    i cant tell you if it is any good or not but i was looking at it and i dunno it seemed to me that it's RMS power is pretty low,,.

    You can go to www.kenwoodusa.com and get specs for it.


    Good luck

    In my experience, I have seen the Kenwood amps be a great middle-of-the-road amp. They usually come with great extras for the price, but they sometimes feel a little shy on the power when you compare them to a Rockford or Kicker. If you are building a system that you will use at extreme levels during competiton, you should probably go with the big boys, but if you are building a system to enjoy for yourself, and the budget is a factor, the Kenwood is a good choice.

    can this amp run a 2 ohm load when its bridged? and will it take a 5v signal from pre-outs?

    as far as I am aware, Yes and Yes...With the 5 V preouts, you will need to ensure that the gains are turned down pretty far when you first fire it up...

    Its 2-ohm stereo stable but not 2-ohm mono. I'm buying for 200 at broadwaycomputer.com, but its probably refurbished. I don't need 2 ohm mono though, I'm running 8-ohm subs.
