This amp is great! Ran several kicker amps in the past but this by far my favorite. Small footprint and clean install. Plenty of power for my XQW 10". Highly recommend for a single sub install.

February 11, 2014 Great amp. Keeps cool

I have this amp running two Kicker Solobaric L7 8". I drives them extremely hard. I have the amp mounted in the trunk, between the outer sheet metal of the car and an inner piece of sheet metal. It is mounted on a custom metal bracket completely behind the finished carpet part of the trunk, with absolutely no airflow. As a test, I played my music much louder than I would normally listen for over an hour. I can remove a small plastic plug in the trunk and feel the amp with my finger. To my surprise, it was completely cool to the touch. No heat generated at all. I like the built in crossover and the ease of using it with either high or low level inputs. You will either need to purchase or build an adapter of you are going to use the speaker level inputs. The only complaint I have with the amp is the remote. It is quite large and wide, making it almost impossible to disassemble and custom mount in your dash. The Kicker CX amplifiers have a remote half the size that is easily taken apart and mounted in a knockout panel on the dash. Overall, I love this amp and would recommend it. Just be sure you are ok mounting the remote under the dash in the supplied housing.

I've owned this amp for 6-months and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for straight raw clean power. No matter how long I run the amp it never gets hot. I am pushing 1-15" Kicker CVR sub in a vented competition style box with a 5-farad capacitor to pull juice off of when I'm pouring on the bass heavy. It hits so hard it makes my vision blur when riding around town. I love feeling the bass beating in my captain's chairs up front too! Definitely one of the clearest sounding sub amps I've ever heard! My next upgrade will be the Kicker IX1000.1
