    Re: Need info on an old school orion amp!!!!!

    That generation was well sought after, yet that amp itself was not top of the food chain.Not really a cheater amp per say,but it is rare due to being a 6ch, and was the only one made during that era,that I can remember.It was rated at 11.6v, so you should see a bit more than the 20rms per ch at the 13.6v and some,as it has an unregulated supply.Safe to say 50rms,and very clean,very little TDH, around 0.02%.It would be a very nice amp to put on Mids and Highs, of approx 75rms,and excellent for those that compete in MECA.Depending on how clean your amp is, a collector may pay up to the $200 range as ebay.Be agreat amp for tweets, and midrange in an active setup.Throw some pics up of the amplifier,it is always nice to see a bit of history on here.Some one may even throw you up an offer? Never know

    Re: Need info on an old school orion amp!!!!!

    Neat amp for sure, not a cheater but a perfect amp for a collector. 6x20, 6x40 at 2 ohms, or 3 x 80 bridged at 4 ohms, built in 12dB / octave butterworth filter, active crossovers. All mosfet class AB output section. 110 dB S/N ratio. Good stuff. Whatever you do, I would not push a GT series hard. A couple 220GT's were the only amps I've ran that kept boomeranging back to Orion for repairs. If I had one now I'd only run doors at 4 ohms, get a GX or SX for the heavy work.

    ....except for the 2150SX, don't run those on subs. You'll want to PM me so I can run it on subs, still need a couple more ya see

    Re: Need info on an old school orion amp!!!!!

    when you do, be sure to follow the rules/form and have user name in pic with amp, and a price, even an "obo" price. this isn't ebay



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks
