Works very well with my Rockford Fosgate sub system in my car.
Pretty decent value for the price. Worked out great, thanks.
The wiring has done me right so far but the only thing I don't like is the speaker wires. You have to carefully split it so the wire doesn't show. Other than that minor thing everything was great and a great value!
Accessories for product
Just what I needed and made installation so much easier. Thanks
price is right
the price is right for this setup. the ground wire and the power wire are to big for my amp but i made them fit. better to have to much than not enough so if i upgrade to a larger amp it will be fine.
I run 2 12inch audiobahn exursions on this amp and it pushes them very well. The size is perfect not to big and fits right unerneath the seat or small space. The best part is it stays pretty cool even after running most the day.
I like the wire kit I got with my amp it seems to be holding up goo it handles the power of the amp I got but I would of gave it 5 stars all the way around but I wold of like the ground at less 2 more feet for good use but over all its a nice kit
Great product last a long time good value for the money.
Good product fast shipping awsome seller... keep up the good work.....
SoundStorm SSL EVO5000.1 Slams!
I hooked up this amp with 4 gauge wire ( which is all it can take ) without my second battery hooked up yet, and put it on a 12" sub 300 watt rms, and didn't even have the gain turned 1/4" of the way up and it slammed. Right now i'm waiting to get the money for my box for my power acoustic mofo 15" woofers i have 2 and will be wiring down to one ohm. Also i need my second wire kit to run to the battery. When I was playing hard low bass I noticed my voltage dropped low even with the gain barely up, so this amp is power hungry and you will need a second battery to run it. Overall i would say buy it, its a great deal and you will be happy with it, and at first i was a little bit timid to buy it but this thing defintley puts out at least 2000 watts rms and i guarantee more.
the description says 1/0 ga wiring needed to install. that is NOT true, 4 ga is the largest you can fit in the power/ground inputs. i had to buy gauge adapters/reducers in order to install as all my wiring is 0 ga.
runs very quietly and doesn't produce too much heat for now since it is the winter. however there aren't any FANS or VENTS on the amp to dissipate heat so i would not suggest running this amp for prolonged periods if it's the summer time or if you place the amp where there isn't A LOT of air circulation.
first thing i did when i got the amp was to put it on a bench and clamp it. at 2 ohms it clamped at 2600 watts, and at 1 ohm it put out 3750. i have it running 2 soundqubed hdc315 subs and it produces clear and accurate bass. not the best but at this price point, it's well worth the money. also had it running orion hcca 15.2 and it can really push that sub as well. i don't meter my vehicle so i couldn't tell u what i hit on the db meter.
there are a good bit of options to tune the amp to your musical preference and that's not very common in an amp this price range offering this much power. has options to run as either slave/master amp so if you need multiple amps this can do so. the remote gain knob is very convenient should u want to adjust gain level without having to go to the amp itself. however it is very sensitive; just the slightest turn really changes the gain.
aesthetically the amp is clean and sleek. design is very simple and doesn't look overly gaudy. the brushed nickel finish would look great if you want to showcase the amp rather than hide it during installation, but it does show smudges easily. no fuse block was included in my purchase as the pictures of the listing suggested.
i purchased the extended warranty through sonic when i bought it since it was provided by square trade, a company that i trust and have used in the past. SSL also provides an extra 5 yrs of extended warranty from the original purchase date if you want to take advantage of that instead. i am doing both.
overall for the price there aren't any amps that offer more power and more tuning controls. this is a great starter amp to get you set up until you can save up for a more powerful amp. but for my everyday use just running a pair of 15s it does the job just fine
Comes with everything you need. Works good with my 800w system
Does the job does what it needs to do. It was packaged nicely.
I purchased this for the value. Everything you need for a simple single amp install in one package. Good quality with good value, thanks.
Ok. not the best kit.
The eyelet connectors are flimsy and the speaker wire is hard to separate. When it does it exposes some of the copper. Otherwise the kit is ok.
Great Value Kit!
I would highly recommend this package to anyone looking to do a cheap install, i have friends who got these before and its nice, simple and cheap!
Never had any issues, great value!
You get what you pay for....
Bought this kit for my 650 watt rms amp. Not true awg 4 guage, but close.jacket is pretty thick.all wires flexible. Reached under the back seat of my 2008 silverado crew cab. But not a whole lot of slack if your going to a trunk. Fuse is ok... ive seen better and worse. Bottom line, if your on a budget and running 800 rms or under, this will work fine.
Good product , but not enough speaker wire to wire two front door speakers in a scion xb. I guess it would have been enough if I had run one of them with the power wire instead of running on the other side of car, but everybody knows that's a bad idea due to engine noise. You would think they would take that into consideration. Also not a big fan of the square and round speaker wire very hard to separate and strip without exposing bare wire.
Ran wire though firewall with ease m, and is powering my 1500 RMS amp no problem.
Very nice love what I got came two days early couldn’t ask for more
Best value and power
I got the amp and wired it up and it kicks so hard I had to replace my subs to 15" with the amp on half to keep my windows in.
Bought it to try out but is a really good power rating and not cheaply made for price and is really flexable
This kit had everything I needed to complete my installation. Great product.
This kit has a great price. Everything in the kit seems to be great quality much better than expected for the price. Very fast shipping. Everything you need to do a amp and sub install. Will be ordering more.
Belva BAK42BK (Black)
Great prices on great equipment and Fast delivery thanx sonic
I had the planet audio 4000 watt d class fist it lasted 3 weeks and just went out without warning I've had my new soundstorm for a month works great
Basic kit to get you going. Speaker wire needs to be just a little better.
Great bang for buck
I have had the amp for a few weeks now, it puts as much power to my 15s as I can handle, def great for bragging rights. I used 2ga 100% copper wire with etra battery, it pulls every bit of 200amps. Exactly what I wanted on a budget.
Was surprised with the quality of the copper and actual size of the wires compared to other cheap brands like Schoshe. Worth every penny.
pretty good stuff
I would like to say really good stuff but one thing the bass nob that is the only thing that was bad ,any way if at any time u guys need to test something new out I would like to test it out for u guys and give my feed back on it for u I got lots of friend and the new would spend fast any way keep up the good work
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!!
My cousin recommended this amp to decided to try it and am happy with it going to buy another one soon
It's a good amp. It pushing a plt15wd and I smell voice coils but the amp does heat up
SSL EVO 5k
I was quite hesitant to purchase this amp. After the purchase, I was stunned to find little to no information anywhere on the internet about this amp.
Whenever you go to discuss this amp, you must realise that there are two different Evolution amps in the SSL lineup, the EV series, and the EVO series. It's a massive difference. The EV series is certified junk. The ev4k Does 1600RMS at its limit.
The EVO amp, (the one I am wiriting a review for) seems to have a good amount of power. Not 5000, as the fuse rating for the amp is 200. 200 amps at 14.4 volts is approx 2800 watts.
This amp is seemingly purposefully difficult to disassemble. There is no back plate for you to remove and inspect the insides. you have to remove the side plates, too, with what seem to be small and who-knows-how-strong screws. They know that you will look inside and see that it is not a 5000 watt amp.
I have this amp pushing two skar svr's in a small sealed box, it hits quite well. Deep, clear, powerful. The amp doesn't get that hot but that's because it's mounted in my back seat and has tons of airflow. Mount one of these in a hot location and I'd expect it to die.
It has an Input level selector, millivolts to 2V, and the other option is 4v and higher. My head unit is 4v, yet, the amp is only happy when i select the 2v input option. No idea. But nothing seems to be malfunctioning...
SSL, please rename this the EVO.2500.1.
I would say, if you like this amp, go for it, but just understand that you're gonna be getting 2000ish rms at max. Which still makes it a decent amp for the price, in my opinion.
Three and a half stars. You can get higher quality amps that put out more power & are smaller for about the same price. I won't mention these amps or dealers out for respect for Sonic.
After reading reviews and most importantly watching the video Sonic posted with this product, I decided to give it a shot for my Cerwin Vega VPAS-12. The wires are exactly as described, true 4 gauge, not all insulation like the other brands. The fuse block is solid and easy to set up. I was worried it may not fit the VPAS connectors since they mention 8 gauge, but it works and it is holding in no problem.
The only thing I did change was the actual battery and ground terminals, they seemed weak, so i chose something stronger and all is well.
Thanks again Sonic!!
Easy to install.. I have 2 in my truck.. have had zero problems... Sound quality is excellent... Never leaves me missing a beat!!! Would recommend to anyone with large power requirements!!!
Very well made products
For the price, this installation kit is great. You can spend 4 times the amount for killer connections but if budget and functionality are key, this is the best.
Works very well, wish it included longer zip ties but overall a good kit that has true 4 gauge wire!
Great quality wire, plenty enough for the job. Works great and made my install a breeze.
Great product, great price does excalty what I needed it to do... would recommend for anyone who needs to get there AMP hooked up properly.... comes with everything you need to do the job right
I have this amp pushing 2 kicker 15s and it’s giving them hell. I would definitely recommend this amp.
i have two re sxx 12s big 3 upgrade extra kinetik 2400 battery in trunk mounted with sleeve all 0 gauge with o to 4 gauge reducers to the power and ground on the amp...im jus missing a upgraded alternator two keep up with the watts this amp wants but for now it still slams and im definetly not disapointed each sub i have is the re sxx 12 dual 2 ohm and each one is 2k max and 1 k rms a piece so this amp definetly paired up well with my subs seeing that i was trying to get at least 2 k rms pushed to the subs anything extra is a plus..i havent thrown it on a meter but it slams fine without a constant 14.5 voltage so i can only imagine how it will sound with the mechman alternator installed
ssl 5000 mono amp
Excellent amp great price im gonna invest in a couple more really soon i have this amp running 1 rockfard t1 15 and its giving this speaker hell. Why spend thousands on an amp when u can get this one and it maynot be as good as the $1000 amp but its just as good i love it....👊💪
This amp is the truth!!!! Dont waist your money on anything else! This ones got u covered.
For the price i have to much power i like this
I used it for maybe 20 minutes total before it burnt up an internal part. I had it connected to 4 8" massive hippo xl. The Amp was not at max and used wired recommended. Idk was doing the job well for its short lifespan I encountered with it.
Love these Amps
Ran with 2 strapped together for a couple years, finally separated them. i push these hard and hold up. i won’t buy anything else
