kicker=cleaner sound, way more power output even though it is not rated to have more(cheater amp) and much nicer cosmetics. Rockford no pros here, high heat, high distortion and low power output.

i would choose the kicker as well. i was in the market for a amp in that range awhile back and i got an xtant A6001 off ebay at a great price. ind i recommend taking a look. the only thing i dont like about the amp is im not fond of the quality of the built in crossover and sub sonic filter they are almost useless. the amp is killer esecially when put under a 1 ohm load

we sell both Kicker and RF at our shop and from experience the RF will kill the Kicker in power output. my vote is RF

Well, It seems it is a word of mouth that RF sucks now. Well, it does not. I love my RF Power 451s, best $169 spent. It plays great, CLEAN and Smooth. Compared to my Alpine, it sounds better. Yeah, there are better amps for more money, for sure. But to me, the $169 I spent (e-bay) got me the sound/performance of an amp. of at least 1.5x the price.

I wonder if people bother to listen to RF anymore. I think they just hear RF sucks, then spread the word. It really makes me sad that US acoustics for example is regarded as a great deal. Sure, lol. I paid $155 for a USX2100, sold it in a week. W/ only $14 more, I got the 451s, which is 4x times better, more output (yes, RF outputs at least the rated wattage and some more, http://www.pasmag.com/news/get.asp?ID=611&tsectionkey= ) is clean and has GREAT SQ.

Like it or not, RF products are well built. Quality is there (circuits, board) and technology too, for the Power series at least.

i agree that rockford does not entirely suck but ive owned about 4 rockford amps and my only complaint about them is they run really hot compared to all the other amps ive owned. they especially have a tendency to overheat and shut down when in a trunk in arizona heat. and the SQ was ok but agian not up to par with other amps i have aquired in the same price range BTW the other amps ive had are alpine V12,zapco,xtant so im hardly a expert and i could be wrong.
bottom line rockford is somtimes a great deal thats about it. their nothing to write home about
