Very surprised for its size

  • Summary: I have to be honest, I am a solid novice when it comes down to high quality audio - but I am learning very quick. Recently starting playing HD music files and deleted all my MP3's. I have two Orion HCCA 10" Dual 2 Ohm subwoofers that are now powered by this little amp. This is amp is about a third of the size of the original amp I had installed and this JL amp is just as, if not a little more, powerful than the previous amp (not a JL).
  • Pros: Runs cool, easy to tune, very small and easy to install almost anyway. Probably could have put this in my glove box
  • Cons: Honestly it's hard to think of a negative yet, I have owned this amp about 6 months and still haven't had an issue.

Great amp

JR, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Great purchase but had a problem with the amp (red light). It happens and Crutchfield was great. I called with the issue was not on placed hold and the technical adviser was professional and thorough. Got a replacement in four days. It is pushing my JL Audio Stealthbox (10 inch). Plenty of power with no clipping (provided you have properly tuned the intensity as per JL Audio instructions).
  • Pros: Small, compact, clean power
  • Cons: none

Exactly what you expect fromJL

  • Summary: Bought this amp to pair with a JL cp108lg-w3v3. I was considering the Alpine 500/1 but decided that the additional features and JL quality were enough to justify the extra cost. Mounting is a breeze and the power output is more than enough to power my sub. I am running through the stock stereo in my '13 Toyota tundra so the sound quality isn't exactly what you would get with preamps and a real EQ but the amp pushes the sub great.
  • Pros: More features, build quality, doesn't over heat.
  • Cons: Full retail prices

JL Audio JX500 1D WOW

9417200710, Crutchfield
8 September 2013
  • Summary: I have this amp pushing 2 Alpine SWE 10S4 subs in the trunk of a new Camaro with the stock radio head receiver, and this small amp has big power and a great deep clean sound. I had other comparable amps in the car as far as power output and this amp blows them away. I am using a Audio control line converter because I am using the stock receiver and this amp sounds great with power to spare, and if you like it loud this amp will provide it while keeping the bass clean.
  • Pros: Small size for vehicles with low space
  • Cons: none

  • Summary: This amp goes above and beyond. It easily powers my 15" Kicker L7. Definitely produces it's rated power and then some. Very reliable. Clean sound and very efficient. JL takes the win. Very nice product.

Great Littie Amp!

L. Harris, Crutchfield
12 April 2013
  • Summary: To save space in my '12 Mini Cooper Countryman, I had this amp installed with a remote knob (JL Audio RBC-1) and it sounds great! For now I have it connected to a Kenwood KFC-W3013PS 12" Sub, I plan on replacing the 12" with the JL Audio CP108LG-W3v3 which should will fit nicely under the fold flat floor. The current setup is LOUD!! After my poor ears had had enough, turned down the gain to about 1/4 and it is still impressive.
  • Pros: Small Size, Powerful
