    the specs seem reasonably respectable

    I also appreciate the fact that they use the universal rating system (CEA2006)

    I'd like to see some more specs though...a lot more specs....since those specs that they give are pretty generic

    if you can find the full spec sheet that would be great....

    there's too much to list as to what I personally look for in an amplifier....

    for starters though:

    damping factor
    transient distortion
    THD%
    fusing (to know more about it's true power capabilities)

    stuff like that...

    a higher damping factor means that the amplifier can respond quicker to changes in music. Most amps run somewhere between 200 and 300 if they are decent. My Arcs run at 2000

    the important thing is that you are happy with it though. If you are, then that's ALL that should matter. =]

    Those guts look an aweful lot like Avionixx-built products. If not made by them, they're atleast to a similar design. I'll see if I've got any pics floating around.

    Witherway I spose it's neither one way or another, I had some serious issues with avi-made tsunami amps, but the Avionixx-branded replacements are fairly decent for the money.

    Hehe, i know the manufacturer for those amps, same guys who make Crossfire and Kicker, Korean

    Not that thats a bad thing, the company makes some ruddy good amps. But, dear sir, they arent a patch on a D7

    How do you claim a THD of 0.005% and then say they are CEA-2006 compliant measurement? CEA-2006 is power output at 1%THD+N

    Nice... although most people cant pick the difference after a damping factor of 100 or so

    Just as a note too, the damping factor is on a heavily logarythmic scale, even tho 2,000 or even 20,000 sounds like a massively larger number than 200, the difference to the sound in practise is less than if you moved your head a centimetre in either direction. So while a high damping factor can be a sign that the amp is well made, dont expect to hear a difference unless you wear a neck brace while drivin
