    I know what you mean!

    Still faithfully run 2 Punch 150's (3rd gen from 1989, just before the HD models). Definately at least double the 'stated rated power output'

    Well..talking about amp repair, it became harder to DIY fix with the HD's because of the lack of the 4 internal protection fuses not being used in favor of surface mount modules. On the other hand, performance was better they stated, but don't know personally because never had.

    I owned one of those when they first came out to power a pair of tweeters. Sadly, Rockford Fosgate had that amp longer than I did because it kept going back for repair, over and over again. I ended up giving it to a friend of mine because I was tired of having it act up once a month.

    Re: car amp repair man.....

    I think they were makin amps that were just to good and they knew it...Both the power and the punch series amps were virtually indestructable because of those 20 cent fuses(not sayin it never happened) but they were solid as hell! and as long as were on it might as well throw in the pro series subs! I had 2 pro 15's in a 280z on a bridged power 300 with another power 300 running 4 channel mode on 2 pairs of boston pro 5.0's....even at moderate volume levels you couldnt see out of the car in any direction unless u rolled the windows down.To me whatever they said the HD's could do better didnt matter...I was through with rockford at the intro of the HD's....but then again..I had a death grip on my cassette tapes for quite some time too...

    Same here & still have them..mostly all bass, but don't use them in favor of CD's & Sirius Radio. Matter of Fact, still use a Clarion 9772RT Magi-Tune pull out cassette deck with a Sony CD Diskman. Have the option of playing both tapes & CD's. The Clarion 9772RT was rated #1 out of 4 tested in the August 1991 issue of CA&E

    Re: car amp repair man.....

    I'm looking for projects...If anyone has any OLD class AB (or a class A would be nice) 2 channel amps...that are broken and you want to get rid of them..let me know...
    [email protected]

    I'd be really interested in BOSS AUDIO form the american series if anyone has any of them layin around...but I havent seen any in years....

    I would like to say sorry..I was thinkin BOSS american series in my original post and I for some reason called it pyramid..it was a long time ago when I had those boss amps....they were so so nice and the regular BOSS audio stuff from asia was pure junk...

    I am a major ZED AUDIO fan and I dont think they EVER made ANY pyramid amps....The BOSS american series was a ZED made amp...
