    Lightning Audio Amp - eh?

    Hey guys, looking for opinions on Lightning Audio amps, this one specifically
    http://www.woofersetc.com/showitem.taf?item_id=2688


    it puts out what I need, 600 watts into 4 ohms and it's a class d amp.

    What do you guys think taking quality/price into consideration!
    Thanks in advance!



    Peace,

    MeteorShower

    You could buy a JBL 1200.1 for less than that, then you would know you were getting a quality product and more power too.

    I just recently bought and recieved my new Lightining audio amp, and it kicks butt. its a strike S4.300 2x30 front channels, and 2x90 rear channels. Fliped the channels so the rear is running the fronts and the front is running the rears(uh yeah ) Anyways I couldent be happier with the amp, I only dropped 85 on it, so to me it was a great investment.

    anytime you go with a big amp like that (running low impedence as well) cooling is not a bad idea........

    the fact that it is a class d doesnt have anything to do with how much heat it produces that is just the freq response and eff. plus most high quality amps have fans

    the fan is just a maketing gimik

    that way the dont have to supply you with one from the factory. they can make more money selling them separatly. they do need them! but proly the comp can blame you for not putting the fan on, on not let you have the waranty or somthing. (im not sure about that) but what i do know, is that fan dosnt cost the comp more thana doller to make. and if they could get away with seeling them for $30 extra, then they r going to do what makes money. LOL

    WHY dont they make 1000watt amps with a built in 1 farad cap????
