Summary: This amp is underated at 500 watts it can handle 650 easily, it's a solid build and out performs the competition. Its the way to go with amps and JL is like the Mercedes in amps, the brand is well respected if you put in the money for it. Don't be cheap when it comes to car sound systems.
Summary: Theses amps are great, i bought a 1000 watt and 500 watt same level,the seller though not so much. They rip off the serial #! These guys aren't allowed to sell these products so if the amp ever goes bad andif u try tohave it sent in,not only is there no warranty, u have to pay jl to print you a new...
Summary: Awesome amp...great price, HOWEVER, most people that are not an authorized JL Audio dealer will remove all serial numbers on the product before they ship it to you...don't know if that's a big deal, but i bought a 13tw5 JL sub and this 500/1 amp from different vendors and they both arrived in...
Summary: DO NOT ORDER FROM AUDIO KRAZE! This amp began to smoke and pop after 2 weeks of mediocre use. Not max volume, no max gain, nothing that would hurt it. Audio Kraze decided that their 60 day policy or 1 year warranty did not apply to me since i bought it on amazon.
Summary: this is the second time i have bought this amp, i had a memphis 15 in a 93 civic and my car could barely handle it. my roof would vibrate like crazy. of course the 15' memphis gave out after of about 3hrs of highway driving. the amp wasnt even hot yet.
Summary: Great Amp- tons of user controls: adjustable LFE and cutoff frequency with 12 or 24 dB/octave dropoff rate. Also really like the high pass filter that can knock of the sub-bass frequencies in the range of 10-25 Hz. Great, solid amp from a solid seller.
Summary: I bought this amp and had it paired with the JL 12w6v2. I carefully considered this sub/amp combo since it was going to be a first system that I put into my car. This combination maybe a little too much for my 4 door sedan, but it was well worth the money spent.
