Excellent quality like you would expect from JL Audio
I upgraded from the jx 1000/1 to this JD 1000/1 monoblock amp and it is absolutely an upgrade further than what I expected. I expected almost the same product. Between the jx and the JD there are major differences when it comes to sound and signal management. My favorite aspect is the red ring that lights up around the game adjuster when you are getting a clipped signal. No more guesswork involved! This is especially helpful when you are doing the recommended gain adjustment that is given to you in your manual that comes with the amplifier. Personally, I need to keep my gain much lower than the level I could put it up to without getting a clipped signal, although it overloads my door and dash speakers. So in order to get the good sound quality, I must dial it back some so the mix is both hard-hitting but also collaborative. I use this amp to run a JL w3 V3 12-in subwoofer. I used to use it and run them in parallel down to two ohms and I found there is absolutely no need to run 2 of these subwoofers. Just one of them hits plenty hard enough. The amplifier is A cut above any other amplifier I have owned. Including my previous jx1000 version. There are three separate signal detectors. As I stated, there is a red light that comes on when you are getting a clipped signal when your gain is too high. Along with other little regular goodies such as your bass boost that is centered at 45 hz. I find no use in using the bass boost. But to each their own. I have always ran to our audio everything when it comes to speakers amps and subs. And as long as they continue their progress and engineering as they have in the past, I always will. Personally the best deal I could find online was from Sonic electronics.com and I think them for that. I've ordered multiple products from these guys. And most of the reason being is because they are the cheapest I can find, yet they are not just some backdoor slinging company. They are authentic dealers of whatever company they are selling for. Including JL audio.
