    No prob man glad to help. I can't wait to get my 2500.1d it's gonna kick my SA15"s in the rear .

    Glad you learned something. There are alot of people who are scared to death of these amps cause they don't know if there getting a good one or bad one an want to blame bill for the faults which was not the case.

    I mean he gave every penny he had to dat an they screwed him in the end an left him with nothing basically but to the ones who know the whole story still stick behind these amps because of what they can do.

    An I see you have a proto as well I hope you like it as much as the rest of us it's a power house all in it's own an if it happens to give you the short stick it would be well worth to get it fixed but when you get it running let us know how it goes .

    Depends on what you blow...

    I liked the Proto I had... Here are some shots so you can see the difference, it is very easy to tell a Proto from a Production... The Protos have no writing, are all black, have plastic knobs, plastic mounting feet, and the heat sink has a "fin" like design on top... The Productions are engraved/have writing on the sides, metal knobs, metal mounting feet, and have a "Smooth" heat sink on top with bare metal stripe... Thats just the differences in looks on the out side obviously...

    Proto-




    Production-

Its blamed on shotty parts from the buildhouse, yet its a completerly different amp all together. I don't own one and probably never will, but curiousity gets the best of me on this.

    Ya like he said just get a proto there worth the money. Mine is a non proto but I'm alright with it getting repaired.

    That was my point. Lol The ex-owner unloaded like 30 on CACO... and theres several out there already. So lets just say AT LEAST 50 out there floating around. (I'd guess a LOT more.) I misunderstood his post, he didnt have a pallet of the protos, but he did have 25-30 of them that he got from the buildhouse. Thats still a **** load of prototypes. lol Doesnt make sense why there would be that many "prototypes" that are all the same amp.
