    i've had it since I got the car 2 years ago.. it's an old sony 2 channel, maybe someone's dealt with sony's before?

    well i finally got new components in.. fire everything up, no sound and the offset light comes on. Whatever that means.. checked all my grounds, power, speaker wires. All good.

    So i stick in my sub amp just to see if the speakers worked and they did, albeit quite bassy :o

    The sony amp also blew a fuse when I started the car. :hsugh:

    Anyone have an amp they wanna get rid of? :hs:

    check over on caraudio.com in the classifieds. Lots of good stuff for sale over there. I'll vouch for you if you need. Same name over there.

    That us acoustic is special, designed by Zed audio. The main great thing about it is the build in power regulator. So u get the same power when ur car is on or off.

    Unlike most amps where u get more power when ur car is on (13.8-14.4v) and less when ur car is off (12-13v)


    But PG amps are nice too. Good choice on the RSD's too some of the best budget components.
