Default Pics of Zed-made Planet Audio P475

Just got this from eBay: Late 1990s, 4 X 75 watts/4 ohms. Seems to be relatively rare, so these shots are just to show everybody what this amp is all about.

Any reactions from someone who actually knows what we're looking at would be helpful. The limits of my observations are that it's signed by a guy named Eddie who also signed Zed-made Hifonics boards.

Haven't hooked it up yet, but no obvious problems. By "obvious" to me I mean no snakes or scorpions crawled out of it when I opened it up and no one left a note reading, "Sucker!"

i wish i had found this first! my first amp ever was a 2 channel version of this..same color and everything. i cant say what the sq is like because i was an idiot back then but i can tell you it took abuse like no other amp i owned in those days back when i had no idea what an ohm was or that it was not supposed to have 2 12s hooked to it.

I had the tube version and sold it to a friend... kinda wished I had held onto it.

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

Going to run some HAT Imagines with the P475. I hope they'll sound fine with just the 75 watts per channel so I can run a sub with the other two. If not, I'll either bridge the channels and drive them with 150 watts a side or bi-amp them and turn the gain way down on the tweeters. Speakers are in coaxial setup now. Might move the tweeters closer to the kick panels if I have to go active.

If you dont care let us know how it turns out. I had a 75x2 and it did great one one 12 which was a jbl gto iirc. I would say the front channels will be more than enough.

If you ever sell the amp pm me please

I used to have that same amp. Sold it a long time ago though. Sound was pretty good and rock solid build. It should run a passive comp set with no problems. And 150watts bridged to a sub should make for a decent sq build with the right woofer. Find something with a higher sensitivity and lower rms and you should get some decent volume from your woofer when you want it. I would think something like a powerbass s-series 12 would probably run good off this amp.

Great Amp. I left one in a Accord that I traded in. Hell that might be my old one. Does it look like the speaker terminals have been cleaned?

The amp itself is very clean overall, with just a slight scrapping of the cover in the upper right corner. The only distinguishing mark on the speaker terminals is that one of the "gold"-plated screws has been lost and replaced with a normal silver-coated screw.

It doesn't look like this amp spent any time getting gunked up and cleaned off, except for a small bit of foreign substance of some sort between a couple of cooling fins.

Amp had made its way to West Virginia before I got it -- don't know where it originated.

I used to run a pair of P4150's along with a P475 in my cougar before the car was stolen. Very solid equipment made by Zed Audio. I got mine straight from Stephen Mantz. I wish I still had them.

Hey folks -- I see all kinds of praise of Zed products, but I rarely see much detail about WHY these amps are so valued. Clean sound? Reliability? Power? Musicality? Just curious.

add value to the list as well for what they can be had for now. there are so many old amps now that sell for a quarter or less of what they did 5 years ago.

Yes I agree they are a great value now and they made so much of the old school equipment. The sound quality and size to power ratio is very strong for that time period of amps. Most of his amps are tightly regulated so there performance is more consistent on the average electrical system when the demands dip into battery reserves at 12v. Very clean. There seemed to be two different levels, us acoustic USA series, plant audio and a few others they seemed to have a more laid back sound on the high end still pretty detailed, and then hifonics, rodek, Usx...f, Esx, and Autotek that have a more Agressive hi end with a new layer of detail. Both levels slam subs and are tight and clean given the edge to the later slightly in SQ.

Oh also just to mention. A friend came over and and I dug out a zed mono block rated at 100@4ohm 200@2ohm. He had a brand new American company classd mono block rated at 2000 watts. It was every bit as strong and much more accurate. He was pissed.

So for what it is worth you should have no problems with this 4ch on your components. Hope this helps. Enjoy your new hidden gem.

Thanks, Silky Slim. I appreciate the information. Glad mine is in the more "laid back" category given the edginess of the other components in my system.

interesting, those 4 vertically mounted PCBs look like discrete opamps, very, very nice for SQ
