Great little amp! Love it so far. Have not experienced the over heating issues that others have. Using the amp to power a single Skar Vd12d2 wired at 1ohm using 4 gauge wiring with 4-8gauge adapters for power and ground. The amp was much smaller than my previous amp and fit in my factory amp rack with plenty of room around it. Built a custom sealed fiberglass slim box for my wagon to house the 12” shallow mount Skar VD12 and together the little thing slams!
Impressive sound and power coming from such a small package! I have been converted to a Skar customer for life I think! You will not be let down with this amp!
Day 1 after my install. I spent 10 hours installing amp because I wanted a clean wire run and professionalism. Well worth every penny. Added 2 of the d2 8” Skar sub woofers to my already good sounding stock system. I haven’t even made an enclosure yet. I just wanted some more deeper bass. Not to rattle doors off the car but to enjoy the full depth of bass without distortion. This basic setup is in one word “WOW!” There’s no starvation of deep low bass hitting low 42hz without any popping on a small piece of plywood. With my soon enclosure build I’ll have to tone it down. If I want my rear trunk to fall into pieces it definitely would with these little monsters. Thank you Skar for the quality and performance for small change in my wallet. Sounds like at least over $1,200 worth of quality for only $320. Wow!!!!
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
