  1. Got this amp in last week and already busted out 2 videos. Let's see how it performs..
  2. Today we take a closer look at a really interesting SQ amplifier available from China suppliers. My amp was purchased from a broker via Facebook, looks simply stunning....but how does it perform? Let's find out! Rated: 150x4 at 4 ohms (another clone rated 100x4) 280x4 at 2 ohms (clone says 130x4) Note: This is NOT the same amp as the upcoming Stereo Integrity SIQ-75.4, although it looks a lot like it.
  3. 2005 was the year of the underrated amps for Rockford Fosgate...but this one takes the cake for being the most underrated (percentage wise) of any RF amp I've ever tested... Power T3002, rated to deliver: 50 x 2 at 4 ohms 100 x 2 at 2 ohms 150 x 2 at 1 ohm 200 x 1 bridged at 4 ohms 300 x 1 bridged at 2 ohms Let's find out what it REALLY does. It's just insane....

  4. After a recent successful showing of the new Soundstream TXP1.6000D monoblock amp, I had several requests to try out the four channel version, the TXP4.3500D. In order to keep the peeps happy, I ordered the amp and let's see more. The amp is rated: 140 watts x 4 channels at 4 ohms 235 watts x 4 channels at 2 ohms 375 watts x 4 channels at 1 ohm 700 watts x 2 bridged at 2 ohms How does it perform? Watch to find out. Stick out until after the credits to see an extended segment from our friend, Dick Riculous... https://youtu.be/VPkf7PmjUZs
  5. Today we are taking a closer look at the most powerful amplifier in Kicker's current lineup (as of September 2020), the KXA2400.1. This is a 2400W amplifier that may have slipped your radar. This amp is rated to deliver: 1200W at 4 ohms 2400W at 2 ohms 2400W at 1 ohm (plus/minus 10%) The amp retails for $999 and although that may sound pricey, it's competitor the Rockford Fosgate T2500.1BDcp goes for $1599. Kicker engineers and designs their amps in house while final assembly is completed in China. These amps are a unique design and we'll find out how we
  6. Today we are going to look at the Toro Audio RX4, which is sold as a "4 channel SQ" amp. This isn't unusual except SQ usually means big money. This amp currently sells for $79 USD on Amazon and Toro Audio's website and seems like a really good deal. It's rated to deliver: 75W x 4 at 4 ohms 120W x 4 at 2 ohms 300W x 2 at 4 ohms bridged Let's take a closer look and find out if this amp is a budget gem or if it needs some work.
  7. 500 watts and 3 channels is what Corzus offers with their Z500 mini amp. This one specifically is the Z500 RCA. It's rated to deliver 125x2 plus 250x1 at 2 ohms. These are strong ratings for a $139 amp I've never heard of. Corzus is another Brazilian amp and as with Taramps, Banda, SounDigital and others, they rely on Class D chips for these mini amps. This one in particular uses (3) of the Texas Instruments TPA3116D2 chips. I won't give it away by telling you what those chips are rated, but I will say the $10 Subwoofer amp I tested a few years ago used one of these chips... Watch
  8. Banda BD250.2 is next up for testing. Based on the popularity of the Taramps DS160x2, I'd say there must be a market or at least a lot of interest in small 12V audio amplifiers. This one is rated to deliver 125x2 at 2 ohms in stereo mode or 250x1 at 4 ohms in mono configuration. It has a really cool acrylic case so you can see all of the internal goodies. Let's take a closer look, then test the amp on the Dyno, try it on speakers and a sub, then take a closer look at the internals. Make sure you watch all the way until the end as I provide some updates on the Taramps DS160x2 from a previous vi
  9. Here we have the smallest amp I've ever tested on my Amp Dyno, the Taramps DS 160x2. This $53, palm sized amp is almost laughable to think it could provide any amplification. Let's take a closer look at this mighty might, test it on the SMD Amp Dyno, try it with some speakers and subs, then open it up to see what makes this little amp work.

  10. Yes friends, already spoiling the surprise, this is the worst amp I've ever tested. The Mitzu MPA-3000RD is rated for "1600 watts", so how bad is it really? Gotta watch and see. All I can say is "Where's the Beef?" Watch on YouTube in 4K or embedded below
