    Review 2 of 14

    Price Paid:  $249.00 from circuit city

    Year / Model Reviewed:
    2000 olds alero

    Strengths:
    it was underrated accuatly it pushed out 425w @4 ohms

    Weaknesses:
    the amp got hot but never cut off

    Summary:
    This amp is what's up. I had this little monster on two 12" bazooza in a custom slot ported box and it was the cleanest and loudest for it's size. But unfortunatlly someone stole it from my car and it was a tragedy because i could not replace is. How uncool is that.

    Review 3 of 14

    Price Paid:  $199.00 from Circuit Cuty

    Year / Model Reviewed:
     MTX Thunder 302

    Strengths:
    Excellent signal to noise ratio, adjustable 0- 18 db bass boost at 40hz, plenty of power in a small design. Sturdy design, I have used and abused my Thunder 302 since I got it (I think it was August 2001) and it sounds as good as the day I installed it.

    Weaknesses:
    It isn't an extremely powerful amp when hooked up to two 4 ohm speakers, I recommend this amp for bridged use or with 2 efficient subs. Also the amp being stable down to only two ohms can limit your wiring options. The amp also runs very hot, although I have never had it shut off from overheating, or for any other reason (including under the seat in a Black on Black hatch back), but as others have said it gets hot enough to literally burn you. And it certainly isn’t the flashiest looking amp, but amps are for music not looking at.

    Summary:
    Awesome, clean power in a small amp. I had this amp in my '93 Buick Regal with one 12" Thunder 8000 sub in a medium flared ported box and the entire trunk dyna-matted and it slammed amazingly hard and low. People would actually make me open the trunk because they didn't believe it was just one 12" sub. Then after almost 4 years the voice coil fried in the sub so I replaced the sub with an Infinity Kappa Perfect 12 VQ in the same 2 cubic foot flared ported box and it hits just about as hard at 40 hz and considerably harder at 75 hz. And now, just recently the amp (and Infinity sub) have been moved in to my '02 Mercedes C230 where the amp fits nicely under the passenger seat and I had to actually turn the gain and bass boost down on the amp because it was too loud for the small cabin of the hatch back. And stereo systems aren’t usually too loud for me.

    Review 5 of 14 , from Canton Ohio

    Price Paid:  $40.00 from on tha' streets

    Year / Model Reviewed:
     ?

    Strengths:
    has quite a bit of power for how small it is. it is not over rated like many cheap amps. never overheats (people that claim to have such problems are probably trying to bridge two 2 ohm subs, which draws one ohm from the amp, thus exceeding the limit of two ohms mono). two ohms stereo it can handle, and it gets hot enough to sizzle bacon, (or your hand if your dumb enough to touch it) but if you follow the specs, it will not shut off even after hours at high volume, with external temp of 90 plus, and in the trunk.

    Weaknesses:
    not one ohm stable mono, even the top of the line mtx is only two ohm stable mono. would be nice to have recieving inserts for cable connection, instead of the clamp posts

    Summary:
    I have this amp running to two audiobahn 12's running at two ohms a piece. not going to win any spl comps, but definitly enough to terrorize people without systems when they ride in the car. Beats the $hit out of my old legacy series 4 1000 watts amp. still need more so im getting a memphis 16-1000d (1100 watts RMS at 1 ohm)
