planet audio amp?

ok i still havent gotten an amp for my front stage ( a set of focal access 165's) but i found a planet audio amp that i can get for 250 brand new. http://www.planetaudiousa.com/main/593 im not sure if its a good amp or not you tell me. my local dealer can get it for me for 250ish. i want a 4 channel just b/c i may add in rear fill if i dont like just the fronts hooked up. let me know what you guys think of that amp.

thanx,
Subaru_legacy

I'm running Lanzar's version of that amp -- the opti4x400d. Very similar design, but I think that PA is a step up in power.
It's been great so far (about a month). The Class D circuitry doesn't seem to be an issue for sound quality. The small size/weight is great too, but I'm chasing an alt noise problem my Zed amp in the same installation didn't have.

magnetopenguino is on a distinguished road



I'm not sure how applicable this is, but I recently got a BB1250.1 hooked up to my subs and I'm happy with the quality so far.

Those are solid amps. I almost got that amp but found out it was a tad too long.

Go with a Boss Audio amplifier, it's the same amp for WAY less money. Boss Audio and Planet Audio are the same company.

Not true. Different board, different components. That statement would then be true for: "buy a lightning audio amp cause it's the same as RF"

who told you that boss audio was same company as planet? Boss is prolly one of the cheapest and unreliable amp on the market, that's why they sell for like 20 bucks on eBay lmao!!!!

I think the assumption is that since Boss and Planet are owned by the same parent company that somehow makes them the same. As others have eluded to -- that is plain ignorance.
Buying anything from Boss over the PA Big Bang 2's would be a HUGE mistake.

Actually, since I was employeed there for just shy of 8 years, my comments are FAR from ignorance. They are based 100% on FACT.
As more and more of the PA product became rebadged Boss Audio I left and moved on to bigger things and a more honest company.
And BTW, SoundStorm Labs (SSL) is the same company as well. Again, 100% based upon fact! Same build house as PA Torq amps.
