    300 watt rms 2 channel amp money not a problem

    alright i am looking to get rid of my 600.4 hot as a mother amp and get something that won't go into thermal protect on me. i want 300watts rms by 2 at 4 ohm. i know that limits myself down to a few selections but money isn't an issue as of now i'll just save for it and buy one. i was thinking zapco, jl something like that any suggestions welcome. except for PG you suggest PG i will laugh at you j/k i just think PG needs to update there stuff and turn down the price.

    does it have to be 300x2, or can it be 600x1...whats your plans?

    the usa600 is 600 watts rms @ 2 ohm mono, and the usa600x is 600 @ 4 ohm...although they typically put out about 1.5x the power of what theyre rated.

    http://www.usamps.com/products/inv/usa-600.htm

    there are some other ******* amps there too. im getting the usa2000 here when i get the money to do it.

    if youre gonna do 100-175 each, then why do you want 300x2? you arent bi-amping them, are you?

    gonna pitch the MB's in the back doors run only my canton comps and pitch the RF amp b/c it goes into thermal protect every 20min or so kinda pisses me off ya know. so i'm thinking a good 300watt 2 channel amp to run them will work fine.

    you have room in the trunk for your current amp? if so, you could trunk mount it, get it up off the mounting surface slightly (1/4" bushings or something), and put a fan on it, and that would save you some money, but if you HAVE to get a new amplifier, i guess you just HAFTA.

    agreed...............USAmps does sound like a good idea, but I would also look at GENESIS (ENGLISH, very very very high quality SQ amp), Zapco does sound like a good idea ( cos Im getting one ), but also, and I think importatly, try to get hold of LinearPower amps - they will not disappoint............they dont look nothing specal but the 6 year warranty and te phrase "looks ca be deceiving" was made for this amp.........if ure really interested speak to EarCandy on termpro-he works for them and is a great dude

    hey jtmoney are you saying in your post that you have a 600.4 or are looking to get one?? one thing to warn you about from personal experiece is those suckers get really hot really fast, now it may also be that i have my comps bridged to 2 channel's on the amp and they are 4 ohm speakers but wouldn't that give me the 300x2 @4ohm?? i thought it would i might be wrong. yeah i think i'm gonna keep this amp and when i make my amp rack in the tailgate area which will be on the back of my box right near the back window, i will prolly just put like 2 or 3 fans back there to push hot air out.

    I don't have as much experience with you guys, but with my $.00002 I can be able to recomend you a Brax amp... I just heard one of them, a 4 channel hooked up to 2 sets of Dynaudio 3 way comp.... It just pounded hard, soft, high but crystal clear...

    well not to be rude but i personally haven't and never ever in a million years will buy an alpine product. personally i do not like anything they make and won't ever touch their stuff. i know it can be good but i don't like it.
