Summary: This amp provides smooth undistorted sound while running exceptionally cool. It delivers volume levels of higher rated amps of other brands. The smooth classy finish blends with the nice interior of the vehicle.
Summary: I am quite impressed with the quality and performance of JL Audio amps., especially for the price. This amp is paired with a JL Audio Stealthbox, and is a perfect match. It hits hard and stays cool/warm to the touch. Overall, I'm very happy.
Summary: Very happy with this amp. It matches perfectly to my Kicker TC10 compact sub. The bass is well matched and defined to my Pioneer DEH 8600BT head unit. I do not know if it is the AB class circuitry but this amp offers great fidelity. I had a JL class D AH1400 amp and it was a bit "boomy" at the low end. The JL 250 amp is perfect for those looking for crisp bass without needing huge seismic rattling power.
Pros: great defined fidelity. smooth bass without distorting "boomyness"
Summary: It has only been connected for less than a week, but as usual JL has done its job again. I have not noticed the amp get hot after extended play time. The sub it is connected to (20 yr old JL 12 W1-4in a bandpass box) and it hits hard enough for what I am using it for. It hits the 20hz notes clearly. On the other end Crutchfield has come through as well with excellent instructions great price and friendly staff that has been able to help me out when ever I get stuck..
Pros: Great directions regading installation. NIce power as mentioned above.
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.
Summary: Paired this with a single 8W1v2 4ohm sub. I had the sub on a factory amp for a few days before the JL Audio JX250/1 came in. On the factory amp the sub sounded slightly better than the original sub did. Once I hooked up the JX250/1 the sub came alive!! I really can't believe the sound quality from these products! Could not be happier with both products from JL!!
Pros: Sound quality, runs cool, looks great, doesn't miss a beat.
