Summary: I bought two of these for each 12W6 I had and got rid of my Rockford punch amp. I was unsure how this amp was going to be, but after having it for months now, I can tell you it puts a pound on speakers! This amp nevers get hot or shuts down no matter how hard I play them. JL is quality and it's proven in these amps. This is a class d amp which is why it's a little higher than the usual ab class amps.
Summary: This amp is awesome! pushes my JL W6 12" woofer with ease. I had the older model of this amp and pushed my W6 perfectly so when that amp went out I didnt even consider anything other than JL Slash v2 amp. Strongly recommend this amp id you have a JL W6.
Summary: I hooked this amp up with a brand new 13w3v3. I have to tell you I was shocked at how much sound I got from just ONE sub. I have two 12w6v2's in my truck, and I have to say that the 13w3v3 is not far behind. It has more boom bass than the 12's, but it has a ported enclosure. I am very pleased with this amp because it was a perfect fit for the install. The owner didn't want a whole lot of bass, but got more than the bargained for.
Conclusion: I have this amp hooked up in my Silverado to a 10 inch kicker L7 dual 4 ohm in a sealed box wired down to 2 ohms final load, and once you've set the gain it is waaaay louder than expected!!! I got the class A/B in Janurary and just threw in my truck and thought it was pretty loud and two months later my friend set my gain and it started to shake the dashboard!!!
Power and Dependability!! JL designed and built this amp RIGHT!!!

Summary: I recently purchased a JL Audio 500/1 Amp to mate up with my JL 10 W7. I am very impressed with the output power as well as the versatility. One nice option is it's signal sensing turn on option as well as the standard 12V switched turn on. Although the 12V is recommended, I use the signal sensing turn on due to my use of a OEM head unit and one less wire to run. One draw back to the signal sensing turn on is that there is quite a delay.
