Conclusion: I have this amp pushing 2, 10" sony shallow mounts @ 2 ohms, each sub in it's own .43 cu. ft. ported box tuned at 40hz. And man those Sony's POUND!!! Lots of power in such a small package. A must buy if your tight on space. Fits ANYWHERE!!!
Conclusion: I have a pair of these amplifiers powering 4 Sony 10's and the sound is awesome. I powered them for 4 days in a row for about 12 hours a day at the Dallas Auto Show and they performed flawlessly! If you are looking for an awesome amplifier at a great price for your subwoofers... get these asap!
Conclusion: Small amp that can put out lots of power with ease. Bought this because I have the 4 channel version and was satisfied with that one also. Driving two 8 inch kickers in a compact space and i am more than satisfied with the result.
Conclusion: Sony is still looked down upon a lot of times, but this product should not be overlooked. First of all this thing does 500 RMS WATTS! @ 2ohm load And it is so compact it can fit anywhere. It is probably the smallest with this type of power output. It powers my 12" FUBAR sub just fine. Has rca pass through to hook up the matching Sony XM-4S 4channel amp for your speakers to be powered, as that does not has a pass through..
Summary: The thing I love most about Sony XM-1S amp is that it's extremely small and light weight but still packs alot of punch. This anp is adequately pushing my two Rockford Rostgate 12's with clean, crisp sound. I bought this amp mainly because the small size. I'm able to stow away under the passenger seat of my pickup. I have yet to find anything I dislike about this amp.
Conclusion: This amp is lots of power in a small package, with 2 30 amp fuses it certainly delivers. Like the xm-4s it looks great with the shiny chrome top but can also be removed to have the stealth black look. I was able to fit these amps in places no other amp could go, such as in between body panels, not much would fit in there. This is some great bang for the buck and almost impossibly small.
