Carver Pro Series PM-175 magnetic field power amp, awesome rugged amp for subwoofers
This is a "souped up" version of Carver's consumer amps from the late 1980s. Compared to the consumer version the pro amps add robust speaker protection, clipping indicator, signal detection and separate left/right volume controls.
It can more than double its rated output when strapped into mono making it an awesome 500 watt subwoofer amp! It's built to a much more rugged standard than the consumer models. Gnarly.
This rugged amp is fully functional but has seen its share of concert gigs. Boy is this thing UGLY!! It's covered with many many scratches and dings and chipped paint. Look at the photos before you bid! This is a workhorse, not a showpiece. Made in the USA.
I have been using this to drive 2 home-built 15" subwoofers and had the amp operating out of sight, so I didn't care about its looks. This is not to say the PM-175 is only for subs. Just for fun I hooked it up to my main speakers and it acquits itself nicely even going up against a Sunfire Symphonic Reference. (Compared to the Sunfire the PM-175 has a somewhat fuller bass in the 70-90 Hz range.) Unit will be wrapped in plastic film to protect further scratches to finish.
Specs from the Owner's Manual:
In addition I will include a set of TRS phone jack-to-RCA adapters if you wish to use this amp with traditional consumer equipment. I will include a printed copy of the owners manual (not original but a reprint).
From the Owner's Manual:
Its lightweight and rugged construction makes it ideal for touring and permanent installations. We are proud of our track record for excellent performance and proven reliability. The high quality standards Carver products provide is the quality that our customers have come to respect.
