Kicker Comp C8
Released January, 2005
The Pros:Power output is enough for most people's needs. Flexible resistance settings help it work with a wider range of setups. Can handle a fair amount of use without burning out.
The Cons:Lose a lot of detail in the bass, not for audiophiles. Screw holes are a little tight, takes some work getting them installed.
