    Ultra Linear Amps?

    I was just checking through justamps.com and they've got ultralinear amps that put out 1200x1@1ohm...and are .5 ohm stereo stable. Anyone have any info as to how they sound/perform?

    1800W 1 Channel High Current Amplifier
    UL400HC

    1 x 500W RMS @ 4 Ohm Mono
    1 x 800W RMS @ 2 Ohm Mono
    1 x 1200W RMS @ 1 Ohm Mono
    1 x 1800W MAX @ 1 Ohm Mono
    Dimensions (W x H x L): 12.5x 2.6x 15.67

    All that for only $259
    And I'd be running at .8 ohms..so I'm guessing about 1300-1350 watts?

    You get what you pay for

    Dude...

    I really don't want to say anything bad about any brand or system, but you have to remember that you get what you pay for: I would be leary about any company that only tells you how much power their amp has. Maximum power, without any other specs, really doesn't tell you anything. You could hook a battery charger to a resistor and measure power (watts)...but would that sound good at all? Look at a more reputable manufacturer that will back up the power ratings with some specs: Power Output at what distortion? What is the damping factor of the amp? What is the frequency response?

    Not to name any names, and remembering that we all had to start somewhere: Look into an affordable Kicker, Rockford, Alpine...or other name brands. I have an old Kicker amp that is only a 30 watt per channel amp, but in the right system with the right subs, I was able to hit 135 DB. Not bad for 30 watts a channel and a pair of 15's.

    So...remember, you get what you pay for...

    I see Ultra Linear stuff at the local "Refurb" store all the time. I wouldn't spend my money on one.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Well, even if they are rated at 14.4 volts and are overrated, that's still a lot of power for the money. 1000 watts rns x 2 @ 1 ohm for less than $300. If I can get a deal on one I'll do a review and let you guys know how they are. They've got all the features I'd need.

    Re: Ultra Linear Amps?

    justamps.com

    looks like all their higher end stuff...for that site i mean...such as JBL can be had cheaper at places like ikesound.com


    www.ikesound.com i believe you can get the JBL 1200.1 for 275. thats a reliable 1200 W RMS for $15 more with free shipping. i think youd be better off looking into that....just my .02

    Well, I've already got one of those :-D, I'm looking for an amp that could be stable down to 1 ohm, or even half an ohm. These are two channel..so I could run each channel at 1.6 ohms (quad .8 ohm coils).

    the JBLs are stable down to 1 ohm
    they are rated at the same power as @ 2 ohm but are 1 ohm stable

    I know that..but it's a mono amp...I need a two channel if I'm gonna run at 1.6 ohms..I'd have to run at 3.2 ohms w/the JBL
