    Questions About This Earthquake

    Hey, so i aquired a super oldschool Earthquake amp, as shown in the picture. It is an Earthquake PA-4020 UHC. It says 4 x 20 Rms @ 4 Ohms. This guy is ungodly larger than any other amp ive seen and i was wondering if somebody whose a veteran would be able to tell me some more about this amp. Like when was it released for sale originally, for how much, whats the output, and what is it worth today. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks!

    Re: Questions About This Earthquake

    From what I've read it does around 650x1 @4ohm bridged and stable to 2ohm bridged. Not sure on OG prices.



    Current set up: 2010 Buick Enclave, 2 12" MMATS PROCASTS 2.5@35, MMATS D200HC
    Hertz 165XL comps in front door, Alpine 1507 bridged
    Pioneer Z150bt Nav, Audio Technix all around.

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    Of course to get 2000 watts out of that old class a/b, you will need a sh1t load of electrical

    Its actually a POS amp...Ill send you $50 to take it off your hands shipped..Seems like it was released somewhere around 91-94 I believe, as I hooked an exact version up for a friend while living in GA at that time, and were/Just came out.Id say its worth around $125-200 max today.Rated around 11.6v I believe, and unregulated supply.I believe they were around $399 new and up,should be an easy 50+ rms x4@13v.I was running Hifonics VII series at that time(2-Boltars,on 4 tens, and 1 Vulcan and 1-Odin in an Eagle Talon, and almost bought a line up of this version of EQuakes.Nice amps,and the Crunch amps were awesome around that time as well
