I wouldn't buy a boss amp for any reason, with the possible exception of a boat anchor.
their amps have a strong tendancy to fail within a year of purchase, much like Sony.
they are also very poorly made.

Glasswolf I would recommend Boss amps to anyone who has LEGACY,PYRAMID,PYLE,JENSEN,SONY,or AMERICAN PRO SUBS cuz its pointless to waste a good amp on crap subs so why not get a Boss amp.

ehh I wouldn't recommend any of those products either.
I usually suggest they sell the stuff if they did already buy it, or try to educate them on better equipment if they are willing to learn.
Some folks don't know any better... others are ignorant by choice or just cheap i guess.
I help the ones I can :-)

hey i'm interested in 1 audiobahn AW1208T good or bad? i need an amp to push it, i don't want to spend over 250$. also the audiobahn has DVC 2ohms each, is that 2ohms or 4ohms total load on the amp. I looked at a Boss R3000D. That looks like enough to push it but i hear mixed opinions.

I think Boss give more bang with less buck, I think it's good to buy R 3000 D, but if U have more money it's good to take fosgate,MTX,or anything branded product, because the lifetime of your equipment, U know money can't lie, but salesman does!

refer to the above link regarding if a product brand is any good or not.
audiobahn isn't that good.
boss is total crap.
RF isn't that good either these days. MTX however, does make good amplifiers.

sounddomain is overpriced and has about a 50% bad review rate as a retailer.

as for Boss, I wouldn't recommend buying anything they make.
reliability is about on par with Sony.
