Not nearly what I was expecting.....
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Looks great, nice features.....but WAY under-powered and gets HOT even in 8 ohm stereo (200 watts per ch) mode. Fell way short of firing up an SWR 8X10. In Mono mode it was a little better, but shut off after 15 minutes. I had to put it back in stereo mode to fire it back up.
Quality
How is the quality of the product? Was it well made?
Looks like a tank, weighs a ton. I've owned a Hartke 7000 for 20+ years and still use it occasionally, it still POUNDS! I was hoping for an updated version here, but no such luck.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
Nice features, that's why I chose it. Everything plus the kitchen sink.
Sound
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
The tone is good, but compared to other big Bass amp heads like SVT4,the big GK,and others, the Kilo just isn't loud enough. Not even close.
Feel
Are the controls logically laid out?
Yes, very nice controls and lay-out.
Tone
How is the tone? Distortion vs clean?
Again, good tone, just no balls at mid-high volume levels.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I really wanted to love this amp, but it just doesn't deliver the goods. Thanks AMS staff for the great service in processing my exchange. You guys are the BEST!
