    Icon6 I'm brand new to this I want to know if this amp is good?

    Prestige PAB-250R
    200 watts 12v

    Also the wires were cut. I need to know which wires to get, where, and how to plug them up.

    On a second question am I able to hook this up to a home stereo?

    Thank you!

    Don't hook it up to your home stereo. It's a good way to start a fire. Get an 8 gauge amp kit read the instructions. Youtube has a bunch of tutorials as well. Maybe use the search function? Before you go through too much trouble though I'd take it and get it bench tested. Might charge you 5 bucks but if it's fried it would save you a lot of trouble.

    What subwoofer are you talking about? All I see is a pic of a cheap amp?

    So you want to hook up the amp to the sub and use it as a home theater sub? It would be easier to get a cheap plate amp.... And yeah. That amp is extremely cheap. Here's the same one on Ebay used for 69.99 and I think he's asking too much.

    Re: I'm brand new to this I want to know if this amp is good?

    I just saw it in someone's garage and bought it for 60$ I don't mind the price at all I mean I'm not look for the top of the line 1500watt stuff that a lot of people have on here, just want to simply listen to some good quality music

    And overall I have the Home theater which I want to hook up to the amp to the subwoofer or could I exclude the amp and just hook up the subwoofer too it?
