    For the most part you get what you pay for.<br />Try to find a good sale on a higher quality amp.<br />Lanzar Vibe, US Acoustics, Profile Clarus are decent cheap amps.<br />In the case of not having much money for equipment, be very particular in how it is installed. Lower quality components CAN sound good if set up correctly.

    Hello,<br /> You'd be better off with Jensen amplifiers or Profile rather than settling for those legacy amplifiers. You can get a good amp for cheap. You may want to even go with the ebay or ubid route to try and get a cheap price. Bottom line is try to stay away from brands like legacy or pyramid. You won't be happy with the sound quality and the output it presents, and will be dissappointed with them.

    Yea. Jensen are very good cheap amps. I had a pair of Jensens for some time running 2 8's for a time and 2 12's for the latter part of their service to me. I also higly recommend Kenwood's entry level amps. Very powerful and pretty **** cheap too. Steer clear of Legacy and Pyramid. Lots of problems. (Out of JcWhitney?) Another point to take into consideration is what TYPE of sub you're driving. If you're driving some low-end Pyramid or Pyle sub, the good amps will melt the voice coils in those subs like the Snickers bar your uncle sat on. Match quality to quality and crap to crap. It's the only way to play.



    If you've got pants on, you're doin' alright.
