    Uhh that Mad Max ad is a bunch of horseshit. Nowhere close to worth that much. As for amp fusing, don't let it be the judge for how much power an amp puts out. It's actually a part of the marketing techniques, so a company will over-fuse their amps, something goes wrong, and the amp blows anyway. That was some smart R&D right there, huh?

    Re: Need Amp Suggestions Please.

    Honestly Im iffy about a lot of things till I see them in real world use and also inclined to try new things. I noticed there are no ballast resistors on that pcb. At least that's what I think there called, The white block resistors you commonly see on amp boards. What does it use in place of them? Or is that a more common thing on class a/b amps? Trying to get more informed on amp technology. How long you been running yours for now?

    Re: Need Amp Suggestions Please.

    Yeah, it looks like a well made amp. And I see the bottom one has a sound alarm which is probably for trouble alerts. I would not hesitate to try one. But the ebay ad is completely different. What models are them 2?

    Re: Need Amp Suggestions Please.

    both those board differ significantly. The bottom one I would get no problem. You say there both the same amp, Do them 2 extra ferrite chokes on the bottom one replace all them ballast resistors on the upper on?

    Re: Need Amp Suggestions Please.

    mistake, Never mind. your last sentence I thought you said they were both the same amp but I misunderstood. I like that bottom amp how much are they again? the bottom 1200 one? $200? I may try it to be honest. Could you do a video of it in operation? And your about 2 hours from me Id come pick it up if you are a seller. Id like to see it in person. Or do you know of a reseller in central florida?

    if you could PM me if you know of a seller in central florida. Instead of dragging out this post.
