I thought it was out but if not here is the same thing with arguably better cosmetics, i don't care for the black and copper in our interior i think this fits a little better and look at that price...

So is the consensus that the PPI stuff has gotten better? From what I remember reading on DIYMA the internals are basically 1-for-1 from the Hertz amp. From what I've seen the PPI900.5 has never been available outside a few people who got them to test them. I check Sonic Electronix every once in a while to see if they have one and they never do.

My original idea that I was going to do in my Mini was a P900.4 and a P1000.1 driving a set of Hertz Hi-Energy HSK163's and a pair of DynAudio Esotec MW182's. Obviously I won't be using those Dyn's in the BRZ. I figure if I gut that foam around the spare tire I should be able to fit them in there.

Something like that. I think I should be able to fit the two amps and the Bit10 in there along with a sub enclosure if I use the right shallow mount sub. If I end up going with the 3sixy.3 I might have to drop down to one amp just to save space.

I would say seems like a sound idea.... tho I would still pass on a shallow mount sub. they work if you reallly need it but they just dont perform as well as a normal sub at the end of the day.

Well aside from I think it was 2formes. I dont remember and cant see pics at work. But he was running an oldschool one that works pretty well.
