I have heard Profile many years ago and they are strticly average. I have not seen them outside crutcfield so it might be their inhouse brand.

thanks everyone.....and specially my Super-guru Navin.....

I was MOVED by this review....gyz need ur attention



Written by nate76, Boise Id on February 12, 2006

This Is the new verson of my amp I have the clarus 1200. Let me say that this is one heck of an amp. I ran 2 Kole Audio KMX 15s In my Blazer. A sealed box 2.67 cuft3 and blew out my back window . I could not believe that i actually blew it out. But this amp will put down some serious power. I ran a fosgate digital 1 farad cap and my lights still dim hard. It has been 3 years now and that amp still runs hard it has over heated about 4 times in 3 years but it was always in the summer about 100 degrees out. I would def buy this amp again. Thanks Profile! And Crutchfield!


i dunno what to say....but my Super-guru (that oldie! LOL!), followed by my Super -II guru (Sam bhai!) and my I-st step guru Gunman would be able to shatter some black clouds (aka rain). Plz dont take these words as in priority.

SIR, KAHAN HAIN AAP!!

cheers!

I-st step guru??? Panky I also want to be a Super-Guru... Waaaaiinnnn... Boooo hooooo hehehe

Crap by any other name... user reviews can be misleading. Shattering out windows???? highly unlikely. Like SuperNavinji said... strictly average!!

I don't know about his audio gear but if he can blow out his windows with the turd that he describes, he sure needs a better car with more secure windows!

Actually, if he said 'Kove' audio instead of 'Kole' Audio, I would probably still believe him.

I'm no guru. I just like people and good sound. really.

I like partying and enjoying life ( By the way i've just finished some pretty HARD partying with "Sideways" in Chennai, who is an absolute stonker)
In my opinion, Navin is the only true enthusiast here. Because he doesnt work for an audio company.
And I'm just plain bloody lucky to work like this.
And hang out with you guys and learn from Navin my old man, JB - Punjab da installer and hamare priya Gunwale Prajee.

Boys and men of my beloved forum, i quote you now the immortal words of our Super-Admin GTO (our very own GTO 7 series)
"Sam, you actually get PAID for this??"

Cadence is a good brand run but very good people. The Shirkes are excellent people. I have a friend in NY who uses 4 Cadence Divas for Home Theater. That the Cadence replaced Soundlab A1s says something. Each amp uses 4 KT88 in paralllel push pull Triode I helped him build them.

Sam's being modest again! :-)

I dont think I am the only enthusiast here. Sam, you forget Vivek and co. I think I may be the OLDEST enthusiast here! :-)

Sam you are mad! A nice, fluffy, cuddly beautiful sort of mad!
