    New 1200/1 Slash vs. 1200/1 HD

    So I have an opportunity to get a good deal on these amps, and I'm wondering which one would be better. Are there any real differences in quality, power or life expectancy?

    If the HD can put out the same power in a smaller package, why would they still make the slash amp?

    The Slash series has superior signal processing...variable subsonic filter, bass eq, etc.

    ...Well said.

    right, and if you have the room over the hd, it has a much larger chassis for better cooling.

    hd does get significantly hotter. i just got it and im pretty surprised by how hot it gets. im sure the slash stays a lot cooler. and people are right about better settings.

    I used the 1200/1HD for 2 months then tried the 1000/1 V2 and liked the 1000/1 V2 better. Like the others said the 1200/1 will have more tuning options and the cooling is excellent. My 1200/1 HD got hot. Surprisingly my JL JX 1000/1D had better performance than the HD 1200/1. Bass wise the HD 1200/1 had a little more power but the JX 1000/1D never got hot. Even on 95 degree days during the summer. I keep that amp as a backup.

    I would pick the 1200/1 from the Slash series.

    My 1000/v2 slash ran ice cold and was easily the best amp I've owned. Espicially in the 1000w range.






    REFS alot
