Default New Guy looking for help

Hello all hope you can help I have a 2005 Yamaha RSTD with a wide open plastics Fairing. Running a JVC KD R720 head deck and 4 Polk Audio MM 521 Speakers. Looking for a good amp I have been told either the Arc Audio 125.2 or the Bazooka CSA-4 XA MC. Can anyone please point a low experianced person in the proper direction. Thanks alot all.

There is no denying that Robert Zeff makes an excellent product, however keep in mind that the Bazooka amplifier has 4 channels versus the 2 of the Arc Audio. This will allow you control of the output of the front or rear speakers by using the fader on the headunit. Running the Arc Audio at a 2 ohm stereo load, which will be your only option if you want to connect all 4 of your speakers, will leave you unable to use the fader function of the headunit.

I would choose the Bazooka. And while I am obviously biased towards Bazooka, here's why. I know for sound quality, I am looking for balance and detail within the music. This means that I am focusing on the useable power of the amplifier. If I keep a 4 ohm load on the amplifier, this leaves me with more useable power versus dropping the amplifier into a 2 ohm load.

Both are fine products as well. If you are interested in any other brand your best bet is to contact the manufacturer or visit their website and see if they have a forum.
