Ok my buddy drives a '98 s-10. We had a Jensen amp pushing a punch 10. I know dont throw anything at me please. Anyway, the sub quit, probably from lack of power. He wants to spend $400 on a decent system, well actually below decent, he is spending $200 of the $400 on a receiver. So I was looking at carstereotime.com and saw they had an Alpine Amp for $99, that puts out 130Watts RMS. Which is a good price I guess. Is carstereotime a credable dealer? I need some advice on the sub though. The amp pushes 240Watts max, so I need a sub that can handle 130RMS and 240 max. I think we will stick with Alpine to match unless y'all have a better idea. THanks for the help.
