    Excellent amp

    I bought this for my son, for his 16th Bday when I handed my old truck keys over to him. It fits easily behind the back seat of the truck ( Chevy 2500 HD Dmax crew cab) and mounted to the back wall. I have it connected to 2- 10” Kicker pro Cs, in a prefabricated sealed box underneath the back seat with woofers facing up. It replaced my 20yr old Rockford Fosgate punch 100 amp. To compare the two wouldn’t be right, as it was on its last leg and channel and was A/B powered when this one is digitally powered. Once we installed it ( very easily took 5 min to switch out) and turned the system on... WOW I was blown away with the power that this light weight amp has and the extra headroom to push these woofers way beyond their listed handling power. I’m an old 80’s bass head, and now I’m an Home Audiophile enthusiast, so I know what good clean tight bass should sound like... that said, I would Highly Recommend this amp to anyone! Sounds very clean, The controls are easy to deal with and instal was nothing. It doesn’t overheat and just keeps pounding the bass out in our case. Hopefully this will help someone with a similar set up! Don’t hesitate with this model.

    I have this installed in my 2013 Honda Accord LX-S 2 Door Coupe with Kicker - CompR Dual 12" Dual-Voice-Coil 2-Ohm Subwoofers with Enclosure in the trunk. I also have 6 ( 2 are Bud Tweeters in the car by the side mirrors). JBL - 6-1/2" 2-Way Coaxial Car Speakers with Polypropylene Cones (Pair) - Black inside hooked up to a Alpine - Power Pack 180W Class D Bridgeable Multichannel Amplifier with High-Pass Filter The only problem is Feedback from the Subs because of Honda.s Noise Cancellation System. A small white wire must be cut in the sunglasses, Internal lights area up top. My car THUMPS!!! this is loud CRYSTAL CLEAR BASS!!

    I was ready to buy a pioneer with higher specs on paper, but after talking with two different locations I was convinced that the Kicker would be the much better option especially for only $20 more. Birth sheet showed 653, so that is always nice to get a little more. Unit is nice and compact and running it hard for 30 min it wasn't even warm. Nice unit, I do highly recommend the bass knob accessory if you are using the amp with a factory stereo. I have this hooked up to the 12" CompR factory enclosure and its a perfect marriage!

    Previously I had a 2-12 inch box in my suv. The bass was thunderous. Since I was driving an suv I still wanted to be able to access the full back for transporting large stuff. Isn't that why we have an suv? I was able to take the box with 2-12's out of the car and store in the house. Well, as I grew older I grew weaker. I decided with my latest suv to go with only a single 12 inch which is much more portable. I'm glad I did. It still can get up to thunderous volumes but I can easily take it out when I need the room.

    Great for single sub amp

    I originally purchased this amp with the single Kicker 12' sub-woofer, and it did serve it's purpose great. I was running it at 600 RMS, sub was rated for 500 RMS, and I never turned the amp all the way up. I never had any issues and would recommend, I only returned because I upgrade to the Kicker dual 12' sub-woofer, and needed 1000 RMS minimum for optimization. Small amp but powerful as well.

    This amp is one of my most powerful single amps i have owed (Had 8 sub amps over the years) and is very small in size. At 2ohms to a Kicker l7s loaded 12" it plays very clear and controlled with little distortion and huge punch paired with a 2.4 farad cap i barely get a .5 -.75 volt drop at full power using a facory alternator,so it is very efficent and has not even really gotten hot.

    I got this baby installed to power my new KICKER - CompR 12" Dual-Voice-Coil 2-Ohm Loaded Subwoofer. So far so good. It provides stable power for the sub and fits under my front seat so that I can save on trunk space, which is clutch. The audio technician said that this amp pairs perfectly with the aforementioned sub, and so far so good. I can't even imagine how loud you'd have to turn your music to max this system out, but I don't think I'll ever get there.

    I am 45 yoa, and I am probably getting to old to have my car vibrate with so much bass. I previously had an amp pushing about 268 watts, and wasn’t ready for how much bass an ~ 400+ amp would produce...and this is a very low wattage amp compared to what my speakers can handle. This amp was recommended by the Best Buy car audio staff, and I am glad that I listened.

    This amp replaced an aging Alpine sub amp on a 10”, dual voice coil, long throw woofer in a sealed box. The old amp which used to push a 12” sealed sub started cutting out due to age. This one was a great replacement. Drives the sub effortlessly in my daughters Elantra Coupe. Added a capacitor to insure it has the power it needs.

    Purchased this a little over a month ago to power a 12” CompR sub in a ‘17 Focus ST. I dig it. Surpassed my expectations, and I still have it set at half power. You do need to follow the break in protocol to avoid blowing the sub, any sub, but after that first week it’s good to go. I would recommend both the Kicker amp and sub to anyone in the market for bass.

    This amp is awesome. It does not take much space but it's one powerful little guy. When you first open the box, you'll see the certificate that tell you the rating of your specific amp which is a plus. Unlike some cheap ones that say they are 1xxx watts but barely move anything. For this price, you will get a well built quality amplifier that will make you love your car stereo even more.

    Can't Go Wrong With Kicker

    It work’s perfect for my set up. Installed in my 5th gen Camaro. I paired with: (A) Kicker Z-Series 2-Channel Amplifier Installation Kit; (B) Kicker CompC Loaded Enclosures Single-Voice-Coil 4-Ohm 10in. Subwoofer. Sounds like an amazing surround sound and this amp is powerful enough to run a much more commanding subwoofer; if you are into that sort of thing.

    All in all, it's a Kicker product. One of few companies that have never let me down. This amp really delivers. Currently running it with (2) 10" Kicker Comps and Pretty sure it would handle a set of 12"ers just the same. Excellent choice with a good pricetag.

    I added this to the factory sound system in my 2017 Mustang with a custom box fitted to the side of my trunk(perfect tucked in fit) with a Kicker 12" sub. BLOWN AWAY by how tight the bass was. Now, my son has the same amp powering his Alpine system with Nav. and a JL Audio custom fiberglass enclosure in his Trailblazer and sounds great there too.

    Had not purchased a subwoofer or amp in a while. Have to say it sounds perfect with the 12' kicker comp r. It's currently running at 4 ohm so it's only putting out 300 watts but boy does it sound good. Can't wait to bump it up to 600 watts. Would and did buy another amp just above this one that has 1200 watts rms. Cant wait to hook it up in my truck.

    I went in to purchase a 12" kicker enclosure and a pioneer amp, but the installer recommended this one. I am glad I went this route as it is perfectly matched. I also opted for the remote bass knob and I can't imagine having this setup without it. It is a must have accessory in my opinion. I had this amp installed in a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

    Decided to try a DIY installation with my son in his BMW. Another car stereo place laughed when I told him it was a BMW. Probably would have struggled but the Best Buy tech gave me some free pointers on how to connect everything up. The gear sounds great. The install was pretty easy after a little homework on the Internet. Now I'm the cool dad!

    Amp is very small in size. Takes up little space. I got it in the back of my 2002 formula hooked up to a 10” sundown e10. 4 ohms. Small sealed box that fits in the left side. Setup absolutely slams. Very impressed as I didn’t expect much out of such a small amp. Exceeded my expectations by a lot.

    The amp provides plenty of power to my kicker sub. I messed with the gain and frequency and got the perfect sound out of it. Although it is a 1200w Amp it definitely feels a lot more powerful. I have a CompS Kicker in my GTI and it sounds a lot better now and the Amp never cuts off like my previous one. Great buy!

    I have a 2017 Jeep Wrangler, didn't know much about systems, the install guys pointed me in the right direction and 2 weeks later everything was installed and it sounds amazing. I have had a lot of Audio guys tell me that I did good with the purchase. So i am super happy with the outcome.
