NOT HAPPY. All wiring trimmed/taped/routed to perfectly fit this amp ...
on October 8, 2017
purchased this amp, new jvc head unit, and 4 new kicker 6x8 speakers for my 2008 F150 truck. I'm very experienced with stereo installations. spent 4 hours running all the wiring. first ignition on resulted in popping and scratching noise from the LF speaker, then nothing from the LF, but all other channels working. checked LF speaker circuit, even though i knew i wired it perfectly, no problems found, except that now this brand new Kicker speaker ohms out at 2 ohms. It was 3.5 ohms out of the box. hooked the LF speaker back up, more popping/scratching, then nothing, then RF went down. Cycled the ign again, and front was completely dead, and rear channels producing some strange noise. NOT HAPPY. All wiring trimmed/taped/routed to perfectly fit this amp where it was located. Ended up having to disassemble everything i just put together, taking the amp out, and rewiring the speaker wiring for everything to run off the new head. I need to have hands free calling, and not going to wait for a replacement.
So, in summary:
1-ignored the many poor reviews describing similar issues.
2-wasted an entire saturday installing, then having to uninstall everything due to this defective product.
3-this defect ruined a brand new speaker, which i now have to deal with getting a replacement.
4-having to deal with getting a refund on this product.
5-forgot to mention that the blue planet audio logo on the front didn't light up either.
It's my opinion to stay away from this product.
