3.0 out of 5 stars Works great, but get an alternative., July 22 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Used others. Yes, it does what it's supposed to do. Does it well. Yes, it's handy.

That said, if you're looking at this, get Sawyer Mini instead. Lasts longer, is smaller, better filter, comes with other goodies, connects to drink bladder and common pop bottles. For only a couple bucks more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for small craft, July 22 2016

Bought this for use with a 12ft inflatable fishing boat. Digs into the muddy bottom quickly, and held all day long. Very nice how it folds up securely. Finish is a bit rough. Getting a second to stop swaying in the wind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice., July 14 2016

Audible signal. Hold function. Backlit. Rubber surround. Big, easy to read display. Kickstand. All nice features, and it works pretty well as a plain ol' multimeter. Had it one day and I've already used it a few times.

No complaints.

Great. Installed just fine on my x99p-sli. I had the option of sending a Proof of Purchase/ownership to Noctua to get a free one, but I couldn't be bothered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice for the price., July 13 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Yes, the lures are of lower quality, but it's expected considering the price. Still, quality is better than expected. An excellent variety of gear, and the box even has a little shelf, which was a nice surprise. It'd be perfect for a kid to teach them to take care of their own gear.

Second cast with the gold/black crank, and I got a 5lbs pike.

5.0 out of 5 stars First amp dead. Replacement is awesome., July 7 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Revised review. First one came with an apparent dead amplifier. It just wouldn't come on.

So I ordered another. And it's great. For the price, one cannot go wrong: Comes with everything for a stock or aftermarket stereo, installed without trouble. Instructions are sparse, and finding specs on the amp was harder than it should've been. Was well packaged adn came with lots of connectors, zipties, terminators, etc. My one small gripe is that the power cord, at 17ft, was barely long enough to route along the left side and under the trim of my 2016 Civic sedan. If it just another foot, i would've been able to use the route i initially planned. But I altered the path a bit, and it's good. Anyone wanting to run across corners or around other thing will have to use another, or add an extension. I also think they should include a fuse tap. I had to buy one for the remote turn-on cable, and piggybacked it to my accessory fuse.

The strength isn't awesome. You won't be one of the idiots bothering people as they sleep. But it does an excellent job of rounding out the sound in the car, which is exactly what i was after. The enclosure seems good enough (0.75" thick) and the coen and driver look fine. Not high-end, but not chincy. The amp is staying cool. I mounted them using wide, industrial velcro so I can remove them if need be. Though they take not a lot of trunk space. The remote gain knob is handy, though I'm unsure whether it's tied into the bass boost knob, is an additional boost, or what.. I doesn't appear to change the Gain setting.

Being a technical guy, but a car audio noob, this was my first aftermarket install. One nice tip i found for setting the gain correctly was to disconenct the sub from the positive terminal on the amp zero out all audio settings (bass, mid, treb), set stereo at 75% of max (or turn up until you get distortion, then bring it back a bit), and play a 50 or 60hz tone. Connect a multimeter set to AC to the speaker terminals, and raise the Gain until you're getting 23.4 volts. According to all the info i could find, 22.4 volts is the ideal, safe amount of power for this setup. RMS watts x ohms, squared - voltage.250watts X 2ohms = 500. Square that, you get 22.4.

Yes, I'm very satisfied. But now it has me considering replacing the speakers, too...

Nice hooks. Inconsistent elastic strength. They'll do, but you get what you pay for.

Works well enough. Will stick velcro hook tape to the bottom to keep it from n sliding around. Material is a thinner than expected, but it's strong. Wish it has a fold down stiff bottom...
