Does the job without ripping my wallet
on July 31, 2011
Purchased the amp last week for 44 bucks with free shipping and arrived on the given arrival date as what amazon stated. Installed it yesterday to my technics 4 speaker subwoofer lying around, 2 speakers where both wired in parallel so in all both speakers in right and left input has 8 ohms and total of 16 ohms for all 4 speakers each speakers is rated at 300 watts. I thought this would be an overkill for my amp, upon completing all hookups I fired it up boy it still sounds good played several hours of music amp still stayed cool to touch despite my speaker setup. If you're looking for a decent but cheap amp to fill some low end bass that your current setup lacks then is right for you but if you are looking for some pounding and rattling bass you might spend more on high end amp.
Have the unit for almost 5 months now without any neg issues. Just a sort of advice when installing this unit is don't cheap on the connection. Every connection you do must be soldered with the amp kit you're using. Solder with the wire connectors from the battery to its fuse holder, ground wire and towards the amp itself. Tighten the connections properly and remember to have some good grounding point by sanding into bare metal where you tap your ground wire(grounding wire must not be more than 2 feet length), it saves some headache in the future we're talking high current flow here so any loose and on and off contacts can cause short circuits it can either damage your amp or some electronic components in your car. Lastly the casing of this amp has some hole or perforation at the bottom which helps dissipates heat so don't block it leave a little clearance there by putting some washers/small bolts or any alternative materials you have in hand for elevation so that when you screw the amp to the surface it will not just lay flat obstructing those openings which helps in keeping the amp cool.
