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.

got my old bazooka pounding again
Fast delivery, great price and easy installation. I use it to substitute a similar amplifier that got fried. Is working great.
Pros: Great Price!
Using amplifier to push a POLK AUDIO 8in subwoofer. Very nice, clean sound. The amplifier appears well made and solid. Thank you , Crutchfield...
Pros: Easy to set-up and adjust.
Cons: None so far...
Love the product and the team really helped me out in a jam on picking it out and making sure it will work for what I need.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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

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!
