    I doubt you can expect "clean" power, but if your goal is to satisfy a spl meter, they will work. A S/N ratio of 70db is about 10db lower than I will buy in any amplifier, personally. You seem to have the electrical to support it, which is where I suspect most people who have mechanical troubles with them fail. For $50, it is a ok deal...they are only about $120 new online. No where near the quality of the Amp you have now, but with your choice of equipment, I doubt you will be able to distinguish the sonic differences anyway.

    Want an SPL meter for a lot less than the cost of a Termlab, but just as accurate and has more features and support? PM me.

    Yes. And you got a GREAT deal. Just set it with a dmm to 1200-1300 watts, since your electrical will not stay at the 14 volts it requires to make rated.

    Not below 14 volts.

    Really? My maxxsonics 2k sounds worlds better than my old apsm1500.... and it doesnt make my coils stink when the voltage drops even just a lil bit... and its louder.
