Default Kenwood 1000w

Im not sure of the midel number but this guy I know is selling one of these for $250 canadian, I can probably get it for 200. Would this amp drive my 12" subs (check sig) well? Will it have enough power to make the most of my subs?

for the price, i'd say go for it. If it has high/low pass filters, that'* usually a sign its good. I thought I had the whole power system down, but at the moment I am confused, if you think it'll work with your setup, then that'* good. Personally, I don't see anyway that it couldn't, but there could be a reason it wouldn't.

You blew your amp!?

Yes, this Kenwood 1000W for $200 is a very good deal, and a good amp.

yes yes i did. i think. probably. it turns on then with a little thump of the subs it turns off again.

had to get rid of the cathode too. wasnt allowing the amp to turn on all the way or sumthin.

The only way that would happen is if something was loose, it only draws 5mA, which is essentially nothing. Put it back in and check all your connections.
