We got great results with CM Amplifiers as well. We were using JL Audio and Marantz and in both cases The Critical MASS Amplifiers performed better.(however 2 guys out of 5 say they cant hear the difference) But they both bought Critical MASS Amplifiers from the rep :) Waitin for my UL12 eek
So what if I bought The Critical MASS Amplifiers. I still say I heard no difference between your old school Marantz and the CM Amps, The CM amplifiers were louder. I still say the Best Amp I heard is the Butler 4x75 Tube Amp! If it was not because the Butler cant handle the hard ride from my Boxster S Sport I would have kept it. That being said I'm happy with the Critical MASS amplifirs they perform perfectly even in my Porsche.

I use the critical mass speakers in my 2011 camry and they fit perfect in the front doors '' rs69 '' and the '' ss69 '' at the rear deck. i am just using one amplifier at this time, ula800 v2.0 for all 4 6x9's and the 2 dash speakers. later on i want to add a sub amp and a small sealed box for some extra bump.
I got the Ula800v2 with the same CM Speakers you got {RS in the front and SS CMs in the rear} setup and 2 x SS82 Critical MASS Subs. Did not have the money for the Sub amp. So I called CM and they told me how to use 2 channels on the 4 speakers and bridge the rear 2 channels for the SUB. I'm no competitor but sounds awesome. Best system I ever owned.

Yo Andy! Anyone who ever heard a UL12 and ULA2500 knows what you are talking about:)
I was lucky enough to have the combo until my car got broken into.
I love the CM amplifiers they are the cleanest sounding Amplifiers I have ever owned. By the way that show truck at the Auto show this year was awesome. It had the amps with UL12s and it was a show stopper. http://youtu.be/ee0IvEWqk2o
Had the UL12 with a ULA2500v2 and it was AWESOME. Perfect combo for my ride. light weight / high output / and clear as can be. If wasnt for bad economy I would still have them :(

i am 49 years old, and worked in many hi-end stereo shops in the west coast... we used critical mass audio amps in many of out top dollar installations since 1993. the attention to detail and the quality of the product is second to none! the critical mass amplifiers and speakers last longer than most cars... we use many other top brands, and most are very good, but the critical mass UL12 is by far the best speaker ever made.

Yeah High Performance Cars are one of the Main reasons for people paying more for Critical MASS.

No stereo shops use critical mass, they use high quality brands. So if you were using critical mass amps in customers cars you were ripping off your customers. Care to tell us what shops install critical mass so i can steer clear of them?

Without a doubt the best Subwoofer ever made.
As much SPL as a 100LB Subwoofer (up to 154db tested) and the Best Sounding Subwoofer ever tested by the Car Audio Bible (Car Audio & Electronics Magazine) Not to mention the only Subwoofer worthy of being part of the best Car Audio system ever. The Critical MASS UL12 subwoofer weighs only 16lbs and works in enclosures as small as 0.25qft!
Here are the links you requested.

the critical mass amplifiers sound great, they are a bit expensive, but i wanted the best in my new corvette c6. i went with the critical mass ula800 v2.0 and the ula2500 v2.0 , one was for the 2 subwoofers and the 4ch was for all the vocals... it sounds real good and very very loud when you crank it up!!! great speakers and amplifiers.

If you want to feel sick to your stomach because you have been ripped off, buy a critical mass amplifier. At the very least go to some car audio forums and ask about these amps, they are very well known ripoffs. These amps are nothing but entry level quality amps, extremely cheaply made, chinese amps (maybe assembled in the usa, but parts are chinese). So buy a critical mass amp at your own peril. If I could do it over I would have bought either an audison thesis, brax, or tru technology amp that doesnt share a build house with garbage chinese POS amps.

The critical Mass Audio amplifiers are made in the USA, and they are one of the best amplifiers in the world... I have used these amplifiers in my shop for years. The Critical Mass amps last and last, well built and sound great!!! If you want the very best, Critical Mass Audio is it... by the way they also make the best speaker in the WORLD,''THE CRITICAL MASS UL12'' the Best!

I actually heard this car at SEMA. wow. unbelievable tech. they gave us all a 5 minute listening demo to show the sound quality and the ability to have 4x 5.1 surround sound in the same car at the same time without interfering with one another. cool as heck and it was easily the best sounding car audio system I ever heard.(THAN AGAIN FOR $259,000 IT BETTER BE)
it was exactly as the review, just awesome...

Google "critical mass is a ripoff". I started that thread on diymobileaudio.com . I actually opened up the amp and took pictures of the insides of not only the ula2500-v2, but also the ul800-v2. You will clearly see they are nothing special at all, all junk parts. The amplifiers MAY be assembled in the usa, but all the parts are off the shelf korean or chinese. One of the Critical mass employees even came on that thread and started spamming all the ads, I mean literally spammed a few pages in that thread, he was banned from the forum and all his spam was erased by the good moderatrs on the forum. So you see these critical mass employees are just sleazy, sneaky and scantless. They wont even let you return a critical mass amp for a refund if you dont like it, even if it hasnt been unboxed.

I have used CM products for years as well.
I believe this quote said it best (And its all true not my opinion actually happened this way)
"Critical MASS is a Car Audio company whose Super-
Fi electrostatics have made a serious impact in the world of
high-end mobile sound ever since the early 1990s. Critical
Mass was formed by one of Car Audio's first innovators and
most influential people in our industry who actually started
the world's first Car Audio and enhancement school back
in the late 1980s. From this school Critical MASS was started
in Orlando, FL, in 1990. They have been leading the way
to max performance hi-fi on the road with their $259,000
CES 5.1 one of a kind ESL system. Not only does Critical
MASS make the most advanced car audio system in the
world, but this system is so good that it is now the reference
surround sound car audio system. Car Audio Magazine
tested the least expensive part of the system (CES5.1) ESL
system the UL12 (MSRP $1999.00) and called it "the Perfect Sub",
and "the BEST" and added that it was so good that he would
sell a few things to own one because it's worth every dollar!
In addition the Critical MASS UL12 is rated #1 over all other
Subwoofers including woofers made by companies such as
JL Audio, Image Dynamics, Alpine, Xtant, Kicker, Arc Audio,
MB Quart, Digital Designs, Cerwin-Vega, Orion, Phoenix Gold and
Earthquake (October Issue Car Audio and Electronics).
Car Audio & Electronics. Imagine how good the rest of the system
must sound if the least expensive part of it is the world's BEST
subwoofer! "
links bellow show what the quote states.
