Anyone heard of earthquake amps?? - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

They are in the same market as JBL....not to be confused with JL.

I know some of their stuff is overrated but I have never really heard bad things about their stuff. not that much good on the other hand either.

personally I would take the JBL just because I have not run any earthquake gear. My jbl 1200.1 was one nice amp for the price.

Humm.. said I would take it already.. so hopefully it gives the power rating that it does.. lookin thru closer it doesn't support hi level input. So dam lazy that I guess I have to run RCA wires from HU to amp then

Hopefully I"m not getting screwed.. I had a MA 1000a that claims 1000 watt peak that frankly seem more like 80 RMS

So hopefully this is what it claims at least..

Their high powered amps are good for burpin.... that'* all i really know. So maybe not the best quality but i'm sure it would be fine!

Ya these amps are used in DB drags quite often. Tons of power for the $$. As for a SQ system I'd look a diff. route

So I guess than it would be ok for the subs then..

I have some cheapo amps kickin around I might use to power the rears for now 18 RMS from the HU just don't fit the requirements.. the front speakers are still stock * for now * then I will amped that up at a later time too.

Anyone heard of Nakamichi subs? I don't know the model specifically at this time..
