    I m upgrading my system and completely stumped trying to decide between getting the AudioControl 4 channel DSP/Amp that gives out 125w per channel or getting a JL Audio Fix 86 and a 5 channel amp, both are good solutions. I have read every thread on audio here and adding component 6x9’s to the front and adding a JL Audio Stealthbox. I am not looking for huge volume just a clear sound. Also I don’t care about hobby tuning or a 32 band graphic equalizer.

    Just for clarification the AudioControl I can get for about $600 new and I could get a refurbed JL Fix 86 and JL 5 channel for the same cost. Thoughts?

    For ease of use and less complexity I would go with the audiocontrol. Both brands make quality products though, so either way you go you'll be fine.

    I went with a fix86 and an HD900/5.....I haven't finished the install so I have no real world experience with it yet. But jl makes top notch stuff and using the fix86 is "future proofing" for me so I can get better speakers up front at some point. I'm running focals but want to go higher end eventually.

    I got a Mickey Mouse antenna ball. Does that count?
    So, based on your two options, I’m guessing you’re wanting to stay with the stock head unit?
