I feel strangely drawn to this LOL. Would love to show off a nice sounding sub setup and then pop the trunk and see the looks on peoples faces when they see a sony back there. Cosmetics aside this is actually a very nice amp.

I think that's only because of how young a lot of people who are into sounds systems are, they don't know about the previous quality of a lot of products such as Sony Mobile ES, MB Quart, etc. I can't say a whole lot myself either seeing as how I'm not exactly old born in 93.

There's a whole generation out there that has no reference for what it was like in the hay days of well built gear. Some will never even hear truly good sound. Sad, really.

WAAAAY better than what they have these days a board with a single capsitor and rest is empty its pathetic in every way makes Pyle look like gold.

But I don't see how it's a sleeper amp? With 75 amps fuse guessing it won't do anything more than that 1000 if that? Nice amp decent price for the wattage glws

I hear you, though. I guess I just meant sleeper as in, people wouldn't normally expect this kind of performance from this particular xplod line. In fact, if you peer inside the others from this exact line they look very different and very unimpressive.

that 1.2% though :(

RMS power at 1 ohms: 1000 watts x 1(20-300Hz, at 1.2% THD)

that 1.2% though :(Completely negligible, especially for a subwoofer. In that frequency range, the ear brain system cannot detect disortion less than about 10-12%. Maybe about 5-6% if it's a pure tone.

I think a lot of you confuse max output clipping distortion with THD created by crossover distortion between transistors. Two very different things.
