    Clif Designs

    How many people here have heard of the company clif designs? I haven't seen much about them, and searching the site here turns up only two hits, about their speakers. I'm looking into getting (2) CD30.2LX amplifiers from them. I like their clean look and they have the RMS power range I'm looking for.

    I'm looking at getting
    (2) Cadence Audio Component Speaker kits.
    - 4 ohms/ch
    - rated 100w RMS/ch
    (1) 2004 10" Rockford Fosgate Punch P3 DVC
    - 4 ohms/coil
    - rated 400w RMS

    the CD30.2LX is a two channel amplifier rated as follows:
    200w RMS x 2 @ 2 ohms
    500w RMS x 1 @ 2 ohms

    I want to run the sub with one amp bridged with the DVC at a total 2 ohm impedance
    The second will run the components, 1 pair per channel (left and right) in parallel for a 2 ohm impedance as well.

    Does anyone know anything about sound quality from these units? I like the write ups about them, but most are from distributers and are obviously going to be biased.

    The amps are in the $150 range each (off ebay) and $200-$300 retail

    any ideas and opinions would be greatly appreciated

    I've used these amps before. They are pretty good amps but, they aren't the greatest for sub applications. Other than that, they look good and run pretty clean.

    they are ok, but looking at the board design I wouldn't say great...

    That picture there is of the CD3.2LX which was the older model, i can't imagine it changed much though.

    Thanks for the input.

    that's a lot of waisted space!

    tells me that are full of marketing hype and not much action.

    Well i ordered two units the other day. They should come in a day or two. Ill let everyone know how they go. In any case, they cannot be worse than the pyramid crap i have now...

    There is alot of wasted space in the 3.2... The 30.2 which i ordered, is about two inches narrower and a half inch shorter. So they cut down on some of the wasted space.
