    Boss Amp is probably the biggest joke in Mobile Audio history....... They probably put out 1/5 of their peak power, if you are lucky. 3000 watts man....... You will need at least two H.O alternators.......upgrade all electric lines in the car......good luck

    hang on a minute......SOME boss amps (ok 1 ) are actually not too bad........

    its their rev range 3000d d class which does around 1400RMS reliably and is basically the same amp on the inside as a Lanzar d class of that size and some other amp i cant remember, but its the same circuit board.....can be had for like $250 so even cheaper and same power if not more than 1 1200.1
