This amp has been a pleasure to own. Very small for a true 1000w RMS CEA compliant amp. The birth sheet that comes with these Rockford amps said it was tested at 1043w RMS, and I believe them! It pushes my two JL 10W3V3 at 2 ohm to their max, and only have it set to 3/4 gain. It has enough juice the flex my windshield and side and rear panels slightly, the mirrors all shake, rear-view will not stay up. Impressive for two 10 inch SQ subs! I have not been able to get this amp to heat up even after hours of pounding, great design! Crossover is great to cut out the higher freq bass so that you can blend with your front stage, and really get the clean low end punch. The Punch EQ is also great, I'd never buy an amp without it again now that I know what it can do! I find the punch on max allows you to turn the gains down for cleaner, better sounding signal amplification, and it helps to give less bassy songs like Rock some serious kick. The remote is also awesome, allows you to dial in your amp as you cycle through songs that have different levels of bass. A must for me from now on for subs (unless you have an EQ already or listen to only one style of music.) The only thing that you'll find on other amps that may make them preferable to you is the THD rating. Although this amp is still quite low at 1.0% Total Harmonic Distortion at rated RMS, the more expensive amps in this power range are .5 -.01% THD at rated power. But you are going to pay for that, and I personally doubt it matters because Rockford under-rates their amps whereas some of the companies advertising Low THD and Higher wattages are often not CEA Compliant and will not produce their rated power, therefore the THD cannot possibly be low at the rated power. I recommend this amp to anyone looking in this RMS range. You will not be disappointed!!
