    I wouldn't take a Brazilian amplifier if you paid me to.

    We have had a few customers amps, who had them installed correctly/professionally, go poof and Stetsom was not very helpful on the warranty process.

    No amp should be mounted to an enclosure.

    It's fine to mount amps to the box as long as your box doesn't flex...which if it is you have bigger problems

    Re: Stetsoms do rated?

    Stetsom is legit. Never had any problems with any of the 5 that I've owned. All did rated and then some (clamped my 2k6 doing almost 2k rising to 8ohms) Just as efficient, if not more efficient than my Koreans. I wouldn't hesitate to run them again. As a matter of fact... I might go looking for a 4k right now.

    Re: Stetsoms do rated?

    There are more people posting on this that have never ran stetsom before and have no idea what they are talking about it aint funny. Ran 1 14k2d daily and absolutely loved it. Best sounding amp i ever owned. She went down all the way to 10v and still kept going like a champ. Only down side of any 12v stetsom amp is that they go into protect for high voltage at 14.9v. So if you live where it gets cold and you charge high in the morning the amp will go into protect right off the bat and it gets pretty ******* annoying.

    Now i owned a 14k2e that i dont know if something was wrong with it or if it is just the series but it was absolute garbage. Wasnt as loud and was dirty *** hell. Id like to try a brand new one to see if it was a bad amp or what.

    I also owned 4 7kd's (the orginal one that gave stetsom a bad name) Them sons of ******* scared the hell out of me looking at the board because they looked so unstable. So i got rid of them before something bad happened.

    But i would buy stetsom again in a heart beat if i was amp shopping. It ***** you can really talk to anyone if you are having a problem besides email Jefferson Stetsom.

    There is a better summary of the last 3 models and my opinion for yah

    Re: Stetsoms do rated?

    They have less inputs than other amps because they use higher voltage and less amperage.

    I dont know if Id run it on bass, but Ill be running a Stetsom 5k on my highs.

    As with any product there are some stories that end with praise and others that end with less then stellar results. I base my position on multiple points.

    1. My personal experience
    2. My personal experience with that company(from an end user and business stand point)
    3. Also input from my amplifier repair tech.

    With that said, there are others who swear by them. My views are "personal" and "business". However, everyone is allowed their own opinion and can base it on what ever they wish. I remember meeting you and kyle both in Cape a few years ago and meetering your cars down there at the show. You both had good results and for that, I am happy for you.

    Re: Stetsoms do rated?

    Stetsom CS is garbage and you can't get them to warrenty anything. No one really fixes the large amps anymore, not even dB-R or ampmedics. I would veer away from them.
    They will do power.. but for the risk I wouldn't touch them.
