Does the Jl audio 1000/1 amp clip when you turn the gain up high or is that only with cheap amps?

yes...if you turn the gain up to high your amp will clip.

some amps have soft clipping curcuits that limit clipping, but i dont thing the 1000/1 has that.

yea, clipping is not a flaw that amplifier manufactures can avoid with good design. Amplifers need to have variable gains to ensure that no matter how weak the input voltage is (to a point), you can still drive the amp to its rated power. Like marshall said, some amps will tell you when they are clipping and possibly limit it, but the fact that a given amp can be driven into clipping is not a statement as to whether its a good amp or not.
