I love BOSS audio brand. This amp is small in size but puts out every bit of 600 watts a side. Do not let this amp fool you, it sounds great and it will push anything you ask it to.
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.
So far so good. Anything I buy from Walmart is good and if it isn't walmart will make it right. I buy a lot from them. The amp plays good and has a good sound.
Considering the price i was expecting an okay amp for starters; however its a great amp,easy to install and has plenty of power :-) make sure to buy the 8 gauge(Boss)wires they recommend for this amp.
