    shark audio 2500.1 Whats your thoughts?

    So i found it on ebay and over 200 of them sold, i did some research before buying it and seen the pics of the board and how well it was moving some sundown audio 12's. Just curious if anyone has had one in the past? I said what the hell, for $100 bucks ill take a chance.

    Same as Audiopipe AKA garbage. Enjoy highly inflated RMS ratings, distorted power, very low efficiency, and poor build quality that contributes to lots of DOAs/premature failures

    Buy a used Hifonics BRZ and get a decent amp that doesn't completely suck

    Just used one in a friends build I did. I paid $98 with free shipping on ebay. Its pushing 2 10" type R's in a standard cab dodge pretty well. Its only been installed for about a month so cant chime in on durability.....
