I have had this amp for many years now and I have had nothing but complete happiness from the use of this amp. It is reliable and built tough. When I use this amp it will get your signal out through the toughest of conditions. I have had 100 percent great reports from every contact an no negative reports. If I had any suggestions to make for this product I would say ( ADD A PRE AMP ) like you have on your other amps. If anyone is in the market for an amp , this is the one I suggest everyone to purchase. Thank you TEXAS STAR FOR A GREAT PRODUCT. THANK YOU COPPER FOR SELLING TEXAS STAR AMPS

I bought one and a Galaxy 98VHP at different times and did a retune on the 98 so I can go down to 6 dead key and stop it at 50 wat DK. I drive the 1600 with around 20 swinging to just around 100 when it beeps, I run a 225 amp alternator, 1000amp battery with a 3farad stiffening cap at the amp on audio grade cable from the batt fused under hood for + & -. No problems running it there with lights and A/C on since alternator is rated to output 135amps at idle speed, just a massaged part of the police package on the Crown Vic Interceptor. Easy kilowatt and could dead key more into it and still have plenty of swing.
