Conclusion: This amp is very powerful. I got it installed today with 2 10" JL audio vented subs. It hits harder than my friends setups and they have like 500 and 700 watt amps (they're not JL amps) JL is top of the line in subs and amps and in quality sound! Definitely a good thing to buy because the good price and how powerful it is, therefore you can get a really good wiring kit! Just put it this way, my parents got this for my setup and there pissed cause of how loud the bass is!
Conclusion: I bought this amp on impulse at the local shop. I installed it under the seat in my suv and ran the jl ported w1 8" sub/box @ 4ohm. The amp never got hot under the seat, stayed cool after long play. I never tested it @ 2ohm. I ended up buying a bigger amp to run something different. This amp won't produce more than what it is rated, but it will run it's rated power efficiantly and decently clean.
Conclusion: I've heard of JL Audio leadership in the industry when it comes to Amps, I have a JL sub(10w3) and very pleased with the performance. I decided to go with a Amp to power the sub, i was leaning towards a Alpine amp which I use to power my fronts. This amp blew me away as soon as it was connected. The reviews are well earned,im now looking to get another amp for a (12w6). You cannot go wrong, quality amp.
Summary: I have had several of these amps and they always have been reliable and strong. The slash series amps are great due to their constant power regardless of ohm load or power input. I bought the V2 only because I wanted to use the bass knob. The first version does not have that plug on it. It puts out a strong signal so make sure you have a sub that is up to the task. A good quality 10 or 12 will do great.
Summary: The amp is great! Easy to install and the detailed instructions help especially taking out the guess work on calibrating you gains, where it gives you that information to use with you dmm. The amp is stable from 1.5 ohm to 8 ohms. The output is consistent from 11.5 volts up to 14.4 volts which most amps need the 14.4 volts to be at their rated rms output. I would buy another one!
Summary: How can you go wrong with JL - I mean it. I've been convenced now that they are making some of the best equipment for the $ out there. This AMP really impressed me and I've owned many other high end brands.
Conclusion: This product was exactly what I was looking for and was listed at a great price. This item was put into a Ford Expedition and the power from this AMP. fills my entire vehicle. Quality product from a quality seller.
