Listen, if you're here reading this you've heard of the JL 1000/1. Its a legendary amp. I lusted after it for years, and finally broke down and bought one about 6 months ago.
I installed it for about 2 hours, then took it right out. Put it back in the box. and Began contemplating exactly what was needed to upgrade my car before i put the JL back in. The fuse rating is 100 in the manual, but dont get things confused, since this amp is regulated, its sucking more power from your vehicle.
At the time, i had 1 JL 450/4v2 and this JL 1000/1v2. It was absolutely DESTROYING my car. I dont have any electrical upgrades, i didnt need it before this amp. So that would be why.
If you plan on getting this, know that you will need at least 1 extra battery. Big 3 with a high output alternator is obviously the right way. But think about it before you buy.
That said, it sounds amazing. The JL slash amps are over rated according to everyone that tests them. ie, the 500/1 got about 650 watts, and im sure this is somewhere along those lines. 1100-1200 watts.
Its obscenely CLEAN, has loads of power, tons of tuning options. Excellent amp.
