    MD2D Too much power for my sub so how much is it worth?

    Hey all I am new here but been around audio for a while. I picked up a US Amps MD2D but have decided to go with a smaller amp. So I'm considering selling it. Any input as for a reasonable price would be much appreciated.

    Here are the specs:
    1500W RMS x 1 @ 1 Ohms but other forums show posts where actual output is close to 1900 watts at 1 Ohm.
    1000W RMS x 1 @ 2 Ohms
    550W RMS x 1 @ 4 Ohms
    S/N Ratio: 80dB
    THD: >.09%
    Damping Factor: > 100
    Frequency Response: 20Hz - 250Hz
    Variable Crossover Control: 40Hz - 250Hz, 24dB/Octave, Butterworth
    Variable Bass EQ: 30dB Boost @ 45Hz
    Subsonic Filter: 15 Hz - 40 Hz, 24dB/Octave
    Low Level RCA Input
    1 Gauge Power Inputs
    8 to 18 Gauge Speaker Outputs
    Power and Protect Indicators
    Class D
    Dimensions: 2-1/2"H x 10-1/2"W x 18-1/4"L

    Works perfect, but has scratches on the top. Pictures to come. Only issue is that the red and white rings on the input rca's are gone. This does not affect the performance whatsoever. But hey it is what it is.

    Maybe I should just list it and roll the dice for sale or trade.

    I am pretty conservative and OCD on things so I would give it a 7/10 cosmetically but 9/10 mechanically. Works perfect except for the fact that the red and white rca rings popped out. You know the ones that are at the tip of the rca inputs that are about 1/16" thick? It doesn't affect performance at all. But they popped out then I used monster cable rca's that seem to have slightly thicker male RCA connectors.

    do you want a amp with a smaller footprint or a amp that is less powerful? if its the later id just keep it and set the gains or run it at a higher impedence.

    Just need a smaller footprint. Otherwise, this thing kicks butt.
