Question how good is a boss amp?????????

hey, i was going to buy myself a 1200W boss amp for $349, but i dont know how good the quality is. does anyone know if boss is any good? (sorry i dont have more details about the amp)


It's one thing to lose a drag, it's another thing to lose a drag against a holden. I'd die before I let that happen to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: how good is a boss amp?????????

I got a 1000W boss amp and it works pretty well. I havent really got any complaints with it although it does lack at bit in the quality department (I have also got a sansui amp and it produces much clearer and crisper sound (IMHO)). I thought my brother bought his 1000W amp for $190 at a straithfield sale so $349 sounds very expensive ... guess it must be a better and newer model or something.

Re: how good is a boss amp?????????

I have one, and am happy with it (havent had it going for long) my bro has had his in for a year, runs a 10 inch pioneer and rear 6x9's and sounds sweet, my mate has one (as well as a pioneer) just to run speakers, and does the job well (his is smaller tho).

its one of those things, get what you pay for, but for what you ARE paying for, I think they are well worth it!

Re: how good is a boss amp?????????

dont bother. for 360 you can get a much better amp. boss have the tendency to catch on fire, this along side their poor sound quality and highly overrated rms values. drop into Jaycar and have a squiz at their Response stuff, much better quality for the price. or alternatively look at http://www.advanceae.com.au/

nice response and power acoustik amps etc. cheaper and much better than boss crap.

good luck!
