    I need some amp advice from the pro's .

    The scenario: Some thief decided he liked my Memphis pr 1.500 better than I . I loved this amp to death . It was running 2 sundown SA-8 d-4 in a custom built T-line. It was loud. I am not really a car audio buff (almost 40) and was stuck in the late 80's early 90's until recently . The memphis replaced a blown old soundstream lil wonder and the SA-8 replaced crossfire CF2 8"s . The rest of my system is old school soundstream in a CRX (exact components and soundstream crossovers).

    OK here is my question. Sound has come a long way since I was remotely interested in it, I know you guys will bust my chops for this. has anyone clamped a GENERIC amp and was surprised at the outcome that it almost did or did rated? If so what amp would that be?

    I have very little cash (college, family, house, etc..) and want my bass back . I see ALL of these $50-$100 or less amps on e-bay that will meet my wattage demands , but what is the best generic amp for under $100 from 500-1000 watts; respectively , that has been known to do rated power ?


    I know this is a dumb question and people will be angry and tell me to buy a name brand. But I just cant afford it. Unless someone has one $100 or well under that can push my subs (please mail me).

    Thanks guys .

    Well, for 500watts@$100 bucks,thats not a realistic budget for a decent amp especially needing a 1ohm load for 2-dvc4ohm subs..If you can find a good used Alpine maybe around that price, or you may have to go with one of these here

    Don't rule out local pawn shops either... you may even find what was stolen from you behind their shelves.

    I have experience with this amp. I actually clamped mine at 1ohm cant remember rise but got 965 true watts
    RE Audio DTS-1500.1 (DTS1500.1) 2000W Monoblock Class D Amplifier

    And this is the amp that will be going into my wifes Tiguan to push two Cadence S2W8's.
