The brand new MSK Series amplifiers are now in stock and a new product line from Skar Audio, so what we did today was go ahead and throw them on the test bench here in our office to test power via clamp testing...

Testing conditions/setup was identical on both amps, allowing for an easy comparison between the line. We are very happy with the results, and this will give you a baseline reference point when browsing and choosing from the compact amplifiers on the market.

We will also be posting the results from our SMD AD-1 Amp Dyno testing in this thread as well, so you can see a side by side comparison of the results from each method used...
