i will say go with genesis profile 2,and don't go with the power rating it is not necessary that the amp with more power ratings will sound better then the amp with lesser power ratings

Now the question is which one. Genesis output is low (75RMS) compared to Harmon(110 RMS). I need this amp to run Rainbow SLX delux, hence i am little inclined towards Harmon as it more powerfull.
Please advcie.
Both are good amps. I know someone who picked up Genesis 4ch (i think profile 4) over HK 4 CH.

I am running Rainbow SAX on 50W RMS they are rated 100W RMS. They blow air on my legs to keep them kool

I totally agree with karan & panky12345 here, don't go by the specs on paper and listen to various models BEFORE you buy.
I personally did experienced this. My advise would be to go for Genesis Amp over the HK.

Default Comps....which one??

Ok now the amp is done. Now the question is which Comps to buy. I wanted to know which one is better for good midbass as i listen to Trance all the time and nothing else. Optins are: Rainbow SLX Delux or Rainbow SLC KICK.

Also if someone can tell me what are there prices here in india??

SLC Kick is from Sound Line Series and must be upward of 20K. There are SLG F3 Kick which are in Noidaboy car. These were around 14K and are from Dream Line series.

SLX vs SLG F3 Kick = fair comparison and my vote goes for Kick but do listen to both

SLX vx SLC Kick NG = SLC any day wins. Comparison is not fair either.

yes even i think SLC kick much be higher than 20K, cause i was quoted 14K for SLX.
Hey what is the diffrence between SLC and SLC KICK?? I mean is it worth to spend little extra for SLC KICK or SLC is also in the same league?
And no do you think that buying SLC KICK will be ideal for the the kind of music i listen to (Trance) as i need to have better mid bass. I currnetly have Hertz ESK 165 running and think they are good for vocals but not good enough for good midbass.

SLX deluxe must be around 14K

See you cannot compare SLX / SLG with SLC. But if Midbass is what you want then go for SLG F3 Kick. Audition Noidaboys car

For SLC audition m4ugr8's car. SLC Kick will have more midbass and kick. Audition both SLG and SLC as you had Hertz ESK and love vocals.

Isn't this thread supposed to discuss about the GTO 5 channel amplifier? Gentlemen, if you want to discuss Rainbow speakers, this is not the right place, I hope you understand?

@nitinralli, if you want to change the heading of the thread, please ask - otherwise the current heading is misleading to everyone else.
