So I bring my boat into the shop to troubleshoot the amp problem I have been having intermittently and was told that the amp (Boston Acoustics GT-50) has a bad channel and needs to be replaced. I bought it in 2006 and had it sent in to BA and repaired in 2007 for the same problem I am currently having. I was told today that the amp only has a 90 day warranty after it has been repaired. Does this sound right?

I am wondering if it would be best to buy another one of these to replace the broken one or do I get a different brand? Crutchfield has this $700 amp for $269. Not sure if any other manufacturer can even come close to this price for a 55W X4 + 250W X 1, 5 channel amp.

Other option is to run my sub (W6) with a Kicker ZX300.1 that I took out of my truck and just buy a separate 4 channel amp to run my tower speakers (JL Audio VR's).

What are your guys' thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Check out the Kicker ZX700.5 5chnl amp, simply bullet proof.

70W rms x 4 @ 4 ohms
85W rms x 4 @ 2 ohms

420W rms @ 2 ohms class D sub chnl
210W rms @ 4 ohms class D sub chnl

Remote bass control, only single RCA input needed. Should be able to locate for close to the price of another BA.

Or, use the ZX300.1 that you have for the sub, and pick up a Kicker ZX350.4. Nearly the same specs as the class AB side of the 700.5

Thanks, Mike. I found a 700.5 for $250 on craigslist. may just have to go that route.
