    Re: anybody know about old-school autotek amps?

    Street machine was their lower end line and iirc it is 75x2 at 4 ohms.

    As far as what its worth thats tough to answer cuz its worth different amounts to different people. I would say in the neighborhood of 50 or so. maybe a little more/less.

    Re: anybody know about old-school autotek amps?

    ya, this is what the guy at autotek told me but im not sure if he told me right or if i wrote it down wrong or something cuz it doesnt sound right.

    2 X 75 @ 4

    Mono bridged it does 150 @ 4

    they said to only run it down to 2 ohm stereo and not below 4 ohm bridged, but it being an older autotek im sure it can run lower then that.


    But shouldnt it be more like this..

    2x75@4ohms
    2x150@2ohms
    1x300@4ohms

    Re: anybody know about old-school autotek amps?

    The street machines did not double their power. I think it was like 100 or so at 2 ohms. And I would definitely not run it below 2 ohms stereo.

    i didnt mean double its power, but why is it rated at 300 watts if it wont even do half that? Shouldnt it do 300 watts at 4 ohm bridged?

    That would mean it doubles its power from 4 ohms to 2 ohms. It doesnt. I believe they are tightly regulated. The mean machines from that generation didnt even double power from 4 ohms to 2 ohms. And the 300 watts is im sure some random max number

    Re: anybody know about old-school autotek amps?

    hmm, well sht, that kinda *****. So i guess the specs i have for it are pretty true then. Do you think i will see any gain from 4 - 2 ohm? I mean, knowing the era of this amp what would you say the specs would be?

    Yes you will see a jump from 4 to 2 and its going to be a little underrated also. Will you be able to hear a difference? Maybe, maybe not but Autoteks have always had a little different way of rating their amps. It is a good little amp for what it is though. I was a huge fan of the mean machines and even the bass thrust series that were before that.

    No problem. I wouldnt hesitate to run it, just dont run it below two ohms and it will last.

    I just don't remember that particular amp, but if it was made with the old "bass thrust series" amps I would say it was a goodun'
