Congrats on the upgrade!! I don't know if I've ever read a comparison between the 180's and 305's... wonder if the difference is anything like the Sunfire Signature vs standard amplifiers? Either way I imagine the added headroom will help draw out the little details that might of been missed previously. It would be interesting to hear your impressions of the upgraded amps compared to stock. Too much fun!

Come to think of it I have not read any comparison between the two. There is not a whole lot on here about these amps, I wonder how many members have had a set of 180's or the 305's.
