Default Bad Timing for a new Amp

So just after we got home from buying a new 3 Channel Amp for the Trans Am, I find out our main family desk top Computer has crapped out.
$$$

It was a great deal on a Kicker 550 Amp to drive the two rear deck 6 x 9 speakers and Sub.

Ya Ya I know.....I didn't want another sub in one of my vehicles after added the 10" JL Audio box in my Jeep but my Son kicked in half the cost and the price was reduced by 50% because it was a demo model. Besides it will be his car as soon as he turns 16......Heck NO WAY.....I say 18
I love driving the T-top 400 hp beast.

$500. for an $1100 Amp.
Didn't get a Sub yet. The guy is holding it for us. I think it looks funny cause it'* 10" square not round. Says there is more surface area so it'* better than a round one. You should see the size of the magnet.
They reduced the price to $250 for it. Got to make a custom box for it.

I think the two 250 W 6 x 9 Pioneer'* are enough and will rattle the sheet metal more than the exhaust which already sets off every car alarm it passes by.

I agree. I think those square kickers are meant more for higher db'* but I can't imagine it makes too great of a difference.

Sounds like you got a nice price on the amp!
