    Quality of jbl amplifiers

    I am just strictly asking this question for informational purposes only. How would you rate the quality, build design and sound of JBL amplifiers? Obviously they have been around a long time but what are your thoughts?

    Thanks

    Re: Quality of jbl amplifiers

    Good stuff! I've had a few of their GTO series amps, the 1200.1 and 75.4. I have also owned a few infinity amps (Both Harman kardon products). Good solid power for the right price. I think build quality excellent on the amps. Very beefy.

    Used the 1200.1 Very solid amp for the money. Seen a few others in action, all seem reasonably well built and do what they claim.

    Any that say "crown" on them are an auto-win.

    My A6000gti is one of the cleanest amps I've heard. I've also owned a few other of their crown amps. All sound amazing.

    In my experience, the GTO's are very nice amps. I wouldn't mind running them.

    JBL's Tiny amps

    JBL's stylish MS Series "Tiny" amps measure only 7" by 8" so you can tuck one into virtually any hiding place that has adequate ventilation. Or you can mount one in a prominent spot to show off the bright digital display with its tone and gain settings. These unique amps come with a setup CD and include built-in indicators that help you set the input level perfectly. They also feature preamp and speaker-level inputs so you can hook them up to almost any system.

    Digital signal processing

    The MS-A1004 sends 100 watts RMS to each of your front and rear speakers for clear, powerful reproduction of your music. You can also switch the MS-A1004 into 2-channel mode to drive a couple of subs with 200 watts RMS each, and you can run the amp safely with 2-ohm subs in bridged mode. Digital processing gives you a wide selection of crossover points and a choice of three filter slopes to get just the right tone from your system.
    Sophisticated circuitry

    An optional remote bass controller does much more than just turn this amp up and down. This wireless controller works with multiple MS Series amps at the same time, coordinating the low frequencies of all the amps to blend smoothly so you don't get a bunch of mud when you boost the bass. A signal-sensing turn-on circuit eliminates the need for a separate lead from your receiver, and a special input mode allows this amp to work even when there's a factory amplifier in your car's system.
    Details:

    • 4-channel car amplifier
    • 100 watts RMS x 4 (2 to 4 ohms)
    • 200 watts RMS x 2 (2 to 4 ohms)
    • CEA-2006 compliant
    • selectable high- and low-pass filters (20-20K Hz; 6, 12, or 24 dB/octave)
    • optional wireless remote bass controller (automatically pairs with multiple JBL MS Series amps)
    • Class-D amplifier design
    • digital signal processing settings stored in non-volatile memory, no settings lost if power is disconnected
    • input mixer distributes signal without need for Y-cables
    • speaker-level inputs (RCA adapters included)
    • "Hi2" input setting provides factory system amps with output loads, eliminating "speaker disconnected" error messages
    • CD for system setup included
    • preamp inputs and outputs
    • output level controls
    • fuse rating: 30A x 2
    • 8-gauge power and ground leads and an 60-amp fuse recommended wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
    • 7-1/4"W x 2-13/16"H x 8-13/16"D
    • warranty: 1 year

    I'm pretty sure we will be seeing these bad boys in the lanes real soon......SQ lanes that is...I think they have some of the MS-8 features in them as well, like the auto gain matching
