Have you listened to them? That's what i'd do, and then decide which one i liked better.

^^^ What he said......take a CD you know really well and find a shop where you can listen to them.

Personally I like the KW shallow subs....had a couple of chances to hear them in a similar vehicle to yours and in the right box they did a great job in a pretty small space.

If you already have a 4 channel I would be looking for a new sub amp myself. If you're going to stick with one sub a good class A/B 2 channel will be cheaper and last longer running at it's rated load of 4ohms mono. If you want to add another sub there are lots of 2ohm mono Class D amps that will do the trick.

The 4 channel can always be bridged to run your fronts or you can go active with it as well provided you have the Xover capability to do it that way.....

HTH

I would like to listen to them also the only ones i can possibly find around here would be rockford... No one has ID products around here.... i've never herd but good things out of there stuff though. ( the audio shops around me leave alot to be desired... )

Bigred, was that kenwood in a ported or sealed...

I have a 800watt 2channel in my other vehicle so i've just got to decide what im going to run and then i'll get the amps to make it all work well...I just thought that 4channel...would power them fronts and the sub... for the time being.... Will them ID's get loud... they perty good about there warrantys...

Use B-quiet and deaden the doors yourself. Its really easy. Just make sure the surface your applying it to is clean (no grease)
