I probably would have gone with a Brax amp, but I wanted 5 channel capability. I also couldn't find one for a good price.

Here's what I went with:

The Helix amp you are looking to purchase is PHENOMINAL. I have personally installed these and the sound quality that is produced by these amps are outstanding...GREAT choice!

Ooops...I guess I meant the Helix line. I definitely wasn't prepared to pay for a Brax. I payed $425 for a new amp from someone who never installed it.

You can find all Arc Audio specs from their website:

Arc Audio Amps

Arc's 4-channel amps are supposed to be fantastic!

Helix amps are great. They aren't the most hard hitting but very clean and extremely small. They do run kind of hot though.
