BOSS Audio AR1500M

BOSS Audio R1004


+ Bass EQ.
+ Affordable option.
+ Switchable bass boost.
+ High output (1500 watts).
+ Intelligent protection.

+ 2/4 channel option
+ 400 watts max output.
+ Short protection.
+ Very low priced.


It is a solid choice for a mono amplifier, it provides meaty low ends and means business.

It is incredibly priced for a 4 channel option, it competes with some amplifiers 3 or 4 times its price, but the lack of a low pass filter control could be a deal-breaker for some of you, regardless it makes our list as a top option.
