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. :(
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.
aXXo47: I have this amp, it's powering my 2 Kicker 12's. It does a pretty good job
I think, I got it from my Dad, it's like 15 years old haha.
Dereck 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
pinkonemd: What numbers did this put out on the bench?
ajaake: 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.
Dereck 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!
pinkonemd: How does this compare in power to the 1990's punch 45
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.
Dereck BigDWiz: ebay or come join my group on facebook-com/groups/oldschoolstereo
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 ...
pinkonemd: Hey I just got this old but mint never installed in the original box.All of
the following is also original styrofoam, set of wires for intalation,
screw set for intalation, plastic bag to cover the amp, and owners manual.
This amp has been tested once but it was never used ever. No marks or dings
on the amp the wires have never been cut at all. The wires still have the
shiping shape to them. I think that I best puting it on e bay. How much do
you think I will get for this new amp?
Dereck 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....
pinkonemd: How does this compare to the 90 45 hd in power.
pinkonemd: I just found one just like this but new and never installed the amp is mint
a perfect 10. The wires have never been cut All of the following is all
original and came in the box. 1. Manual 2. Styrofoam 3. Intalation wires 4.
All wire harness all wires still have the shiping shape, intalation screws,
plastic bag. This set is just as you opened it for the first time today.
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.
