In my 4-Runner I am running a RF Power BD1000a1 and Power 400a4. In my 300zx I am running a RF Power BD1000a1 and Punch 200a4. I love these amps, raw power, durability and clean sounding.

Watch for turn-on pops. One of those models had it for some reason. Not huge but noticeable.

Got a simple question but don't want to ask because: You don't want to clutter the forum with threads; You feel silly asking it; You tried to search to no avail.

They are Lunar Amps.
The two big boards in the large heatsinks are L2200s (200x2@4ohms. 800x1@4ohms) Im running one per side bridged at 4ohms on my front stage.
The four small boards in the large heatsinks are L1500s (500x1@1ohm) I'm running them at .5ohms on one dd95z12s , in a horn.

Default Re: What amps are you using ?

Looks like I'll be running Arc audio in my upcoming install. I'm running a KS 900.6 for the three way fronts and a 1000.1 for the subs. I was originally planning a 300.4 (which I'll now have to find some other application for) when the 900.6 came up. Couldn't pass it up, and I like the idea of only having to use two amps (however large they may be) instead of three.

Default Re: What amps are you using ?

I think there are some substantially more evolved options vs, the Power 650.
That is a cool looking amp, but boy, talk about OLD school (that is like prehistoric),
like before a 286 processor is to todays chips...

So I would look for something at least from the late 80's or newer.

I now have my second Leviathan installed in the second car, and it works sweet,
even with at 1kw plus, on the stock electrical system.

Good luck with your upgrades.

they made the Power 650's up until the early 90's...
there are definately newer, more advanced amps out there, but it does what its supposed to do.
and yes, it would probably eventually kill my stock 85 amp alternator.
