But..I have Circuit City and Best Buy to choose from..egh.

BB has a 600w Kenwood for ~$150, but that's 2-3 times what I'd like to spend - I have a pair of Pioneer 8" free-air subs kicking around..nothing fancy. I have everything else running off my HU (Pioneer DEH P4000 - 2x Pioneer 5 1/4s & 2x JBL P-632 6.5s - one JBL is messed up, though..so it's unplugged - I may see if JBL will replace it..who knows..it has a buzzing sound - if I put my finger on the speaker, it stops)...aside from bass distortion at moderate volume, it's okay for me.

This is what I've found so far:

Wal-Mart <-- 200w Pioneer 2-channel

Circuit City <-- MTX 2-channel...2x50 or 1x100. They also have a 60x2 @ 4ohm Bazooka amp for $89.99..

Any recommendations..? I'm not a huge audiophile..but I don't want crappy sound either - if it's on par with my Z560s, I'll be very happy. I'm not quite expecting that from a $60 amp, though...

haha...haven't seen this thread in a while. I sold my subs, though, and have a cheap 2x120w amp if anybody wants it..heh

Edit: Not much hardware left...a modded ATX case (used to be beige..very boring)..now black w/window cut - no plexi installed yet, but I have it here...an old 'clicky' IBM keyboard (built like a tank)...Soundblaster Live..Celeron 733 w/slocket..I think that's about it.
