It's tough to find a 5-channel amp this small or smaller at such a reasonable price. I have it driving an active front stage (Morel Tempo 6 components) and an 8" low-profile Pioneer subwoofer.

Can't comment on the crossover/filtering functions as I'm using a separate DSP for that duty, but the amp delivers plenty of clean power with no issues of overheating or anything else for that matter. Nice design, except I agree that the alternating positions for + and - on the speaker terminals is annoying. Since that's my only complaint, you gotta figure this is a downright fine amplifier for this price range (and even above it).

I kind of went out on a limb ordering this (came in a combo package with CTX-6.5cs the CTX-6.5 the ID12 D4) I had never heard of RE Audio until I had shopped around for a new system for my 04 Trailblazer. I am by no means an audiophile, but I know what sounds good.

Being a digital amp, you can definitely hear the clarity that this thing offers. (Before I installed my new system, I hooked the speakers up to an analog amp to try to compare) My system sounds bright, loud and powerful. This amp pushes my system beyond what I would ever want to be in my truck for.

Having a 5 channel amp all in one rather small package is really convenient when you don't have a lot of space to work with. I was able to neatly tuck it under my passenger seat.

I would definitely recommended this amp for those looking for a great 5 channel amp.

This amplifier has small enough footprint to fit on the bottom of my subaru forester seat, out of kicking/harms way as well as unseen. It has plenty of power to run 4x decent 6's as wel as a 10" sub (polk db651's and mm1040).

Separate inputs for each channel, something that a couple of amps i have seen of similar size dont' have. Overall the system was very bright for my taste- but i'm not sure if that is from the speakers or the amp (not the deck as i have had 2 different decks in and they are the same). Have cut ramping from -2db @ 8khz to -8db at 20khz.

I do not personally own this amp, however I ordered it for a friend that I did the install for and it was a great buy imo. It had the power he required to run his already purchased Hertz Dieci 6.5s. and had plenty of power for the RE 8 in a custom box. I would recommend this amp to anyone looking for power in a small package.

My only complaint is the speaker wire terminals, they alternate +/- which is sort of a pain to deal with, which is why I rate it a 3 for design. Overall appearance is nice.

This is a great little amp to power your whole system. Good sound quality, and plenty of power for your sub as well. I'm glad I bought it. So much power in such a small amp.
