Summary: So I'm kind of on the fence with this amp. I went with it based on a recommendation from an advisor here. I specifically went with this amp because it's rated at 800 watts at 1 ohm. I have 2 DVC 12" Kicker that I specifically wanted to wire in parallel for 1 ohm operation.
Pros: Sound quality, Runs cool. Looks Cool. Unit has a variety of measures that will prevent it from over heating.
Cons: Don't seem to be getting rated power. Description and Alpine Website states that you don't need a remote turn on wire but the manual never mentions not using a remote turn on wire.
Summary: Best mono amp in this class I've ever owned. I have had a lot of Rockford Fosgate amps (new and old school ie: punch 150) as well as some others in this wattage class. I have to say that this is my first Alpine amp, and I am really impressed with it.
Summary: i'm a true believer of you get what you pay for. I'm not going to win any DB drag contest with it but it completed my all around sound with a nice deep clean bass. My Kicker comp vz 12" never sounded so good.
Summary: Purchased this amp after having the infinity 611a for some time. I needed a little more power to push my new JL Audio 10TW3-D4's This amp is very powerful and after having it over a month I'd say it's well worth every penny!
Pros: Operates cool at 1ohm.
Great power for multiple subwoofers.
Summary: Very nice amp, easy to install and tune. I have it in my ranger ext cab on 2 swr10d2 subs and it's gonna rattle my truck to pieces. I have it tuned at 25hz. I literally need ear plugs now cuz I can't keep the volume down.
