Well i got her in the mail today, the dam thing is big an heavy lol, im using it in my budget build and it actually looks rather decent for the $190 i spent on it, thats brand new in the box by the way. Well i took it apart and took some pics for you guys so here they are.
The pics of the box and amp:
It came with a booklet, strapping cable, screws for mounts, allens, and the bass boost knob. Now for pics of the guts!!! (sorry for bad quality lol)
Now for the actual review part lol, ok well inside i know what you guys are thinking, it only has 2 of the goofy coil things instead of the usual 4, well i have one thing to say... THEY ARE BEEFY, those two have much more wire than alot of the "name brand" amps ive seen, and the wire is connected to the board in more areas than them too. It has a small fan in the middle of the 2 smaller coils, i guess thats good?It has the usual 4 large capacitors, and what looks to me as a decent amount of FETS. My main disapointment was the 4 guage terminals but hey its ok, the leads to the inside are actually very thick and stout instead of the usual skinny bar of metal, the 8 guage outputs for the speaker are a lil tiny for my liking but hey itll work. The RCAs are nice and the amp has every option I'LL ever need, from the inside this amp looks reliable and a solid performer which is an A+, From the outside this amp also looks GREAT, no crazy ugly designs just a simple good lookin amp with everything i could ask for. A good thing about this amp is that its externally fused i swapped my 120a for the 175a that came with it, this is a + cus im pretty sure i could go a lil higher in the fuse and gain some watts. This amp seems to sip on power, my lights arent dimming even on the hardest hits whis is also a +, I have KNU's 4 guage running to the amp along with there RCAs, I have Scoche 8 guage from amp to sub. One thing though is this amp is supposably has 18db bass boost but when i get the knob about 2/3 the way up its about as high as it goes and no change from 2/3's and higher, but thats fine. My subs wired to 4 ohms so thats what im running my sub is supposed to be rated at 600wrms and if so this amp is doing atleast 600wrms cus im over excurging it, bottoming out, and just noticably over powering it. Alot of people say these cheap amps are "dirty" power but to be honest this thing sounds VERY CLEAN, its loud and sounds very quality sounding, its full and rich sound produced throughout each note from highs to lows and is very crisp to the ear. Like ive said ive had this thing only at 4 ohms for now but ill def run it through a bunch of stuff for you guys. My only list of bad things is this amp has 4 guage terminals, and it runs pretty hot a lil hotter than i like but oh well, i played it hard for a good hour straight, right outta the box But i do plan on getting this thing benched and some numbers up for you guys also.
OVERALL: This was a GOOD buy, its powerful and performance on a budget, so $190 well spent, to be honest i was impressed with it lol i expected worse, maybe ill get a video up tomorrow, well see lol, AN YES I BOUGHT THIS KNOWING IT WASNT GOING TO DO CLOSE TO RATED SO DONT TRY TO GET ON HERE AND TELL ME HOW I WASTED MY MONEY, also any questions just ask, thanks.
