I was first pointed to this amp when I was looking for a monoblock to power my 2 Rockford P1's when I first got into the whole Car Audio thing. It was cheap compared to a lot of the other amps, and the specs were better than the 2 channel Kenwood I had running my subs before.

When I got it, I must say I was a little surprised at its size. Relatively small compared to my previous one, but I had my car stereo enthusiast neighbor help me hook it up, and tune everything just right. The difference was like night and day. Maybe it was because the "professionals" who hooked up my stuff at ABC Warehouse were not so professional, or maybe this is just a much better amp, but regardless it worked great and it has been for nearly 2 years now.

I'm currently powering 2 ten inch Alpine Type R's with this 1000 watt monoblock and they still sound amazing, and right around what you need for them.

The only downside that comes to mind is that rap songs, or any song with a lot of continuous heavy bass, at loud volumes, can cause the amp to shut off and go into protect mode. This really isn't such a bad thing, as it protects the product you paid for, but its just a little inconvienent because I can't get the thing to go back to normal without turning my car off, and then back on again. I figured turning the headunit off, and turning the power off to the amp, then letting it sit 15 minutes would do the trick, but no luck.

Still works great, and I just tuned the gain down a tiny bit so that doesn't happen anymore.

Really no complaints. Good solid amp, just the right amount of power, and it was quick and easy to swap out my 2 channel amp for this one. So for 150$, this is a steal to me.
