    My SK-1500.1 is junk

    Last time im buying Skar amplifiers. Only put out 750watts @ .7 ohm and is starting to randomly jump into protect mode again AFTER being repaired.

    Skar amplifiers are complete junk and i advise anybody against buying them

    EDIT 10/13:

    A cut in the speaker wire may or may not have attributed to this. It has stopped going into protect and running solid once again. My apologies to Skar for the butthurt

    Re: My SK-1500.1 is junk

    49 volts divided by 15.3 amps = rise to 3.2 ohms...........So you are getting 750 watts @ 3.2 ohms out of an amp rated at 500 watts @ 4 ohms........Other than the protection thing it sounds like its Under rated just a tad.........

    My old audiopipe pushed out more power on the same rise. An amp should not be going into protection @ 3.2 ohms either way

    don't screw someone else with that POS...take a Florida vacation and beat the shit out of that Kevin dude with it, or throw it in the trash where it belongs.
