I bought this amp and installed it for a friend. This amp was wired at 1ohm and it appears to make 1kw.

Cosmetically its probably one of the least attractive that I've installed in a while. It just screams cheap - but It makes the power and thats all that matters. The mounting flanges are plastic, the trim is plastic as well.

The terminals are very nice and holds 4awg +/- wires with ease. The speaker wires will accept up to 10awg from what it looks (I used 12awg).

The opposite end of the power wires is the input signal end and adjustment knobs). The RCA connectors are decent quality as well. I really dislike the gain/crossover/etc knobs as they are very cheap in my opinion.

Although, this amp's intention is to power subwoofers, I would have like to see a crossover bypass switch (it was in an active install). Another oddity is that you HAVE to feed this amplifier a stereo signal, even though this amp is classified as a "mono".

Overall, the amp simply makes the power...if you can handle the uglyness (I did a custom install with the amp hidden with fans blowing across the heatsinks).
