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.
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.
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!
*Feb 24th 2013 Update* Installed the Kenwood Bluetooth stereo, bluetooth so-so, love the USB input on the front!!! Now RCA inputs connect the subwoofer output to the Kenwood amp, Never did install the raptor capacitor. 3 weeks ago I turned the stereos bass boost on and cranked the volume, 10 minutes later I noticed the bass was lacking. Blew the MTX 12 voice coil I believe. NEWAYS.... A Kicker S10L5 SoloBaric 10inch 600RMS 900MAX sub in an enclosed box came my way cheap and after connecting its 2 ohm dual voice coils to run 4ohm I have it connected and will be fine tuning it over next couple days. Currently it's thumping the 10" solobaric beyond what the MTX 12" could do, and some! Input Level is 0, filter around 100, bass boost barely up, IPF filter turned on. I'm thinking I can go a good bit farther since 4ohm is running 300watt RMS.
A sub is designed to run with a minimum RMS wattage rating (it will say something 350w RMS and 1200w max). Why the big difference between the two, that's because you are supposed to have an amp that pushes more than the RMS rating of your sub. I chose this amp because my sub is 350w RMS and the amp is 500w RMS. Your amp will run cooler and longer if it pushes more than your sub's RMS rating. Also, you can do damage to a sub if it is under powered.
Also, a Class D amp is designed for subs. It will run cooler than normal amps. If you need to put this amp in an enclosed space, behind carpet, or other place that is not vented, you NEED a class D.
Don't forget the ohm ratings. Every speaker has resistance, because it fights against the motion of sound. You want to match your speakers to the ohm ratings on the amp. If you have speakers with higher ohm ratings (which also change by how you wire up your speakers if there are multiples or if they are dual voice coils), your amp will not produce as much wattage as what it's rated at. Match things up as best you can for optimum sound and power!!
This amp looks sharp and hits hard. I couldn't be happier with it.
