4x50WRMS @ 12V is what it's rated at. realistically, probably around 70WRMS at that supply-voltage, and more with 14.4V.
ideal for running speakers. not bad for subs too of course, though a monobloc or the bigger 2-channel amps of the same series would be better (eg: MRV-1005, MRV-1505).

Was thinking of running my MB Quart splits off 1 & 2 and some rear fill off 3 & 4.
If I do upgrade to a more power hungry set of splits I've got the power!

they retailed around $1000 when new. i would expect to pay around $300~400 for one in very good to excellent condition.

I bought it based on shiny's solid recommendation on the power stats, and got it whithin the correct price range aswell,
Thanks Tegboy, it's nice to know that I have actually learnt something from this site, and did buy the right thing.

Very impressive amp and put out way more than the "outside packaging advertised specifications". It was a shame to sell it with the car (I knew I wasn't going to have a big system in the new car so there was no point in keeping it).
I picked it up "ex-demo" from Precision Installations @ Blakehurst for $900 I think (that was about 5 years ago at a rough guess).
That old series of Alpine amps had alot more power than the series released after it (which had already been on the market for about a year or so when I bought it) which is the main reason I bought it. You can never have too much clean power!
