If we can be honest with you that would be best. Your thoughts on that?

I believe "volfenhag" is Chinese for "ha ha sucker we got your money!"  I would not waste any of mine on that brand.  How much can you spend and maybe we can suggest something better for you.

why not stay with the whole Teutonic engineering thing and consider a nice little Blaupunkt amp... they are now bringing a lot of previously unavailable Euro models to NA for 2005....

Blaupunkt is a brand I can recomend, and they use genuine "Teutonic engineering" as their designs come out of Germany.

Volfenhag is made by the same knock-off company as "Performance Teknique."  Real junk.

Would that be 1600 real watts or 1600 advertised watts?

You certainly couldn't get 1600 Sony watts for that amount.

But there's a whole slew of brands that will give you 1600 watts for under $300.  Trouble is, you don't want them and you don't want their watts.

How about talking in real world terms?  RMS.  People ask me how many watts I've got in my system...I tell them 400...they stare at me like I've grown horns.  All these uninitiated think in terms of 1000 or higher when they talk of watts now.  They see watts in the thousands advertised on everything that has wires and can go in your car.  What the hell is that all about?

So then when they're staring at me slack-jawed I confide to them that I'm talking about real watts.  I like to see their vacant stare and half-hearted nodding head that way...
