Amp selection

My PBR300X2 amp order got cancelled by vendor. I am taking this as a sign I should reconsider my options. Other amps I was considering was the Soundstream PN4.520 or the PN4.320. Also considering the Alpine MRV-F300. This will power a pair of Focal 165 AC in stock location.

SS gets a lot of praise by some of you but I worry about losing FM reception. What is that caused by? Anything I can do to fix or prevent it? Is the PN4.520 overkill for the 165 AC?

Anyone have experience with the Alpine MRV-F300? It is 8" x 8" x 2". Will this fit in the fairing?

Anybody running the JL JX360/2? Of the four listed in this post (Alpine MRV F300, RF PBR 300x2, JL JX360/2, or the Soundstream PN2.350) which one would you recommend to run a pair of Focal 165 AC?

With the Sound Stream you don't loose the FM, it can interfere with it, just as any class D amp which is most of the amps out there for MC's, my Hawgwired amps gave me some interference also, I hooked up a filter and have been good to go since. Also if you're only using one amp and mount it in a similar position to where Nor Cal has his amp mounted, you shouldn't have much of a problem.

Norcal - very clean install. Nice.

Dbell - that is the same location I plan to mount. Leaning toward the JL JX360/2.

I use JL amps, but a friend of mine have a kenwood xr400-4 that has the same specs as the JL
Xd4/400 but can fit in the inner fairing. I'm thinking of switching.
