Has anyone had any experience with these amps powering subs or top+mid and if so what rating would you give them out of 10 as im looking to purchase a couple but iv never had a go with them

Also how do they stand against the Lab Gruppen FP6400's ?

I would probably say PKN for Sub and Lab for Mid-Top

To me PKN sounds better on tops then fp6400. On subs too. 
fp14000 is another beast.

PKN sound great on tops. It's against the common sense don't use Class D on anything above 1K, but hey - the proof is in the pudding. I just happen to be selling 5... xe6000

I have 3 PKN XE6000, for me pefect, have not used any other amps so cant compare, but have never run out of head room

i also use XE2500 for HF duties on my 3 way tops and for stage monitors, only minus is i have an XE4000 which has a problem with an internal temp sensor, have contacted PKN to see i can re-calibrate this my self or if i need to send it back
No, it is not a line array it is some well stacked boxes...............

The PKN XD4000 is similar in output capabilities to the FP6400, both has 155Vp output as I remember..
The XD6000 or XE6000 is far larger.

Please keep in mind that the FP6400 is far older technology by 10+years or so,  PKN (even the XD) is much more modern amplifier with PFC power supply and top-level limiters. The overall conversion efficiency of the PKN is also better since it has no linear post-regulators like the FP.

The sound character of the PKN is better in my aspects and it is not only due 500KS sample rate.

Iv a/b a pkn6000 vs matrix on tops and the matrix was miles better .

same with my lab 1600's they were far better but the pkn took care of bass/sub really well .
