Review 1 of 6

Price Paid:  $15.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2002 sub amp

Strengths:
very durable

Weaknesses:
stupid previous owner

Summary:
i got mine off ebay for about $15 untested
the rca ports wer broke off the board
replaced with threaded mounted and works like a champ
i added a mini preamp and it boosted the power a bit
had to also cut off the old ground bolt that was stripped
using 0G ground and power wires
and 12G wire to the drivers full copper
added a inline choke and cap to drop the frequency sum and ran 2 15 pyle drivers at 2OHMS in a dule banpass cab, also tryed with one sub reversed in the same box with a vent
and agen with passive resonator
this boy is a monster if you set everything up right
used in my barn for testing and the sheet metal was tearing off the walls
add sum surface bass shakers and itll add about 105 DB with a sheet of alumanim about 1/2" thick and 3 feet diamiter suspended
i tryed a number of amps and this one performes like a 1500 watt amp

Review 2 of 6

Price Paid:  $40.00 from Ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 KAC-819

Strengths:
Good power Ease of hook up Generates great sounding bass Compact

Weaknesses:
None at this point

Summary:
I purchased this product off ebay for a very good price condisering that it retails for nearly 6 times more. I was a bit unsure about having the single channel, however when I connected it to my 10" Rockford Fosgate punch sub, I was blown away by the power in it. I could really feel the bass. I used 8ga power wire to run from the battery to the trunk, and I haven't had any problems at this point. I recommend this amp to anyone who wants to feel the bass and ease of use.
