I use this amp for my bass rig. I bridge it into mono and run a Traynor 4x10-4 Ohm version. So by the specs I'm pushing 1700 watts into it. Probably closer to 1100 but man, it sounds great and has never failed! It is heavy though, but most good stuff is.

i bought the PX1700 amp to power my Yorkville Elite12 speakers. The Amp provides very clean,detailed and transparent power for what ever is played through it. i listen to jazz,blues, and some classic rock vinyl played through a Stanton st.150 Turntable and a SM ProM2 patch passive preamplifier its a winning combination and a incredible value i love the Yorkville build quality.Thank you Yorkville!

I currently use this amplifier for my subs in my living room, i occasionally pull the amp out of the rack for the odd show. - Its rugged design and low distortion specs (It beats most QSC & Crown Amps!) make the speakers more efficient and can take more of a beating (the amp). Also, if you Bridge the amplifier, a single 15Amp outlet can run it, which doesnt leave you stressing for a bigger receptacle that isn't found in most venues. I will definitely purchase a few more of these. Maybe as monitor amps?

I had a Adcom GFA 555 and drove it too hard - right channel failed - underpowered for the size of speakers. Picked up this amp based on the recommendation of staff at L&M and wow - now this is how my Cerwin Vega E-715 were suppose to sound. Love the amp lots of power for my home audio man cave.

Purchased this amp as my old Yamaha one was clipping. The clipping was because I added a pair of Yorkville 18" passive subs in parallel to the mains and the old amp couldn't handle such a low resistance, probably near 2 ohms. This amp handled it without a hiccup, could even go a ton louder than the previous 350w @ 8 ohm x 2 Yamaha. Great solid constucition, easy to use and some limiting features that I haven't pushed yet. How can you go wrong for this price.
