Summary: I have been in the car audio scene for over 20years and have had experience with crappy as well as top of the line products. I was wanting to do an install in my Jeep Cherokee for about a year and decided to do a budget install but knew I wouldn't be happy with subpar equipment so I looked to some upper name brad components and decided to try an entry lever JLAudio amplifier. All I can say is that for the low cost it is an incredible amplifier!
Conclusion: I have this amp hooked up to a Hertz Hi Energy component set in the front (120 watts rms each woofer+tweeter), and JL Audio C2 6 inch coaxials in the back (60 watts rms each speaker). The sound quality: is good... a lot cleaner than lesser brand amps i have tried, but not amazing. The heat: this amp will get surprisingly and unusually VERY hot! The size: is very big, but I prefer for people to look at it and think it has more power.
Conclusion: First off, a great looking amp. Next, kinda long, but fine if you have the room. Now, it seems to run a little warm, but thats fine considering its yet to overheat on me, and i dont see it doing so. The tuning is basic, which is convenient. All the terminals are great, very deep which gives it a clean look. Cant go wrong, puts out good power. For the price, ive never had better.
Conclusion: Really surprised at the amount of power coming out of this little amp. 2010 F150 4 door speakers. I have the JL audio 5x7 speakers, very nice and with this amp it has the best sound! it has very good controls for sound quiality and is light enough I could mount very easy. It is sitting in a very small area and never over heats or even gets hot! It is great. Much more affordable then the JL audio HD amps as well.
