My first amp (about 15 years ago), was a Pyramid PB448, the white one with purple fins. Had this on two old school RF Punch 12's in a sealed prefab and thought I was just the cats meow LOL. I can remember my first slight trunk flex and everyone in my neighborhood awwing at it haha! Good times, before I broke my wallet for this passion :/

my first amp was the one of the old vr3 200 watt 2 channels you could buy at walmart. the ones with the clear casing on top and the red finned heat sinks. had it pushing a pair of roadmaster 6.5's in my very first vehicle. 1974 ford courier.

LOL, my neighbor still uses two of them on two older Kenwood Excelon 12's.

A Bazooka ELA500.1 and a rockford fosgate punch 2 channel(to this day havent been able to identify it!!) were the first two amps i ever played around with, with some cheezy kicker comp 10s and then one day my dad gave me one of the OLD kicker cvr's, (before the crazy looking cones, when the cone was just a uniform cup). when i hooked it up the first vs a single 10 it seemed quieter than the 10... that was the day i learned about the effects of varying impedance loads on amplifiers
