Powerful and Reliable

I recently started running 2 IX12-D2 in a sealed enclosure and was very impressed with the output from this little amp. Pushing these 2 12's very well. Then I realized I put all the voice coils parallel. That's a 1/2 ohm load! This amp has survived the punishment I've been dishing out without a problem. Although probably not recommended, it shows that these amps are built to withstand even the worst knucklehead's mistake. I highly recommend this amp for anyone looking a great amp for a very tiny space.

Thanks for this lil beast. Skar Audio

Got this amp with a pair of ix 8' sounds amazing. Very satisfied customer really recommend skar to anyone.

Perfect amp, perfect service!

Everything about my Skar experience has been perfect, from the first email I sent asking about this amp to the quickness that I received the equipment after ordering it. Pit this little amp on a Skar VD-8 and I couldn't be more impressed! The gain isn't even half way up and this setup shakes the windshield wipers on my 2014 Equinox! I'm Skared for life!! Thank you so much for everything!!

Love this little beast

I bought this to pair with 2 IX 10 dual 4’s in my crew cab gmc under the rear seat. The compact size is perfect and it has the ability to over drive those 10’s. Sounds great and for a budget build in this truck I couldn’t be more pleased. Will update once this has some time on it.

Love this little amp

It's a real small space behind the back seat of my 4 door Nissan Frontier, and even then I only want to use half the space. I hooked this amp to a 6.5" sub in a custom box, and it's perfect! This weekend a friend rode with me and when the bass hit he snapped his head around to look for the sub, and he was like "where are you hiding it???" Look at the size, 7.9 x 4.6 x 1.7 inches. It's palm sized. I'm not trying to win any bass contests, just enjoy the ride, but I'm honestly blown away by the performance of this mini beast.
