Review 1 of 4|
The 6152 is way under-rated in its available wattage. Bridged into 4 ohms, it produces 325 watts. It's a real "over-achiever" and drives my single 12" sub nicely, even though I have to turn the EQ
up quite a bit. Its internal circuits are
stout and built to last. It's S/N ratio
is excellent, and THD is almost non-existant, according to its "birth certificate." In the ten years I've used
this amplifier, it's only gone into 'protection mode' once, to allow itself to cool down a little on a hot summer day's drive. That only lasted about two or three minutes. This 6152 MTX amp will satisfy anyone who needs lots of good, distortion-free power.
The potentiometers spin much too easily--makes me wonder what's keeping them where
I last set the crossover frequency or the
EQ? Why not put 'detents' into the pots
so that a person will know that his or her
last setting will stay in place and not be
subject to vibration? Also, why not put
numbers to indicate approximately where
the pot is in terms of frequency--is my
cut-off frequency setting at 85 or is it
at 105? I can't tell because there are no
numbers on the end plates to gauge my settings by??
If a person sets his frequencies "by ear,"
by what he thinks sounds best, then this
MTX 6152 amp will do quite nicely. If a
person would like to have a general idea
of where the EQ or the crossover frequency
is being set, then it's a matter of guesswork. I'd like "actual numbers" just
like we have on highways, where anyone can
tell what the speed limit is by looking at
numbers on signs on the side of the road.
I've never liked guesswork with electronics!!
