The amplifier 400 watts 4 channels is nice for a small amplification
The amplifier 400 watts 4 channels is nice for a small amplification, you know if you are looking just for to change your regular series sound, it’s perfect. But I recommended to use speakers no more than 50 rms watts if you want a clear sound and no a flip. I tried the 400 watts amplifier for my wife and she is happy with this. But for me I took the 1600 watts 4 channels amplifier, with 100 rms watts speakers and this combination was really perfect, the amplifier is working perfectly, the sound is great, some people waiting bad reviews about this but I think they are using the amplifier incorrectly with the wrong rms watts speakers, I always recommend to use one amplifier 50 % more rms watts that your speakers. Example. If your speakers are 100 rms watts, you must to use an amplifier 150 watts rms by channel.
Dead on Arrival but Amazon sent a replacement
This amp was defective on arrival and Amazon will not accept a return on this item (read the update) even though it is within 30 days and I bought it directly from amazon, not a third party vendor. I knew it was a cheap amp, but figured what the heck, if it does not work I can just send it back and get one that does… But I was wrong. I bought a head unit, speakers, and this amp, all from amazon, to replace the stereo in my airstream. everything arrived and looked good, and within three days I pulled all the old stuff out, built new speaker housings, and got all the new stuff put in. only two of the 4 channels work. I can swap speaker wires and confirm that all 4 speakers work, and I can swap RCA to confirm that I have signal coming out of four channels from the head unit, but the right side of the boss has no output. Don’t buy this amp, or at least not on amazon, it is not worth the risk.Update: After sending an email to Amazon’s customer service department they apologized and said that sometimes returns cannot be processed based on the value of the item and shipping cost, but they already had a new one in the mail to me and I could just keep the old one. I am glad Amazon took care of it. The channel that did work sounded great for the price, so I am looking forward to the amp working in the system.
Some things are too good to be true… This almost burned my car down
I bought this amplifier to replace the aftermarket unit in my 2011 Honda CR-Z, I found this unit to be an exact match for the kicker speakers I had installed. This wasn’t my first time wiring a sound system in a car. I saw that the reviews for this unit were mostly positive and the price seemed excellent so I went ahead and bought it, got it wired up properly and it WORKED!!! I was very happy, the sound quality was excellent and the install went smoothly. Fast forward 9 months. I’m driving to pickup lunch with a co-worker and soon after pulling out of my parking space I smell it. Electrical smoke. Soon after this a ton of smoke starts pouring out from under the passenger seat (where the amp was). I quickly turned the car off and popped the hood, and pull the fuse thinking that something must be shorting. I removed the passenger seat and was shocked to find that not a single connection had shorted and that not ONE fuse had blown. There are no signs of scorching or burning on the underside of my seat or the outside of the unit. This leads me to believe that something went critically wrong inside this unit and that the system had no sort of protection inside against this. Moral of the story here is if it looks too good to be true, It probably is. I sincerely hope that the manufacturer reaches out to me to try and help come to some sort of an agreement or replacement.
Excellent amp for Subwoofers
I have been using this amp for around two years now and I love it! I recommend it to all of my friends for their car sub setups and most of the are using it now too. I have used this in my Dodge Ram with two 10″ kickers (boost turned town for 10’s) and it had excellent sound quality. It also fit nicely under the center console (2003 model). I now use it for two 12″ Pioneers in the back of my 4runner and it sounds even better! I used the mounts preinstalled on the amp and have it mounted to the side of my sub box. It has a clean look to it and the backlit boss logo looks slick. (SIDE NOTE: I have had to since cover up the backlit logo because it was reflecting very brightly at night in my rear window. This is not a reflection of boss or the amp quality, just something to keep in mind when installing.)The instillation was very simple, just using the screws to tighten down on the cables. I highly recommend getting the boss wiring kit along with this. It has all of the necessary cables for setup and they are great quality. I do wish the wires came with the amp, but it’s not a huge deal as long as you remember to order cables when you order the amp.Pros: – Great Sound Quality – Manual Adjustment of frequencies, bass boost, and power – Has never overheated – Cooling fan is silent – Mounts nicely and cleanly – Powers two 12″ with no struggleCons: – Does not include cables – Does not include screws for mounting – Remote adjustment knob does not seem to work (Not really a big deal to me though)
Sounds terrible unless you like distortion on top of your music.
Do yourself a favor and avoid the temptation of trying to get a good amp for a cheap price. There are many reviews on here that say it is good and many that say it is bad so I thought I would give it a shot. I may as well have installed the cardboard box that this thing came in as it would have probably sounded better. Any gains in power to your speakers are just distortion. Yes it will be just a tiny bit louder but will sound like crap. This item is not eligible for return so once you get it you are stuck with a worthless black box. Put your money towards something a little better and avoid this thing!
