Had to take this amp out for the second time to send it back to MTX for repair. First time it stopped shutting itself off automatically with the car via the remote turn on lead from the head unit.. or the auto-turn-on function. It worked fine otherwise. They replaced the board inside because they are discontinued.

Got it back and a couple weeks later, then one day last week- it smelled like my car was on fire all of the sudden driving down the road at 60 mph.. So I pulled over and after checking for fires, unhooked the fuse by the battery. It still was functioning fine, but smelled like something was burning inside. Not cool.

It sounds great otherwise.. and has a ton of power, but I would not recommend it to a friend!
