Nearly mint Old School Orion HCCA 150 R.
Not many of these around anymore, its essentially an HCCA 225 for subs and an XTR 250 for mids and highs built into one heatsink.
Not sure what it's actually worth because I cant find any for sale anywhere, so I'm open to offers but it's one of my most prized possessions and I'm looking to get a fair price. (I also have an HCCA 2100 in equally as good condition that I'm considering parting with)

Channel 1/2
2 x 50W @4 ohm
2 x 100W @ 2 ohm
Bridged
1 x 200W @ 4 ohm

Channel 3/4
2 x 25W @ 4 ohms
2 x 50W @ 2 ohms
2 x 100W @ 1 ohm
2 x 200W @ .5 ohm Is stable
Bridged
1 x 100W @ 4 ohms
1 x 200W @ 2 ohms

Hey Bro, I used to own the same amplifier, i bought in new in 1999 with the manual. That amp is a cheater amp, the front channels are actually the rear for subs 1 ohm bridged half ohm stereo. The amp is actually a HCCA 225R and a HCCA 250R in one chassis. Believe me the manual doesn't lie. I paid $1299. new + tax That amp is an absolute power house. I had that amp in my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 single cab. It had 4 shallow mounted Pioneer Premier 12'' subs, Alpine deck, Audio control eq3, phoenix gold 5 1/4'' zero point mids, 2 farid cap. That system shook buildings. I'm totally into old school car amplifiers.

Yeah these amps are special. I worked at an Orion dealer in the 90's in Canada and have always been very impressed by their "Old School" amps in particular. Since DEI took over in the late 90's Orion gear is good but not kick ass the way it was before.
Lol! You didn't read my description of the amp but basically quoted my description back to me in your message.;)

The Orion HCCA 150r is an XTR 225 for the highs and a HCCA 250R for the subs. But I know the front channel on the amp is for the subs, in the manual it states the front channel is 400 watts at 1 ohm and 400 watts at 2 ohms for the rear channels. Most of the amps power is delivered to the sub front sub channel. When i was running that amp it pounded so hard, I pulled up to this car audio shop, the owner came out and said it was shaking his desk 75 feet away from where i was parked. I have a few old school amps that I've been collect over the years. I have 2 Orion amps one is a Orion XTR 200, Orion HCCA 250R Picked that up for a pawn shop for $15 Canadian they said it was for parts only, it had no plugs, took it home, used my plugs from my other amp and it works awesome. I have a few PPI PC Amplifiers, PPI PC 250, PPI PC 275, PPI PC 2150, 2 PPI PC 4800 one chrome, 1 PPI PC 21400.2 it's a 1400 watt beast. The PPI PC Class amplifiers are amazing they hit hard but put out wicked sound quality. I'd put the Orion HCCA R series on the same level as the PPI PC class. Both of those series of amps have a 500 Damping Factor. For the last 3 years I've been running a PPI PC 2150 for my subs and PPI PC 275 for my highs. Absolutely amazing sound quality, hits hard, super clean and loud. The gains on both amps are off because my subs are only 2 12'' Rockford P1's. I'm using a 40 farid cap in that setup. I'm going to run the PPI PC 21400.2 and a PC 4800 in my Mercedes. U can look up the manual all the specs are on Google

lol! You felt you had to restate the description I posted months ago twice, and I'm sorry, PPI has never been on the same level as ORION, Rockford, Zapco, and Soundstream. Its more in the Alpine, Lanzar, High Fonics category.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but your have no Idea what your talking about. I never said all PPI amps just the PC class. I currently own both Orion HCCA 250R and A bunch of PPI PC series amps. I Know that both the Orion R series and PPI PC series sound the same because I am currently running the PPI PC 2150 & the PC 275 as I've already mentioned, and have also ran the Orion HCCA 150r in my truck. I think you need to listen to the PC class before you make false accusations. Both the Orion HCCA R series and the PPI PC series were produced at the same time, both series have the same daming factor. Soundsteam amps are always braking down Rockford Fosgate are not sound quality amps good bass though. Lanzar really. High Fonics had alot of issues with there amps. The only good amps you mentioned are the Orion and the Zapco. The PPI PC series amps are top notch amplifiers. Don't be miss lead by people assuming things, I'm living proof, I have no idea why your hating on the PC series amps. Have you listen to any PPI PC series amplifiers? Stop your hating PPI PC series and listen to one before you make false accusations.

Accusations? Lol! Bro I don't need to say anything in reply, you just said the most silly shit. 500 dampening? Do you know anything at all about class A or class B amps at all? Your comments suggest you dont. It seems like possibly you read an article somewhere about dampening factors of amps and it became your big feature huh? Lol! keep typing some more, let's see what else you don't know about class a and b amps. Judging an amp by its dampening factor is like chosing a hammer because you think a red painted one hit nails harder than a hammer painted black. From what I can read you don't know much about amps or the meaning of the term "false accusations" . You should move on.
