Pros:Price (shop around) Clean, clear sound Preamp outs built-in Better looking than pictured

The Bottom Line: Good match for price and sound quality conscious people. Not good for SPL subwoofer-driving...


Picked up 2 of these when Fry's was closing them out for $37. Sold one to a friend. My system:

JVC KDS6250 cd player
Infinity reference 3 1/2 (pair)
Soundstream Granite Pro B6x9 (pair)
Memphis Studio 12" sub in 1 cu/ft sealed box
Jensen LXA300 amp (200x1 bridged)

I drive the sub with it in a system that I play at moderate levels. I'm going for sound quality, and I'm really satisfied with the performance, reliability, and sound quality of this setup. My friend's system:

Pioneer 7400 Cd/mp3
All memphis speakers: 2- 5 1/4" 2- 6x9 1- studio 15" sub in 2 cu-ft sealed box (homemade, very meticulous)
Memphis amplifier for sub (st-600? it's big...)
Jensen lxa300 for 6x9's (75x2 @4 ohm mode)

This system can change your breathing habits, and offers optional heat and massage! The jensen beefs up the rear deck speakers nicely and has been reliable in a system that is played LOUD!

The only people that are unhappy with this amp seem to be using it to drive one or multiple subwoofers really loud- and then they complain it doesn't last. So if you want to use it in a noisy setup, don't use it to power the wattage-thirsty subs. Because of the above complaints, I probably wouldn't buy one used. I never opened mine to have a look inside.
