    1st. Let me say that I originally went cheap to save money and bought a planet audio so called 1500 watt amp.paired with a kicker compS 10 inch built in to a pre made kicker ported box. I thought the planet crap audio was fine. But it went out. So i had to get a new one. I didnt want to cheap out this time. I learned my lesson. Got this amp and geeebus this little amp is a beast for what sub and rms i needed. Its base hits hard but clean and clear. Literally. Its night and day. This amp was 119$ on sale for me. Thats 2xs the anount of the old crap amp. But 10000% worth it. I give you my word. This amp if paired to a 150-250 rns sub will make you happy. Unless u need to wake the whole neighborhood. Jk. Good luck either way.

    I usually hook up a amplified bazooka with a passive sub in the car but I didn’t seem to get the sub to thump .. I used a line converter and the amp with the 8” passive bazooka and wow ... it was actually too powerful .. it made the sub almost pop out of the tube .. even bringing the gain down low it made the car vibrate the paint off I was considering purchasing a bigger bazooka but I just returned it and got a 150 watt .. if you have the speakers that can hold the power of the amp .. I would highly recommend it .. the amp is small and easy to hook up ..

    VERY powerful/accurate for a 300 watt amp.

    This amp is really good. I bought it because the JBL 600.1 amp that I bought in 2004 finally gave out. I was skeptical if this amp would be enough for the two 12 inch JL Audio W3s I had. This amp pushed those subs fully without even being turned up 3/4 of the way (w/out bassboost turned on). I also tried this amp with a Kicker 12 inch SoloBaric L7 which handles 750 watts rms/1500 watts max and this amp surprisingly has more than enough power to properly satisfy that sub. I would recommend this amp for sure. I'd also recommend paying the extra $24.99 to get the Kicker bass remote knob to control the sub level from the front seat. It makes adjusting the bass very convenient.

    300w RMS is pretty darn good for such a small unit. I have it connected to a 10” 300w DUAL (brand) sub in a ported enclosure. It sounds fantastic and is way more powerful than the 300w DUAL amp that blew on me. For such a small sub, I have to dial back the amp from 11 (kickers go to 11, lol) all the way down to 2. But even at 2, this unit sounds great and noticeably bumps without too much rattle and random vibrations in my car. 2013 WRX premium hatch and this unit paired with a 10” is more than enough for such a small car

    Perfect Amplifier Pairing for my Kicker Subs

    I went with the Kicker 300W amplifier just because it pairs perfectly with my two 10" Kicker enclosed box subwoofers. I plan to upgrade in the future because it can just barely handle what I'm running through it right now, so I'm not getting the two sub's full potential exactly, but for the price, I couldn't beat it. I WILL be back for an upgrade. Ask for Joe Rodriguez, the man is a great friend and will help you with any questions that you might have.

    This is seriously a great product. This little amp is hoked up to my factory head unit and I love it the bass is turned all the way down and it stilll hits really hard and low. I also have kicker 6 1/2 components in the front and 6 1/2 coaxials in the back the highs and mids are great even with no additional amp to them just stock head unit. I would defenetly recomend this product to anyone that wanted bass at an affordable price

    I use this to power a single Kicker 12-inch 2ohm subwoofer with enclosure. Sounds great. Plenty of power. I tapped into my factory rear speakers and used the hi-level amp inputs - they work great. No noise or anything odd. The remote control feature is awesome - I bought the kicker remote control and adjust bass level from the driver seat as needed. Have already recommended this amp to my friends.

    Small, lightweight and doesn't overheat. It is well-built and provides plenty of power for my 10 inch subwoofer inside of a custom-built fox box for my 2014 Dodge ram crew cab. It doesn't overheat on longer trips and has plenty of features (such as remote volume knob controls). I highly recommend this amp for a 8 inch to 10 inch subwoofer.

    Picked up my amp, and took it home to install in my car. It didn’t matter what I tried, it would not work. Returned the amp to Best Buy, and they replaced it...no questions asked. The next day, I installed the new Amp...without a hitch. The increased power was impressive. I was truly impressed how much deeper the bass was compared to the amp I had been using for 4 years. I would recommend this amp to anyone.

    The standard stereo in my son's Honda Civic wasn't good enough for his finely tuned ears so he decided to add some umphh to his music. The base, while not the deepest or most expensive available, is loud enough to alert me inside my home when he's pulling into the driveway. Is that enough base? Apparently, that's a matter of generational opinion. He's thrilled with it. But, he's 16 years old so it's relative.

    I went to the store to pur chase this. I rarely buy anything online. Mainly because if I ask for someone who specializes in a specific department (automotive and stereo), I'm trusting their judgement. This amp probably would work fine if your using it on a series of speakers, not a sub. Ended returning for a jbl. ALWAYS VERIFY THE WATTS/OHMS BEFORE YOU CONNECT AND POWER UP!!.

    Ideal amplifier for a subwoofer

    This is powerful and fits under the passenger seat well. It provides plenty of power for my subwoofer. Only concern is that is a mono output - so it really is only good for powering a single item - but that would be understood in the initial purchase - it's just that if you changed your mind later on and pair it with more than one device - you would have to purchase another amplifier.

    When i read about the reviews on this amp, I wanted to hear it for myself, I installed it in less than a hour and connected it with a pair 12 MTX in a sealed box and this litter 300 amp does the job. It has the bass i wanted plus the added crossover and gain control that you will find in more expensive models, this amp is worth the money.

    This amp is great for many reasons. First and foremost, it produces clean and full sound. I replaced a kenwood amp with this little guy and the still attached kenwood subwoofer now sounds amazing. The fact that it accurately detects when my car is on and off without the need for a remote wire pushes it over the top.

    For an amp this size and only 300 watt rms I ran a 12" kicker comp r and sounds very nice. I was surprised by the power of this little amp. I played it at almost max have no issues. No overheat no shutting off none whatsoever.

    You don't need an LOC for this device. You can wire this using speaker to RCA cables. Don't let store sell you an LOC. The amp has the KIT (KISL) internal converter that allows you to install using line level or low level inputs into the same RCA inputs with the push of a button. Works great in 2015 Ram 1500 Reg cab

    This was purchased along with a kicker sub, this amp is a great size if your trying to keep it hidden or tucked away. I would recommend a subwoofer @ 2ohm so u can get full power of the amp rather than 4ohm and just getting 150watts

    Ive been buying Kicker Amp for years, I usually buy bigger mono blocks from them but this time around I was building a very small system and I must say this Amp does a lot for a small guy. Clean power, my two 8s were flexing pretty hard for what I running to them. Great job Kicker

    I purchased this to put in my wrangler jk for the factory sub. I havent Installed it yet but checked it with the 4 6" subs in my superduty and it worked as well as the higher priced amp I am using now.

    Great starter amp for one 12 inch woofer, or if you miss the base but have a family and don’t wanna destroy your kids ear drums it’s adequate for the job! Quiet enough when kids in the car but can be turned up when your driving with adults
