Origanally purchased with a PYLE BluewaVe 10" DVC Sub. After hook up it never sounded right. I changed the door speakers, replaced the head unit, swapped to a Audiobahn sub... OK, if your looking for a real review here it is.
If your looking to use this as a sub amp, your gonna be disapointed. It just cant give a nice full, rich, round, natural sounding bass. What it can't do is push a sub down to 40Hz, and in with the low filter switched on it muffles the sound at the woofer. This is awfully bad because you'll push the amp so hard you will pop speakers.
Boss gives Max Power ratings instead of RMS Loads. I checked power output. Bridged @ 4 Ohms your Amp is putting a little more then 85 clean watts. This is your RMS load. @2 Ohms which is how I have mine set up its pushing 130 clean Watts
Tip: When wiring your subs each channel will see exactly what you wire, 2,4,or 8 Ohms. When bridging you double the Ohmed resistance. i.e. a 4 Ohm load split between 2 channels shows a 2 Ohm load to the amplifier. This is a neat trick if your amp is 1 Ohm stable. THIS AMP IS NOT 1 Ohm STABLE. Wiring 2 subwoofers in Paralel will destroy the subs. 4 and 4 = 2 split across 2 channels =1. Wire in series, 4 + 4 = 8 split across 2 = 4.
So I am buying a new sub amp and will set this up to drive the door speakers, so it's not a total waist. just not what i was hoping for...
