    Re: Stetsom... Opinions

    i wouldnt touch them, but thats my opinion. burp oriented amps, and just like the rest of the brazilian amps, unreliable. once again this is all my own opinion.

    Yeah these are the comments im seeing... Almost one for one on the pos and neg's. I just am not sure i want to put up the grand for something i dont know much about. Although what caught my eye was that they are full power either 1ohm or 2ohm amps and im looking for around 6800wrms at 2ohms.

    Re: Stetsom... Opinions

    I know alot about the stetsom and sd amps. The Stetsons are the better of the two brands. But the newer versions. Need to stay under 14.4 volts period also do not mount them on the box ever. The boards aren't strong enough to take the vibration from the box and the internal parts are very nice. But a bit heavy for the board Look for an older kd model. You'll be better off

    Wouldnt run them on subs, but I plan on getting some 5ks and 7ks for my mids. They work great for voice.

    there are a ton of amps out there that are 1ohm stable. you just keep insisting on being on the cheaper side of things on them, no offense cause thats the same thing i been saying for years.

    not true on the cs ,you just need to know who to call ,or email that is .i've always been helped very quickly from stetsom .i bought a 7kd about 4 years ago that had been repaired ,from they're repair center in the north somewhere. well needless to say that repair center did crappy work and the amp blew in a week,worst than before to . i emailed the owner and since the amp was under a repair warranty ,he sent me a brand new amp instead of trying to repair mine again.mind you it took 4 weeks ,but i was cool with it because of the cs from mari and andrea at stetsom
