Default JL Amp Satisfaction and Review

I just replaced aged Clarion and Soundstream amps (vintage +/-2000) with a used JL M700/5 and am blown away. I knew the JL amp is definitely better, newer and more efficient technology/quality but was not expecting this much difference. I'm powering a pair of Alpine Type S 6.5s, pair of Alpine Type R 7s and a Clarion 10" subwoofer. Based of the number ratings, the two set ups SHOULD have been comparable. The old system was nearly maxed out power wise and sounded OK. The JL amp is not even running half power on all inputs and is sounding great! The speakers have never seen there true potential before. If you don't understand what "clean power" means, try a high quality amp and you will know right away. Clean crisp sound! The only draw back, now I want to replace my good speakers with some great JL or We Sounds speakers! I got a great deal in the amp but it's going to cost me a lot of money now!

Glad to hear.

I'm having all new electronics installed now and among that is a M600/6 amp, 2 pair of 7.7 and 1 pair of 8.8 with a Fusion BB300R stereo.

Can't wait to hear the system in my new boat.
M600/6 running 6 M7.7's
M600/1 running 2 M10" subs
Should be good enough for a 25' boat.

I absolutely love my JL setup.

4 X 8.8, 2 X 7.7, 2 X 6.5, and 2 X 10" subs running off 2 LJ Amps in a 2003 Hydrasports 2800 Vector WA.

My wife says I'm obnoxiously loud and I personally like it that way .

Yep, I upgraded to two 700/5's a year ago and couldn't be happier, you are absolutely correct
