Any opinions?

I have been hearing of quite a few random channel failures on the JL "slash" series amps, something to be weary of especially if you are not buying authorized.

I really feel more comfrontable buying from a dealer that I can go back to if I have any trouble and I try to do so when I can.

Overpriced but seem to be solid amps.

Why does your 1500D put out as much power as 2 1000/1 amps and draw less amps in the process?

I have 2 JL amp's in my truck and love them. 300/2 running 2 XR components and 2 XR coaxils , and a 250/1 running a 10w1v2 . I have ran alot of different type's of amps. and the JL AMP are the best by far. But that is my opinion.

I like mine... No problems with my JL equipment. And I don't think my seller was authorized. You guys will be the second to know if it takes a dump... Just don't hold your breath. :rockon

As someone said, overpriced but they do perform fine. Stick with Sundown, your not going to hear a difference between the two and you will save major money.

The big brother to the 1000D or the one that will stomp 2 JL 1000/1's is the SAZ-1500. That one retails for 599. But of course James will have a lower price.

You can read more about these amps at http://www.sundownaudio.com/

I've got a 300/4 and a 500/1. Had them all for over a year with absolutely no problems. Never over heated (and I'm in FL). Never cut out. They seem to be very very solid amps. My 500/1 pushes two 10W6v2's with power to spare. I would say that it could efficiantly push two 12W6's and probably four 10W6's.
Having said all of this. My next vehicle will have Boston mids and highs and either Boston subs or Sundown subs and I will use Sundown amps. I have to give them a try with everything I'm hearing about them. And most dealers will not give you a deal on JL stuff. All of my JL equipment, including the JL wires and fuses ran me over 2 grand.

The 1000D retails for $399.00. Email James for pricing...
You got to be f-ing kidding me! That's like a $600 price difference!

That is one of the reasons why you always hear us say, "nice product but way overpriced" when anyone asks about JL Audio. If you could get the 1000/1 for say 500 bucks then it would be more reasonable. JL has a great name and everyone knows them, they do have good products they are just priced wayy to high.

That is also why you hear us talk about Sundown with such high praise. Jacob has done his home work and his products prove it.

1000D is still a better amp. Puts out about 1100 RMS of clean power and has a very small footprint.
1100W RMS @ what? 1,2, or 4 ohm load? I have 2 4 ohm subs I want to run off it.

1000 x 1 watts @ 1 ohm
600 x 1 watts @ 2 ohms
300 x 1 watts @ 4 ohms

JL's put out over a 1000 from 1.5 throughout 4 ohms. One of the nice features as far as flexibility.

Sweet. Then I can bridge the subs and use the 600W rating AND keep the gains down to keep the amp cooler.

I think I just found my amp!

Now I just have to convince the wife!
