I don't see why you would say of course... but if you are referring to rf under rating their amps and so they put out more power than yeah I would have to agree.

yea but mtx is also underrated. the older 1501bd was 1706 rms and the mtx 1501d is 1776 rms at one ohm. however the volts in my car dropped about 2 volts lower on the rf amps

Thanks for all the replys guys, so most of the ppl go with the rf, but the last comments took me by surprise, the rf drains a lot of power? Anyone knows if the newest model drains less power? Or its the same thing? I say this because i dont a have a high output alt, only a yellow top optima under the hood. I hear that the mtx get VERY hot, is that true? Someone told me that the mtx doesnt have a fan, is that right? Thanks guys, and i do a lot of questions because they are expensive for me and i dont want to loose my money right there.

He did say older 1501bd and I think the new bdcp is fairly efficient.

I would get the Rockford, Don't forget also that the T1500bdcp puts out 0ver 1500 wrms at 2 ohms

I look on the Saz1500D, but its a little more expensive than the RF and MTX, do you guys know if they drains a lot of power? And if they are just as great like the RF or MTX? I have never hear one before. And i was thinking if one day i want to change my setup and want to sell the Saz i though it will be more difficult to sell it, you know because of the brand, a lot of people dont know it very well like the RF. Well thanks guys!
