    Non audio transformer problem

    My transformer for a neon sign died.  I have fried a couple with different specs trying to find something that worked, no luck yet.  It has a 12vdc 2000mA output and 120VAC 60HZ input.  What should I be looking for as a replacement?

    $600-900 for a frat house system

    I have about 6-900 to spend on a system for a basement. It needs to be loud and preferably not distort. While I guess loudness is a priority here, for my sake something that doesn't destroy everything but the bass is certainly wanted. It also needs to take some abuse... maybe a lot. Any ideas...
