    Excellent Open Box Item

    I got this amp last week to install on my car. The guy at best buy found me an open box one and I was kind of hesitant on it, but it had no damage whatsoever, and everything was still inside the box. I got it for about $30 off. I had best buy install it and everything is working beautifully. The amp was installed underneath my driver's seat, and all the wires are hidden from sight. I can't tell where they routed them. The bass boost remote was installed just under my dashboard near my hood release; Hidden from sight. The guy that installed it said that he tuned everything and I could crank the bass boost nob all the way up, but I don't need to. I have my head unit (Kenwood KDC-BT765HD) on negative 30 for the subwoofer level, and its still bumping good. I have a single 12" kicker comp S, 600 watt peak, 300 rms, with a 12 inch ported Metra box. I don't play the music all the way up, I keep it around 10-15, its that loud. I would recommend this amp 10/10 to anyone who is looking for more bang for their buck!

    I incorporated this unit into a Best Buy sub package for my SUV including: - JBL - CX Series 12" Single-Voice-Coil 4-Ohm Subwoofer – Black, Model: CX1200 - Pioneer - 1600W Class D Digital Mono MOSFET Amplifier with Wired Bass Boost Remote – Black, Model: GM-D8601 - Metra - 12" Single Ported Subwoofer Enclosure for Most Trucks and SUVs Charcoal, Model: TCTSP-112 Fortunately, most have been on sale at BB recently, and the whole package cost under $300. Cable kit and installation (if needed) will be extra, of course (~$150 at BB). It is an understatement to say that I was amazed at the quality and level of bass that I am getting out of this <$300 amp/sub combo. If your SUV needs a sub and you still have a budget to keep in mind, don’t hesitate to give this combination a try.

    Excellent match for Kicker CompR

    -Purchased this amp for a single Kicker compr (800w RMS) 1 ohm- Amplifier does not cut out, or lose volume with loud, or continuous bass. I was a little weiry to purchase a pioneer amp, as I have never owned one, or have had a friend who owned one. I would have to say I am very impressed. The amp stays nice and cool and would very easily compare to the kicker/polk version of this amp class. The remote gain is supplied but is a little hard to turn. I would recommend mounting it in a location where the actual control is sticking out where your thumb and forefinger can turn it. If it is flush with the dash it is difficult to turn. I would recommend this to a friend.

    I had a sound system installed and enjoyed it. However the bass was not as strong as I had liked. When I purchased this app, I installed it in the parking lot of Best buy, simply removing the old one and making the connections to this one. It was extremely easy to connect and when I say my bass now shakes the car when I crank it up would be an understatement. It is Rich and filling. anyone who gets in the vehicle notices the difference from just a week ago. I highly recommended for any music lover, especially one who enjoys thumping while driving down the highway.

    Decent amp kinda tricky to tune at first !! Once figured out its not to bad /im running a brand new alpine 12 subwoofer s series in 2 ohms !! Maybeits me but it seems very under powered !! It has some good low volume bass but you cant crank it to get more bass it simply levels off or fades to less power/ this amp has good clean rumble but lacks in punch /i had the alpine mrv-500 recently with a 12 memphis and that amp had some raw power at 2 ohms tons of punch it hit hard until the amp blew its fuses and smoke the sub with no explanation never worked since it was only a few months old

    Best Amp for my Factory deck,Delivers Bass I need.

    This is the best amp for my Toyota Camry factory deck. I have 2 alpine Type S and they sound amazing. Very clear loud and clear bass. I like that it comes with a wired remote that I ran to the front of the car. I can now control the bass since I only have a factory deck. Before I would have to keep messing with the bass by going back in the trunk to access the amp. Now its as simple as turning the knob to the desired bass. I'm loving this so far. Have no thermal or heating issues. Also very affordable.

    I've been running this amp hard for about 2 months now at 1 ohm without issue. It doesn't get hot or clip. I'm very happy with it. It doesn't have all of the features of more expensive amps but I bet it makes the full 800 watts at 1ohm if not more. I'm running an old premier championship pro 12 and it's LOUD. the remote bass boost would be better if it was a gain control but it's better than nothing. I also have a 2 farad cap on it and my lights barely dim at an idle with the volume on blast.

    This was the first time I have purchased a D-Class amplifier and this Pioneer far exceeded my expectations. Being and "old school" audiophile, it was to be an interim amp but has replaced a much larger amp will remain first string beside my (2) class A Soundstream A 50's. My JL 10W6 is happier than 2 12's and sounds like it too. Best Buy's price was exceptional.

    Bought this amp for my sons car about 2 years ago to push two kicker comp c’s at 2 ohms. It gives them all they can take without breaking a sweat. I liked it so much that I bought another one a few weeks ago at half the price after BB price matched for me. I’m about to set my system up for one ohm and then Ill really see what this Pioneer can do

    I run two 12" Infinity reference subs on this amp and it doesn't even get warm. They both pull a lot of power and it takes it like a champ. The bass boost remote is a great feature also, with it turned almost all the way down it gives the perfect amount of kick to music or if you want to be loud and obnoxious turn that bad boy up. Overall an awesome amplifier.

    I bought this amp to replace my Directed 750 amp that started to go in and out. It pushes two Pioneer Premier Championship Series 4 Ohm DVC subs nicely. I recommend running them in series. Parallel may put too much strain on the amp. I would buy and recommend this amp to anyone that wants to have a great sounding system without paying a high end price.

    Good instructions, a bit lacking in detail. Such as how to wire a single sub to the amp, but after studying the pictures in the manual all made sense (15 minutes later). Easy to mount, easy to configure, great bass boost control knob thingy, and clean power to my dual Alpine Type-R 12s. Yes both are wired as a single sub so the load is 1ohm at the amp.

    I bought this amp after researching compatibility for my Kicker 12"L7-D2ohm Wired it to 1 ohm, 750rms, not bad for a pioneer but did get disappointed after for the first time this weekend After 90 minutes of continuous playing at high volume it did overheat, that's why I'm giving it the 4 stars. But overall it's a beast in a little foot print...

    i love my amp. My factory speakers kick butt already but with my subwoofer in the back, heads turn on the regular. I drive a ML430 and I have a pioneer touchscreen stereo installed so I'm sure they work together because of the name. I would recommend this to anyone. Get it put in by a professional to save you hours of work. Money well spent.

    It's a pioneer! They always make good electronics and this amp is a solid performer. Does a little over 800 RMS @1 ohm on amp dyno. Have it running a 1.5 ohm load and it's impressed me moving a pair of cheep 12's. Hook it up right and it will not let ya down. I'm impressed pioneer...

    I have this amp hooked up to a Rockford p3d215 in a sealed Q Power Bomb Box and its slaps HARD! The bass on my kenwood radio is turned ALLL the way down. The bass knob is also turned ALLL the way down and it still slaps. This amp pushes out good power. You won’t be disappointed.

    Have this installed under the back seat in my 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 Extended Cab and this thing makes my dual kicker 12" subs hit hard for starters. Also At 2ohms final impedance it runs 800rms watts not the 600 like the box says. Also runs pretty cool for being under the back seat of a truck with little air flow

    I've been using this amp for about 6 months now in my Jeep and its been great. I listen to music daily on my drive to and from work, its been a great addition. I am using this Pioneer amp with a 13.5 JL slim subwoofer.

    Purchased this less than 6 months it stop working. Took it back only for them to tell me that they have to send it out. A total waste of time and patience. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to buy anything of this nature from here ever!

    Using this to push 3 JL 10's in a Silverado. Sounds amazing! Only negative is the control knob. It doesn't make much difference when you adjust the knob but it is good for reducing the bass by disconnecting the wire from the back........
