Awesome Amp

My friend has this amp on 2 Kicker L7's 12"s. His system is loud you can hear him from like 2-3 blocks away. I would recommend it.

VS
great amp for the money

Well let me start off by saying if you are looking for 5000 watts do not buy this amp. It is 5000max not rms. But when making a purchase like this u should do your homework and know these things. Now to the amp its self. This amp is great for me I was looking for 3000rms at 1ohm. And it does that all day long. It beats my two planet audio bb2400 12" Subs hard. I gave it only two stars on ease of use and durability because the first one I bought completely blew up on me after a month. It poped and filled my truck with smoke and the back fed and blew up my remote turn on on my deck. But I knew some had done that before I bought it so I returned it which was a breeze at sonic electronix. And now I've got one that works and I love it . I had mine clamped and it is doing 3280 watts at 1ohm and I couldn't be happier . Because I wasn't looking for 5000watts just at least a solid 2500watts so im super pleased .

I highly recommend this amplifier! I have two of them.They do exactly what they say they do! My friends can't believe how effective these 2 amplifiers are. Thanks sonic electronics for making it easy and affordable! My amplifiers were tested at 1ohm @ 14.8 volts and mines are doing 4187 watts and 4193 watts! My planet audio ac 5000.1 d's are awesome!

Had some issues with r/b amps. With Andrew's help, and a little more money, I am very impressed with his customer service skills. Thanks again, Andrew!!!! As for the amps, I am running one on each of my 15" mofo subs, and now it is hitting twice as hard as it did with the Boss Phantoms.

P.S. Don't run the r/b Phantoms 5000d under a 2 ohm load. They just can't handle it, and again, I have to say thanks to Andrew for hooking me up with these Planet Audio 5000.1d amps for a good price. I will be calling you again, Andrew.

I got this amp back in Oct. of 2013, it lasted about a month & a half, before it started going in & out of protection mode! I have it hooked up to 2 12" American Bass XFL. It was hitting hard; way better than my last set-up. But anyways, I returned it to where I got it from for a new with no problem & I'm right back beating! After reading some of the reviews, I guess I'm not the only one that this has happened to. But other than that, it seems to be a good amp for the money & does power my subs!! Hopefully you get one that doesn't blow in a month or so & can write a better review but for the price it will power whatever you're trying to push!!

I bought this amp (Planet Audio ac5000.1d) to power my 15.4 Orion HCCA. i didn't think it could move the monster sub but it did amazingly well. It wasn't cheap because i had to buy 2 XS Power 3400d batteries so my lights in my car wouldn't dim plus the 0 gauge wire. Once you have the power for the amp, I highly recommend this amp. Had it for about 3 or more months and still no problems and running strong. With Sonic Electronix's fast shipping it only took 2 days to show up on my front porch. So thank you Sonic Electronix!

Have it running 2 750 watt rms ppi ph10s and have it about a quarter of the way on with no boost running at 2 ohms and this thing pushes all the power they can handle and then some.

First off had for a week and it was amazing. Bass was extremely deep. My only issue was that amp died shortly after. Something was rattling in amp I guess shorted it out.
My replacement is on the way can't wait. Thinking about buying some Rockford t2 speakers for amp.
Other than faulty amp seems like great product.

my original plan was to have 2 of these. 1 for each sub but I decided to try just 1 to push my Lanzar Maxp154ds in a 8.0 sealed enclosure wired @1ohm and it beats ur brains out. i have the system in 97 Cherokee Country and its the loudest system ive had to this day it was tuned at R.S here in the upstate SC and the rms output @ 14.4v was just under 3000 watts. it blew my mind because I didn't think that could have been achieved with my stock electrical setup, but by far 1 amp is all I needed so im happy with the outcome of it. there is no need to add a second amp but I am upgrading my battery and alternator. soon ill have a new box built and ported this time instead of sealed and have it tuned to about 38-40hertz. over all I do recomend this amp for the price you wont be disappointed if everything is installed correctly and tuned properly

Loved the build quality, look and feel of this bad boy! Was flexing the heck out of my 2 10" DVC 6Ohm subs. I like the black metal finish on it. Hefty solid feeling too! Unfortunately I had to return it because it was 2" too big to fit behind my Dodge RAM cab. I called up Sonic and they were great about doing a swap and me paying the difference for a Hifonics Brutus Amp. Thanks Sonic peeps!

Purchased this AMP to power two 10" 6OhmDVC Audiobahn's that required major power and this AMP was flexing those bad boys @ 1.5Ohm. I loved the look and feel of the AMP, it was just 1 1/2" too big to fit behind my QuadCab dodge RAM. Had I removed the insulation and built an AMP rack (which is the right way), it would have fit. But it was just too much work. The good news is the helpful guys at Sonic let me swap the AMP and I paid the difference of course. Any how, this AMP provided excellent power to those 10's.
