This amp power is rated like the HULK, pushing 4 12's Kicker Comps in a customized box in my extended cab, excellent power and driving my subs hard, rattling all the windows. I have had no problems.

I have this amp on a 12" Alpine Type R and it pushes that sub perfectly with no distortion whatsoever. I drive 40 minutes to work and slam the entire way and this amp never gets hot. Definately the best amp I've ever owned

This is the best amp in the world...This amp produces real rms power with clean clean clean deep bass...Well worth the money....I have owned two of the old 500/1 slash series and wow...Now i have the new 1v2....I love it...except onlinecarstereo took my serial number off of my box and amp and the allen head screws for the subwoofer connectors strip very easily so dont tighten them down too hard....I hope they didnt sell me a fake...ugh...other than that it provides alot of clean power....If you want a amazing quality system with loud and clean deep base buy one of these amps and two kicker cvr twelves...Its a perfect match.. i swear....unless you wanna proffesional system with jl w7s and 1000 1v2 a capaciter lots of dynamat and about 2500 dollars...but for my budget pounding system you can hear me from a few blocks away for about 600 to 800 dollars......

I have this amp running my JL 10W6v2 single sub in a sealed enclosure I built to JL specs. I have the amp mounted below a false cargo floor I made in my 05 grand Cherokee. I set the gain using a volt meter like JL recommends and its set all the way down, and pushes alot of power. I feel this amp stands above most other amps as it does actually put out the power its rated for, and can put out way more power if needed. The amp has never shut down or overheated all last summer being in a confined space with driving 3+ hours with the system turned up full volume. Having this amp over a year now, I feel it will last many more years and worth the money.

had this amp using 2 12"w3v3's, it was amazing, i recently bought 2 12" type r's and was little unsure if it could push them. Its nearly twice as loud. I would put this amp up to anyones non-JL 1000 watt amps!

the r.i.p.s makes all the difference when paired with the bass control this amp gives you. almost no system will push an amp to its full potential due to lower than 14.4v to the amp. this amp doesnt need that so the 500w is the real thing, makes my 12w6v2 sound great, if you want a jl sub make sure you have money for this amp as well. jl subs need the clean power that this delivers

Got this bad-boy pushing 2 10W1v2s in a standard cab Sierra. It doesn't miss a beat and will play undistorted at any volume. I'm just hoping it doesn't shake my doors off!

Best Amp out there sure its a little pricy but its JL and its def worth the money and eventho it says 500 watts rms i personally think its a lil more cuz i got it pushing 2 jl 12"w3v3's and it puts way too much power to them but overall a damn good amp

I have this amp and a JL 12w6v2, and the combination is insane in my truck! I used to have a nice Alpine amp with the same rms rating and it didn't sound half as good or was half as loud. I've never notice with other amps the difference in quality when you crank it up until I got this one. This is the best amp you can buy and it will make any sub sound a lot better. Plus OCS has it for a steal.

Great amp . Very clean hard hitting bass. Performs better than my old Rockfords t10001bd . Most places are charging over a dollar a watt for JL slash amps and i see why . OCS , great deal , don't hesitate , snatch it .

Very nice amp. I have this powering my JL 10w7 in my tahoe and it is simply amazing. The power coming from it is very clean and is always consistent. I would reccomend that you buy the bass knob to get your "custom" listening preference.
