Not being a smart azz, but it really depends on what youíre running it with and why. Pure power? Sound quality? Size? Cost?

In a bike a lot of guys are looking for big power in a small package and thatís not always the case with hertz amps. May be an awesome fit in a car, but a bike not so much.

I run a diamond 4V2 in my 16 because itís a great match with my 2 speaker setup. My 18 is 4 speakers and I wouldnít even consider that amp for that application as it would be a total turd with that setup. Both bikes have hertz speakers.

The 4V2 bridged in a heartbeat in that setup.
Ton of power.
Better than average SQ.
Fits like a glove above the headlight, no amp tray needed.
Reasonably inexpensive for that much power.

Why not a 2v2?

It would work, but a bit light on the power to the hertz for my liking. The 4V2 bridged can push them full blast all day long without breaking a sweat.
