Bottom Line:   
I currently own a very nice XAT-440Q.. I wouldn't call the Amp mint, due to a couple of surface scratches and a slight dark spot about 2" long were some dude who should have had a kick in the ass put on what was like a sticker for a poison control center! anyway its off now and the glue left a slightly dark impression.. But obviously some of these reviews were written along time ago,12-13 years ago... Hopefully someone out there needs a Beast,i have a survivor

i own a sherwood xat 440q, 2 xat 240q (one still brand new in the box), and a 1141 also new in the box. i am 32 now. i remember a sherwood show truck that made the cover of Truckin magazine back when i was 14 or 15. it used their new at the time xat q line in this show vehicle. they touted them as being bullet proof. i wanted them soooo bad. 2 years later i came across an audio clearance catalog that had a ton of brand new old stock audio. i received for xmas that year the 440 and one of the 240s. retail on the 440 was 660 more than 15 years ago. i knew nothing about them then but knew if they were showcased in truckin they must be good. i researched and found that the bp series and the xat (without the q) were their predecessors and are regarded as being great amps. the xat q line is sherwoods flagship line and the company was sold after these models were made. nothing has compared since. i have never tried the bp line but i did get my hands on a 440 xat. it was built and looked very similar to its q brother but it was not the same. i have and have had many many amps over the years. nothing has sounded as good as my xat qs. i would never sell them and am looking for more. very very hard to find. if you do find them they are beat to hell. if you have a chance to get your hands on these buy them or email me and let me know.

Sherwood is old school. Ther new sherwood stuff is under name targam but this review is for old school Sherwood. I've got 20 years experience repairing electronics includiong car amps. Ive seen alot of amps in all different sizes and the sherwood line are very strong and versatile usually capable of 2,3,4 channels with Xover and independant channel level controls. The amps are not the best out there but for the money is you can find one you wont be disappointed. As for what others say about Sherwood being over rated - LOL, being a repairman I know what transistor power are installed in them and the RMS ratings stamped on the top of Sherwood is actual not peak like the cheapies the kids are buying today.

Great amp! Pushed my pair of Rockford Fosgate Power subs(the ones with them huge chrome magnets and 4" voice coils). It was powerful enough to make them flutter although Rockford claims them to handle 600W RMS and 1200 Peak. This amp runs really clean and strong and I highly recommend anyone to get their hands on one. I also own a XAT-440Q and that thing is a beast! Both amps are my collector's items and would love to find more of these. Don't let the name fool you because these are old amps and are not really well known.

Bottom Line:   
This Sherwood amp is large, but has the power to compensate for it's size. It is a very simple amp. With the essentials for a 4 channel amp; SUB EQ, and Parallel Input. I used this amp to power a 12" sub(capable of handling 100W RMS), and it's 170W RMS output was certainly enough to burn the speaker. Only at half power, the speaker was having trouble not bottoming out. People say sherwood is a crappy name brand, distorts, and over-rates it's products. But apparently those people know nothing. I searched for Sherwood online, and there isn't much about the company, they are very rare, and this is my first time in contact with them. Perhaps those people are thinking of Sherwood hockey sticks? ;o) Anyways, I just know this is a great amp, and it's worth the money.
