Additional amps

Post by fiero11 » Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:55 am

I have a chance to get a couple of carver 500t amplifiers on the bay, but I currently running a 1.5t on a pair of Polk SDA's. Should I just wait and try to get another 1.5t amp to run the back set of Polks or get the 500t's and add them to my system; and yes I'd love to have a sunfire, but can't afford it at the moment.

the 500t's are going for about 350 and 100 consectively right now, but the lesser of the two will need some work done on it...probably new caps. \:D/

you think that fellow will come down below 300 on the 500t...I would pay that fo it...and I would pay 100 for the one that needs repairs , you think that a fair price?
