    Its alright. I bought this to replace my jl audio jx1000/1d but I regret it. The soundqubed is suppose to be 200-300 watts more power than my jl audio amp but it sounds weaker. My old jl audio lower line amp hit all notes hard with authority with zero bass boost. This soundqubed amp doesnt hit no where near as hard as my jl audio amp even when using the bass boost. This amp also seems to hit distortion very easily. The bass is very weak and sounds muddy on the low notes. Its not that bad of an amp, its just not what I expected at this price. If I knew it was going to perform like this I would have bought the new cheaper lower line s series instead of the q series. I would rate this amp to the same quality sound performance as a power acoustik amp or hifonics amp and I honestly think both of those amps would perform better than this one. Fyi this is not my first soundqubed product. 2 years ago I bought a hdc4 18 and it slammed so hard it bent my license plate. Subwoofer was amazing but this amp not so much.

    I have one of these from back when they were under a different brand name. (AudioQ)

    I’ve been using it to run a single Sundown SA15 at DOUBLE RMS for the last SEVEN YEARS in my daily driver. I do run this amp right at the point where it begins to clip playing music at maximum volume. (basically running the amp hard/beyond its ratings regularly)

    I’ve had this Amp/Sub compo through four different cars now over time. It has suffered through a lot of vibration but still works fine. (I have/had it attached to the back seat in each vehicle, which moves quite a bit when the Sub hits)

    I really hope that these amps are still made with the same quality today. (it’s the same price it was back in the day so it seems doubtful but maybe) So far it has been an excellent purchase.

    I could not be happier with this amp, have been using it for a couple weeks now and man does it slam! I cannot run the gain all the way up. It seems really well built, and it never seems to get hot. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

    Awesome amp to drive my dual 10″ HDS subs. Plenty of power at 1ohm configuration and it hits hard with gain turned slightly over half way. My friends thought I was running 12″ subs, go Soundqubed!!!

    Just purchased the 1200.2 for my Alpine Type R 12 Set-up. Sounds great as is, very punchy and tight. I can’t wait to upgrade to a soundqubed 1 ohm sub to really make the most of it. Great Amp! Delivery was very prompt and professional. I am impressed with this company’s service and will continue to purchase their products!

    Ordered this 1200w amp and love it. It pushes my HDS 312 to new heights. I recommend this if you have soundqubed subs. Also recommend a strong durable box.

    Absolutely great amp. Stays cool and has no problems. Only reasons I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because 1. the amp did not come with install screws, which is the only amp I’ve ever bought that didn’t come with included and 2. the amp has 4 gauge inputs not 0 gauge, so I had to buy reducers to fit my 0 awg, which the site does not mention.

    Pretty awesome. Have this driving the hds d2 in a 1.6 Cubic FT. Box.slams like 2 15″s

    I own 3 of these amps. Mine are the AQ1200s though, the AQ logo is way better than the sq.I have 2 of the original AQ1200s strapped @ 2ohm on a DD3512 and let me tell you runnin these amps together make this 3500 bounce around all kinds of crazy. Very solid amps .. They stay cool.. Great purchase

    Maybe I got a lower powered amp but My Rockford Fosgate prime 1200 with nearly identical ratings even rated lower at 4 ohms and 2 ohms blows this amp away. Soundqubed wants a 20 percent fee to return the amp so I am stuck with it. I sold my Fosgate thinking this would be a better option but i regret it.

    I bought this amp for a DC Audio level 4 15. She plays loud and low! If you’re looking at Soundqubed, you have come to the right spot! For $270, you can’t go wrong! Stay away from cheap $80 amplifiers. Cheap amplifiers don’t produce real power, they produce heat. The tuning process of an amplifier is the most important part in car audio system. Tuning your amplifier properly will make all the difference into sound quality and output. The enclosure of the sub is also an important factor. Some subs perform better in a sealed enclosure. Some subs perform better in a ported enclosure. The high end SPL subs are optimize for a ported enclosure such as DC Audio, not sealed. If you want real power, Soundqubed has it all for you! Don’t hesitate to buy their amplifiers!

    I’ve been in car audio a long time and I’ve seen and listen to all types of amps. There have been a few high end amps that perform really good and a few that I’ve been really disappointed in. Soundqubed builds high end amps without the high end price and they perform great!

    I purchased this amp to replace my alpine mrdm500 I had pushing my sundown sa12d4. The 870 watts at 2 ohms puts a hurtin on the sub. my trunk flexes like crazy. The amp has a nice clean look and feels nice and heavy quality!

    ok so i had a nakamichi pa-1500 amp,,,it had rich deep bass but it was having some problems, (they didnt repair it right) anyways i orderd this after thinking of all my options and it was a good buy,, hits hard sounds good, but it was lacking the rich deep bass i was used to,, sounds good, just not amazingly good… i would buy again

    Shipping was fast and amp was packaged well. Unfortunately that’s where the pro’s stop. The first time it installed/swaped amp it started to smoke !! I sent it back for RMA . Well soundqubed said it had a burnt power supply and they would send to amp tech for price to repair. After 9 days I called to try and find any information on amp. Only to be told the same line, it has to go to amp tech. So I’m out my $269 for amp plus $38 to send back and who knows how much to fix my NEW amp. If I ever get amp back I’ll be selling it and going with another brand. It’s a shame I had plained on getting soundqubed 12’s to replace my Obsidian 12’s.

    Purchased this to wire 1-ohm to a single 10″ HDS310 and am pushing 1,200 watts RMS to it, and have been for ~ 4 months. No problems whatsoever. Gain is set about 1/2 and you should see the look on my friends’ faces when I show them I have a single 10″ HDS310 in a custom built ported enclosure pushing this much power and frequency response. I will NEVER regret purchasing this amplifier. The included bass knob that I have set up in between my driver seat and center console (in a 2012 Camaro 2LT that came with the Boston Acoustics 9-speaker system) is one of my favorite additions. Anytime I want to stop banging and getting a back massage I can just turn the knob down to about 3/4 or 1/2 and still enjoy crisp and powerful bass from the HDS310. If your budget is anywhere from $500-$700 I recommend this amplifier with either a single 10″ HDS310 or two HDS210s (trunk space of course being a deciding factor). SOUNDQUBED FTW! Anyone that also drives a Camaro (whether it’s the LS, 1LT, or 2LT feel free to contact me via Twitter (@Lyrique501) or by e-mail (brandenacre@ymail.com) for further assistance. Camaros can be tricky and you may have to purchase an additional harness that plugs into the Boston Acoustics amp located in the trunk (BTW, the battery is also in the trunk, so the power, ground, and RCAs are all wired exclusively inside the trunk. Camaros are perfect for even an inexperienced car audio installer like myself.) Again, as I stated before… SOUNDQUBED FTW!!!

    No more! No more searching for Affordable Quality.. its Here. Aside from boring design and backwards bass knob dial :/ this product is legit in every way. Efficiency, Sound Quality, Quality Built, Performance, True Power Rating, Temperature Control, versatility, ….Everything you want from a good quality Amplifier. I gotta give it to these guys. By the time I’m done I may own one of each of their products lmao.

    I have two of these strapped to an HDC3 at one ohm final. Each are seeing .5 ohm and taking it..make sure you have good electrical because these things will get hot if you dont watch voltage. AWESOME amps!!!

    Incredible amp, pushs 12 in sub at 1 ohm easily. I would definitively recommend calling, I had ordered a larger amp, staff called me to inquire about my system, made awesome recommendations, we couldn’t be happier.

    I love the design and simplicity of the amp and it really pushes my SDC2.5 15s! I like this amp alot. Only thing that would make it better would be if the SoundQubed logo lite up when it is on!

    I love this amp, hardly gets warm even on full tilt. I also bought the HDS212 to go with it. I would highly recommend this amp. I upgraded my daily driver with this setup. Well worth the money I spent. The bass knob is perfect for when I’m at a stop light.

    Man this amp really packs a punch. Very clean power and loud it really pushes my Arc 12 hard. I like that it has a clipping light on remote bass gain. When I ready for my next sub it will be from this company 4sure!

    I bought this guy to pair up with my HDC3 15. All I can say is wow. I have a video up on YouTube of it almost breaking my rear view mirror off in a 2000 maxima which I am running mine at .5 for now I’m buying three more of these soon to pair up with my other three 15’s

    Been using this with my HDC 3.0 15 @1 ohm double 8 gauge wires and she works just fine with gain about 1/3 up before the clip light comes on! Running 0GA power wire, to a 4GA converter and no problems at all. Gets a little hot but only when i push it hard.
