JL Audio Slash Series V3 1200 W

Wow. This amp has its origins in one of JL’s most legendary amplifiers, and this amp builds on the technology that has made JL’s name synonymous with quality automotive audio.

Whilst this is not the most powerful amp we are reviewing today, it more than makes up for this with sound quality. In truth, most people will be hard pushed to make use of the 1200 W delivered here in any case, meaning that getting a 1600 W monster of an monoblock amp is somewhat pointless.

That said, this amp is 20% more powerful than the previous editions in the Slash Series, and delivers huge volume when paired with the correct speakers. The circuitry that forms the heart of this amp is patented, and is built using the latest high quality materials and high tech manufacturing methods, meaning that it will go on delivering great sound for years to come.

In addition, of course, this Pioneer amp comes with a variety of other advantages:

PROS
  • The serious audiophiles we spoke to for this review praised this amp as the best way to start a serious car audio system. It is not the cheapest available, but what you get for your money is quite incredible – the power offered by this amp means that even if you decide to upgrade your speakers, or add a subwoofer, at a later date, you will not have to change your amp!
  • All of the Slaah Series v3 models feature JL Audio’s patented RIPS (Regulated Intelligent Power Supply) technology. This is a marvel of technology, being able to adjust to various input voltages and output impedances, and always maintaining the correct driving current. If you are a fan of obscure speakers, and need an amp that will adjust to them, this is the one to get!
  • The thermal protection on this amp is, as you would expect, second to none. Even if you live in the desert, and plan to take a long, hot roadtrip this summer, the amp will keep going for hours without overheating. This means that your music will keep playing even in the most demanding conditions, and also that you do not have to worry about frying your amp if you push the volume up!
  • Serious audiophiles will claim not to care, but this amp looks great! Mount it somewhere prominent in your vehicle, so that you can easily show off to your friends!
CONS
  • In truth, none. If you are looking for a powerful amp that is small enough to fit in even the tiniest vehicle, this is the one to get. Highly recommended for those who are starting a serious vehicle audio set up!
