WTB 5 channel amp (no junk) thats does rated power

Recommended Posts

Wanting to buy a 5 channel amp that does actual rated power. Please no low end junk (I will know its junk).

 

I am not picky on the 4 speaker channels outputs at all but at least 70-100wrms on either 4 ohm or 2 ohm, but I would prefer it to have a decent amount of power on the 5th sub channel. Maybe at or around 500w rms - 700w rms at 2 ohm or 1 ohm.

 

Looking for something $200-$300ish range depending on used / new and condition. If new and of better quality of course I would be willing to be on the higher end of that budget.

 

Let me know what you got, it doesn't have to be exact as I specified but that is what I would prefer.

 

I would prefer it to be a class d or class a/b and class d combo amp instead of a straight class a/b amp. As long as its pretty efficient that is good.

 

 

I know of some brand new amps that fit the lower end of my budget such as the NVX jad900.5 and the newer ppi 900 5 channel amps, and some soundstream 5 channel amps. I am not wanting to buy one of those lower end amps, at least something that is a step or 2 better than those.

I would take a look at Sundown if you can spare a few more bucks. I have not used it personally but I’m sure it does everything it says it will do well.

Thanks for the link. I have seen that amp and I have had sundown amps in the past. 1 thing that worries me is that I heard that they decided to put cheaper capacitors in this model for some reason, I don't know if that is true but I will be doing research or getting in touch with sundown to see if that is true. If its not true I will probably buy one.

I have looked up so many amps in my criteria and have actually seen this amp as well. This is a solid amp, if I saw one pop up again I would buy it lol.

I run the NVX in 2 of my work trucks. They are great. They both tested out over 480 watts on the sub channel. One was 526.

 

I wouldn't discount them if they fit power requirements. Been running them for almost two years.

 

I do wish the sub channel was more in the 800 watt range.

I've got one, not a bad little 1k, I haven't tried it on mids and highs yet.

May have to use on my build if I can't find a ab class amp for my mids/highs.

 

For now it's just sitting.

There's an Arc Audio XDi 1200.6 listed on Ebay for $365. It's a little over your budget, but it's a ******* amp and a very high-end amp...in my opinion.

I used to have one, and I think you will like the front stage on this amp... Very nice sounding in my opinion

Yeah I would prefer it to be a little more power on the 5th channel as well. I do know they put out rated power which is good, I am just leery on some of the internals. If I was on a really strict budget I would probably get one, I almost bought one, but decided I would like more power and upped my budget in the $300-$350 range. I would really like a soundqubed hds2 12" sub or a hds3 12" sub. The hds2 recommends 600w rms and the hds3 recommends around 1200w rms. If I don't find a deal on here soon I will look into a sundown 1100.5 refurb.

 

 

 

*EDIT* I also found a german amp for $300 brand new that puts out rated power with 700w rms on the sub channel. It is ugly as sin but is a reliable amp.

I was in the same boat like you, for a litttle bit more, I ended up buying the nvx 1200.1 and 800.4, they are small, deliver the power, and working on an 80 amp alternator with just a medium size battery under the hood (2010 ford escape) with no dimming. You get 125 x4 and option of 1200 @1 ohm , 800 @ 2 ohms and 500 @ 4ohms, very flexible setup !

Just curious, what is the make and model of that German amp you found for $300?

      As the title states, im looking for a USB powered termlab. Would like it to include everything. Prices on a new one with single sensor setup now days is 649.99, so im willing to pay for used one as long as the price is fair compared to that. May consider older a/c powered model as long as the price is REAL FAIR.
