    they both are new class D amps, so they use less power.
    Both are going to cost right about the same.
    both fit in my space requirements
    and both put out the amount of power that i need

    Ive always had pioneer decks so i have preference for the pioneer one

    A little debate and feedback would be great
    also i just returned a pioneer gm 4 channel, which is why i am a little indecisive, that was putting out a little white noise, i worked with Mr Marv to figure that out and he recommended the PRS

    can't really go wrong with either. It's just a preference to what you like better. Both should be just fine.


    It used to be so much easier to chose an amp. I always liked the American made amps. Usually top notch quality, lots of features and powerful.
    A/D/S
    PPI
    Orion
    Zapco
    Phoenix Gold
    Linear Power
    Any of the major brand names like Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood

    There are so many more choices than there used to be 15 years ago. And most of them are better than what we had back then, and cheaper. The ones back have changed so much since then, it's hard to tell anymore.

    both are great amps, i have heard a few people complain of noise on the alpine. don't know as i've never used one. i think the pioneer is a little cheaper. i think this is the one you're looking for
