On this page my amp is labled Class D and the 4 channel is not labeled Class D. A/B amps are not a bad thing they just get hotter than class D. That is why I think the 4 channel has a fan and the Class D does not. I would think sony would put somewhere in the description that its class A/B but they did not. Maybe afraid it would help sell the amp. Class D did full range amps are a fairly new market. these amps have been out since 2008 leading me to believe that the 4 channel being full range capable is typical class A/B, also when its bridged the output power and configuration is typical of a class A/B, none the less its a good amp and not to be over looked. By the way I paid 88 bucks for my mono amp from 6aveelectronics.com; however, they dont offer the 4 channel that you have.

I could have sworn I saw somewhere it was class D, but it doesn't really matter because it has the fan so no worries on mounting it upside down or anything.

Yeah no worries man, the dash is ideal, there is plenty of air moving around down there, its a huge open cavity!

I am not planning on this until the spring for tax money... But when I do eventually do the build on it, I will let you know how it goes.

The Kicker L5 sub, crazy bass in a small space. You wont regret it! This is neigbor hood bass with 500 watts rms, you looking for something substantial this is it. The port adds 3dB, essentially the same as doubling your amplifier power.

How do you like that small alpine 4 channel?? I have read mixed reviews.. For cheap amps I have had great luck with the mb quarts but they are pretty damn big so been trying to figure out my plan for a decent hidden system in the jeep.. I would love the alpine unit as i have a 9886 headunit right now but Im just not too sure about it

Thanks

The hole the board bolts through, it was already there or you drilled it? My 98 doesn't even have the piece the hole is in.

Must be one of those small changes they made in 03. Unless I'm totally missing it cause I'm looking from underneath. I'm sure I can figure out a way to make it work though.

good to know for others on here, you may have to drill a hole or use 90 degree angle brackets on the steering column bolts.

I'm hoping to get some speakers for Christmas so I may rework the amp and try to do something like yours instead of what I cooked up. I also need to replace the power cable with something smaller and finer.
