Fantastic value, I simply couldn't find this much amp for the price with any other brand. I did some research before buying and Skar is definitely in the top tier of budget amps. I've used Audiopipe and other amps in that class and have had good luck with them, so I was pretty confident the Skar wouldn't disappoint. I took a gamble on a refurb model, unit works solid, no issues at all and hope it stays that way!
Impressed with the weight and size of this thing-- it seems to be a heavy, well built amp. I've seen inside (amp guts) photos on the web and they don't seem to skimp on quality-- these have been reliably verified to output rated power or more time and time again. The amp is bigger than I thought it would be judging from the photos (probably not a bad thing), but I'd still consider it a small form factor for the 2k it outputs.
Sadly I don't have enough sub to run the thing at anywhere near it's max rated power without smoking them [the subs]; I'm probably pushing about 700 watts @ 3 ohm mono load between the two subs that I have. At 3 ohms I can tell it puts out substantially more power than the Audiopipe APMI-1500 it replaced. Unit stays nice and cool as it should, given it's not being hammered on. Sound quality is superb, unit really thumps when you want it to. I have no qualms that it will perform adequately when the time comes to replace the subs with something that can handle all the power.Read full review
