you can also buy several amplifiers for the same price as one Powersoft which you can keep in reserve in case of amp failure.

I heard "someone", setup at a Reggae gig, with Chinese 1U amp, with 4x 8 ohm 21" cabs per side.

Within 15 minutes, the amp was toast.

Apparently this was a "veteran" Reggae sound dude.

Not how I would do it, at all.Ermm

Perhaps we should share our experiences of which models have worked for us ;)

Had convo, with very experienced mate, who tells me, for these 1U 2x channel, "big" Chinese lightweights, for people who insist on loading them with 4-8x  21" subs, the thin line between amp working the whole night, and sub disappearing mid gig, is the HPF setting...

only one anecdotal story but disappointing from Sinbosen which look the best on paper and have a reasonable reputation. It's better not to have to make a warranty claim but if you have to it's nice to know that it will be honoured.

Have thought of making fake warranty claims for some of my amps to various manufacturers and see what the customer service response is, and then tell them the issue is resolved before they ship a replacement board out.

This outlines the importance, of thoroughly researching Chinese branded products, and locating relevant social media feedback, before taking the leap.

I'm about to pull the trigger on an Admark, and heard few things today, that confirmed why I was hearing conflicting reports from all over the World.

All depends on owners intended use, technical ability, and understanding you cannot use cheap China amp, the same way you would, an established premier brand.

For tops you could build your own amps out of modules from Hypex/ICepower/Pascal: https://www.soundimports.eu/en/icepower-2000as2.html ;
more expensive but good quality.

I’ve yet to have an issue running oberton 1300 and pd1850 on Jam Q10 or CVR 3002 (Usually crossed at 35hz). Jam Q10 did end up with an unexplainable fault (was only running EV SX300 at the time) but blue Aran sorted it in great timing and all was resolved! Considering I only got the Q10 to run 12s in some KF750s it seriously surprised me when running our hogs, proper versatile little thing it is! Will have some more reputable branded amps to compare with come the new year but as of present the Jam and the CVR work perfectly fine on bass for me!

Don't forget making your Money Back with profit! All the amplifiers I've purchased in the past 8 years have paid them self back within the first 3-6 months and they are making me profit by the end of the year.


The majority of products are designed today to be disposable. So, you need to keep that in perspective.


In the case of the guy that posted his rant on AVS Forums, Costa Rica's line voltage is 110 – 120. The symptoms he is describing is based upon not having not enough line voltage.


In regards to the gasoline Generator he posted a video on, the amplifiers are protecting themselves because the voltage being produced by the generator may not be a sinusoidal waveform.



Best Regards,
