It is with great sorrow that I am giving up this fine amp. I have used it for 7 months with no problems whatsoever. Specs available at

http://mobile.jlaudio.com/pdfs/Slash_amps/500_5_MAN.pdf

Functionality 10/10
Apearance 7/10

Only "problems" with the amp are the scratches that I have posted the pictures of.

I am asking $315 shipped con us. Feel free to PM me with any questions. Local pickup is possible also. I will accept paypal or cash.

bump for you...nice amp!

I didn't realize that these JL's allow for a fully active setup already onboard.

Thanks forthmeal. The amp is great for active, the only downside is you cannot under lap the crossover between the rear (25w) and front channels. Otherwise perfect 1 amp solution.

What do you mean that "you cannot under lap the crossover between the rear (25W) and front channels?"

I want to use this with my stock BMW headunit and run active up front and my sub in the trunk.

Thanks,

He means that you can't overlap them, so when you set the pass at 2.5Khz, that's what the other channel gets as its cross point as well. So, unlike a typical active crossover, you are unable to create an overlap, like say you wanted your mids crossed at 3.5, and your tweets at 3...can't do it. The tweets would be a 3.5 as well.

IMO, big whoop...EQ is technically a crossover if you use it correctly. You can EQ more dB's at the cross point and change it entirely.

Also, the sub stage can be STRAPPED with a JL 250/1 for double the power. Neato.

I did not realize that! Nice feature!

You cannot over or underlap. The xover point is fixed as forthmeal said. Underlaping is done sometimes to prevent the gain when 2 drivers are playing the same frequencies (at the xover point). An example: tweet hp at 5k and mid lp at 4.5k.

Never new the 500/5 could be strapped with a 250/1? It can run a second 250/1 as a slave amp though. All the crossover functions of the 500/5 can control additional 250/1s giving you a second, third, fourth, ect, ect sub channels.

Can't strap to double the power, but you can add amps using the preamp outputs.

They use the term "Master/Slave", but it's only in that the first amp (the 500/5) controls the signal that goes to the other units. Doesn't have anything to do with strapping to get more power.

Check the manual on page 24... ;)

Its my fault.

I read the manual, and perceived it to say that you can connect a 250/1 to it and get double the amplifier power. Maybe because that's what I wanted it to do.

Wow I can't believe it!

So many people want a decent 5ch...and your price is right.

Sorry for the misinformation in the past on this one, hope it hasn't affected your sale. I simply read and inferred the manual incorrectly.
