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.
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.
Summary: I had a Alpine head unit with some 6 1/2 polk speakers installed in my 200 GMC standard cab.It just was not loud enough for me so I purchased a small alpine power pak. It got loud but the highs just too high and not enough bass,old time rock music just didnt sound right So i went to Ative Radio and the guy suggested an amp and sub to bring out the bass. checked around and was interested in the 500watt Alpine and sub.
