I am using the T1000-4AD to power two front and two rear 6.5" 4O speakers. As mentioned in other reviews, the amp tends to heat up (zero problems with amp trunk mounted and I live in Florida) so make sure to keep a minimum of 1" of space around the amp for passive cooling. This amp has plenty of power and rock solid performance.
Pros: tons of power high performance differential balanced inputs reliable

Crystal clear with plenty of power this thing will keep up with lots of bass if your looking to hang with your sub set up I'm running one and the gain is all the way down.. I have two bd 2500 pushing two t213 in a blowthrough 4th order and my truck feels like it's going to blow up when I play in the 30s but this amp keeps up with the highs I'm not done with my front sound stage yet but I got the power to add as many mids and highs as I want with this beast! Focal comp in front and punch 8 in back door im thinking of glassine the doors with some more of the punch pa speakers just to keep up SPL with my lows.
Pros: 4 ,2 or 1 ohm it puts out the same power so you can load it down with tons of speakers
Cons: Wish the offered a six Chanel amp at the moment I'm running my old eclipse ( which was an awesome amp had for like 10 years now ) for my highs and Rf for my mids and low woofers I have a pioneer with 8 ch preout for my head unint so I run it's active cross over

I have 2 sets of JBL GTI 660 components in my car, and for anyone who is familiar with this set you know that they can handle tons of power. Each set is rated at 150 w/ch RMS @ 4 ohms & can handle much more. After searching several forums, I realized that to make these speakers really sing that they need to be fed around 200-250 watts per channel. Some people feed them even more than that! So after speaking with Crutchfield support, they highly suggested the Rockford T1000-4AD. This amp is rated at 250 w/ch but when I received it the birth sheet said 339 w/ch which is totally awesome!! This is also a hybrid class AD amp which helps with the overall fidelity as well as the power efficiency of the amp. After installing everything, I used a multimeter to set the amp gains so that it fed right about 225 watts per channel. I advise everyone to look into this as this is a way better method than setting the gains by ear. I also advise you to make sure you purchase an amp with MORE than the RMS rated wattage of the speakers you are powering. That way you can dial the gains down to exactly where you want them to be and it will put less strain on the amp itself since it won't be maxing out the amps power. In conclusion, this amp was exactly what these speakers needed. The extra wattage made a world of difference in not only the loudness but the overall SQ of the speakers. It is def on the expensive side, but if you have speakers similar to the JBLs then this is a great way to go!
Pros: Accord. to birthsheet total RMS wattage is WAY more than what you pay for; is a class AD amp which combines the benefits of SQ and power efficiency so it's not hard on your elec system; stays fairly cool, small footprint for what it is; sleek look; the terminals for all the wires are inside of the amp which makes installation much easier and neater; is bridgeable so you can use the front 2 ch for components and rear 2 ch for subs, or use it as strictly a sub amp and bridge front and rear chs.
Cons: No onboard fuse so you need to put an additional 150 amp fuse outside the amp to wherever its going; def a bit on the expensive side (but so worth it IMHO); the plastic/acrylic finish is nice but scratches easily.

I purchased two T1000-4 ad one to run my 4 tower speakers at 4 ohm and the other one to run my 8 components inside the boat at 2 ohm and I purchased T1500-1bd for my two L7 subs. Amps are really good they put out a lot of clean power at high volume volume. Just make sure you have your amp gains set right. I would recomand either of these amps to anyone. I am JL audio FAN and I always used JL Amps. Only reason I did not use them this time was because my tower speakers needed 200w RMS. Hands down this is an awesome amp and if I do another boat down the road Ill use these amps again. I play music with these amps sometimes 8 HRS straight at 90% volume no problems what's so ever. Keep in MIND I do live in PHOENIX where out side temps reach 110+ and amps are stored where air and water cant get to unless I have fan running. I plan to install small fans to keep them cool. but these last 4 weekends I been using them without fans * hrs straight and AMPs did not clip or over heat. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo YES THEY ARE BAD Boys GET THEM u will be happy with them.
Pros: REALLY GOOD AMP, CLEAN POWER, They put out more than 250RMS my Sheet Said 290wRMS at 4 ohm
Cons: I wish amp was little bit smaller because its 15 inches long, Gain Adj are on the side I wish they were facing up it would be easier to adj -- and last thing is HEAT these amps do run HOT so don't freak out. if you touch it and its hot. They run Hotter than new JL Audio AMPS But they do put out TWICE the amount POWER :)
