Mid to late 80's amp, worked ok, but was nothing to write home about, were better choices for the same money so I never bothered with them. Always considered the Gray Near Bottom Shelf material.

I've had and ran a couple of these. I liked the earlier onethe best. Never had a problem with either of mine. Lots of audio and more than enough power to do what I wanted to do. Only sold them when truck drivers game me some stupid money for them. Kinda with I still had one. I do have a custom 4 2879 box that does really well with a good driver infront of it. I again liked the Gray 300

We went through quite a few amps, Started out we ordered a couple cases of the Gray amps, quality was a bit spotty, and we ended up with more then a few DOA. After that, even though the price was attractive I stuck with Messenger, Texas Star, Or TNT almost exclusively.
