    A mate of a mate.. mmm that old chestnut. Gave him 200 bucks for what I thought was going to be a pioneer monoblock (didn't even look at it so my own fault).. He gave me a bloody soundstorm amp.

    I think it's this one here;
    SoundStorm F2600D Class D Mono 2600W Car Amplifier/Amp - eBay (item 360215388109 end time Dec-10-09 07:25:11 PST)

    mmm I looked at it and it doesn't look all that flash. Meant to be 1200w @ 2ohm... it only has two 25a fuses. What are your thoughts about the amp? Did some research and people all over the net are giving it crap reviews..

    I'll either go back to him and ask for my money back (he's a shifty bloke), or just offload it to somebody else and go get a kicker zx750.1

    2 X 25amp fuses.

    Very roughly...
    P=VI,
    P=13Volts X 50amps
    P=650Watts
    Assume amp is 70% efficent since class D
    650*0.70=455W....


    Just a little shy of the stated power.

    Or if you were a little more optimistic...

    2 X 25amp fuses.

    Very roughly...
    P=VI,
    P=14Volts X 50amps
    P=700Watts
    Assume amp is 85% efficent since class D
    650*0.85=595W....

    Class AB amps are around 70% efficient. Class D are usually above 85% efficient.

    Get your money back? I don't usually think the "round up a posse" method of getting a refund is the right course of action, but if he lied to you about the product, well......
