Not trying to start anything or shit on you or your equipment by any means, just looking for an answer as there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of info online about that amp.

How am I being a dick ? You brought your new amp on here and talked it up and almost made me want one so I needed to research it an I did and it turns out they ain't all that so I don't want one after all. How is that being a dick ? I can't even find good photos of it on the internet, which is suspect to me. I can tell you my 3.0 makes 300 hp, but that doesn't mean it actually does. Dave can tell you that amp makes 1400 watts, but that diesn't mean it actually does. Also makes no difference where something is made. If it doesn't do what the manufacturer claims it will do, what is the point ?

Please post photos of the connection side and control side of the amp and post them here so we can at least see what we are talking about. Always seems kinda skeezy when a website shows very limited views of their products.
