Hi, love the forum!
I have a question about replacing an amplifier. I am trying to hook up my dads old Technics SB-A32 system, and am running into some problems. For one, the mids aren't working on both towers. Also, the amp keeps turning off under high load, so i'm pretty sure it's overheating. The fan doesn't work anymore, so i think that may have something to do with that. In regards to the mids, i am going to see if replacing the amplifier will solve that problem before i go in and replace the crossover, to see if that's the problem.
I was wondering what kind of replacement amp i should get. I saw this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Insignia%26%23153%3B+-+200W+2.0+Channel+Ster...
But, i looked on the back of the current amplifier, and it said it has 355 watts. I'm not sure how many watts the speakers are, but i am pretty sure a 200 watt amp wouldn't be able to power these.
It seems that there aren't many two channel amps that go above 200 watts. So, should i get a 5.1 amplifier, that has around 400 watts? Since i'm only using two channels, would i be able to get that extra wattage into just two speakers?
Hope this makes sense, i can clarify anything if you need. Thanks in advance for the help!
Also, heres a picture of what the Technics look like:
