    Soundstream Tarantula amps...

    Anybody have experience with these? How do they perform?

    It came with a 300 amp alternator !! I mean, you know you have a huge amp when it comes with its own alternator !! Sound quality was spectacular, although I don't know what subs he had (It was last year and they were subs I'd never seen before - 2x12s). I don't have a whole lot of experience with it, but it was definitely impressive ...

    He said that he paid almost $5000 Canadian for it, so I think he got ripped off, but still a very, very impressive amplifier ...
    The 5K canadian figures out to about what you should expect to pay here...

    And well... defining sound quality with 2kW of output or more in an enclosed vehicle is an uphill battle...

    They are a very large a/b hybrid design that in and of itself is not very efficient, the 300A alternator is no gimick, as you'll need the power to try and properly supply the pig.

    Hmm, interesting. Makes me wish I had a higher paying job than the ****** warehouse job I have now. Maybe I should look into getting a warehouse job for a car audio distributor.....

    Hey jlaine - in the next 3 or 4 weeks i'm gonna be looking to buy Brahma 12 or 15 - can you give me some contact info with prices and shipping info? Thanks
