|January 29, 2012||Last amp I will ever need to buy.||
RFpontiacG6 from Metro Detroit, Michigan
Just purchased this amp the other day and already fell in love with it. I'm using it to push 2 2011 model P2 subs which are wired to 4 ohm. At 4 ohms this amp does a little more than rated. My birthsheet says 1176. My subs can only handle 800 total, i just turned the amp down a little bit, although i can probably turn it up some more but boy does this amp power these subs like no other. cleanest sounding amplifier i have ever heard. i have a friend with a 1000 jl audio with 3 10s and i think this sounds much cleaner. Reason why i bought this amp is because it will probably be the last amp i will ever have to buy. at 2 ohms birthsheet says 1774 and at 1 ohm it says 1928. This amp will surely power any subwoofer you hook it up to. I plan on getting a 3rd P2 and wiring the amp to 2.67 ohms and it should produce between 1200 and 1300 no problem. If i decided to get a 4th sub and wireing it to 2 ohms it will still produce more than the 1600 the subs would need. Just a reason on why i bought this amp.
The other amazing thing about this amp is that it stays cool! I've been pounding this amp for 30 minute time incriments and immediately i would touch the amp once i shut my car off and i never feel any heat from the amp. Just a little warmth from the heatsinks. That also means the heatsinks are doing their job. I love this amp.
Also for the amount of power this amp produces, almost 2000 watts rms! this amp is pretty damn small. I mean compared to the jl audio v2 1000, this thing is maybe half the size. When i purchased this amp i was deffinitly thinking it would be bigger. Overall i think this amp is most likely the best amp you can buy when compared to other top brands.
OVERALL: i give it a 5.
VALUE: i give it a 5, only because i purchased it from a local car audio shop who was certified to deal RF. i paid like 20 bucks more for the amp then here but the 2 year warranty from RF is reassuring.
LOOK/DESIGN: i give it a 4 because i like the design. It looks very sharp and clean, but i would have liked to maybe see the Fosgate logo illuminate.
DURABILITY: i give it a 5 because it feels very very sturdy. the heavy thick heatsinks are promising and if something were to hit the sides of it, the amp internals would be safe. although i havent had it long enough to figure out the lifespan and other long term stuff.
FEATURES: i give it a 4 because i would have liked to see the infrasonic filter to be adjustable and also it would have been nice if RF included the bass knob with it. i mean this amp retails for 800, at the least RF could show some customer appreciation and include it.
EASE OF USE: i give it a 4 because very simple hookups for good connections but loses a star because i would like it if the controls were not mounted so deep up into the amp casing.
