Your first amplifier - what was it?


Recommended Posts

Autotek supersport 1000

c'mon now, if i was shooting an 8 year old, it wouldnt be MY 8 year old.

i recently got a Pyle PL1590BL and i was building an enclosure for it tuned to 25 hz. i didn't have any tools to cut a circle so i hit it with a big hammer.

2003 Infiniti G35 Sport Sedan

Wish I could remember the model number or even find it. . .

Back in the early 80's, I picked up my first pair of amps. Two Sanyo 50x2 amps. Had one amp on a pair of Pioneer TS-6906 6x9's and the other on a pair of 10" subs I took from my home speakers. 200 watts RMS.

Knew NOTHING about car audio back then. Built the largest box that would fit behind the seat of my 78 Ford truck, divided it into 4 chambers and put a speaker in each chamber. No one in my town had ever seen anything like it in a car. Sounded great back then. . .I run into people from high school that I have not seen since we graduated, and the first thing they normally ask is "you still into all those loud car stereos?". I just smile and say "you have no idea".

1st amp was either a Jensen or Boss ,96,97ish.

Then when I was 18 I saved my money to get my 1st Kicker amp, a Kicker ZR360 and have used and abused this amp on and off for years.

The thought of ever getting rid of my first real amp just doesn't exsist!

Isobaric - Refers to the practice of coupling two drivers together to make them act as one.

Kenwood KAC 729S

Bought it when I was 16 from a buddy for $60.

Beat on it every day I owned it, first powered a pair of RF Punch XLC's, then some Lanzars. It was just replaced from my Girlfriend's car where it was powering 2 Audiobahns.

Now it is sitting in my room where I can remember the memories

In my Escort with the XLC punch's


In my Cav


Last time it was powered in Girlfriend's Spectra

I inherited my first amps, the original punch 45 and punch 75 with the wires and plugs. The 45 ran all four of my speakers and the 75 was turned loose on the subs. I had also inherited two 10" Kicker Stillwater Separates. My old man had bought them new forever ago. I guess you could say I was old school spoiled



Subs looked like this.


It's all gone!

If I buy something from you, DO NOT USE FEDEX!
