1200 watts for $56.99! - To good to be true? Cheap amp tested: SMD AD-1 Amplifier Dyno


Recommended Posts

~ 200w for $57. That's ~ $0.29/watt clean. Hmm... even though the ratings are inflated, it's still cheaper dollar per watt than a lot of amps I can think of.

Just playing devil's advocate.

i dunno bro - that is the sale price. Who know's what the MSRP on it is. My RF T2500.1bd is $1599 but i think most people can find them for about $1100 (or cheaper) online. They are all in the 3300 watt range which would put them @ .33 cents a watt or less depending where you got it. Ill take the RF, thanks. LOL :D

Lol that was weird, I tried replying to the topic but it must have been trying to reply to the old one - the one that Diddnt exist anymore- becauSe it wouldnt let me. Wild

But anyway, dang, that's so low, does the ad-1 also measure the "peak" power? Not just rms?

just RMS. Not interested in peak.

I with you. It's not just about dollar per watt. I'm more interested in durability.

Hmm... my amp clamps ~ 10k and costs $2k. 20 cents a watt. That's a bargain! Lol
