Cleeve from Auckland, New Zealand, Sonic Electronix

Conclusion: This is the first amp I've felt the need to review. It has served me so well in many different applications and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. I've run a 12" Rockford P3 600watt RMS at 4ohms bridged an Older P3 500 watts RMS bridged at 2ohms and it powered them both perfectly and sounded good doing it. I'm currently running it in stereo mode at 1ohm per channel with 200 watts RMS of speaker wattage per side with the gain set very low and its never missed a beat.
Conclusion: I stepped up to the Power 400 from running a Prime series and all I can say is WOW! I don't know what RF does differently with these, but the difference is worth the coin. Used in conjunction with the PEQ remote you can have a little pop or a huge boom on demand. Even when pushing my 2 subs for about an hour, there is no sign of excessive heat.
Conclusion: This amp pumps out the power, and then some. I have it on my front mids and highs... and its sends more power to them than they ever will need. Exactly what I would expect from a Rockford Product.
Conclusion: I bought this amp to replace a JL. This thing is amazing. The gain is a very nice addition and works like a charm. Tunes very easily and delivers crisp sound to my Boston Acoustics component 6.5s. I have it placed between a bench and a sub box (very little air circulation) and this thing stays cool even on road trips. Very good buy.
