Hello Guys,
I have 2 Indoor/Outdoor Speakers that each are 150 RMS@8ohms, and I need an amplifier for them.

I'm looking for something low cost, decent quality, that have rca audio input, preferably small and I want to be able to have power to max them, Any Suggestions?

Been there, but I'm looking for something that's not a big receiver.

Like maybe a PA system that you can use an iPod with ?

Yes, I guess. Something small in size and cost, that will fully power the speakers.

well, best buy does usually have 2/4 channel amp/"reciever" for cheap, and it seems like it will do well new...... honestly, though, you can get the last line of real technics aps (i.e. su-v78, su-z.......) and they are a true 110x2rms, small form factor, and many have a power switch issue, being sold for like 10-30 range. i have a couple, and they are great, and a smart buy.

Thanks, but I already bought something different a while ago. PM me with what you have in case I'm interested in buying something else.

This is my world, since I work for one of the largest commercial/professional audio brands in the world.

There aren't a lot of rack mount amplifiers on the market with that low of a power rating. We certainly don't make one. The only one that comes to mind is a small amplifier by a brand named Stewart.

If you can find an old Crown D100 or D250 they sound awesome. You can search Craigslist for a smaller Crown or QSC amplifier. Maybe an old Carver

In the future, check out the Mackie Thump TH15: it is a 500+ watt active 15 inch two way that only cost $350 for the whole package. They are hugely popular with DJs, bars and churches.

Since you said that, for home use, what do you recommend to power:
1- 1 15" Kicker L7 Dual 4ohm 1000rms subwoofer?

2- 1 12" Pioneer 4 ohm 500rms sub?

Thanks.

Any Crown or QSC amplifier that meets your power requirements will do. Don't buy anything Behringer, Cerwin Vega or other garbage. Just don't

And FYI, no professional audio amplifier in the entry level price points is going to contain the crossover capabilities seen in the car audio world: they assume that you have a separate system processor/crossover. Most people who are looking for something quick and affordable do something like a Rane AC22 or AC23. You can move up to a dBX Drive Rack or something more, but they are all more expensive system processors.
