Best budget amp?

im trying to build a cheap system because i have a sub sitting around that no one has shown any intrest in here or on ebay so i figured id install it but dont want to spend alot...

what do you guys think is the best amp for about 50-60$ that runs 150-200rms and is decently reliable...

new or used it doesnt really matter but if its used i want it in good shape....

Spend 100 dollars and you can get a good amp. Don't buy an amp for less than 100 bucks, unless its like 50 watts rms its going to be crap.

You can find a legacy or pyle on ebay for around 60 + shipping. I bought a legacy for my truck and haven't had any problems with it.

my friend bought a 300 watt amp from walmart for like 50 bucks and it pushed his 12w3v2 really well, that is a 150 rms sub.

If I decided to stay with the 10" sub, think this 5 channel amp would be good for my 4 doors and the sub?
