    It would probably be best to pm Audiofn for info. This is his business speciality. Some times it pays to listen to a pro....

    Personally I use both MTX & Fosgate & Kenwood (tweeters) amps in different combinations and boats. Speakers are various ones,
    Kenwood Marine, Polk (great), MTX & Infinity subs. I like the Infinity & Polk 3 ways the best. Also, the seperate tweeter, midrange and sub systems are great also.

    The only amps in your list that I have any experience with are the MTX and Fosgates. I would STAY AWAY from the Kenwood. They do not make very good amps. The AudioBahn I can not speek of at any level. Lately I have used more Fosgate then anything else and the price-power-reliability is great.

    Put your best foot forward!

    yep, the fosgate rock. Audobhans seem to hit pretty hard, but im not sure how many watts they were using. compare the two if you can.

    On that list, I'd go AudioBahn...I've had experience w/ all those on your list, A.B. blows all of them away. They are becoming HUGE on the west coast. But what you should really be looking at....In order of MY preference....

    I have some end of year blowouts on Xtant and Rockford Fosgate. Last week we had a factory authorized Rockford MegaSale. I still have (8) Punch 150S, (31) Punch 200, (16) Power 250M, (18)Power 500BD, and (9) Power 1000BD. I also have many 300X, 550X and 750X four channel amps. The amps start at $99.00.

    Typically in most performance boats looking for a kick ass system I suggest (1) 500BD for two subs and (1) 550 or 750X to run four mids. I have smokin deals on BAAB in all size speakers. Visit to see the fosgate stuff or visit my site at

    For special pricing, mention OSO in your email to me at [email protected] or call (813)882-8477
