    The IX line I mentioned on page one. The IX500.2 is good power the 4 or 6 pod KM6500.2 setup. The IX500.4 is awesome power for the 4 pod setup and a pair of IX500.4's for the "6-Pack".

    Correct. Most of the zx mono's are Class-D, but not all and none of the stereo/multi-chnl full-range zx amps are Class-D. The Zx/ZXM 700.5 is a 5 chnl Hybrid Class AB full-range and Class-D.

    Hey guys!

    Mike at MLA has shared pretty much the two hot ticket setups usign current amps. Let me reiterate:

    For a single set of KM6500.2 components, (2 mids, 2 horns) witha power handling of 200 watts RMS your options are:

    single ZXM450.2 (class A/B) 150 watts per side
    single IX500.2 (full range Class D) 150 watts per side
    single IX500.4 (full range Class D) bridged to 250 per side


    For the 6-pack, which consists of a KM6500.2 set AND a KM6500 set (4 mids 2 horns) I strongly recommend the following:

    pair of IX500.4 each one bridged to give 1000 watts of tower power
    pair of ZX300.1 (class A/B) with a KX2 crossover for hi-pass filtering


    Or if you want to kick it old school, one of the old 850.2 stereo amplifiers will drive either setup quite well. Just know if you find an old 850.2 is will probably be used or a refurb.

    Hope that helps

    Phil Kicker

    hey phil , how hard is it to swap these into a 09 roswell speaker light bar as in the above pic. I've heard there is no lip or something just the back can center screw. Boat is far away so can't just go out and look at it.
