Review of Amplifier: Boston GT-2125
So as most of you who frequent Sonic Electronix know, the Boston Acoustics GT-2125 is being sold at fire sale prices. Hell, the whole Boston lineup is if you happen to go onto their website and look into the refurbished items. So I took this opportunity to go down the whole five miles it takes to SE HQ and pick mine up today. Yes, I'm that guy who's dumb enough to save an extra 5 bucks on a refurb, but there's a method to my madness. I want you guys to have the new stock because I could care less if my amp doesn't come with the manual or all the pack-ins or if it happens to have a couple scuffs on the mounting plate. Anywho, my point is you can buy the amp new from SE for 110 or you can be like me and buy a refurb (one left at the time of this review if that 5 bucks ends up a dealmaker).
BUT WAIT, you're still probably asking, IT'S A FIVE DOLLAR DIFFERENCE! ZOMG WHY DIDN'T YOU BUY IT NEW?!!?! Because somewhere in the back of my head, I have a feeling this refurb has been touched by Boston more recently than the new stock. I could be wrong, but whatever. Let's not forget what these things went for when they were brand new.
Now for the obligatory first picture and specs!
***Note. This is a Class A/B amp. It's mentioned later in the thread, but I'll add it here***
So as you can see it's tiny, but it's a workhorse. At just over a foot long at 2-ohm stable bridged at 600W, you can see why I tend to recommend this for a value sub stage amp. It'll power my ID10 quite nicely (and maybe even an IA Flatlyne further down the road). Even running in a 2-channel configuration, 125W should be more than enough for the average user.
The plan, as it stands, is to power the ID10 with this BA and the JBL MS comps on the Kenwood KAC-923 I received this weekend (courtesy of @mr b ; ). I will post updates as they come along since I still have to point out some key things on this amp, but the toolbag is unfortunately in my car and I am le tired so I won't be showing any additional pics tonight.
Stay tuned, folks.
