Default Power Akustic LFA1-5500D

Ok I had a kenwood KAC-9104D amp. Spilled redbull and it got under my seat and fried it.. Anyways I was going to go kenwood till I found out they dont cover warranty on items from ebay.. Nevertheless I ran across an auction for Power Akustic LFA1-5500D (A.K.A Loud Fukin Amp)

Are these any good? how so compared to a name like kenwood? I am disabled and far from rich, but music is the only thing left keeping me young (26 and feel like i am 80)

Specs:
  • Power Acoustik LFA1-5500D 5000 watts mono amp
  • 5500 watts peak @ 1 ohm
  • 3200 watts RMS @ 1 ohm
  • 2500 watts RMS @ 2 ohms
  • 1700 watts RMS @ 4 ohm
  • 1 channel
  • Hairline Satin Black Anodized Finish
  • Regulated PWM Power Supply
  • Three-way Protection Circuitry
  • 1 Ohm Load Stable
  • Bridged Synchronization (strap amps together for double power!)
  • Low Pass & Subsonic Filters
  • Pre-Amp Outputs
  • Dash Mount Remote Gain Control
  • 200mV-8V Low Level Inputs
  • Variable 12dB 40-200Hz LPF
  • Variable 12dB 30-175Hz Subsonic Filter
  • Variable 0-18dB 45Hz Bass Boost
  • Frequency Response: 15-150Hz
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 100dB
  • Total Harmonic Distortion: .5%
  • 180 degrees Phase Switch
  • Direct 0 ga. Power Terminal
  • Fuse Rating: 200A (5 x 40A Fuses)
Any info would be awsome

Numbers are a bit exaggerated. 14.4Vdc * 200A = 2880Watts. Sure you could peak over this number without blowing fuses, but you couldn't sustain that power without shutting it down.

The only power acoustic amp I have used BAMF series and the supply dropped as you loaded it. You couldn't get twice the power by halving the resistance, supply wasn't strong enough. I only assume this amp would act the same.

thanx for the quick response. So you think the kenwood series are better? I put my kac-927 in temporarly and suprisingly its turning more heads then the mono did.. Weird how old stuff gives off that grab your chest feel.

well basically got a kenwood that I want to fix, but dont wanna envest 30 in chips and mosfets for something else to be wrong. So pretty much looking for affordable yet quality mono.. presenting 2 polk 12" db series so roughly 400w rms each for now, With definate plans to get higher watt subs later.. Suprisingly them polks take everything that kenwood can toss out
