BLT needs an amplifier. 250 watts would be the best, but a little more or less is fine. BLT bought a new subwoofer as part of its equipment upgrade, but our grant would not cover an amplifier to power it.
BLT had a 150 watt amp laying around. It had been used to to drive 2 cassette decks. It turns out the amplifier does not actually work. BLT may pay to get it fixed, but the sub-woofer really wants a 250 watt amp or more to make it happy. 250 watts plus will also let you feel those thunder storms in your bones. (Anything in the 200 watt plus range would be fine.)
So if you have an amplifier laying around, please think about giving it to BLT. It does not matter if it has a tuner with it or not, BLT will just be using the amplifier.
