Arc Audio vs Hawg Wired Amps
I have a 2012 CVO with JL Audio C3-570 componenet speakers up front, powered by an Arc Audio KS 125.2 amp. I'm in the process of my winter mods, which include amoung other things, Cycle Sounds lids with Hertz HCX690 speakers. Needing an amp I was looking at the new Hawg Wired RS400. I like the idea of being able to adjust the amp with their remote. After talking with the boys at Hawg Wired, they suggested sending the HK head unit to Iron Cross Audio to have front and rear preamp outputs installed rather than an aftermarket head unit ($115). I'm thinking I want to get 2 of the RS400 amps and replace the Arc amp. Any thoughts on Arc vs Hawg Wired? I hate the thought of replacing the amp I recently installed, but I'm thinking the HW stuff is better quality, more powerful, and will have great adjutment with the remote. What do ya'all think? Loaded question I know. Bring it.
