    My son bought himself a new amp, Belva BB3000D

    So my RF Punch 800a2 amp died, and I was searching for a suitable replacement, and I guess I was taking too long. My son up and used a gift card from Christmas and bought himself a Belva BB3000D amplifier from Sonic electronix. It will be hooked up to a Alpine 10" Type R DVC 4ohm wired as a 2 ohm load. Will I have any issues with this amp? Anyone know anything about these Belva amps?



    My short lil references from who i bought from.. Tallc, BassAddictJ, lilkman2202, IamMurph, CJ8501, bumpincrv, and mrteacha

    2008 F250 powerstroke. too much performance done, stock stereo.
    2013 Honda Civic, 100% stock inside and out (wifes brand new car)
    1995 Mustang GT, getting ready to upgrade whole system to include RF Punch 800a2, Alpine type R 10" in vented box tuned to 26hz.

    And brand that isn't CEA compliant is a hit or miss. Some people have perfect luck and they last for years, while others have issues like the video posted. Personally, I would try to return it and get a more reliable brand that actually does proven numbers. But who knows.

    Be easy on the gain settings. These amps have not been proven to do rated.

    They're rated 1260 @ 2ohms. I would be careful and tune to 800watts instead.

    I'd rather buy a used alpine or RF amp than one of those.

    get that 800a2 fixed



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    They are junk just like AudioPipe amps. They dont do rated power and the components they are made with are just pure junk.
