Great product for the money.
Pros: Great features including gain limiting for the sliders, sub harmonics reduction to protect speakers and amps, It produces almost no noise into the system even at max volume. As long as what you push through it is clean that's how it will sound coming out the other end. I highly recommend it. My husband uses these exclusively in his shows as a DJ and live electronic music performer.
Cons: The only thing it lacks in my opinion is a second subwoofer output channel. I realize they figure your going to have your system bridged to mono. While this is true, some of us want to be able to bridge a second amp in and they don't come with a signal through plug like they should. This makes using both my amp's channels loaded to they're minimum ohms rating which is lower than the bridged configuration for obvious reasons.
Other Thoughts: It's easy enough to make a patch cable to enable both channels of the subwoofer amp. I don't think this is something that buyers should have to do in order to effectively use the product to it's full potential. I still gave it five eggs because it's sound quality more than makes up for any of it's downfalls.
