Big Bang in a small package

This amp does all of 1200 watts plus. Very clear and very powerful. Love it

Good clean amp, solid deal for the price.

I have had car audio as a hobby for 15 years now and am thoroughly satisfied with these amps and everything else I've acquired from NVX

Pros: Small size (seriously 1/4 the size of a lot of amps,) doesn't get very hot running @ 1 ohm pushing hard, it's quite efficient and not power hungry, good clean power!!!

Cons: The X-over and gain controls are meant to be turned about 2 full revolutions instead of 1/2 revolution. This wasn't a real problem but did catch me quite off guard. The power mounts are standard at 8 ga with an adapter for up to 1/0 ga. I happen to us 1/0 ga and found this to be a little troublesome and silly. Finally, the screw holes and all the speaker and power mounts adjustments must be made through holes in their handle design requiring you to use a rather slender screwdriver, which you may just not have handy at all.

I feel that for the price the pro's of this unit certainly outweigh it's slight drawbacks. I have 2 NVX VCW 12's being pushed by 2 of these amps. I am very pleased with this set as the speakers can hit a wide frequency range while, be pretty loud, and be very clean at the same time. I definitely recommend this amp. The quality isn't far from Sundown or Memphis but the price sure is!

Small amp...huge power!

This amp is tiny, has big power wire terminals, and one ohm mono stable, producing well over 1200 rms all the time.
Doesn't even get hot. NVX is clean and a great value, very low price for big power. Amp is all metal, that speaks for itself regarding quality.
Ask for Wes at sonic electronix for any car audio needs, he's amazing

Powerful, Affordable, High Quality Amplifier

Great amp.. Small footprint. I have it pushing two NVX VSW104s and it is more than enough. TONS of power. I actually have the gain at less than 50%. The bass knob doesn't function like it should, so I installed a LC-1 and it's perfect! No complaints here. Tons of power and never runs hot. Actually pushes around 1500 watts if turned all the way up.

Very Happy so Far

I purchased the JAD800.4 along with a JAD1200.1 to power my Infinity Kappa speakers and MB Quart subs. My first choice was the Infinity Kappa Five amp, but I had problems with two of them and was given a store credit. Second time around I decided to go with two amps (4/1channel) hoping for better performance / reliability.
I read a lot of mixed reviews on Class D amplifiers. Many people think that A/B has better sound quality, while others prefer the small footprint, high power / low heat output of Class D. Being an engineer I reviewed the specs and was very impressed with the signal to noise as well as the THD compared to Class A/B.
NVX is a relatively new brand so I turned to Google and found several good reviews. I was looking at the Polk amps and NVX seems to be very similar, with the controls panels and specs being almost identical (and NVX was in stock).
Out of the box the amps had a solid feel and clean look. They have a soft-start feature that powers them up a few seconds after they get power. This gives you time to start your engine without drawing any current. Very nice.
The sound quality is excellent - better than other A/B amps I had in the past. More than enough power - I haven't even cranked them all the way up yet and don't think I'll ever have to.
I have a second MB Quart 10 RLP on back order because with one sub I was getting distortion before I could feel the bass. It turns out that the Infinity Kappa Five amp was the weak link. The JAD 1200.1 pushes one sub very well.
The only negative I have to say about these amps is that the adjustment dials take a philips screwdriver, and they do not have an arrow or line showing you what it is set to. This made it a little inconvenient to tweak the crossover points.

Great buy

The NVX 1200.1 does rated or above I have it running 2 sundown SA 8 d4 at 1ohm and it gives them all they want with plenty of head space. The amp gets warm but haven't had it shut down yet and I play it hard. I also have a NVX 800.4 running my highs and it also has very clean sound and so much more power than I'm using I would suggest these amps to anyone not wanting to spend alot but have good clean power.

Very good amp for the money

I have had this amp now for 6 months and it is an extremely clean and powerful amp. I have owned amps that I've paid double the price for, that were no where near the quality of this amp. Does not get very hot and hits my 12" Cerwin Vega Hard and Clean. Only issue is the connectors to the speaker are a little difficult to access.
