Welcome Darin!

Would you still recommend the BKA? I would think that with how they took care of you, that people should still consider buying from them.
Hi Ex! Based on my experience alone, certainly. It's a lot of amp for the money, and good support goes a long way. The only hesitation I would have would be if this particular amp had a much greater chance of something like this happening vs. the competition. As much as you may like the product or the company, you still don't want to burn down your house. Someone in the other thread mentioned that this has happened to other people, but I haven't researched it, so I don't know for fact that such a situation is much more likely with the BK than othe rproducts. So at this point, I can't say that I'd caution people against the BK. BUT, I will say at this point, I may become a little less complacent about proximity of my equipment to combustibles and leaving my equipment on when I'm not home, regardless of the brand.

Re: Scary thread about Buttkicker Amps

My EP2500 only manages 5 degrees F above ambient even with a wimpy fan.

It wouldn't boil an egg or make decent toast let alone burn a burger.

Should I send it back?
