Seems like you narrowed the field down already, shouldn't be too hard.

That's not a very big budget for an amp of that much true output, especially at 4 ohms.

If you bump it up another $100, things start to look better.

yeah hes pretty cheap.. has a cheap sub now and i think its a pyle amp.. since its a svc 4ohm, i would want to look for a 2 channel to bridge to it?

If that's what he thinks, then there is no reason to get anything better than that Powerbass amp I linked to. It's cheap, may not sound all that great, but it's just powering a sub and he obviously doesn't care about a good sounding audio system anyway.

^^^How do you know how cheap it is? The auction has 5 days left.:rolleyes:
There is a "buy it now" price of $325 on the auction. It is the cheapest price on ebay for this amp. Have a nice day Mr. Jerky. ;)

Even if it makes rated power (it might), it would be a VERY inefficient amplifier. Bridged it would be operating well below 50% efficiency and likely be too much for your car's electrical. You should really look into class-d amps.

So the OP says the guy has a budget of $220 and you link him to an amp that's $325...yeah that makes sense.:rolleyes:
I wanted to show the OP what the cheapest 4-ohm 800-watt RMS sub amp costs. Time for you to find someone else to bug now.

That's an idiotic statement (not like that's a shock). You have no way of knowing if that amp is the cheapest 800 watt amp.:rolleyes:

If you can find a 25 to Life Punch 150, it will give you roughly 850 to 1000 watts RMS @ 4 ohms.



I paid $150 for mine used!
