would i be able to use something like that to power a subwoofer(s) and hook up to a reciever? it seems like a really cheap way to get a decent amount of power for my subs, almost too good to be true....

as long as its the right ohms

right...so 4ohms no worries....ive just never heard of people using these for subs before....seems alot cheaper than getting a plate amp....only thing i can think of is that it might be a bit big and inconvenient

Gemsound = lose. It's just a knockoff of the Crown CE1000.

ahh....i see....well, i dont care if its a knockoff as long as it puts out its rated power....or is it just a pos like pyramid or pyle?

Many amps even high end amps may not meet rated power. That's not a bad thing,
just look at what the amp can do and then judge it fairly. This amp is rated for
600w @ 4 ohm bridged. I would estimate 300w @ 4 ohm bridged for subs
under heavy stress. Is $100 worth it for a 300w sub amp? You decide.

save your money and get a real Crown (XLS or CE series) or a QSC (RMX series)
