For that sort of money, i wouldn't expect too much. funnily enough they don't seem to list RMS outputs. I would take a guess that they are pretty low. Personally i would give it a miss and save up for a second hand alpine or similar. I've tried cheap amps before and been suitably disappointed in them. at the end of the day gets what you pays for. :?

yeh thats basicly wat i expected. i never really expected too much out of it seen as though its a cheap asian brand and an amp with that sort of out put of a good quality brand would end up costing around 500 bucks id say

Prob not the best qualitly but then again cant complain for the price.
Thermal overload and short circuit protection.... cant see it blowing up straight away id prob give it a chance if had to do sterio again but yeah you def get what you pay for.

Buy a second hand brand name if you cant afford one new.

It has 2 x 20A fuses, that means;

40A x 12V = 480W TOTAL

But amps aren't 100% efficient. Class A/B amps like this are more like 70% efficient so;

480W x 0.7 = 336W

But it has 4 channels, so;

336W / 4 = 84W

So it MIGHT make 84W per channel, but I highly doubt it.
