Default MB Quart ONX4.125

Well one of my Black Friday deals arrived today. MB Quart ONX4.125 from Amazon for the awesome price of $129.99 shipped. I picked it up on the way to work so no pics yet. Will open her up when I get home for some gut shots.

As for initial opinion

The good:
Amp is very heavy and solid feeling
Solid power and speaker wire terminals
Controls have a nice tactile feel
Real stunner in the looks department

The bad:
Cheapish plastic end caps/mounting feel
Owners manual is pretty light on info
Was missing the mounting hardware

Over all really happy with it at this point. Will up date when I get the ONX1.1500 in and both installed.

For less than $275 I have 5 channels!!

Because they have plastic mounting feet!!!

No but really I love my Onyx 1500.1 I just hate the fact they used plastic for the mounting feet and 2ga. Inputs if the odd size wasn't enough they are at an angle making it even harder to get 1/0 wire to fit...

Still planning on getting a second Onyx 1500.1 and Onyx 125.4

Any chance you can do clamp tests on the two? My concern with the ONX1.1500 is this:

ONX1.1500 guts:


DSC1500.1D guts:


The DSC has been clamped to do 1500 all day, but as you can see the internals are far superior in the DSC also.

Here is a better picture of the 1500.1 guts...

I could clamp mine but it would be with one of those $9.99 clamp meters from HarborFreightTools so idk how accurate it would be lol

Wow, thanks for the pix! I'm still debating on whether to opt for the Q's or head w/ a PDX5. I wish there was more "German" MB Quart layin' around rather than Maxsonnics, but I think I'm going to give em a shot.

After seeing the guts of the ONYX line, I'm so glad I stayed away from them. Nowhere near as beefy as the DSC line.

Nice 1st post! Yeah, I'm glad you stayed away from them too - more for us who wouldn't disregard them solely on guts pics. I'm curious as to what you went with instead. And where did you do your shopping, ampguts.com?

Oh yeah...Welcome to the forum. Seriously
