    I got this amplifier recently listed as a 4 pill and I've done a little bit of research but can't find anything on this particular model.
    I have found information on tx800 but not much else. I went ahead and took the cover off and turns out it's a 1 x 4 all mrf454 transistors. It's very obviously been tinkered with/ repaired with new resistors here and there and mismatched switches.
    If anyone could tell me when/where it was made, how much power to drive it with and what I could expect to see out of it I'd greatly appreciate it. It will be going in my truck with a president McKinley and a predator 10k. IMG_20180729_152042.jpg IMG_20180729_152100.jpg IMG_20180729_152144.jpg

    It looks like an amp that was at a repair facility and they did not know what was wrong with it and just started adding wire until it almost works. Good luck with fixing it.

    That looks nasty.
    It can be fixed up, but will take some time and work.

    Brand new, those amps work great but assembly wise they were quite cramped inside.
