    Need ~ 80w x 2 in the $200-$350 range

    I'm installing a pair of Focal 165 V30s in my Dodge Ram Megacab. They're rated at 80W RMS, so I figure something in the 75-100W RMS range is where my target should be.

    There are just SO many brands and models out there these days. Just looking for a 2-channel amp, in the $200-$350 range. Not the cheapest, not the most expensive, just the best value for the money.

    I've heard of the typical household name brands, but I don't want something overrated (not watts, namesake) either.

    Any recommendations for this setup? Thank you.

    I really like my RF T600.2 and the T400.2 was pretty good as well, and with you only wanting 100rms from it I'm guessing at 4ohms you will be left with tons of head room to push the speakers to there full potential without the amp struggling to keep up.

    Correct, 4 ohms. I see that is in the 'Power' series, above the 'Punch' P400-2 that I had been looking at a little bit. I see they can be had new for $230-$250. In laymen's terms, what are the major advantages of the Power over Punch series?

    Well those are not mainstream amps that I've heard of (Like I said, I only know what's big-named, but I know there's a ton of smaller-named stuff at a better value...I just don't know who is what. I'll PM you to see what you have...

    the powers do a good amount over rated where as the punch does a decent amount over but not as much, I prefer the power over the punch series though they just seem to sound better IMO.

    For the top of you price range I can sell you my mint TUBE Driver 75x2 @4ohms amp. By far the best SQ you can get for that price.

    Re: Need ~ 80w x 2 in the $200-$350 range

    Got ya. Am I reading that correctly, tubes, as in, old-school tube stuff? How old is it, and how would repair work be done if necessary?

    Reading his history, the blue line was launched in '01! "In late 2001, with the successful launch of the Tube Driver BLUE car amplifiers behind him,"

    Thanks...
