Summary: Purchased amp to pump 12"type r,for sons first stereo. Been out of the loop for many years and didn't know what's good or bad. One thing you never forget is u can't go wrong with alpine. Put it this way he won't forget his first stereo.
Summary: This amplifier works amazingly! My subwoofer gets a great kick out of it, maximizing its potential. For reference, i have the Alpine SWR-12D4 and it was a huge step up from the 12 inch Kicker CVR. For a noticeable increase in bass, definitely invest in this!
Pros: Easy setup, leads to quality bass provided you have a matching subwoofer. Great product and
Cons: Makes the sub so powerful, your car may rattle. This would probably happen no matter what, so if you do get the amplifier, be sure to invest in hush mat or something to reduce the rattle in your car.
Summary: This unit rocks. Went from hifonics 500 x 2 bridged. Not even close in comparison. The alpine drove my subs with fierce power. Very tight controlled sound. Have an old kenwood excelon kdc X615 with only 1.8 volt pre out n I still have the gains only set 3/4 or I will blow the subs out of the box. The birth sheet came as 1152 watts @ 2ohms. Didn't even fine tune it yet and I'm already satisfied. Thought my subs where shot but the hifonics unit is junk.
Pros: Strong tight clean controlled bass. Lots and lots of power. Very easy to set up.
Summary: Love this AMP!! Well worth the money. I bought this to power a single rockford fosgate P3 12 (wired at 1 ohm in factory box). I have the amp turned up about 3/4 of the way and it POUNDS! This amp puts out plenty of clean power with no distortion. All of the wiring terminals feel very solid so there is no worry about loose cables.
