    Autotek?

    I'm not a pro at car audio by any means, and i was wondering how this brand was.

    Are they like Lanzar and Pyle and that kind of ****, or are they a reputable, good quality brand?

    i found a SM1-1500 on craigslist for 75 dollars and was wondering on if you guys think its a dope deal or not.

    Thanks in advance.

    They will give you about hallf the max power. They are good budget amps. LANZAR is ****** with all their lines but opti.

    I personally own the Autotek mean machine series amplifiers and they easily put out rated power if not more on even better electrical.

    not all of them are crap fyi

    Autotek is currently owned by Maxxsonics. The Mean Machine series is good, does rated, but the other lines are a bit questionable.

    I had a mean machine 4000. running 2 18" re mt's at 1 ohm daily.... it held up fine.. obviously wasnt pushing them to their limits but only because those woofers can take a beating. lol.. Autotek is a good brand but i wouldnt go with anything other than the older mean machine models.... you can contact maxxonics and they have refurbished mean machines in stock for a pretty good price.. but i would do it soon before they run out.
