Don't worry about name brands. I was wondering about the quality of a super cheap amp I recently bought. Well, this morning I took a 4x12 speaker cabinet I built with Celestion 16 ohm G-12T 75's (The world standard for guitar cabinets, used in Marshall cabs costing $1,000). I had it wired for a 16 ohm output for an amplifier I modded, so I wired everything in paralell and got a 4 ohm load to 4 12" speakers. (Good thing I have an electric drill for the screws, there are over 30 of them to get the back of the cab off) Well, I bridged two of the four channels in this 1,600 watt amp and hooked it to a 'dead' 12 volt car battery I had on a float charge for almost 7 months, soldered together 1/4" female to amp connections and soldered 1/4" mono to dual rca outputs from my POD PRO to the amp.85S10Eric said:I've got two Pyle Blue Waves for subs, and a Lanzar Vibe 240 amp. Not the highest quality stuff, but they were within my price range and they should be plenty for my system. I ought to get some pics too.
Damn right. The bass on those 4 12's was incredible, better than any guitar amp I have. You're one of those metalheads, eh? Ever hear of Chimaira? I ordered the impossibility of reason on monday and it still hasn't come yet, the bastards.MuddyS10 said:which is exactly why im getting RE subs, and a Hifonics amp. ill be able to blow away JL, MTX, Pioneer, just about any kind of non-comp level system when i get done.
True, I have heard that. Maybe mine are different or something, because I had them hooked to a friend's amp (Alpine V12 MRV-1505) and we punished them for near an hour, they didn't distort or blow out. My friend was so suprised, because they were making about as much noise as his Earthquake Magma 12s with the same amp. I don't know, there are exceptions to everything I guess.MuddyS10 said:not meant to flame. Pyle = pile of shit.
