Overview

Our take on the Blaupunkt GTA 2 Special

Blaupunkt GTA 2 Special amplifier

Enjoy lots of power and superb sound, all wrapped up in a sleek case that'll inject some style into your car audio system. Blaupunkt's GTA 2 Special 2-channel car amplifier dishes out 60 watts RMS per channel, a good choice for driving a pair of full-range speakers or components. Switch this amp over to mono mode, and you can run a subwoofer with up to 160 watts RMS. You can adjust the built-in frequency filters to get the most out of your speakers, while the bass boost will kick up the lows when the craving for bass strikes you.

Very versatile amp. Its small in size and sized perfectly for my system.

Very versatile amp. Its small in size and sized perfectly for my system.

Pros: Size and versatility

Cons: Screw terminals are weak. I broke the separator between the power and ground, I just applied too much force.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The quality you would expect from Blaupunkt! I connected this amp to a single sub and it works like it should. Definitely excellent "Bump for the Buck".

Pros: High quality with all the power, and sound quality, you need to drive a sub or two. Easy control adjustments to customize the Bump.

Cons: Very poor instruction/owners manual, but simple to figure out.

inexpensive amp

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great amplifier for the money. Running my pioneer 6x9 door speakers in my 93 Dodge D350 and all I can say is WOW what a difference! Perfect for my specific RMS. Does not overheat even when cranking up the volume. Suited my needs perfectly and made my set up rock! Easily drows out my Diesel engine and any road noise. Don't hesitate as long as your not needing gobs of power.

Pros: Price, Easy Hook Up, Old School Look, Great for Light Application

Cons: ZERO

The amp that was send to me looked used or off the shelf. It had soda stains, grease on the bottom and scratches next to the fuse. Even though the product was wasn't that expensive, I still expected to have new product. Other than that, the amp does great. Good bass sounds through my subwoofer.

Cons:

Crutchfield response on December 8, 2016 All products that Crutchfield sells as new items are purchased from our vendor partners as new stock. One of our Car Product Specialists, Carl, gave us permission to send this customer a new amp at no cost to him. Carl also followed up on the inventory for this Blaupunkt amp to make sure we have them properly marked.

Great amp for the price

Joseph L from Greenwood, IN on 11/28/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easily wired up on to a wall for the amp and crossovers I was using to power a pair of midbass speakers in the rear deck of my BMW. Can't complain about price and install ease. Blaupunkt is a known brand, so I wasn't worried about that part of it. Amp is heavy and large for the power output. I'm sure hoping that translates in to long life with quality components inside. I haven't touched it to see how warm it gets under load, but I'm not overly concerned. The passthrough was a must have for me, and the HPF as well. I'm still playing with it a little bit to get it just so, but it drives the speakers I bought it for quite well.

Pros: Price

Cons: Size (large for the power output)

Got a Gift Card and free shipping! Great amp to run sub. Made stereo system sound awesome. Highly recommend this amp for your system.

Pros: Easy hook up

Cons: None

Should have bought a better amp

Smixon from Fort Worth, TX on 9/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Yes this is an ok amp for under 100 bucks. However, if you want something that is going to last longer than a year than you need to spend the extra bucks and get a better brand. Or you could just keep buying cheapies?

Pros: Cheap price! That's it!

Cons: Cheaply built! Constantly overheats even with fans blowing directly on it and gain set to halfway. Measured sub impedance and it is 4.02 ohms. Checked voltage drop across power cables and remote line and voltage drop is less than .1V. This amp just gives out under use!

Big Bang for my Buck!

JKissell from Weiser, ID on 2/15/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have this Amp installed in my 91 Ford Escort Pony, i have it running two Rockford Fosgate P1572 5x7 full range speakers. very simple to hook up even with out the instructions (mine did not come with any paperwork , it was bought brand new from this site) for what you pay it feels just right and dose a tremendous job putting out the power and quality of sound to make any speakers sound incredible.fits under the seat and even has enough room to be out of the way if you have a passenger in the back seat. i have been using this device for abut two months now and have had no problems with it.

Pros: Great power, Dials right in for perfect sound out of my speakers, small

Cons: Did not come with instructions, but who needs them it was simple to set up.

Great amp

Alex from Pittsburgh, PA on 12/11/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have this amp in my 1991 Subaru, powering two 6.5" and two 5-1/4" speakers in parallel. Sound is clear and gets painfully loud without distortion. It's too big to fit properly under my seat and feels cheaply made, but it works very well and is easy to set up. The manual that comes with it is a bit useless, but there's plenty of information on Crutchfield's research section if you need help.

Pros: Inexpensive, stays cool, powers all 4 of my speakers, sounds great, all of the controls I need

Cons: feels cheap, sort of big, useless instruction manual

2 questions already asked

It should work. You will have to splice into speakerwire because I don't belive that your 8track player has rca jacks [ Mike  Oct 21, 2016 ]
I was really surprised with the power that the amp provided and impressed with the sound. I would recommend this amp to anyone. [ Gregory  Oct 21, 2016 ]
Yes, the Balupunkt GTA 2 Special has one pair of stereo RCA jacks that you can feed the audio signal from the RCA output on your head unit. You can use the amp to power one pair of your speakers and have the head unit's built-in amp power the rest. I hope that helps!
