    Re: Best SQ 4 Channel Amp for $300.00 (Maybe, the last time this question will be ask

    I beg to differ. I sold my Adcom amps so I am not pushing anything. I am not Selling my Audiosystem amp, so once again I am not pushing anything. As a guy who competes in sound quality, I am merely telling you that you can get a much better amp used for $300 than you can new for the same amount. So by your logic, I am unbiased because I am not offering you any products. Though I may be sponsored or nut hug a company. Common sense and logic > You.

    Re: Best SQ 4 Channel Amp for $300.00 (Maybe, the last time this question will be ask

    I have personally thought about an alphasonik pma640 for a while. A lot of people here say they are low end, but i have talked to a few that say those amps do clean rated power. It is a 4x160w amp that will put out 2x160 and 1x960@1ohm for the sub.

    Anyone who says that is confused and ignorant. Alphasonk's are hogs, just like any other A/B high current amp. And you need good electrical to back them up at 1ohm or .5 ohm or they will go down, just like any other amp driven to a low impedance and not backed up by good electrical. They come with a dash mounted voltage meter for a reason...

    I never said you were pushing anyhing, I was just trying to get it out there before it started. If you have nothing to offer, why reply? Dont get me wrong I do appreciate that you took the time to reply. The same thing happens on all these threads. Someone will ask a question, it wont get answered because of an argument or hijacking.

    I did look up Audiosystems. The 70.4 did look very nice. I cant seem to find a price in USD. Looks to be about 250-300 pounds. That is about $450.00, I think, and very hard to find in the states. I will check out the Adcom stuff, never knew they made car audio. At one time I had an Adcom preamp, very nice. About 15 years ago went all NAD and never looked back.

    They made car audio back in the 90s and it was some of the best equipment ever made for sq in my book.

    I thought your post was in reply to mine since it came like 13 minutes after I made my post about used equipment... lol

    I know it is $60 over budget and is a outdated model, but it is a beautiful beast rated at 13.8v...

    Right after posting the thread I wanted to edit it to add what I had said. It would not allow me to edit because you had allready responded. You must of responded in less than a minute. I got to say when I read your reply I was rollin my eyes. So I guess in a way it was due to your reply but not directly. It seems like every thread I read here someone is trying to sell there equipment, that is what the classifieds are for. Its all good.

    Though @ge_off_me really wasn't trying to sell you an amp, these boards are filled with people trying to pimp their products. It's impossible to ask a question about subs, amps or speakers here without someone trying to sell you their product.

    I know you've had a bad experience buying a used amp, and you may never wanna buy used again. However, there's some good sellers on this site with great amps, and they wouldn't risk their rep to make some $ by selling a bad amp. But if you want new, the recommendations are gonna vary.

    How about Diamond? Back in the 90's, Diamond was a good name. I have not seen any mention of them at caraudio.com.

    This is a nice looking amp, very clean.

    I agree, I just see people make those comments once in a while. I dont think that amount of A/B power can be beat for 329 new

    That amp would draw close to 300a at .5 ohm/ch....and yeah, $330 for a amp that cost $675 in a store, is a good deal..they are very good SQ amps too at 4ohms
