Anyone here had any experiences with this amp??
It would be replacing my MTX blue thunder pro 752 and running 2 12" Pioneer subs (500W max, 160W nom).

i havent had any experience with this amp but they are highly spoke of they will probly do a little more 300 watts but it doesnt have a subsonic filter.your mtx amp does about 300 to right? you would probly wouldnt gain anything by upgradeing your amp. you might be be better saving your money or building a ported box.

what voice coil config are your subs

The JBL BP300 would be a decent choice. The Cobalt 265 you were asking about on SD would not as it is not 2ohm mono stable.

I will also recommend this amp if you are on a budget. Mainly because I have no use for this amp but I am really tempted to buy it anyways.

a little confused on you amp specs

is it like this

37.5 x2 into @ 4 ohm
75 x2 into @ 2 ohm
150 x1 into @ 4 ohm
280 max power @ 4 ohms

if this is the case your are not getting the maximum power out of this amp and the jbl would be a better choice.they are selling at sounddomain for an extremely good price ( jbl 300.1)
you would be able to give those subs there RMS power

ive had a 1200.1, 180.2 and 300.1 in my system before. The 300.1 was a great amp, never had a problem with it, always put out good power, i just didn't like the crappy crossover on it so i used an outboard one. Never got hot, always liked the 2 ohm load i had on it.

It should do around 350 watt rms or so.

those subs will hook up to do a 2 or 8 ohm load and that mtx probly isnt ment to do a 2 ohm mono load
so its either hooked up to do 4 ohm stereo or 8 ohm bridged

if he switches to the jbl it can be run at 2 ohm no problem and this will give his subs the rms power and you would gain 3 dbl's cause you have twice the power

correct me if im wrong

wiring diagram's here
