Works very well.... sounds amazing...!! Will be buying more Skar Audio Product...!!!
I finally got around to installing this amp (6months after I received it....) I know, what kind of mobile audiophile tortures themself in this manner? I had to wait until I completed my secondary battery addition in my 2008 Chevy Tahoe LTZ. I had that crappy Blose (intentional spelling) system but I replaced my door speakers with Infinity Reference 6.5" components in the front doors (I drilled holes for the new tweeters instead of installing them in the factory A pillar location......those are still operating but are totally overtaken because, well....Blose!). The rear doors got the Infinity Reference 6.5" Coaxials. All 4 passenger doors occupy channels 1 thru 4 on the SK-M9005D. Channel 5 belongs to a single 12" Boston Pro Series subwoofer. It's a dual voice coil sub so I'm running it in parallel to optimize the 2 ohm power output. I have a 12.1" Android head unit that replaced the crappy factory boat anchor. I've had 2 years of suffering listening to my music channelled through the Blose amplification. When I finally heard sound coming through the 9005D I couldn't wait to run it through it's paces. With just a meager preliminary tune on the sound settings I jumped right in. I was a car stereo competitor in years past (MANY years past!) and I have a few Go To songs to pass through the tiny new addition to the #HauteHoe (she doesn't have a name, she has a Hashtag). First up is always Money For Nothing by Men At Work. This is an industry standard. And the mighty mite delivered acceptable sonic responses. That song is not a favorite of mine, although I do sing along every time I hear it....word for word even, so off to song #2. A personal fave for just this task. Swing Out Sister with Circulate. The voice does it alone but, the French horns! Wait for them. You'll be glad you did. I cranded up the volume to where I expected to hear some crackling a shrieking. But to no avail, that little amp kept chugging along. With a smile on my face I didn't even need to play the third song........but I did anyway because it's just a great, groovy, jazzy, bassy, tickle your eardrums jam by Pieces Of A Dream called We've Already Said Goodbye. By now I was singing along (albeit terribly off key!), praising The Little Amp That Could. And my laser thermometer never registered a temperature on the amp above 93 degrees. About 18 minutes of torture testing and not a single step was missed or tripped. Yes indeed, my #HauteHoe and I are back to windows down, volume up, lowered stances and lifted spirits. Good job Skar Audio.
Got all my highs and 6.5 subwoofer to cover me mids powered by a 5 channel amp. So far its sounds good. Cant wait until my next phase. Adding a 18" sub to top off the system im my suburban.
My only complaint is how you wire up the speakers. But I fear that is the price you pay for such a bad ass little amp. Besides that I’m excited to have everything installed now and soon my little EVL6.5 will come alive. Ignore my power wire job. Forgot to put the inline fuse where it can be hidden.
