My home stereo is a Transcendent Sound Mini Beast tube amplifier outputting 3.5 Watts/ch RMS power into a pair of Klipschorns. I am also running a Transcendent Sound Fixer preamp. The sound is incredible, but the bass is lacking because the amp has no bass boost or loudness control. I got the idea to add a sub, so I used the bottom half of a Belle Klipsch speaker (Which has a 15 inch driver) to act as the bass and use a car amplifier and battery to power it. The first amp I got was a Blaupunkt AMP3000D, which was dirt cheap and had great specs. The amp works ok, but there was lots of noise at idle. I then thought it was the battery charger, so I got a filter, and there was still noise. It sounded ok, but if the gain was turned up half way there was a definate noise. Then I saw the review from BIG D about this amp, and checked out the specs and took into account the extra filtering used in the E series, so I pulled the trigger and got it.
At over 3X the price of the Blaupunkt it is light years ahead in performance, and it is dead quiet, just like the rest of my system. It has some punch. The system has incredible bass and I am super happy.
I hooked up my fluke true RMS meter on the output of the amp as well as my oscilliscope and was outputting 40 volts rms with a perfectly clean sine wave at 40 hz. Very cool. I probably should have put a load resistor in. I wonder if this test is at all worthwhile just using the meter's imput impedence?
As far a pricing, in Canadian funny money it was well over $600 including shipping and border costs etc. Well worth it.
There were few introductions in Japan, and there were some uneasy places, but it's D'amore as expected.
I'm very satisfied with the lightweight and small content to output 1000w firmly!
It's stored in the trunk, but it's smaller than the amplifier I used before, so it looks clean!
As a reference, I've been into car audio for 32+ years. I always LONG for my old school Phoenix gold amps. I've also used audison, RF, Orion, audio control, etc. In the past I've used a Sony cd c90 head unit and an incredible eclipse, whose model number I can't remember. Currently, I run high to low level in my '21 A4. I use morel components.( I own the inexpensive maximus, and the newer elate carbons too). All the brands I just referenced are good, quality brands, with many options. However, NO SUBWOOFER, MONO amp has ever sounded as smooth, dynamic, and has ever had the realism REPRODUCTION as this amp!!! Stop reading my review, and just buy it! Best $349,+ shipping I've ever spent on an amp. I live in Orlando,Fla☀️ & ordered the amp late on a Thursday night, & received it Monday. Shipping is more than fair. Pretty sure I'll be ordering the e400.4 next. Thank you TONY!!!( I also watched Steve Meade, big D's,& facekicker's YouTube videos of these amps before purchasing).
I’ve used every name brand amp over the years since 07’ and this E1000.1 blows them all away by far! Sound quality is amazing and the dive of how small it was shocked me. Will be buying another one for my wife’s car as well very soon! Worth every penny hands down
Ok, so I'm obviously an audio nut for over 27 years & this is NO JOKE, (1) of these amazing amplifiers are running (2) 18" Scar Audio SDR 18d2 subs and not just barely moving them, but REALLY moving them! This amp is has super conservative power ratings & does at least 600RMS to each of the 18's. This is much louder, deeper & more aggressive than my (2) Stroker 15's that was running on 2K of Z- series Zapco power... I can only imagine (6) of these amps on (12) 18's🤔😁 God Bless D'Amore Engineering!
