darknature79: i know you know a little more thsn most about the punch amps but in the 150 they have 4 fuses are they all supposed to be same rating? i opened mine up because 1 ch wasnt working and there are 3 bigger like 25 amp fuses and 1 6 amp. is that normal and supposed to be like that?
susan heath: bought one at the flea market this past weekend for 10 dollars and it works. of course I live near this BIG flea market and find the mega deals all the time. every weekend .oh I find old school amps from the 80's and early 90's all the time out there. AND make BIG money resale on EBAY!! just bought a 400a2 for 20 dollars and sold it 250. I LOVE IT!
marcellino smith: I JUST GOT HOLD OF ONE OF THESE O/G PUNCH 45s,AN JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT I PULLED OUT MY KENWOOD 921 FAN COOLED 2-CHANNEL AMP THAT I HAD PUSHING 2 DVC 10in.SUBS A KICKER CVR,AN A ALPHASONIK PSW810E,AND THE PUNCH 45 HITS HARDER,AN CLEANER THAN THE BIG KENWOOD!!!
Ryan Malin: Growing up, my Mom had a Punch 45 in her 1985 Mustang GT. Even with loud exhaust and t-top windows removed, you could still hear the radio clear as hell. That might have been the intro to my hearing damage. :(
BigDWiz: The 1st gen Punch 45 is slightly less powerful. Around 40W per channel at 4 ohms, 60W per channel at 2 ohms or 120W bridged at 4 ohms. The 90's Punch 45 and 45HD do around 150W bridged at 4 ohms
BigDWiz: ebay or come join my group on facebook-com/groups/oldschoolstereo
CJ Dowling: Can you recommend a good place to sell an old Punch 45? I have a Punch 45 and a 4600x that I am looking to sell.
BigDWiz: @sleepr2ride The one I have is not an original and looks like it was made in MS Word. I have an original HD series manual, but no original 1st or 2nd gen. Scan, copy, PDF or original would be GREAT!
Sleeper SS: did you ever get that PDF manual for your Gen1 punch 45?? i just recieved my punch 30 in the mail and it came with a copy of the manual too ( for the punch 30 ) and an original manual for the gen2 45,75,150 .. if your still looking for that manual, let me know, i might know some ppls in Ohio ...
Kevin Nieto: What makes me mad is that I know a someone who has this amp I thinks it's either a 75 not sure but he keeps on insisting it will power a set of kicker solo L7s like nothing I told him no it won't (it will but not for very long!) point is I just hate to see them being abused. Oh well they were built pretty solid it's his amp anyway.
carey tisdale: I witness this amp in progress on two 12's. And got damn, that litte power house rock. Man i couldnt believe it all that bass it put out. And the amp wasn't up half way. those was the days.
BigDWiz: @ajaake I agree, it is my favorite old school Punch amp. I've done some testing with my Infinity Perfect 12VQ sub and I absolutely could not believe the power this amp puts out. I'll put up a demo video soon so others can be believers....
Jacob Rogers: I have one of these, and let me you, the damn thing is indestructible. It will absolutely make a 12inch sub pound with plenty left over. Raw Power, they don't build them like this anymore.
