    WAAAAY better than what they have these days a board with a single capsitor and rest is empty its pathetic in every way makes Pyle look like gold.

    But I don't see how it's a sleeper amp? With 75 amps fuse guessing it won't do anything more than that 1000 if that? Nice amp decent price for the wattage glws

    It's called a sales pitch...I sa..I say a sales pitch, boy.




    I hear you, though. I guess I just meant sleeper as in, people wouldn't normally expect this kind of performance from this particular xplod line. In fact, if you peer inside the others from this exact line they look very different and very unimpressive.

    RMS power at 1 ohms: 1000 watts x 1(20-300Hz, at 1.2% THD)

    that 1.2% though

    Completely negligible, especially for a subwoofer. In that frequency range, the ear brain system cannot detect disortion less than about 10-12%. Maybe about 5-6% if it's a pure tone.

    I think a lot of you confuse max output clipping distortion with THD created by crossover distortion between transistors. Two very different things.

    Crossover distortion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
