    Clarion apa 4203

    Just picked up a Clarion apa 4203 4 channel amp. It was on Craigslist for 30 bucks so i grabbed it, didnt know much about it but i figured for 30 bucks it was worth a shot. Anyone know anything about this amp? Its pretty beat up but nothing a nice paint job cant fix. Its rated at 50 watts @ 4 and 75 @ 2, any idea if these are some what close to actual power? Its fused at 50 amps. Any input on these would be nice.

    I picked up a Clarion APA 4204 4 channel for $40 locally and liked it. Don't know for sure if it puts out rated but it seems to and I actually preferred it running my 4 coaxials compared to my Alpine MRP-F240. I couldn't find much info on them either but I'd like to hear some.

    Clarion amps do, on average from what I've seen, right at to 10% above rated power. Can't go wrong with them. I have seen 1 or 2 that fell short of its rated power, but you'd never hear it. $30 and $40 is a great price for their APA amps. Great amps they are.

    I had ab APA4160, chs 1&2 at 4 ohms to my fronts, chs 3&4 bridged at 2 ohms to two 10" subs. Never got hot, never shut off, never complained. Great amp!
