    Shopping for budget amplifier

    I'm looking to buy a cheaper amp for a temp setup, I'm not familiar with MTX amps but any ideas?

    Re: Shopping for budget amplifier

    I have two subs that are 150w RMS at 4ohms and I plan to wire them in parallel to pull 2ohms from the amp. I want to spend as little as I can for a decent amp so I dont wanna spend much more than $100 for a 300-400w amp.

    Re: Shopping for budget amplifier

    i would get some thing that makes more power at 1 ohm that way you leave room to up grade later.trust me 300-400 watts isn't going to work for long .you'll want louder , then you'll have to start all over again. i've seen it time and time again

    Re: Shopping for budget amplifier

    if you want a nice, cheap, 300w amp... here you go:

    punch amp

    rated at 200, but these older fosgate amps are under rated, and some have been clamped at over 300 watts

    im sure you can find something on here for your price range. heck, check your local craigslist. you may be able to find something decent on there for cheap.
