Holy Grail of 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)

nice find...


I would take two Orion HCCA amps over those though... The Ultimate cheater amp 50 x 2 but drop it to 1/2 an ohm and watch out...


also back in that time frame you also had american made Hifonics which would crush any Fosgate.

Also Phoenix Gold stuff was uber expensive back then

Linear Power, American Made Earthquake, man o man those were the good old days


but the holy grail and will always be in my eyes is the PPI Art Series amps. Nothing can ever come close to those.. did there rated power at 8-14v didnt matter.. Under rated to say the least and just clean as hell... Nothing will ever beat it. To bad PPI went to hell just like every other amp company from back then.

RF is only good if you dig deep and buy the Top end Power series stuff, not the crap you get at Best Buy. im not that old and even i remember when RF was the stuff to have. now most of its just mediocre
