    Sony XM-2501

    I just can't pass up a good deal... So I bought this.




    Now, what to do with it....

    2 options.

    1) Sell it.
    2) Bridge my eclipse to the cdt's in front and use it for a couple of 2 ohm mids in the rear on a bandpassed frequency range. Don't know if it would be powerful enough, though.

    Decent little amp. Not as special as the ES, but still will sound nice. I wouldn't pay more than $20/30 for it.

    I like these amps, I would just use them in budget builds, but that's just me.

    Got it for 15... So if it's only worth 20-30, I'll just have fun with it. Or give a friend/family member a lil set of bumps with an 8". In the meantime, I'll play with it and see what it does.

    Thanks! It was actually your past comments/praise of sony's non-explod stuff that made me decide to pick it up. Plus it was super cheap, lol.

    Yeah. Like I said, not a bad little amp, but don't expect TOO much from it. While it was most like made in Japan, it was their entry level amp for the time.
