Default JL M 770's and the proper amp

Thinking of getting 2 pairs of JL M 770's, and a JL 4 or 5 channel amp (in case I want to add a sub later). I see that there are two 4 channel amps for sale on BOE, with considerable differences in price. One is a 600/4 amp and the other is a 400/4 amp. Which one should I be looking at to maximize the sound quality of the 4 M770's? If I get the 4 channel and want to add a 10" JL sub later, which amp should I look at for the sub only?

Also, are the M770's sold as a pair, or is the $309.00 price tag for one speaker only. I assume it's for the pair, but you know what they say about assumptions...

Just finished installing that exact system today on my 25' walkaround...MHD 600/4 and 4 M770s. More than enough power/bass without any sub.

I just installed the JL M600/6 channel and I have 2 JL 770's up fwd and 4 JL 650's in the back. Running it with a Kenwood KMR700U on a 27 Contender sounds good and is definitely loud enough.

And if I opt for a sub later (JL 10"), I guess I would just stack a 1 or 2 channel amp and run the system like that.

Also, does BOE have competitive pricing on JL products, or is there anyone cheaper (and certified, of course)?

Fusions newest amp, the MS DA51600 is all you need to power two pairs of JL M series speakers, and a sub either now or down the road.

Its a 1600watt, 5 channel amp, that pumps out absolutely monstrous power. You will be 80w per channel (RMS@4ohms) AND 250w for your sub (RMS). I kid you not, you will be scared to turn this all the way up.

I think the HD amps are appropriate for the m770 speakers with the regular M amp for the MX speakers.


I bought a m700/5 JL Audio Amp from BOE to power 6 MX 770 speakers and one M subwoofer and it is phenomenal. The price of the amp from BOE was unmatched.
