I didn't figure I would be having to do this bad review considering my past experiences with boss amps but none the less here I am. OK for starters this amp does not push anywhere close to 3k watts, big surprise right? Typically you can take the peak wattage and subtract 2/3's to 1/2 and that will be your rms wattage. So in this case peak wattage is 3000@1ohm which means rms would fall in the 1,000-1,500 watts @ 1ohm roughly anyways. Just guessing with no actual data backing it up only years of experience with car audio I feel like the amp I received at absolute best is pushing 500-600 watts wired down to 1ohm and honestly thats being generous. I had high hopes that this amp would be as good of quality as the previous boss amp i bought nearly 10 years ago that i believe was 2,600 watts class d 1-ohm stable. That thing was an absolute monster and was bulletproof, to the point it was thrown out the back glass of a vehicle when rolled over multiple times, picked it up out of the field put it in a different vehicle and play like nothing ever happened even with some things busted here and there it still lasted up until it disappeared last year. This current amp I have on 2 older audiopipe ts-pr10gr 10's rated at 500w max each dual voice coil in a sealed box with 1.0 cu. ft. per sub which is what they call for. Now I just aquired these speakers and put them on a couple really cheap amps just to see if they functioned normally which they did alright considering what was pushing them. Picked this amp up from wally today and right out of the box i noticed the weight, it wasn't half as heavy as the previous model boss amp i had that was less wattage. None the less I hooked it all up checked my wiring before hooking battery back up and all looked good (i've done this a lot and i do mean a lot) then let the amp play for roughly an hour at no more than 30% power to sort of break it in then cranked it on up and just wasn't much there. At all. Not only that, it also started heating up before the song was over. Most people think well yea amps heat up, well true a lot of them do. This is suppose to be a class-d amp that can be run at 1-ohm stable which in all my other experiences makes it run hard while staying pretty much cool to the touch. I adjusted this and that double checked wiring etc. and still like the speakers weren't even close to being maxed out. The previous boss amp that was 2,600w also class d 1-ohm I have no doubt could have blowed these 10's out of the box but this supposed to be 3,000w wasn't even flexing them fully even wired at 1-ohm and it heats up? I've owned 8 class-d 1-ohm amps before this one of various brands boss, punch, hifonics, etc. none of which have ever under any condition gotten hot or even warm really even though they were being pushed very hard. My old boss amp ran 3 12inch subs @ 800w a piece and it wasn't even turn halfway up n never once got warm and no matter what speakers you had it on it was always real punchy hard hitting base just like all the other 1-ohm amps. This one here has no solid licks to it at all barely even vibrates my mirror. I understand this is a cheaper amp but come on i've bought amps in the pawnshop parking lot for $20 that looked like theyd been dragged down the road for a few miles that would put this amp to shame. Even at $80 this isn't worth the money. Perhaps I got a bad one of the bunch, or possibly these tens i bought have some issues, tommorrow morning i'm swapping them out for some 12's to see how they do and if its the same deal then this thing is going back. I wasn't expecting much but this wouldn't push my two polk audio 6x9's much less a couple subs. Just very very disappointed in this product compared to the previous boss amp I had that I would have put next to any high end amp out on the market, but this here i'm a little embarrassed about it.
