So, my FP14K clone arrived today and I have been playing with it off an on for a few hours (nice to work from home)
I was worried about paying duties but it got delivered to my box at the UPS store without a problem.
I haven't changed any settings and don't think i really need to at the moment. (still building my Q15 LLT)
but i plan to just use one channel of the amp for it. (4Ohm)
just some notes.
it came pretty quick, 7 days from payment, shipped out of Hong Kong. It looks like DHL/customs does their work on that end because the tracking was showing lots of activity in HK before it left for the states.
Check out #s 1-6 in the tracking history below (reads bottom up)

Packaging was very good. double boxed and then another thick piece of cardboard top and bottom.
I ordered the quite fans SUNON according to JT.
Its not terribly loud right now but its noisy in my office so i can't tell. I have to see what it sounds like where its final placement will be at night to see if it bothers me.
The fans start up loud and then after a few seconds they slow down. I assume its a heat dependent circuit controlling the fan speed. Not sure if the ones you guys did the fan mods on did the same thing or it was static speed.
I don't have any drivers laying around that can take the full power of this thing but I did drive both channels to the driver limits of a few subs I had laying around and all seems to work well testing both channels.
I'll take some pics of the inside as soon as I get a chance.
