    plate amp

    just looking for a 300watt+ amp for around 100. I have seen the parts express amps, but am not too familiar with home equpment, wondering if there are any other good bets for the money.

    Those are a very good deal...check Ebay, sometimes equivalents to the PE amps go on sale for cheaper.

    You wont find one that cheap. A 250 that is supposedly able to put out 170 is still like 130. Getting 300+is going to be more like 150-200...

    So would you say those PE amps rated for 270 or so are probably putting out less?

    This is kind of confusing what he said, The 250watt from PE is rated for 272, so i would have thought it would put out 272. It seems like he is saying it wont even put out 250.

    However if this amp does put out 272 that would be fine and for about 130 i would go for this deal.
