    What is everybodies take on Audiobahn amps?

    specifically, the A1500HCX for a sub, & the A2801Q
    for some door speakers for my Silverado Ext cab.
    Speakers have not been decided on yet....

    TIA....Cam

    If you look up the opinions on some other car audio websites you will generally read that Audiobahn is more "flash" then substance. A friend of mine used a 2 channel Audiobahn (don't know the model off hand) for his rear 6x9s and it sounded ok to me but for the money there is better equipment out there.

    I am impressed by the THD #'s.

    All of them claim to be either .02% or
    .03%, which beat a BIG percentage of all
    the amps that cost ALOT more for same
    RMS watt output.

    Cam,
    Just like Home Theater, manufacturers are prone to 'creative measurement'. IOW, you can't directly compare THD numbers between manufacturers (unless you're doing the measurements with the same test bed). Check out & search caraudioforum.com for more options.

    i'll tell you what every audio guy will....AUDIOBLOWS. They are highly overrated and are more for rappers who want bling bling. If you want to know a good measure for car audio and what they market thinks about them, check ebay, cause if the consumer doesn't like it they sell it low and if they like it it goes for little less than MSRP. Audiobahn will leave you wanting a better amp. If you want a good amp find Hifonics, they were sold to another company and people thought they went downhill so their products sell pretty cheap on ebay. But really they haven't changed too much. You can get a good RMS amp for 250$. I'd try them before Sony, Kenwood, MA Audio, Pioneer, MTX, Rockford, or most of the "store" brands.
