BTW, I recently replace my class AB JL audio amps 4x75 and 1x300 watts for the Alpine PDX5 and PDX2 class D amps. I like the sound of the alpine amps, and they do not draw as much current as the class AB amps.

I can't say enough about Focal products. You DEFINITELY get what you pay for.

The audiocontrol box is my DSP. I use it to tune every aspect of my system. My head unit / Navi is set to use no filters or built in crossovers and the EQ is completely set flat. I didn't like the restrictions of the head unit. If you changed one requency slightly it would automatically try and match the next setting with it. The audioctrol DSP gives me 100% control of everything. It's a really great product.

As far as the PDX line of amps. I haven't found any other brand / line of products that give you as much as the Alpine PDX. The amps are somewhat costly but its worth the price.
