I have plenty of first hand experience with adiobahn gear and I will have to agree with Mr Teal and minitruck. Audiobahn isnt that bad if you could buy it for around.......... $1, but for the money they want for their shiny garbage you can pick up way better gear.

That audiobahn amp isn't too bad but I calculated that it would put around 2000w rms instead of 2400w. I'd personaly go with the JBL.

if ur getting a JBL.. try to consider changing a few parts inside b4 u hit the road..

i have a few friend who has a JBL playing only for a month.. mine about 4 months..

it's the cheaper model JBL600.1 afforable but.. not durable at all.

i change the capacitor .. most of it inside n trying to add a micro fan ... i'll post some pics on the modification

then this will keep u running ur JBL .. else.. u'll lose them fast.. due to the quality now are all made in korean by this OEM called chunglam or something like that..

1st physical inspection will makes u either thinking it;s from china and 2nd is it;s a real cheap amp ...

no doubt i get is pretty cheap .. but i dun expect a brand like JBL gone this low for trying to be in business or competitive ???

anyway .. a little of modification will make ur amp pump more watts to ur driver.. this... proven ... for now..

(in my humble oppinion)

the capacitor and the relay (PowerValve BP series)
also try bridging the inputs ... this will makes u gain alittle bit more... (carsounddomain discuss this b4)

anyway .. not to bring any of the budget amps down... just that.. to share from my previous experience .

if u have extra $ ... go for JL or cadence .. anyway .. my JBL now kick ***
