A huge problem with "affordable" car audio amplifiers is misrepresentation of the true wattage. This amplifier says 1200 watts on the box. With most manufacturers, this would mean 1200 watts max "peak power" Which means nothing. When I opened the manual, saw the true wattage number. 230 watts rms x2 channels at 4ohms. I just so happen to own a DeAmore sound engineering amplifier Dynamometer, and my own car audio installation/customization shop. In other words, I'm a car audio professional who takes his job seriously. Testing this amplifier at 4 ohms, on 14.4 volts #normal operating voltage in a running vehicle# This amplifier MAKES LESS THAN 80 WATTS ON EACH CHANNEL AT 4 OHMS. AND FORGET ABOUT BRIDGING IT! IT GOES INTO PROTECT MODE WHEN YOU TRY TO! So, less than 200 total true watts for 75 bucks is what you will really get if you really want this amp.
