I bought this amp... I can assure you it is not for a beater. I have it on my bench and have 2-12 Orion xtr subs hooked up @ 4 ohm.. And 2 Infinity 6x9s and a set of Mb Quarts comps. This amp really does push all of it. And does a very clean job at it.. I wish i could find one more.. I would dump some jl audio trash for it...

Well if you ever get another chance... Grab one. I collect alot of old car audio, and this one has stayed on my test bench the longest. I had the ADS PH15 and there is no comparing. I have all channels running @ 4 ohms and it is just perfect.

Yeah, I like the older Sony stuff and know it quality equipment. I am still keeping my eyes open for a good condition xm-3040 or amps from that series. Mainly for nostalgia( my first amp was a 3040 ), but would like to make use of them.

The beater system disclaimer was mainly because many on this board think you have to have 100-200 watts per midbass alone. Headroom is nice but it is can be hard finding all in one units that have huge power numbers. I am glad you ended up with that amp. It suprised me to see this thread bumped up though...especially since it seemed hardly anyone had interest when posted originally.

Well I look forward to buying it from you 5 days after you win the auction, and 5 days before you actually receive the item.

I kid, I kid...
