GREAT SQ SUB AMP!

Cons: Not quite enough power for the greedy JL w7 sub...
Dominating SQ AM! No one can match the quality of engineering! Alan setscrews easily strip and are not replaceable! Huge flaw! The only amp better is the JL 1001! :) Read More at Epinions.com

Great amplifier for intermediate to advanced users!!
Pros: RIPS, infrasonic filter, balanced inputs, low THD, crossover
Cons: Pricey, Bass EQ poorly designed, built in alan screws, warranty
Buy it if you can get it for anything in the $300 range, but at $549 it is not worth it. Read More at Epinions.com

Phenomenal Amp for SubWoofer Use
Pros: Powerful, flexible configuration, small, clean and clear
Cons: Not quite enough for super-power-hungry subs- also, doesn't like 2 ohm loads
For the price, I couldn't ask for more- this thing SLAMS my boston pro 12.5LF *(4ohm) and fits in the smallest spaces. Clean, clear and slammin. Well done JL Read More at Epinions.com
