    Icon7 Boss 4K

    https://www.amazon.com/BOSS-Audio-AR.../dp/B004RS9UTI
    I know this **** that this brand gets but what about this amp
    Yes it it boss I understand but I dont really need a competition level amp
    I have 2 Skar Audio ix-12 subwoofers with a rp350 1d
    Im just not sure that the Skar amp will provide enough power for my subs

    If there you have any suggestions on this amp or what amps to get please comment
    Im just starting out so as a 16 year old I dont have to much money to throw into it but 180 would be my max price

    Re: Boss 4K

    Don't think the boss is the amp you want.
    A member here does test on amps and he might have done this one I think. (Didn't do so hot)
    Check out Ryan Blankenship I think is his name.

    He also sales amps he test.

    Also scar makes an rp1500 that last I looked does rated power and is below $180

    Re: Boss 4K

    Jump up to 200-230 range and you have 2k scar, audio pipe, cab 1600, ppi black ice 7k and other amps that do power for cheap.
    Some are power hungry tho.

    Think soundqubed just came out with a budget line of amp that are priced pretty low also.
    I'm sure others will chime in.

    So just don't jump on the boss bandwagon right off the bat, look around at other amps 1st.

    Re: Boss 4K

    You could also look at the Soundqubed S1-1250 that's around 179. And the Audiopipe APCL-1800 is also around 180. Skar is not bad and you can do that... Heck I have a Skar RP2000.1d that I need to film for a Dyno vid I'm doing and you can have that for 180...

    I didn't do the Armor 4k.. BigDWiz did that one.. I did the Phantom 5000 which did ok wattage wise for the money, but it was built like poop.

    1000 boss watts = 100 actual watts.

    Re: Boss 4K

    If you can't afford a decent amp now, you definitely can't afford to buy a POS that will perform poorly and fail prematurely. Pay now or pay later. Buy a reputable brand in a size you can afford and you can rest easy knowing it will still be functioning and worth something when/if you want to upgrade down the line.

    Think about it this way, if they are going to lie to you that their 500W amp will do 4000W what do you suppose that company thinks of you, it's customer? Do you think they care about giving you a good product? Would you expect decent customer service? Please do NOT support any brand that lies about their products.

    Re: Boss 4K

    I just looked up your Subs... They are 250W Rms, and since you have a pair of dual 2 ohm sub, I would wire in a series and get a 2 ohm stable amp. I think the JBL GTX500 would likely be perfect for you as Gramps mentioned. You can get one on Crutchfield for $99 Shipped.

    If you want to spend a little less I have a brand new MTX RT500D here as well for $80.
