    NOT A TRUE 1500

    i used a Dyno for this amp and wasnt expecting it to be a true 1500w when i seen it the peak on this amp which means full blast on gain and bass boost ect.. i got 1.089w I hooked it up to my subwoofer that is a jl 12w6v2-D4 and its 600w rms this amp is supposably 550w rms I hooked it up to 500 watts on a smd and the amp was getting pretty hot relatively quick you also got to think I have a competition subwoofer on a little amp if you want a true 1500 you're going to have to spend at least 300 for a new amp overall for a beginner or someone who just wants Bass and doesn't matter about really loud Bass this is perfect for you but for my fellow bass heads that want your windows to flex this isnt for you. 3 start is my rating for this amp only because of what you get for the price would be a 4 to 5 start if you could buy for 170$ i think thats a fair price anyways i hope this helped and don't let my post scare you away from it just know you cant push huge sub/subs good for 300w-500w sub or subs I may go out and trade this one in and try one more to make sure it wasn't a faulty amp but the amp seems 100% fine as far as I can tell test was today and my purchase was today.

    Using these on my old nearly two decade old Kenwood BP-210. This amp gets the job done with gusto on these old thumpers. If you know what you are doing and know what to look for, the information is all there for you. How much RMS, at what ohms, etc... The adjustments are a little loose, but I have not had them bee so loose as to shift themselves. The connections for wires couldn't be easier to handle. Just loosen the screw, feed in the wire and tighten the screw down. Done. I would leave the bass booster off as it just makes the sound muddy, but everything else works the charm on mid to low power systems that you just want some more bass from subs that aren't insane.

    I bought this amp to upgrade from my Pioneer GMA 3602 and I do mean an upgrade. This amp is about the same size as my Pioneer gma3602 and puts out more watts. I have a 12 inch JBL sub but it's 8 ohms so the amp is putting out about 185 Watts instead of 370 Watts at 4 ohms which don't sound like a lot but I only have 4 inch speakers and I don't want to drown them out. This amp also has 2 speaker terminals even though it's a mono amp for more flexibility, variable frequency adjustment, variable bass boost and it's a class d amp. When I first saw this amp I did not hesitate to purchase it because of the price on Black Friday for $100. Wow talk about being lucky.

    I currently have this amp powering a single 12 inch Kicker CompR and it does a great job. Plenty of power, decent adjustment ranges for the high/low filters, and sturdy wire input terminals. My only complaint would be the size of the wire inputs. Had to fight to cram a 4 gauge power and ground wire into it where I would normally use 0 gauge. Awesome amp though for a good price.

    I’m running this amp with two kicker Comp r 10 inch subs. There is more than enough power and it’s also a great amp for a truck when your limited on space. The built quality is excellent and it also looks amazing. There is a lot of neat setting that other lower model amps don’t come equipped with however this is top shelf product if compared to kicker

    NOT 1500 Watts!!! STOP BUYING MISRATED AMPS!!!!

    This is a 500 watt amp @ 2 ohms. Period! If you have a single voice coil (SVC) 4 ohm sub it will put maybe 250 watts to it. If you have a SVC 2 ohm or a dual voice coil 4 ohm (DVC) you MIGHT get 500 watts. The only time this MIGHT get to 1500 watt is if you run it off 20v in 1 ohm - and either blow all your fuses or the amp its self.

    Purchased this amp for my fiancé to match up with a JBL CX1200 and it sounds pretty good. Sound quality is clean and bass is more than strong enough for what she wanted, but I'd prefer a little more thump. Overall impressive amp and if you're looking for an affordable upgrade to your audio system definitely look into this amp! Great buy!

    First time I have ever been inside a Best Buy store and I had a great customer service and great product experience. I was asked if I needed help and I said I was looking for a strong bass add-on for my truck and the associate was well knowledgeable of the systems so he put together a set of what I was looking for and it sounds just great!
