can go off of is what ive heard through our shop. The only amps that impress me these days, are the XXK, KAR, Signature, and the alpine PDX.. Nothing else sounds like it has the power it lists.

    I have to agree... and the new Kar are smaller than the old ones with more power... the only thing smaller is the PDX. Cant wait for the new Arc Eq's though...

    signature is better than..well id say pretty much any mainstream amp out there.
    Foose is a step down from XXK..
    the new KAR line is cheaper and more powerfull than the old line.
