im looking at the kicker kx300.4 i see that the signal to noise ratio is ">95dB" now, my HU has a S to N ratio of 105dB (its a kenwood excelon) why such a difference? will this difference bear itself when i change my amp? btw, im big on clarity of my music rather than power, so S to N ratio is an important factor. anyone have any thoughts on this?

You must remember that the snr will drop (in general) the more it's amplified. The HU may have a 105 dB rating on the pre-amp section or the cd read section, but most amps do not break the 100 dB snr range.

If you want clarity, also check out these specs...

slew rate: basically how fast the amp works, has to overcome inertia

total harmonic distortion: get this as low as possible

Remember this though, there are amps that claim outrageousely awesome specs, but totally suck when it comes to real world performance.
