Now notice the second amp.

Install should be interesting, first build thread with mini amps.

Not disrespecting your decisions, but what led you to these over other mini amps like the nvx?


Reason probably is Rockford fosgate has the best resale value .........also it rockford fosgate

initially wanted to get the nvx actually, but a couple days before purchase the prices went up by 50usd each and the rf went down by a 10-20usd
and after looking at the amp dyno tests on the rf,and other reviews they seemed a decent alternative

Found they looked kind of fishy for iridiums from the dustcap.

Nice set though.

I wanna try the exodus anarchy.

my ideal set would be from SI, their tweet and mid but i think its sold out
you will very lucky to score a pair of exodus

the flutes are quite cheap as well...around 80usd a pair and the sb acoustic goes for around 150 a pair and is touted to be the same mid woofer in arc audio black series

searching for a 1inch tweet with decent off axis response up to up to 15k or so

The exodus 4 ohm version is currently out of stock. Expecting more roughly two months from now.
Just got confirmation via email.
