Something looks counterfeit about it to me. Just something about the Font and the large lettering. If it were an alpine it would have said 2/1 channel high power amplifier.

Nope. Top half is a Rockford knock off.

I found a newer style fake alpine amp, but looks like an mrv. I keep thinking I saw an amp like this with the chrome bubbles like that, but not sure. Never saw an Alpine like that though. Maybe they just put an alpine sticker on it.

ca90ss you are right it is an amplifier from JVC. This is NOT an alpine car Hifi amplifier.

Are we sure that the JVC amp pictured is real? The counterfeiters have been known to make 1 product and 3 different plexiglass panels, so you can decide what brand amp you want to say you have.

The picture from the JVC is real. The picture from the "alpine" is a fake. JVC build such so amplifiers.
