Pioneer GM 6300F
Advantages: Cheap, reliable and a good sound
Disadvantages: Heavy, bit flimsy in places
Sometimes you just need a bit more and where car audio is concerned, that can only mean one thing - an amplifer. As I seem to spend a lot of time in my car, good audio is essential. With my experiences with Pioneer, they were always going to be one of my first choices for fulfilling my requirements. And so I have the Pioneer GM 6300F.
The four channel unit can deliver a maximum of 600 watts across your speakers with a signal to noise ratio of 95dB. You can set that up as either 2 x 300 watts or 4 x 150 watts. Frequency response is measured at 10Hz - 50Hz with a total harmonic distortion of less than .01%. It is a really compact unit measuring 300mm x 60mm x 334mm so fitting it under a front seat is possible although at 3.9kg it will need to be secured well to avoid problems in accidents.
It is fairly economical in terms of power with a maximum consumption of 35amps. It is durable and well built and in the time I have owned it have had no problems. It does not overheat, no noise or vibrations and it has not caused any electrical problems.
Perhaps one of its best selling points is that it is not specific to Pioneer head units, so if like me you were happy with what you have or you are just upgrading piece by piece, then the GM-6300F can be used without the need for buying add on adapters. But as a note of caution, the RCA connections can be a little flimsy.
The unit itself can be described as minimalist in terms of its' shell. It has a classy metal coloured in a mostly matt black but with a brushed steel panel at its' centre. When it is switched on, a neon blue light, located on the left glows.
You can pick one of these up from car audi centre website for £126.99 and it comes with a comprehensive users manual and a 1 year manufacturers guarantee as well as all the features you would need for a total in car audio experience delivering a crystal clear sound to put you in house stereo to shame!!
Summary: An excellent amp to complement any aftermarket car audio.
