Always loved kenwood amps they just sound better great for audiophiles not so much for blowing your windows out. I was hooking this amp to a preloaded kicker box (2 ohm 1 speaker input) didn't feel comfortable bridging it as I think that would make it 1 ohm which this amp is not built for so I tried wiring normally both amp outputs to the one speaker box input it didn't sound right so I thought I must've cris crossed the wires so I reversed them still sounded bad so I unhooked one speaker wire from the amp (but not the subs) was driving when amp cut out figured it overheated and would come back on in a few. Soon I smelled burning electronics so I pulled over and the amp was HOTTTTTT so I pulled the power wire so the short would stop then looked for the issue the speaker wire I forgot to detach from the box was on the cars ground. I covered the wire and started pricing new amps but didn't really want a new one because I liked this one. I was sad because it clearly burnt up in the short but decided to make absolutely sure it didn't work before I trashed it so I hooked it back up and sounded just the way it did before!! It's still in my car to this day working like new. I will now always buy kenwood amps (not a fan of their door speakers though) for the rest of my life (if I ever even need to with this bad boy around! I love it and would rate 100000 stars if I could.
