It since has toasted one channel again, and I'd like to get it back up and running, because for a little 300 watt amp...it REALLY kicked. Good Sound quality too. Low tolerance capacitors and resistors, good power torroid...really built nice.
    If you speak to him, could you ask him if that was his design, and if he's willing to give me the idle current spec so I can get rockin?
    Thanks!

    YES he is the great mind behind ALL the "ZED AUDIO" amps.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    If I had the cash... I'd pick up an Alphasonik PMA1200DA to try it out.
    Most of their line has Rave reviews, and based on my experience with the last one...it's definitely worth a try.

    Or are you looking for a multi-channel?

    old school I'd have to say the old Alpine 3555 amps only rated at 50w x 4, but we all know they were so much more.
    now I can't complain about my Memphis 1000D running the 4 Memphis 12s in the trunk of the goat

    if your looking for quality I'd stay away from stores like that and go to a stereo shop.
    what are you looking for in wattage, or what subs did you want to run?

    They were bought out as everyone was in the early/mid 90's.

    ZED Audio that I have referred to extensively made ALL the real HiFonics amps. They are very desirable as you will see if you look on Ebay.

    What are you looking for an amp for mids and tweets or a sub amp.

    If it's a sub amp your looking for and not needing to run a 2 ohm load you can't go wrong with the ZUES. Most referred to it as the "Voice Coil Fryer".

    Holy crap A Lanzar amp in there i still have two of them Opti bad boys. A 150 and a 50. I wished I never sold my two 500's back in the day I had four 12's and four 15's in a standard cab Nissan, all Lanzar Pro series. Yes the bed was cut and the 12's fired through the back glass.
