Pros: Good power output, decent warm sound for class D, clean solid design. Everything we have come to know and love about JL Audio is there. Cons: No built in fuse (so more parts to buy), Mine didn't last a year and just sent it back for warranty replacement. Sound started cutting out intermittantly and then back to normal volume a few minutes later, then cut out. Replaced amp with my Kappa Five while I'm waiting for warranty replacement. Sonic's Service agent said it was defective after testing. (Here's to hoping the new one is better) Overall: I bought it for the power and it seems to have plenty for my setup ( listed below). The design is not flashy it's a clean conservative look, and the size is perfect for stealth installs. The XD700/5's sound is pretty good although my Infinity Kappa Five has more clarity on the high end frequencies. Kappa Five lacks the power on the Sub channel even though the XD700/5 and Kappa Five are rated roughly the same power-wise. I will be installing my replacement XD700/5 for sure, I just hope my first one was just one of those things and the new one is what I would expect from JL Audio. Thanks Sonic Electronics for the easy return / exchange process. I've spent some $$$ with you guys over the years and you haven't let me down. KW-AVX840 Head, Infinity Kappa 63.9c, Infinity Kappa 693.9I, JL Audio CP212-W0v3 Subs.... Cruisin' in my Impala, Just waiting on more power.
