Mini / Micro Amplifier Advice

Postby TemoMK1 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 10:34 am

Morning Gents,

I've been considering getting me a really small amplifier, the only two I know of locally is:
Stetsom : https://www.soundmatch.co.za/Products/P ... -amplifier
Audiobank: https://www.soundmatch.co.za/products/p ... -amplifier

It will only be for speakers, no sub required. The idea is to hide it in the dash or inside the rear wheel well behind the carpet.
Do you guys know of any other mini amplifiers?

Thanks

The only other i know of is the Rainbow beat 4 but it is not as small as the Stetsom but it is of better quality than both the above mentioned brands.
I think Targa has a small 4ch amp if i can remember its the Nano Series, but will stick to the Rainbow Beat though.

Have anybody played around with the Stetsom Iron line amplifiers.
Why would I be advised against using them?

I've personally owned that exact Audiobank Amplifier which I hid under my dash and it was freaking awesome, did an amazing job for its size (AYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY)
