This amp is a little beast to say the least. I like the variable bass control that comes with it as I listen to different kinds of music. It pairs with my Fosgate P3 perfectly.
If you’re in the market for a nice amp don’t even hesitate to get this one. It’ll blow you away!
05/29/16 Update. Still going strong after a year of powering the CVR-15, Slightly disappointed with having to say it’s a 500 watter. Any other old timers like me this is equal to the punch 75, autotek 90mxi or hifonics thor which all were only rated for less than 100 watts but could out power this new school stuff.
Year 2 of still going strong with no hint of ever quitting. Built a better more efficientbox for the Kicker CVR-15 that is 4cu ft and port tuned to 22hz. The sub and this amp especially with the new box are a perfect match.
The Prime 300/4 is still going strong as well these are really decent reliable amplifiers.
Update: Bought this 1 year and 9 months ago amp still hitting hard hooked up to 2 10″ kickers lowered at 2ohms I recommend it it’s small but powerful little beast.
Update Jan 2018: Amp still chugging, replaced the sub with a Kicker CompRT 12 and it pushes that sub effortlessly as well. Have not set gain over half on either sub.

Decided to install a stereo in my gfs car for her bday. Paired this with a American Bass XR-10D4 in a bbox e10sv ported enclosure.
As far as ratings go the sub is clearly being underpowered but damn the thing hits hard and it’s more than enough for her. The bass remote does leave a lot to be desired though. I used to install professionally and have tuned more amps than I can count, but this knob is touchy with very limited range. In about 1/8th the range of turn it goes from no bass to max…
Could be an isolated issue and its just a defective part that I received. Not a huge deal as she doesn’t play with it much.
