I am so happy (so far) with this amp that I stopped right in the middle of installing it to write this review! I hooked it up to test and listen to it before installing it as I do all of my products and I am VERY impressed! I have been into higher end a/v systems (home theater & car audio) for 30 years. I am familiar with the high end brands as there are not that many (JL, Fosgate, Alpine etc...), but there are lots of low to mid level equipment that I am not that familiar with as I have always ran high end systems. However, I can't afford a high end system in 2 cars, and this is the first time that I have owned 2 cars. I bought and have been running another very good amp (Phoenix Gold Xenon 200.2) on a single 12" Kicker CVR, bridged to 400 watts at 4 ohms, but it just did not impress me very much. Everyone else liked it, but it seemed lacking in impact to me. At first I thought that my judgement might be off since I'm running a JL Audio 1000/1 on 2 Kicker 10" L7's in my other car, so I decided to try a different amp. It could also be that the Xenon is a Class AB amp and draws a lot of power that my stock alternator can't supply (I spent $600 on a custom built alternator for the JL, but can't afford another one for my daily driver). I researched for about 3 weeks before deciding on this amp. I wanted 500 watts to run at a 4 ohm load with plenty of power left over for future subwoofer upgrades, should there be any. The reviews on this amp were better than a lot of amps costing 2 or 3 times as much. Anyway I hooked it up and it pretty much blows the Xenon out of the water on subs, but keep in mind that the Xenon is really a 2-channel amp with no subsonic filter, bridged to run subs, and it did sound good, it just did not HIT like I wanted it to. The Onyx sounded as good, and hit a lot harder than the Xenon with roughly the same power, and it did not even get warm! Keep in mind I'm running it at a 4 ohm load with 500 watts, so I'm not even beginning to tap the real power in this amp. I will write another review should I ever do that. To make a long story longer, you will not be in the least bit disappointed with this amp. I must mention to that it is also one of the finest looking amps that I have ever seen! To sum it up, unless you have a lot of money to spend on a JL, a higher end Fosgate, or a similar high end amp, then I would definitely recommend this amp, or brand as a whole to go with. Now I may look into one of their 4 channel amps to replace my Ken wood that is getting to hot.
