I have 2 tp1200 i am looking to power http://www.amazon.com/TP1200-300W-Tower-Speaker-Syst/dp/B002VLQHLM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328318128&sr=8-1 Is there a amp that does 150watts rms for 2 channels at 8 ohms? I searched but the most i can find is around 100 watts per channel i am trying to keep it cheaper hopefully <300$

Thanks for your help/expertise redface.gif

Last I checked, $100 was indeed cheaper than $300.

Regardless, I've seen lots of car amps that go in that range, if you want to hack something together. If you want it to be pretty, might be more difficult and expensive. I'm not that familiar with receivers that do more than 100w though, simply because I haven't ever needed to look for one.

Those speakers would run just fine with 100w RMS though. Just pick a good quality receiver, and that'll do the job fine honestly. If you feel that you need more power later (you shouldn't...but if you do), you can always amplify the speakers later with a seperate amplifier.

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:
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=302-652

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.

EDIT:
There's also this Pyle:
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=248-480

Its a good bit cheaper, and for good reason. It claims 200w RMS at 8ohm though (I doubt it'll even do 100 though).

For $300, this is easy: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=245-500

Rated 215W RMS into 8 ohm. $300.

If you can afford $400: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=245-502

Those Crown amps will definitely put out a ton of power.
