2dr. reasons why? both are the same price, but PPI is refurbed. I thought PPI was higher end which is why this is a hard decision for me.

the old PPIs were considered high-end... the newer PCX line isnt what is used to be... I'd go with the kicker amp.. you'll be happy.

Or if you can find a used PPI Art or the PPI chrome series *drool*

there's supposedly a challege that a man out there that for $100 entry, will pay $10k if you can identify out of 20 random plays of music, the difference between any two mainstream amplifiers all other things being equal.

he's still got his $10k

i'm sure it is impossible to identify what type of amp you are listening to, but change the rules to which one is better, he can say bye bye to his 10k
