    heres a good recipe:

    one pyramid 2000W (peak i might add) amp
    on MTX Thunder6000 12" sub
    Wires and accessories

    stir well and crank up on the 4th of july and rival all the big name fireworks vendors with the pyramid2000 ultra big sparkler. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    lol, seriously, they're crap, dun even bother. besides, i bet its a home amp at that.

    4 ch 2000 watt amp for $80

    [/ QUOTE ]


    'NUFF SAID!


    2000W with what frequency response? 20Hz-20,000Hz? (Not likely!)
    At what distortion level? 50%? (Likely)
    For what duration?........ 5 ms? (Maybe less....)


    Seriously, there are a lot of unscrupulous manufacturers out there "selling the fantasy".....if you honestly think you can get 2000 watts for $80, they'll probably hook you!!!

    Get a copy of the spec sheet and post it up here....I'll be happy to dissect it for you, so that you'll know HOW to identify B.S. stuff easily from now on. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    lol, yeah. the only ampiknow of that hasanything even remotely close to that power output costs mega dinero (talkin bout a grand each) and those are totally distortion unless ur below like 80Hz. all those uber high power amps arn't worth didly squat unless ur into Db drag racing. so, screw the amp, save ur $80 and blow it on suttin worthwhile. (like family and friends...wait, more like truck and truck) /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
