Kinter MA-500 4-Channel Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM 4x30W is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have in info and specsThis came with no power cord/supply. I did not see anywhere where it said "NO POWER CORD". I called and they told me it does NOT come withcord. Sent it back, at my expense, and got an email saying I was getting what looked like a full refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for.Product operates as advertised, but read the description closer and you will see the power supply is sold separately which adds to the cost of the unit. It looks like a well built solid amplifier radio in the photos, but it sounds like tinny garbage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as expected, but......Works as expected, but a L-R and F-R balance control is needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from o. k. amp.I just got this Kinter amp. tuner .It is as described . The FM is weak & has no connector for external connector. The LED muli- colored lights are annoying. color is enough. Tha amp sounds good & has sufficient power for small high effiency speakers. The additional inputs are useful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Choice of power supply is criticalLook at the specs, do the math, 30 Watts X 4 = 120 Watts peak power. This amp requires a 12 volt power supply. If it were 100% efficient it will need a power supply capable of delivering 10 amps at 12 volts to handle audio peaks of 120 Watts, The specs also claim 15 Watts/ch RMS. A 12 Volt 5 Amp power supply may suffice providing that it is regulated up to 10 Amp peaks. Now! the trick is to find a regulated 5 Amp/12 Volt power supply for the same price as the amp. Those 100 Watt bulky receivers are bulky for a reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy install in my RV-sounds great!I was looking for a multichannel amplifier that wouldnt kill my limited budget so I ordered one of these. It is built solid and the sound output is perfect as I have it powering multiple speakers inside my RV with a switch I rigged to power some speakers I mounted under the awning area. All in all I think I saved myself about a hundred dollars by installing this amp. Highly recommend.

What kind of power adapter is needed for car operation

Asked by: tigsgirls
There is no adapter required for a car application, you just need to supply 12 volts to the amp from a power source in the vehicle. You can use a pig tail like below for this.http://www.parts-express.com/parts-express-21mm-x-55mm-x-112mm-dc-plug-with-6-ft-cord--090-489

Random play?  Does it remember where you were on the flash drive when you turned it off?  Do songs need to be in the root, or can they be organized into folders?  Can you hop directly to a folder or song #?

Asked by: Eric Jan Miller
The USB / SD/MMC audio files should be in raw form without folders.

can this drive 2 full range on A outs and a non-powered sub on B outs using R+ & L- or vice versa? will I need a low pass filter? if so, a recommendation?

Asked by: ChemE75
The amp has four separate channels and is not bridgeable. You can use a sub on either the left or right channels using our inline type low pass filters like the Part # 266-446 at (100hz 8 ohm.)
