    Over priced equipment.

    It is overrated, meaning you will never see near rated power. Better can be found.

    Re: need your guy's opinions on an amp.....

    you'ld be lucky to get 100rms from that. i used to have an old jensen amp to power my 6x9's, and when my sub amp blew it temporarilly became my sub amp.
    well i decided to replace the jensen for something more powerful, and being as young as i was i bought this amp. well i tell you my jensen rated at 200rms blew this amp out of the water as far as power went. i instantly took ti back for a refund. STAY AWAY.

    Re: need your guy's opinions on an amp.....

    well I need an amp in the same price range, and NOT a Hifonics Brutus 1606d. Everytime I ask for an amp recommendation, that one is always the one that comes up. I need something for around $150-$180. Thanx

    No. Stay away from legacy, pyle, sony, pyramid, dhd, volfenhag...

    The output numbers are fake. They make them up so n00bs like yourself think they are getting a deal.

    I have a LA1990 if you want it. It's a strong amp

    Check the FS section for something used...even post a WTB on what you need...I guarantee you will find something a lot nicer and more reliable than those amps man. BTW, ignore the sig

    what is the rms that you are looking for. bnib in that price range aint gonna buy alot. you may get some decent power but reliability and features will be lacking.

    Re: need your guy's opinions on an amp.....

    If you must gamble at Ikesound, I must admit i did gamble at ikesound. Look at the usamps i/s 2200, it puts out a rated 700w at 4 ohm, probably more, and it sells for 125+19.95 to ship. I do not think you are going to get any better actual power for dollar than that, especially at 4 ohms.
