This is one fine amp. Doesnt have all the bells and whistles that the typical stereo doesnt need. It does provide nice clean power through out, and is a perfect match (thanking the guys at crutchfield) for my JL and kicker speakers. The foot print is fairly small, and is just under 12 inches in length, so it should fit many applications. Dinged it one star because the speaker level inputs are wimpy 20 gauge wire Whats the point of laying nice 16 or 14 gauge speaker wire only to have it step it way down? Print is way small on the instructions for the jst plug connections. This wont be a problem if you use line level inputs. Gain is set to minimum, theres a few 'tube videos on how to set it. 60watts at 4 ohm speakers should yield you 15.49 volts AC. Be sure to look into this set up, because it will make a difference..substantial difference in the way the amp performs
Pros: small, good power for the size.
Cons: jst connector wiring way too small for speaker level inputs

The form factor was perfect. The amp fit perfectly underneath my drivers seat. After I hooked it up and tested the amp, it drove my for kicker door speakers perfectly. I would definitely buy again.
