budget amp for Rev 10s
I need to here from the guys that run amps other than the sync 4 or jl 750/1. I'm getting REV 10s and its stretching the budget with the wife to get those so dropping 600.00 on an amp might not be the best thing. There are a couple used HT4 around anybody use one with rev 10s. I would love to have a used jl 750/1 but can't find any. Anybody use PPI 900.4 or the NVX one just like it.

I have a SYN4 running my REV 10s that sounds absolutely sick! Each speaker is getting 400W RMS.

I picked up both my SYN4s for less then $250 each off Craigslist

I use the PPI 900 for my REV 10s and inboats. The amp is extremely small and powerful. It's worked great so far.

I have an Alpine PDX-F4 running a pair and sounds great. They are great amps.

A good friend of mine has a brand new in the box F4 he is looking to sell, he is upgrading to 4 Rev 10's instead of 2 and needs more power. Let me know if your interested.

Same here. The small size is crazy. It runs extremely cool too. Works and sounds great so far.

I would also suggest the PPI - best bang for your buck out there.

I have a used JL MHD750/1 for $350 shipped.

how much do you want to spend?

jonblarc7 04-10-2013 6:31 PM

I would go up to 350.00

Check out the amps from crunch. You can buy them on ebay cheap. I have put in over 50 of these amps in boats. So far I have sent 3 back and one of them was my screw up. They work great and you want cry if one goes bad. I have used all these with wet sounds speakers. I like to tell people water and amps don't mix. Why put in 500.00 amps.

for just one pair an arc ks300.4 should be on the list. Should be able to score one without too much trouble from an authorized dealer within your budget.

oh nevermind. Buy houstonshark's hd750!

I've got a used HT4, but I think it's sold. I was actually powering a pair of Rev10's and did fine, could've been a little better though.

Thanks guys for now I think I'm going to go with the ppi 900.4. If I don't like it on the REVs I can always switch over to the inboats and ditch the crapy stock kenwood amp that's running four tower speakers and the sup right now. Since I still got to buy and perko and second battery plus all the wiring I can't beat 189.00.
