Hey Tank I did hear the same thing but I never sold them and never really had to compete against them in sales so I guess I never paid attention to the rumors. One of the head engineers for PPI that designed the flat piston woofers went to work for Kicker. The guy who I think Directed made a V.P. is one of the only PPI people to stay with the company through the whole change over. He started at PPI milling the heat sinks from what my rep told me. Good success story. I don't sell the Audiobahns but I have not heard a lot of good things about them. I do know they are expensive. Look at the MMATS or Zapco amps also.
Andy How do the Nak amps sound? I haven't used them though I can sell them. Forrest
