    Should I get this Tantrum 1200.1?

    Ok, looking around on ebay and I came across this Tantrum.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...spagename=WDVW

    I emailed the guy and he said he would sell it to me directley for 160 bucks shipped.

    Now I know for a working (which i hope this one is) 1200,1. thats a good azz price, but I was wondering if there was anything different about this one that would make it not worth much or something.

    He says it has some special tri-path board-what the heck is that?
    Anthing else I should know about this amp??

    Thanks.

    $160 shipped?

    What's wrong with it?

    It's obviously been refurbished, but what else is up...

    I dunno, he says he's selling it because he has a Zapco 9.0.

    Thats about it. Think its worth it or not?

    What do these things put out at 4 ohm also? 700ish watts?

    They do constant power from 2 to 4 ohms...mine benched 1450W, and that's on the low end.

    $160 is half what they're worth...I would be very, very cautious.

    Hmm, maybe I should look for something else.

    Make him show actual voltage readings and pictures of it turned on...if it's real, he doesn't know what he has...

    You mean like a picture of a DMM on the outputs and a picture that shows it lights up and all?

    Re: Should I get this Tantrum 1200.1?

    Ok, haha one more question.

    Can this be ran at 1.5 ohm?

    If not, any idea what this would put out power wise at 6 ohm. Theoretically it should be like 900 or so watts right?

    Reason I ask, I might make a deal with a guy that has some Eclipse Alums, I want a pair and he says they are 3 ohm.

    Thanks a lot man.

    Hmm...I'm pretty sure you'd be alright, if you factor in impedance rise in-box...but I wouldn't try to go lower than that.

    Guy just emailed me back, all he said was

    "my feedback is proof that if works"

    Feedback Score: 136
    Positive Feedback: 98.6%

    If I do go with this setup, maybe I will just run them at 6 ohm to be on the safe side with the amp and subs.

    Well what the heck. I didnt get it.

    I wonder if he sold it to someone else, or if he thinks Im taking it for sure.

    Hmmm.
