Year / Model Reviewed:
1998 Sony Xplod 1000 Watt 2/1 Channel

Strengths:
hits really hard when speakers set to 2/1 ohms

Weaknesses:
gets hot but with a fan mod it will stay cool

Summary:
had this amp for many years and had to rebuild it twice, even though i did it still hits harder then ever. with 2 kicker compvr 12", it makes my vehicle sound awesome and it has blown 2 sealed boxes without going past volume 8.

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 XM-2165GTX

Strengths:
Great price, awsome power

Weaknesses:
none

Summary:
This amplifier puts alot of power to the subs. I have two MTX 15" 6000 series subs and they sound great. I would highly recomend this amp to anyone. I agree with every one else it does get hot, but i have never had any problems.

Review 3 of 6

Price Paid:  $125.00 from from friend who paid

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 sony 1000 watt

Strengths:
Looks cool, has enough power for most people,great for the price

Weaknesses:
gets really hot when running high rms subs, almost hot enough to burn your hand.

Summary:
I have had this amp for about 2 months and it has been great to me. i have it on 2 12" Logic SoundLab subs rated at 1000rms 2000max and they really pound. i have just upgraded to a kicker zr600 due to the fact that my subs could take alot more and that my sister wanted my amp. now the sony isnt no Kicker but for 125$ it is a great deal.

Legacy,Pyle,JBL,Alpine,Kicker-> (the best so far)

Strengths:
Everything

Weaknesses:
none

Summary:
144.8dbs! Using only 1 of these amps for my setup. Head unit is a Panasonic CQ-DFX302U cdplayer, Audio Control Epicenter, Audio Control EQL Concert Series, Tsunami 4G. wiring, 150A-anl fuse, Lighting Audio 1F. cap, Sony XM2165GTX Amp, and then 2 12" JLAudio W3v2 8ohm subs in a 1.5 cubic ft./per sealed box in a 2001 VW Jetta. First place in local comp. This amp never heats up even after 4hrs of cruising at South Padre Island Spring Break '04. I really recommend this amp to anyone on a budget. I love it!
