This amp is the revised version of the 8104D. If you read those reviews, you will see mixed reviews... on the good.. they praise the power and sound quality... on the bad they complain about overheating issues. I just installed this amp today... cant tell you extensive reasearch type info but I have a JL 500/1 to compare to. This amp says 500 watts just like my JL but for the stereo noobs out there... these are NOT in the same class... JL is higher end audiophile quality while this kenwood was made for budget-minded people who still want quality. This amp pushed my JL 12w6v2 just fine but I had a hard time getting the gain just right... I was getting distortion at higher volumes but it may have been due to my MP3 player being up too high. This amp did not make my car lights dim like the JL does and I dont have a capacitor either.
I rode around for about 4 hours bumping the system with the JL sub in for about 2 hrs and it never cut out or seemed to overheat at all. The amp is fairly simple to set up... took me 2 hrs from start to finish and I had to run all the wiring in my GFs car.
Overall great quality and for the price... I dont know if there are others that can compare... Highly recommended for someone on a budget(like most of us these days) who still wants to get a little more out of their system without breaking the bank.

I have two 10" Kicker C10's and this is more than enough power. My system is louder than two of my friends who have two 12's. Also it never gets hot.

I have dealt with several amps and i gotta say that this is one of the better ones. If you are not planning on upgrading your alternator, this amp will have plenty of power, with 500 RMS at 2 ohm stable this is great. It will not damage you power system and will not kill your battery. I have it powering two Infinity 10" 250 RMS dual 2 ohm subs and it shakes the car like crazy. I actually have to turn the amp to about 50-60% volume in order to be comfortable.

This amp works well. We installed it with a pair of 12" subs, added a capacitor, and it does what it is advertised to do. It hits hard, sounds good and hopefully will prove to be reliable. We've only had it installed for two weeks now. It wasn't to difficult to install and wire up. If you are viewing the picture on this Amazon site, the two mounting holes that you can see are a little difficult to work with if you are mounting in a tight place. They are recessed so deep that you can't get your fingers in there to get your screw through the hole and start them in to your mounting surface. The only other problem I had was when I installed the capacitor, I had to put two power wires on the lug to the amp, which is not designed for that. It was a little difficult to get the screw to tighten up. If by chance you strip out the screw, the hole goes all the way through, so you can get your own small bolt, nut and washers, and replace the screw with that. You can actually tighten it better that way. Once I get it all mounted and wired, it fired right up and with a few adjustments to the low pass filter and input sensitivity, it was thumping! We noticed it does run pretty warm so we're considering putting a fan on it because the trunk has limited air flow. If you are looking for a good mono amp to drive a set of subs, this is a good buy.

This amp does what it says and is very nice looking. I've had it for two months and a half. There hasn't been any problems with it so far. Also it hasn't turned off because of overheating, and I live in Arizona. It is well vented though, I currently have it behind my seat in a 2000 Mustang. This was a great upgrade from a lame Boss amp. I would recommend it to a friend if he had a subwoofer within the RMS wattage range of the amp.

UPDATE 3/12/2014
Just updating so you know it hasn't broke or anything. It's a sturdy little amp with good power.
This amp has still continued making my subs kick, haven't had any issues with heat or anything else. If you're looking for something decent that's not too expensive definitely get this amp, works great.

UPDATE 4/1/2015
Another update for any curios minds out there, this amp is still working great. There are no issues with overheating, random turn offs or anything of the sort. I have this sitting just behind the back window of a mustang so it does sit in the sun during the summer when I am at work for around six hours. Something to praise about is that on my 9AM-3PM shift in the summer this amp won't fuss about the heat. As soon as i get in my car and can start playing my music with no interruptions and it is hot to the touch (again because of its position in direct sunlight). Yes I know i may asking for trouble having it like this, but it just goes to show you how durable this amp is. This makes it two years that I have had this amp and I still love it. Great Product!
