I purchased this amp to push 2 evl6.5. I am super impressed now how much power im.getting from such small components. I also have the sk 400x4 amp hooked to my stock speakers in my scion iq. Had a box built to skar's specs for the subs. Had another friend take it a different route and built it into the floor so my tiny car wouldnt really lose any space.
Let me start out saying I’ve used the skar rp 1500.1,& the rp 1200.1, & I run an old skool phoenix gold 500.4 amp on my morel made phoenix gold ti elite comp set for sound quality up front- the amp box is smaller than my 500.4 amp, and this sk-m500.1 d fits in my hand and is smaller than my elite passive xover. Upon using my o-scope,& my subs are wired at 1.3ohms, for gain setting,& Im sending 8vts to this amp, this amp does not
Clip till 27vts ac, so mine is putting out 640-650 watts and sounds great. I wish the power inputs were 4gauge, but for size I understand its 8 gauge. DONT HESITATE TO BUY THIS AMP! Its a STEAL, its accurate, clean output on my subs. The owners manual says it can handle 8volts input ,& I use a line driver to deliver it. As per the norm., great job skar, affordability,& quality!( I wish it did have bass boost, for just a little more “ umph”, but I can do that with my dsp:) Im not leaving my ground like this, it was for quick instal purposes. I will be shorting it,& adding the braid along w/heat shrink
I just bought a new car and wanted a single sub for a little more kick. Almost went another way (a Memphis setup) until a friend told me to check out Skar and promised that I'd get a much better quality product, better sound, and better price. Called Skar the next day, found out they are based in Tampa (as I am), and was at their main office that afternoon. The customer service was PHENOMENAL and they treated me like I was their biggest customer, only I felt more like family than a paying customer. They listened and understood my so I got the best BOOM for my buck. Picked up this amp and a IVX-V2 12" for about $200 and it sounds great!!!!! At the installation, the techs at Best Buy told me they were picking up a distortion in the signal (due to having a factory head unit) so I called Skar and they told me turn the gain up and jam!!! They made sure I was satisfied and got exactly what I wanted and more!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND going with Skar whether you want to win a competition, a little more bump, or just want a better sound. Definitely a lifelong customer and already have a couple of friends who are getting their stuff from them too!!!
Thank you. This little guy really performed better than I was expecting. I knew it was going to be small but I was still amazed at the small size and big power.
Bought this for my son for Christmas. Pushing a couple of IX-8's and I'm impressed. It doesn't rattle your fillings out, but it was loud enough for my b*tch a$$ neighbor to call the cops on us while testing it out. I didn't know if it was going to be enough, honestly, but after that, I'm sold!
