Opinions on the brand Power Acoustik

Hey guys Im looking for an amplifier. I am on a budget & I would like to power 4 Alpine type r speakers and i would like to power them. I have been looking at a couple amps but the are very expensive. Then I stumbled on this one. Power Acoustiks CPT4-1200. Has anyone ever heard of these guys. I really never had. Im woundering if they are any good. for the price it looks ok. I can probably get one of these for like 150-200 dollars. I saw one on ebay for like 100 bucks though. Any Ideas.

Try looking into Hifonics. There are a good bang for the buck too and only 20% over rated.

I actually dont mind Power Acoustik. Some of their stuff (probably most of it) is kinda crappy, but if you get the right amps they are decent. Obviously not as good as some of the more expensive stuff out there, but as said above, bang for buck they are good.

So do you think this stuff would go well together?

POWER ACOUSTIK CPT4-1200

ALPINE SPR-69C CAR AUDIO 6X9 2-WAY

ALPINE SPR-17C 6.5 inch

what wiring would you use for this set up?

& what do you mean by it the amps are overated.

$200.00, I can get you a Pioneer 4 channel amp including tax and shipping that will make your speakers sound just fine.

SPL
Farenheit
Kole audio

There are a few models that are actually half decent. If i remember correct i believe the A3000DB was a good one, and i personally owned an LT1920/2 and it was quite decent.
