    BOSS amps owners?

    Im looking at the BOSS RIOT 3000D for a pair of RE HC12's. I was just wondering who has or had a BOSS amp and how well do they perform?

    Boss *****....Period. That 3000 watt amp might be lucky to do 1/4 of that really. The build quality on amps like that are really bad also, if you got more than 1 good months use out of it I would be surprised.

    Re: BOSS amps owners?

    I have not used that amp, but I have had a couple boss products. Only one was halfway OK. You get what you pay for with them, and just about everything they make is cheap. I had an 800 watt boss amp, that actually was only putting out around 150wrm bridged. I swapped it out for a fosgate 150s and it hit much harder than the boss.
    Why dont you just buy a good amp off of ebay?
    Good luck

    Re: BOSS amps owners?

    To the Boss owner who claims good things... I wish I could bring my GXA1000D (paid 130 shipped for it) or my PPI PC2600 (100 total) and hook it up. Could you guys imagine the look on that kids face when he hears what real RMS power (not to mention MUCH cleaner power) does for you. It'd be like night and day. Honestly Boss is totally overated and basically not worth the money. If you look around for some good deals you can get sooooo much more. Seriously, find a friend with a good amp (any brand name OTHER THAN Pyle, Boss, Legacy, misc junk) and ask them to hook your subs to it. You'll be amazed how much better they will sound and how much cleaner the bass will be. Using those underrated Boss amps you are just going to cause damage to your subs from underpowering and distortion. Then when some one asks you why you had to buy new subs you can tell them its because you saved a few bucks on your amp... get the picture? Its just not worth kidding yourself.
