    They are top notch amps. I had the a 4050-XXK, only reason I sold it was because I got the 4150-XXK. Wished I would have kept it for my other car.

    yeah, im going to get it and give the old carver a rest. she has been working too long and needs a vacation. if i like it im going to pick up a 2500xxk for the subs. that massive amp is a real beast and i might want to go with something more laid back. plus christmas is around the corner, i deserve a new amp right?:D

    LOL

    I was afraid you were going to say that. But that's good, because I'd be tempted to buy it if you were selling it, and I can't afford to buy anything else right now.
