I had a 100 watt per channel and fried the amp after using it to its max.... These play in a frat house so loud is the key ha ha i just want a amp that can blow up the speakers not the other way around....
You didn't fry the amp because of the speakers. If anything underpowering speakers will blow them faster than overpowering them due to distortion levels. Your old amp died on its own.
If you MUST run 150w RMS, this is the cheapest amplifier that I know of:
I'd rather recommend a good quality 100w RMS amp or receiver instead though honestly. The difference will be negligible, and you're likely to distort things badly either way if you really are cranking things THAT loudly.
There's also this Pyle:
Its a good bit cheaper, and for good reason. It claims 200w RMS at 8ohm though (I doubt it'll even do 100 though).
