I tried to return this because it was cutting in and out on the front channel. They sent it right back to me the same day they received it and said it was fine. There is a loose connection inside and the face plate moves. If the plate is in the correct position the amp works fine. But if it moves just a fraction of an inch, the front channel shuts off. I had it checked out and ended up having to make a small gasket to wedge between the face plate and the switch to keep pressure on it so the connection would stay and now that has failed.
Sonic electronics wouldn't do anything about it and it's passed return/exchange date (which they wouldn't let me do the first time anyway... I asked to exchange for a different brand)
Get a different brand from the start. I chose this one because it had some good reviews but it seems if you happen to get a lemon, you're screwed. Not worth the gamble to me in the future.
Powerful little monster
Purchased this amp on a whim. I tried looking for more reviews before dropping the coin, but couldn't find any on other sites. After receiving the amp and installing it, all I can say is my door speakers sound WAY better than being run off of deck power. I initially had a set of Kenwood KFC-P710PS components in the front, Kenwood Excelon KFC-X174 coax's in the rear running off of a Sony MEX-XB120BT. With the speakers now being powered by the NVX-VADM4 amp they are much more detailed and louder. I didn't think that such a small amp would be able to deliver enough power to make them sound as good as they do now. If you have a vehicle with confined space or just don't want a huge amp taking up room I would definitely recommend the NVX-VADM4. It's one badass product.
Great little amp.
I have purchased 3 of these amps and will continue to buy them for different applications on motorcycles. In the bridged mode, they provide the perfect amount of power to 6x9 speakers in lids. They have superior sound quality in either standard setup or bridged. No worries of overheating. Two of them will sit side by side in a Harley fairing and provide ample power to any 4-6 speaker setup providing 110+ db of clear sound that can be heard at ANY speed on a motorcycle. Nvx has done their homework on this little amp.
Small, powerful, and very easy to install.. just want I needed..
Perfect for classic cars
Loud cars need loud stereos, and this little gem gets the job done. I have this in my 1972 Duster mounted on the firewall running a pair of JBL Stadium GTO930s and a pair of Cerwin Vega H746s, and it sounds amazing. It's small enough to hide just about anywhere and packs plenty of power. I highly recomend this to anyone with classic cars who wants to keep their system hidden.
This a great product. I bought this for my 2016 Roadglide. It's surprising how powerful this amp is. The sound is crisp and clear. Travis was a great help with choosing the right amp.
Have ordered this amp for several Motorcycle setups. Runs cool and plenty of clean power. Also small enough to fit into the fairing.
Snap NVX Done It Again
Had the mvpa4 upon release. Perfect size for my bike. Finally went to upgrade speakers and everything. Upon opening the box for the amp it fell right into a puddle from my lap. Upon looking I found theyre now marine rated! Also very minimal Scratching! New power availabilty is going to power everything nicely!
Awesome little amp!
Using this simply to allow running all 8 speaker locations in a 2012 4runner. Simple to set-up gets hot, but doesn't seem to be a problem.
I've got 6 nvx door speakers and a pair of pioneer 3" in the dash. 2ohm on all 4 channels still sounds great.
The size is tiny, power is amazing i'm powering a JL W0 10 and JL components , the gain isn't even up. Nice space saver and it's just as big as my Iphone XR. It exceeds my expectations . Will buy again.
Decent for price
Decent amp for the price fortunately I paid way less for this amp RCA input plugs are cheap and wires pull out of plug and fray. The new waterproof amps look a lot better built if nvx would make better RCA inputs this amp would be a 5 star. amps installed on a 2015 H-D road glide..
This is the 2nd one I’ve bought. One for my boat and others for my Harley. Fits anywhere and sounds great. The one in my boat did get hot an turn off periodically but it’s played at full inside a 100+ degree compartment. Haven’t installed in the Harley yet but sure it’ll work just as great.
Amazing little amp
This app is so small but yet produces so much power I was shocked when I first saw it but it definitely does what it needs to lots of power very clean sound
I barely had to tap into this thing's power to bring everything to life. This has to be an underrated wattage. My door speakers are absolute monsters powered by this amp.
Loved the sound just didn't last
When I unboxed the VADM4 it was very small but felt way heavier than it looked and I noticed the flimsy little plastic connecters on the rca input wire harnesses so when I mounted it to my amp rack I made sure that they were completely secured so as not to be able to move at all. I had it running two sets of tweeters and was amazed at the power and sound the little thing put out. I had it for about 1 1/2 years and all of a sudden I was getting engine noise through tweeters. I did normal troubleshooting loose ground etc. Then I touched rca harness and it stopped so I thought it might have vibrated out(amp rack is not connected to sub box) I took off driving and got 2 blocks and started smelling electrical catastrophe I have a master switch that I can shut down everything on amp rack so I hit the switch and the VADM4 was smoking like a chimney. I do not know what happened to it but I have to assume it had something to do with those those chincy generic plastic rca inputs. I would not recommend the VADM4 unless those inputs were redesigned much sturdier. If that happened I would buy another one
Great amp!.....when it worked
Install was easy and straightforward. Adjusted the settings according to the SMD CC1 and DD1. During testing, noticed the unit would get hot. Really hot. Had to let it cool down before proceeding with the rest of the installation otherwise it would burn my hands.
Amp lasted about a year before it stopped working. During the year, it would intermittently go out before finally kicking the bucket right after the 1-year warranty.
Ordered another one and hopefully, it lasts longer than the first one and doesn't run as hot.
Small Amp BIG PUNCH
This thing is amazing it really cranks out the power and it pushes more power than it says! My 4 speaker system that this Amp is connected to is LOUD,CLEAN, and CLEAR!!! I am using this Amp on my 2018 Harley Road Glide
Good things come in small packages
This mini amp delivers big on sound. Fits under my front seat with room to spare. Once I got it tuned right I couldn't be happier. Powering a set of 6.5 co-axial rear door speakers and a set of 6.5 component speakers in front door. The music sounds better than I expected. NVX has made a believer out of me with this amp. Give it try I think you will be impressed.
NVX VADM4 Micro Amp Sound Good, but Runs Really HOT
Bought this little amp back in November, but finally installed it yesterday (April 3rd). Amp is tiny, and was bolted to the bottom of a Pioneer DMH-2660NEX. It fit perfectly with some home made brackets. Amp sounds good and plays loud on JBL Club 8622F 6"x8" speakers without too much distortion. The Bench Test on You Tube verifies the Amp's advertised specifications.
My only issue with this Micro Amp is the running temperature. The amp runs HOT, and I mean HOT. You can't hold the amp in your hands for more than 5 seconds. Now this design is supposed to be Class D, and should therefore not run this Hot. Nonetheless, I believe the amp needs a better designed heat sink, or a cooling fan. Only time will tell how long it will last, since Heat is the Achilles Heal of electronics.
I have used sonic for years and all their products worked as promised, knowledgeable staff, very good prices and you can depend on their products stats being correct including watts and specs!!
small not much heat easy to hide in car! It pumps
I have just recently been turned on to NVX. The fact that they are CEA certified is a huge plus for me and their prices are excellent.
Holy soy milk!
Had the 4 channel mini rockford t400bdx or whatever it's called & when I switched the crossover to full range it got stuck between frequency or something & smoked the amp after about 1 year & I needed something small cause there wasn't much room so I figured I'd try this mini amp for now.... it actually sounds better than the rockford ever did! I bought another one for back up & still spent much less then what the rockford cost. I'm so impressed with this little amp! Just buy it already! It's gonna surprise you, trust me!
Worked amazing, until it didn’t.
Loved this little amp, was powering all NVX speakers and sounded great!
Didn’t “pop” on start up
Crisp clear sound
Small foot print.
BUT one day it lost the front channels, amp is still under warranty but can’t get any emailed response from sonic electronics.
Product just as described, compact and powerful, sounds awesome on my street glide! Great seller! A+
Gets loud and clear! It has a warmer, more full sound than my previous Alpine power pack amp that went out. This amp gets louder than that amp and with less gain; so my turn signals and such in my 2015 GMC aren't quite as loud as before. Wish i would have picked this amp the first time.
Great - Harley Street Glide
This is a great amp, especially for bikes. It’s small, powerful, and reliable. It fit perfectly in the fairing. It’s paired with a Rockford Fosgate DSR1 and Infinity Kappa Perfects (fairing and bags) for pure sonic heaven. I see others spend a lot more on amps for their bikes and I don’t understand why.
If researching audio equipment for your Harley like I did, NVX is a good amp for your short list of contenders.
Great output for such a small amp!
NVX offers great quality for the price! The size of the amp and claimed output are what reeled me in. It fit my mother’s 1972 Karmann Ghia perfectly, she loves it!
Power in a small package
I'm really surprised at how this amp makes my front JBL GTO and rear JBL concert series speakers sound. Installation was a breeze.
