I was curious if anyone Knows the differences between the new MRD-M501 and The MRD-M605, I was looking to buy a new mono sub amp, The alpines look pretty good for the price range and the features, but I find that the mrd-501's are going for more money than the 605's..........Any input or opinions on the alpines or any other good mono sub amp in the same price range? Thanks

I own both and tested both on the same sub and can't honestly tell a difference in sound, i was a bit sceptical about how the amps are cheaper now but they really are still great sounding amps.  Aparently they came out with some new parts that are cheaper in production but offer the same quality.

I understand that, but somes amps respond in the low range better than others on the exact same setup.

whell with that amp you can digitally tune just the bottom end if its lacking, but don't just set the boost low and crank it, cuz thats just dumb, , but yes, this amp would be very easy to play with to get the lower octaves louder.

On that last post I meant to say alpine is cheaper, at least from what i've found but i didn;t like PG's 1.0%thd isn't that audible? Hey alpine guy. does the m605 have different features than the m501, I still cant figure out why its more expensive.
