The new JL amps any good?

I've heard they kick ass. Anyone have experience with them?

We've sold a bunch of them and they work great. We just got the new 5 channel in and it really sounds awesome.
Here's 2 500/1 on 2 15W3 with a 5 farad cap and EQS.

System is in a super-fly Navigator w/20".
Hit Man X: I would recommend a 300/4 and a 500/1 for your request. 75x4 and 552x1.

OK, I was looking for something different. Never seen a cap looking like that before.

How much would that 300/4 set me back? That 500/1?

While JL and some SPL competitors are putting 2000W on each driver and not burning them up, I would not recommend it for long life.
What issues have you had with the cap? We've had none.

Yes, we ended up with a very close color and texture match to the vehicle's plastic panels. Sometimes we're not so lucky.

We design the enclosures and have a local wood shop make them for us. It is faster and less expensive than building them ourselves. The enclosures are delivered raw and then we carpet or vinyl them usually.
