Summary: The auxillary port has started to wear down after several months of usage and now the aux cable has to be pulled downward for the amp to power the left speaker. I've tried multiple quality auxillary cables so I know it is not the cable.
Summary: I patiently waited until summer in Pheonix was over (November) before leaving my review. This little amp made it through the summer and it was outside the entire time with a little cover. Considering the cost this works very nicely to drive a couple outdoor speakers - klipsch 650s. It's loud enough for my neighborhood and would certainly get a call to police if it was on late at night.
Summary: This thing is smaller than I expected, but heavy, so I expected good things. I plugged it in, and turned it on and was quickly disappointed. First of all, the usb jack on the front is not only useless, but It could potentially ruin your usb drive. I plugged a few of mine in to test, and all of them met with a pop and crackle with inserted.
Summary: I had bought this amp to power the subs in my towers. I had it hooked up for approximately 15 minutes before it died. I read the other reviews which warned of the bad quality, but I decided to take a chance. I won't ignore amazon reviewers again. Don't waste your time or money!
Summary: ...but then the volume knob started getting wacky. Sometimes the sound comes out of only one channel unless I crank the volume way up. Sometimes it only plays at a very loud volume, even when the knob is at its lowest setting. Oh, well, I guess you get what you pay for.
Summary: Who even knows how they found that wattage rating for starters. Generates enough heat to cook a few eggs on, leading to its predictable demise. I had it in my garage powering a couple of polk outdoor speakers, I think I got about 3 months out of it at moderate levels before it started smoking. Then again, look where it's made.
