    I just found one of these at a good used price. I can´t afford anything more right now. I just want it to be as loud as a Thunderfunk into my 8 ohm 15". How much does the TFB420 give into 8 Ohm?
    What do you think? We don´t play that loud and this amp will more than likely keep it´s resale value until I got the funds to upgrade.

    Sounds like it, that thing does 500W at 8ohms bridged. Might even be louder . . . . .

    The TB420 does what? About 300?

    But 500W is the peak power rating, right?

    Ah yes, my bad, so its doing about 260 then. If the Thunderfunk does do around 300 at 8ohms and both ratings are legitmate (and theyre both VERY well respected companies) then there shouldnt be a difference.

    PS- Nice avatar! :D

    Bridged at 8 Ohms I see 300W.

    LabGruppen are nice power amps. And quite expensive, too.
    Almost got one used some time ago... but I was seriously outbid...
