    Precision Power Pro Art 100

    This is an old model for sure. Some of you have never even heard of it i bet. Who can scrape me up info on the power and ohm ratings of this amp?

    I am looking myself also, but you guys might find something that I might miss.

    None of these youngsters remember the art series. Those used to be the best amps you could buy. I've never had any experience with the 100, but I know the old A600 was 2x150 RMS, or 600x1 into 4 ohms. Judging from that your A100 should be 2x25, or 1x100. That's just an educated guess. Those amps are very underrated, so your 100 watts is probably really about 250 watts.

    Yeah, I'm sure these young bucks here have never heard of these. ;)


    This is the Pro Art 100, not the 100.2.

    This is what I got from someone else, it sounds right, but I'm still not 100% sure.

    100x2 @ 4 ohm stereo----200x2 @ 2 ohm stereo----400x2 @ 1 ohm stereo----400 @ 4 ohm mono----800 @ 2 ohm mono

    The attached pic is what I have here..........

    Top is the Pro Art 100
    Then under that a 1200.2
    Next we have a 600.2
    Last there is a 300.2

    Wanna use all these in an Astro Van install for my painter and I need the specs on the Pro Art 100 so I can make sure I use it to it's full advantage for him.
    :D

    Welcome to 1996, LOL

    you are correct on the ratings/ ohms.

    FYI---- Original 1996 list price --- $1399

    the A1200.2 was only $1299 but can do 1200x1 into 4

    Back in the day where I worked we did not sell PPI amps and referred to them as a Pretty Poor Investment.

    Yeah, I know they are old as hell. But I was amazed he had all those in good condition. They go for a pretty penny in that condition.

    Soon to be in a wild install.

    I remember a bunch of cars in our area running those amps back then. All seemed to have a white vehicle and white formica covers sub boxes with white, white , White, WHITE everywhere. To be different it was White with splatter paint that matched the amps.
    :puke:

    I knew a kid that was running 4 Kicker comp 15's (the old ones that said KICKER in gold) off 2 A1200's. That was 12 years ago, and I still haven't heard a louder stereo. I don't care what anyone says, those old art series amps are some of the best ever made.

    I know what they sell for but notice I said where I worked we didn't sell PPI? We said pretty poor investment because the competitors down the street sold them. BTW welcome to 2004

    What an old bump.

    But since thids was bumped, the van is getting re-done. It has already been repainted and will get a new stereo using these amps.
    Or maybe I should just sell him some Sundowns and keep these for myself?:eek:
