Pioneer GM-D8601 Review

Lastly, a great monoblock amp. Pioneer made their name producing subwoofer amps with huge power, and this one is no exception. Delivering a huge 1,600 W over a single channel, when paired with a killer subwoofer it has to be heard to be believed.

And even running at maximum output, the bass response stays crisp and clean. There is nothing worse than a subwoofer that goes to pieces at high volumes, and with this one you can be sure that even when you are blasting out the bass you will still be able to distinguish the track.

PROS
  • One huge advantage that this monoblock amp shares with all of the amps in its class is that having a monoblock amp powering your subwoofer significantly improves sound quality.
  • Especially when you are pushing a huge 1,600 W through your amp, the bleed between channels can produce a significant amount of electronic noise. This amp is impressively shielded, meaning that even turned up there is no discernible hiss.
  • The electronic protection on this Pioneer amp is great, consisting of two 40 amp fuses, designed to protect the circuitry of the amp should something go amiss in your vehicle’s electrics.
CONS
  • In truth, none that we can see. If you are looking for an monoblock amp powerful enough to drive even the largest subwoofers, this is the one.
