Summary: So far it is a great amp, At first there is a very subtle smell of like heated electronic, but it only last for like the first couple of hrs. After words it goes away(fully pushing two 15s and have not have the amp overheat) I selected this product for the price and the set up i was trying to achieve on my car, it was a perfect Fit.
Conclusion: I have had better but this amp hasnt failed me yet ....well on one or two ocasions but it was my fault... it does make some heat for sure but it has great power for the money i have it powering two Polk Audio db840DVC 8in subs and it does the job well.
Conclusion: This amp looks nice and works good with my speakers and is good for the price. The only downfall to me is that it has a safety switch built into it, so when it gets too hot, it kicks off. Which is good so you dont blow any fuses, but then the speakers won't work at all. They come back on after a few mins and then go right back off, either the fans in the amp are not working right or I just have bad luck.
Conclusion: GREAT AMP! It really rocks my car!! Couldn't be happier and the price is more than worth it! Great sound, durable, easy wiring and tuning to get that perfect sound. I love it, I would recomend to anyone looking for a great sounding amp for a great price!
Conclusion: I bought this amp to power my 12" Kicker subwoofer. The cooling fan is a great feature and even through hours of use it still remains cool with little to no heat being given off. As I continue to upgrade my car's audio system, Kenwood will continue to be my brand of choice.
