Did this video help you?

Phillip Boudreaux: U selling any of these amps?

Jeffrey K: So u sell them?

Joshua Moore: any chance you might in the near future do a dyno test on the 400x4 I have one and I was curious to see what kind of power it makes?

Gen X Murse70: Last night someone on my street left a pile of trash to the curb.  I immediately noticed an old-school RF Punch X250.2.  It was missing the end caps, and it looks like it has seen better days, but so what?  I took that baby home.  I'm going to try testing it this weekend, fingers crossed!

splash: nice!
reminds me of the good ol days...
ran a Punch 40 for all my components, and Punch 60 for 2 10" Punch subs in my Iroc. System sounded really good. Then i bought a Punch 200... Thats a killer amp.
Was gonna run 4 10"s off that amp, but by that time got busy with work and being an "adult" lmao, so car went into storage...
Miss those days!
Still have the car with the Punch system.
Head unit was a Fosgate aswell, with remote. People thought it was cool crap back in the day when that stuff was still newer tech...

Shazad Hassan: Non Chinese manufacturered dog crap range. Wish I never sold my old skool RF amp collection in 1997!!

Eliasib Guzman: hey D i have a punch 700s and i was wondering if u new which jumper to remove to make it drop to a lower ohm load

CARY MICHAEL: I installed a 4080 in my pick-up some twenty years ago, it's still going strong after all these years. If I ever sell the vehicle this amp will be staying with me.

Maria Arias: Just got a 4040 in good condition never opened sounds to clean barely warms up

car audio solutions: i have a few gems on my channel.

car audio solutions: i want them all.

Sam Shumway: thanks for that video. I'm a huge Rockford fan and collector. I would seriously be interested in buying a lot of those old punch amps. if interested let me know!!!

deairreo hill: on my 125.2 the full range was on a separate card witch I didn't have

mvf212: man I need some end caps

nikonman1: I can't get enough of your videos. I still have a 60x2 and 100x2 that has moved through several cars I've owned and been in daily use since the late 90's. They still get the job done and anyone who rides in my truck for the first time is always impressed with the sound. I'm sure I could buy something more powerful and more efficient to replace them with, but no since fixing what isn't broken (and not likely to ever break).

Kevin Nieto: Is possible to run a punch 100ix at 2 ohm mono? I have a kicker compVR it's the old school model that's all black with red kicker logo it's a dvc 4 ohm have it in a ground shaker box. I picked up that amp for $40 on offer up its in mint condition came with end covers it's a nice looking amp

Mario M: As you said, Ken C. Pohlmann, the reviewer at CSR, rated these amps as simply the best. This guy was super -picky, a HUGE audio snob, he's a hot shot scientist. He tested all equipment on his own Porsche. His endorsement pretty much convinced me to invest in Punch amps at the time. I wasn't disappointed.

Ken Rivers: other people went with orion and pheonix gold but nothing beat rockford for good quality hard hitting bass! I had punch 200 and a punch 60 on the highs but my babies were 2 HX2e 15' lawd have mercy!

MrAllthisswamp: you have any that work for sale

l337pwnage: Memory lane. I had Punch 60 back in the day and ran my whole car off of it, two 12" punch drivers, and 10 other drivers. Worked awesome. Later on I bought a 40 for the mids/highs and just put the 60 on the subs. Definitely cleaned up the bass when the amp didn't have to do all that other work.
I'm sure everybody knows this, but DSM = Discrete Surface Mount. It was a new tech at the time. Basically just another step in miniaturization letting you cram more stuff on a circuit board.
