Worth the extra money

Excellent design and sound quality. There are other amps that are way cheaper, but given the size and sound quality, it's worth the extra money.

Pros: Size, sound quality, ease of installation

Cons: Price but you get what you pay for.

This amp is super strong and does very well with clarity and heat

Pros: slim design and sleek wiring connection locations

Cons: Mounting screw hose need to be tubed rather than open on the inside. While mounting the screws can be stuck within the frame

I want to give this three stars, but I bet the issue I had would be mostly fixed by **the right* professional installer that truly knows how 2 properly set-up & tune amps. I've checked 4 amps out against this 1 (5 total). The Alpine MRV-M500 & S-A60M, JL Audio XD600/1v2 & Infinity Kappy One 6. These were listened 2 using a (AMAZING) prefab box from JL Audio (the HO110-W6v3) I I highly recommend that product. It was worth every penny! This Kenwood packs major punch(!!!) and made my 10" W6 sound like a 15" sub! It plaid SO MUCH deeper with this amp than it played with ANY other of the four distinctly different amps!!! I mean that ONE 10" sub pressurized my cabin so much more with this amp than it did with any of the other amp. Why give it four (or really almost 3) stars? It made my normally clean sounding 10" sub sound like a 15".... in the bad ways too. It sounded super muddy and dirty. No where near as clean as it sounded with most of the others, especially the JL XD600 or Infinity Kappa One 6. that would get it 4 starts with the DEEP bass coming from this thing.... ...it goes down to 3 stars for this reason: On VERY bass heavy songs I heard lots of distortion out of this amp that I KNOW was not coming from my tank of a sub... even with the volume turned down! Meaning if the input was too strong and bass heavy from the track this amps input stage seemed to strain and not make adjustments.

Pros: DEEP BASS. This will make any sub play WAY deeper than you've heard it play with any other amp. I know cuz I tried it against for others

Cons: What it give you in deep bass it takes way in CLEAN sound. It sounded the sloppiest of all the subs, AND it distorted (no matter the volume) with super bass heavy songs.

Excellent product and price. Went well with the XR400-4

Pros: Small enough to fit about anywhere.

Cons: Screws that hold the wires in are cheap and strip out easily.

Small enough to fit under the center console of my Wrangler. Packs a punch. Wiring instructions could be better for a rookie installer.

Pros:

Cons:
