Thanks in adance.
Really it's about the ability to parallel speakers. Nothing more, nothing less. The ARC is constant power thus is gonna throw 150w regardless of ohm, unlike for example the HDP will throw [email protected] and [email protected]

Since I'm a guy that is not gonna put amps in my bags or TP, paralleling is always in the cards.
4 SV 165s run in parallel off channel 1/2 / A of a Hertz HDP4 will be getting 125w each.
4 SV 165s run in parallel off channel 1/2 /A of an ARC 600.4 will be getting 75w each.

ARC is a solid amp for sure, but if parallel ops is in any way in your build plan, I would not use it.

2 cents.

Has anyone tried to register their FDP's in order to claim the hopefully imminent new cable harnesses, or warranty in general? It wont accept the model, serial, cant find the product...

Hey guys running this amp, how is the fm reception with the sport? I'm not married to fm but like to listen to it at times.

Negligible to no FM reception attenuation on mine. AM and WB comes in fine too.
