Small powerhouse

This amp is the best amp you will find for this price. Really small putting out great power,never shuts down ,never overheats,just pounds for hours

Great Small Amp

This amp packs some power. I have it matched to a high performance 10" sub, and it makes it sound better than when I had two mid-level 12's in my truck.

The amp fits easily under my front seat and has never had any overheating problems.

Recommend!

Good amp

I initially purchased this amp to push one JLW610 but decided to use it on two MTX 7510-44 subwoofers. The one amp alone is strong enough to push the one JL but not strong enough to push both MTX woofers. I purchased another amp to satisfy the RMS power needed to push the MTX woofers properly. The amp is not one ohm stable so it was a must for me to purchase the additional amp.

The Amps stays cool and does not overheat. I had them mounted upside down for presentation and because I am now mounting three amps and two caps.

Overall the amps are really good. I would recommend this product.

Booooming

I have the MTX 500.1 running a MTX Thunder 7500 speaker ( I have had it stored for a while) and its a 400 watt speaker and this amplifier runs it most excellently. Great value for the money I spent on it.

Great AMP!!!

I have this amp running two JL Audio 10TW3-D4 subwoofers in my Chevy Crew cab with custom built box and couldn't be happier with the power and clarity of the bass. It's over the amount recommended for the subs but being responsible and they sound great!!

Strong Amp, Excellent Customer Service.

This little amp has the juice to deliver some serious bass notes. I did have an issue where I took it out of one car and installed in my truck and it went into protect mode. MTX replaced it no questions asked after I had it for almost 2 years.
