I bought this amp to take the signal level output of my Line 6 brand Variax 600 guitar & PODxt Live guitar amplifier/speaker/effects modeller. I am driving a 12" EVM per channel, and the result is LOUD. I have driven the amp into overload from time to time, and there are no apparent horrid artifacts from doing that.I really, really would like to have some meter on the face, which is the sole reason I gave such a low features rating (hard to give a star for a feature that is not present...).It does not seem to be quite as loud as my 100W tube guitar amp, but I have read that tube amps often put out double their rated power when overdriven, and sometimes even more than that. So perhaps my ears have been ?calibrated? regarding what 100W sounds like with a yardstick that?s twice the size it?s billed as. (My 10W per channel stereo cannot come close to the volume of my guitar amp, for instance.)I really recommend this amp, and am toying with the idea of buying another to have handy for amplification needs that arise from time to time. At this price you can actually afford to do something like that, to my way of thinking.

I don't know what this unit would do if I pushed it hard for extended periods of time, but if that's what you're doing, maybe you need to read reviews other than mine.For the price I couldn't resist gettomg this little amp just to run one 15" Behringer Monitor I got from M.F. to spoil my Karaoke singers, but for the heck of it I hooked it up in stereo to my 15" Yamaha Clubs and hurt my ears - I couldn't believe it. I decided then that when I'm doing a little DJ-only gig, I'll leave my 400+400 Yamaha head at home and just bring this amp and my laptop (the DJ music) and appropriate mains. I even got a little Behringer Mixer from M.F. just for that purpose, so I could hook up a mic for announcements, and/or some little CD player instead working my 3-disk Karaoke machine for CDs.I'm trying to think of reasons to justify to my wife buying a couple more of these little "Gems"!Thanks Musician's (DJs and KJs) Friend.

If your a begining band, and just looking for a amp to power a few speakers, definatly get this. This amp s out tons of power to your speakers. Its made my speakers sound so much better than before, when we had the 120W Kustom 4 channel mixer. :p

Get what you pay for

By Kitchenwizard

I ordered this to power my monitors for my worship band. It looks and feels cheap, its fan is loud, it has some crackles when you adjust the knobs, but hey, for the price, I was not expecting anything much more than this. The price offsets the lacking quality.

Complete Junk

By RobLTS

from Knoxville, TN

See all my reviews

This thing worked 3 times. THREE TIMES and no longer powered up! Fried within a week. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! Dont waist your time or money on this off-brand garbage! you will regret it!! Save your money and buy a quality unit such as crown/peavy/QSC etc... You end up spending more if you buy this cause you still end up having to buy a good amp when this one quits!

Solid Amp......If used correctly.

By Gene Godley

from San Antonio, TX

See all my reviews

Go this amp about 2 weeks ago and it has worked great in the bridged mode. I run (1) 18" EV Force I sub to it rated at 300 watts. It ran for 6 hours straight on an outdoor gig here in the Texas heat and I did the same gig the next week but used it in the stereo mode to run (2) 12" EV Force monitors. It has worked great. I agree the fan is a bit loud but this is no problem in the bar and clubs. Great amp if used correctly.

Good Cheap Amp

By Phat Man

from SLC, UT

This amp is pretty decent - especially for the price - It is plenty loud, I use it to power a 600W Berhinger 1X15 Cab. It definitely holds up against the whole band. The only thing that really sucks about it is that there's no 1/4" INPUT - it only has RCA and Banana Clip inputs. (What kind of power amp has no 1/4" input???) - whatever - it still rocks - but be ready to buy a 1/4" -> RCA adapter.

The Price Is Right

By 1960 Pbass

from surprise, AZ

I'm using this amp to bi-amp the 2 10's in my Peavey 1820 cab running it in bridge mode (450 watts). It has a pretty good sound and is very quiet and so far no clipping. There is some fan noise but it's not bad. Construction while not super heavy duty is still fairly good but I would'nt feel safe if it got dropped. I mounted mine in an SKB rack. If you need decent power and are looking for a bargain this could be your ticket. My only beefs are the lack of 1/4 inch phono inputs as you only get RCA or XLR so you have to use adaptors. Also the owners manual is pretty poor. You only get the basics and a copy of the schematic.Overall it seems decent and should hold up if you put it in a rack or don't knock it around.

Keep spare amps handy, You will need them.

By Wellsgardnerrepair

from Wisconsin, USA

Picked up 20 units on the last sale. For a really cheap throw away amp they are cheap enough although the quality is not built in them. Poor fan, Main power supply Capacitors blow up after about a year and other issues. Of the 20 all 20 have already had to be serviced. Ended up here as am doing a search for the schematic have one on the bench here with resitor r47 burnt open and cannot read parts value anymore to replace it.Overall if you need a poormans backup these would be ok but I wouldn't trust it for everday use unless it stays in the garage.

from Fraser, MI

This thing stinks. It seemed good just to look at.It was heavy (weight) and seemed to be built quite well for the price. I tried hooking this thing up in multiple fashions. I finally got SOME sound out of it using an RCA to quarter input, and using the stereo outs. The posts didn't work at all, and neither did bridging. When I finally did get sound out of it, it sounded like a Foghorn. It had absolutely NO highs. It was all Mid/bottom.I had absolutely no use for this piece of trash, and I returned it the next day. I guess you get what you pay for.

Solid studio, monitor, or small rig amp

By Rocker Mark

from Menomonie,WI

See all my reviews

This is no QSC RMX2450, So, if your intentions are to use it in a main system - STOP NOW! This amp is an exellent D/J or karaoke amp, studio, monitor or small guitar/bass rig amp. Run it at 3/4 volume and NEVER peak the inputs, she gets really dirty up there. They seem to overload/protect alot in a hard drive in bridged mode, so keep 'er low an clean and she's good.

Ok Amp

By H4ldrummer

from Milwaukee. WI

This is a average amp for starters on a budget. I use this amp to power my Yamaha stage monitors and it does the job. I use a QSC to power my my JBL's but the Gem Sound XP-350 works fine to power my monitors. I recommend this amp for any starter trying to get a gig on.

100 watter!

By Wayne Fennimore

from Denver foothills

I bought the 1000-watt version a few years ago....it blew up the first time I used it, but the retailer said 'No problem' and replaced it in about a week. I've been using the new one in a bi-amped PA setup ever since with great sound, albeit a little hissy, and not a glitch since. (Oh no, hope I didn't jinx myself!)

GREAT STEREO AMP FOR KEYBOARDS AND HARMONICA

By Capt. Funk

from Pocono Mts., Penna.

See all my reviews

Right now I'm using it to power 2 Kustom KPC-15's, 2 stereo keyboards and a mic for harmonica thru a Behringer 1622FX mixer. I LIKE it, alot. It's clean, built well and looks good! The fans are a little loud...but you know they are running! I'm going to get another one and two more KPC-15's and have each keyboard on it's own system. You can't beat the value and benefit of those items. The free gift is a plus too!It's a neat and handy little light. The Botton line..YOU CAN'T BEAT IT FOR THE MONEY!

Great . Buy It .

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought my XP-woofer, it puts out. I'll buy more 350 3 months ago for my daughter's garage band, other than a little fan noise (if and when everything is quiet)it is a great amp. I am driving 2-150 watt cabs with 15 inch woffers and 3 tweeters. Even when playing a CD and boosting the EQ to kick like a sub of these. Very Nice. I like the clip lights too, a nice feature. I buy and use Crown amps a work, but they have the money to spend for the name brand. Save your money and buy a Gem. One more thing, the new PC boards do stink for the first few days. Run it a few days out in the garage to get the new plastic smell out before using it or taking it to a club.

Inexpensive Power

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp is pretty good considering the price. the fans are very loud for indoor applications but i have been running it with the fans disconnected for the past 4 months with no trouble or temperature problems at all. This amp is not very quiet and is definitely not for studio use. there will be a small bit of noise through the speakers, even if there is nothing connected to the input. but it's not too bad. the only time i notice the noise is if the room is completely or almost quiet. I have been using it to drive a pair of custom made 2x12" home theater subs in bridged mono mode, and it carries the bass pretty well. the only problem i find with this amp is that after a while the RCA plugs become loose and the connection goes bad. also it has no 1/4 input.overall good for the money, but definitely not high grade professional gear.

RUN AWAY!

By PV FAN ANnONnOMOUS

from IDAHO

See all my reviews

Disappointment from day one... Turned it on and the fan was rattling loose all over inside of it. The tone is quite lacking (about like a mic plugged into a distorted guiatar amp). Compared to even a nady amp at the same price you get twice as much for your money (for the nady, that is, not this one, this one sucks...) It pushes not. It sounds bad. It is pre-broken, cheaply built and not worth whatever it is you pay for it under any circumstances... Go nady...

rocks!

I bought this amp as a back up for my system. Sure enough, my Crown went down. I hooked this amp up, not expecting much, but I was blown away with the performance. No need to spend more money on an amp!
