Conclusion: I usually don't buy Sony products specially amps, but i got this amp to power a couple kicker comps and this thing was surprisingly not bad. it's cea certified so you know the power rating isn't Sony rated, it is what its actually advertised. The settings could have been easier to get to though, i like how kicker did their knob controls on the top for easy access. and there is no remote bass knob control, which is a lot more useful than one would think.
Conclusion: i have this hooked up to two sony 12's wired at 2 ohms and this set up bangs first hour i installed it my rear view mirror un screwed itself and fell off. Don't let Sony haters fool you, this thing eats! pros: loud, clear, hits the lows cons: blue led light doesnt match my orange leds through out my car but il change it.
Conclusion: i believe that is very well priced amp, it excellent it don't get too hot like other amps, also it CEA compliant so you know for sure that you are going to get the right RMS needed, overall this Sony amp is the best i been doing audio for a long time and i know when i see a good amp and this is the one.
Conclusion: I have a 2006 impala SS. I bought this amp to match up with the sony 12" subs I got from the "nation's super center" and they match up perfect! no clipping or disortion. i have them installed in a ported box with the labyrinth venting design. Sounds goood! Doesn't get hot at all. i did it via loc tagged at the factory bose amp and with the out rca's, i ran two sets of clarion tweets on a jensen power 400 2 channel amp.

Conclusion: This amp is amazing strong and powerful, i've had a mono rockfordfosgate amp before that had higher rms ratings but didn't come close to the actual power this has. It's bass is super clean not muddy at all. It's strong and you have the option to make the bass more loose or tight. The amp i have running on full every day and is definitely a keeper ever since last year i had this amp in runs just amazingly never heats up always runs really cool even in hot summer days it...
