    Old rockford amp, new Pyramid super blue amps

    I have an old Rockford Fosgate 200x2 amp.. manf in about 1997..?

    Anyways, I am trying to figure out the exact RMS values it puts out, as I have heard they are underrated...

    According to the specs it is:
    100x2 @ 4ohm
    200x2 @ 2ohm
    400x1 @ 2ohm


    Also, I have a chance to pick up a SET of Pyramid pb446x (Super Blue w channel 600 watt) amps for fairly cheap. Will a SET of these outperform my rockford? What are the RMS output values? There doesnt seem to be very much info on the web about them.

    Its either that or I could find another Pyramid pb480.. I have one running a set of JL 10w04's at 1ohm stable.. I didnt know the amp had it in it??

    8-)

    Thanks for any info.

    BTW, the 10w04's will not be the subs I will be running. They belong to my brother.

    Erm, I know a lot of people don't like RF's anymore, but I'm sure they will perform better than Pyramids...

    Yes, personally, I believe rockford's are awesome... explains a fair bit on why all my stuff is RF's... but people diss RF's a lot, saying the new ones aren't that good.. whatever it is, it soudns good to me, and the decals add a nice touch...

    If I had the money to buy a matching amp, or could find one for that matter (have only ever seen one other, and have no clue where it is now..) I would go that route.

    Any experiences with the pb446x anyone?

    Hey, I never said they would be the best.. lol 8-)

    300RMS @ 2ohms per amp would be decent, though.. comparred to the rockford.. I think i'll give em a try when I get the chance, unless something else comes up.

    Thanks for the opinions and whatnot.. I can always build a dirty 110v ac -> 12v dc converter and run them in the house for some 10's/12's and stuff.. heh.

    Yeah he does seem quite stuck on getting the pyramid

    Your RF is a better and much higher quality amp...the pyramids suffer from bad wiring, over heating and poor sq...

    the rockford is going to my brother.

    If I can, I will pick up another pyramix pb480. I already have one, and it has been running 1ohm on a set of 10w04's for quite some time.. no overheating problem or anything.

    Maybe I just got a good amp, but I told my brother I would give him the rockford.. im too nice 8-/

    If you guys can suggest another amp that will do 300 watts RMS at 2ohms bridged for $130CDN or so, im open to suggestions.

    Your fosgate amp is rated between 240-260 per channel at 2 ohms. I had several (still have one) of those amps back in the day. And as for your pyramid amps that you seem to be hooked on

    Thanks for any info.

    BTW, the 10w04's will not be the subs I will be running. They belong to my brother.
