Rockford Fosgate R150X2 Prime 2-Channel Amplifier
It's easy to dismiss Rockford Fosgate's Prime lineup as the 'entry-level' choice, but doing so would be a big mistake. This Class-AB amplifier is quite slim and easy to set up, while delivering good power and clean sound for the price. The Prime R150X2 puts out 50 watts RMS per channel at 4 ohms, 75 watts RMS per channel at 2 ohms, and 150 watts RMS at 4 ohms when bridged - while these numbers may not blow away the competition, the output is respectable for the money. A heavy cast-aluminum chassis helps with heat management, and the amplifier monitors the output current and power supply temperature to avoid any damage to components. Variable high and low pass filters as well as variable bass boost allow control over the sound output. At just over $100, the Prime R150X2 is nearly a no-brainer.
