  • Goldwood GRS 10SW-4 mobile amp

    Any recommendations as to a decent, inexpensive, 12v amp to run the driver?

    Looking for "on the cheap". Lanzar and Boss are not my top choices, I'd rather run Jensen. Considering a Pioneer GM-A3702 at 190rms bridged. Want to keep it $70 or under. But I'm open to suggestions.

    Thanks

    Laugh if you will but the Scosche 250C2 would work - I've been using its 4-channel cousin (EFX 300C4) reliably with a similar sub + 2 co-axes for several years.

      I like finding good deals on quality used old school amps at pawnshops. I picked up a gorgeous old school PPI PC450 for $50 several years ago. I also scored a really vintage but perfectly working PPI Art series for $10 once. Love it when they donít know what they have in their hands!

        I would go used off Ebay. Mtx, kicker, crossfire, rockford, jl audio, Orion, Alpine, directed audio. You could definitely find one for $70 <, and these older amps usually put out more power than rated. Just keep it within 10-12 years of age.

          Man, I miss my old PPI Art, Phoenix Gold, and really old school "built like a tank" Orion amps.

          I considered the eBay option. Still open to it. But the good tested and true stuff will probably be over my <$60 budget. I only need 100-150rms, single channel.

          Just realized how much I miss that old Orion 2250. What a tank! Never had an hcca Orion....those beasts fetched a premium last I checked.

          Maybe a Jensen jpa260 for about $50. Probably better off for extra $10 with the Pioneer.

            Yes, PG was great before they tanked. Ebay has options in your price range for Mtx and Kicker, probably not Orion. The old kicker zx were good. Those old "tank" amps were very good for many years, but they would have over heating issues today. That' why I'd keep it at 10-12yrs of age. Mentioned brands would be better than jenson imo. Absolute, cheapest I would go with is a lightning audio which was made by Rockford. Good luck

              I put this Boss unit in the kid's car driving a pair of those woofers. He didn't kill it immediately, so that's good. Granted his license was suspended shortly after so the test time is pretty short. It is only running 4 ohms per channel, so you'd be stressing it harder with a 4 ohm bridged load.

                I've used a 1200 W rms Power Acoustic 4 channel amp with 2 channels bridged for a sub.¬* Built like a tank and built in protection.¬* Walmart has a 2 x 180 W rms¬* two-channel unit for $40.

                  Iíve had numerous MTX amps throughout the years and have always had great luck with them. Never one failure. Iíd add them to my list of solid amps that donít break the bank, especially when found used.

                    Son of a... I paid a lot more for my Power Acoustik single channel class D amp of that same line. Definitely a good amp, didn't suggest it because I thought they remained in the 3 figure range to start.
