Summary: I replaced my old SA-2 amp with the Boston Acoustics SA1. Set-up was easy. I'm driving two passive 10 inch woofers and it works great. The build quality is solid. The sound it produces is superior to the old SA-2. It delivers great punch while maintaining pure crisp bass.
Pros: Produces powerful clear bass without any muddy affects.

Summary: About 5 years ago after Boston Acoustics stopped making their outdoor bass speaker I bought it to use in a home I thought I was buying. Unfortunately the economy decided otherwise and I never purchased the SA1 amplifier.
Pros: I decided to integrate the SA1 with the woofer in my home theater system. 1. Easy hookup using a trigger and a second bass output from my existing receiver and a Reference Furman. 2. No hum and powerful bass. 3. Integrated into an all Martin-Logan speaker system beautifully as a side woofer.
Summary: This subwoofer amplifier and its twin from Snell are very good, reliable products. This is my second and powers an in-wall Snell subwoofer used with a Snell IW-K7 in-wall array. The Snell satellites are driven by a Pioneer SC63 receiver. The room is approximately 2200 cubic feet.
Pros: It just plain works without difficulty
Cons: In my opnion, it would be nice to have both adjustable low pass and high pass filters for some of the more challenging passive subwoofers
Summary: I purchased this amp to drive a pair of custom built subs; not Boston Acoustics. I picked up a "Like New" model, it was. Set up could not be easier with the exception that I had to provide RCA pugs to connect to my Yamaha integrated amp. Runs like a champ; clean looks and clean sound. Great value.
