Just to start heres the amp Im talking about:
2 channel, crossover, q-bass, etc.
300X2 @ 2ohms
600X1 @ 4ohms
(these are official PPI specs)
I recently came into ownership of this amplifier for an incredible price. My sister got it from an insurance claim and its been sitting at my parents house for a couple years in the box never used. So I picked it up for 100 dollars. Question is, how good is this amp? I know PPI is a top notch brand but how good is this series/amp if anyone knows. The reason I ask is because I know I got a killer deal on it and I know I could sell it for some extra money. Then use this extra money to get a whole new setup (amp and subs). I figure if I sell the amp for 250-300 (already had offers) then I can pick up a good 200 dollar amp (JBL, Audiobahn, PG, etc.) and a sub (or subs) and come out better in the end. So heres my first question:
Should I sell this amp and if so what should I ask for it?
Ok now for the second part. If it is worth it to unload the PPI for some extra cash flow, what should I do from there. I'll use 300 dollars as my spending cap for the new stuff. For the amps I've been looking at a few specific brands. I like what I hear about the JBL power series amps, the Audiobahn DigitalAudio series and Phoenix Gold Octance series. For the sub(s) I really like Kicker Squares. I was thinking about a single L5 12. Also, I've heard good things about Infinity for better SQL. As of right now I have 2 Pioneer 305 DVC 12's. I hooked up the PPI to them and it sounds allright but I want a little more. This is why Im thinking over all this. So my final questions are.
Whats the best I can get for 300?
How much better will this sound than my current setup? (with the Pioneers and the PPI)
Well, I guess thats it. Any advice on what to do about my situation would be greatly appreciated. And please be honest, I would prefer that cuz if its worth keeping the amp I'll hang on to it. Also, I'm rusty on my car audio so if you do think I should sell and upgrade let me know if my suggestions are any good or tell me your own if you think its better =)
Thanks in advace!
