    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.

    Re: clipping lights on amps

    i actually wish more car amps had this feature. almost every pro audio amp has this feature and it works great when setting up the gain structure. i've put an o-scope on the outputs of those amps and every time, the clip light is actually clipping before the sine wave clips. i'm sure they could incoporate this feature into car audio amps.

    Re: clipping lights on amps

    DD has them.

    It was actually very nice I thought. When it clipped too much, it would turn the amp off.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    Re: clipping lights on amps

    my old infinity amp had this. it was great because this was the first amp i ever got and knew nothing about car audio. so i didn't know anything about clipping but knew it was bad so when the light started to go off i turned the gain down and it was gone!

    Re: clipping lights on amps

    My Soundstream Rubicon 702 has them (as well as all of the Rubicon line IIRC)

    Though I've never tested to see how accurate it actually is.
