Are you selling these or those are the prices that you might buy them for?

If you are buying then DO IT!! Those prices are good but should include shipping. I have a 1200.1 and a 180.2. The 1200.1 i paid around $220 USD. After exchange, duty and shipping it workout out to the $400 mark. The 180.2 worked out to around $200. The price for the 80.4 and the 180.2 are around the same.

They are great amps and make a bit more than they are rated of clean power. I think the 1200.1 was tested for a 1350wrms. One disadvantage of these amps is the lack of processing. The 1200.1 doesn't have a subsonice filter and they both only have 12db/oct x-overs. If all you need is raw power then these amps are PERFECT!

Good reliable power from these amps.
SQ isn't the best out there but a good performer.

I used to have a jbl 150.1 running two small 12", and while it did the job, it tended to overheat and cut out in the summer on long drives. Granted, this was a few summers go, a real hot one, and I was running the system for hours on end in the heat, in traffic, etc, and it had very little ventilation, and I was an amatuer, etc etc etc, but it did do it.

If I let it cool down a while it was fine, but
even in cooler weather it tended to get way hotter than my much bigger rockford has ever got.

Despite this, it did the job quite well for its small price tag.
