Conclusion: I bought this amp when i upgraded from 2 12's to 4'12s. I had the kenwood 1800w 9105d amp before and it cut off daily even in winter time in Colorado. So i though id try the kicker. The two amps literally are side by side in the car and with the 30 day return policy i figured let the best amp win.
Conclusion: I got this amp to replace an Audiopipe apsm1300, i had it at 2ohm for 600wrms. My sub is an mb quart pwe354 @2ohms, this sub is 800wrms, so i wanted to give it atleast 1000wrms. I got the kicker, when i first hooked it up it did not even move the sub. I was UPSET! I had to jack the gain to 10 out of 11 to even hear the sub, i knew some subs have a break-in period but not amps...
Conclusion: Had this amp for a bit and one day out of no where it went to protect. Couple days later it came back on but when the bass would hit hard it would shut off again. Voltage was good and everything but it would still shutdown.
Conclusion: I ordered my dx1000.1 from Sonic about 6 months ago. They by far have had the best price. I got it in a verry timely manner as always. The amp was actuallly certified at over 100w more than they claim. It's a great amp with a verry small footprint. I have it hooked to 2 12" cvt's at 2 ohms and it sounds great. Thanks Sonic. BTW I am a real person. Buy with confidence!
Conclusion: EVERYBODY needs one!!!!! its so small for a 1000 rms and it pounds my type x so hard the low's are crazy im gona get another ASAP for my very last setup 1 orion HCCA 12 dual 2 ohms with 2 kicker DX1000.1

Conclusion: I was floating between 0.8 and 1.3 ohms and I didn't know that this amp isn't stable at anything below 2 ohms, it kept cutting out at medium volume, and I couldn't figure out why until I tested and then it made sense.
Conclusion: I like this amp alot, great for the size and price is worth it. I have had this amp for around a month or a bit more not sure.. I have since changed head units since my last post. I HAD to post again correcting and explaining a few things.. First, This amp was in my van under metal shelves (10-12" clearance) all day (24/7 Locksmith) around (6-8hrs daily) over 100mi a day. with no A/C.
