Works Great

November 3, 2010

We bought this amp/receiver to run multiple speekers at our car show. We run a cd player with a mono output into the amp and power 8 speekers. We also use it as the PA system. It works great! I would recomend (I have recomended) this to anyone who needs to power multiple speekers. I was worried about the 16 ohm speeker requirement, and unable to locate any 16 ohm speekers. It ran fine on 8 ohm speekers. I'm no engineer, I'm sure there is a reason for it, but we have had no problems yet. I was really impressed with the tuner, it gets GREAT reception!
