I was planning on adding a SGC Power Cube to my mobile rig, but they are not for sale anymore.   Can anyone make recommendations on a similar amp for mobile use.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Who says they're not for sale? They're still listed on the SGC web site, AES. and HRO. You might have to wait until the next production run, or look for a used one.

The Ameritron ALS-500. I have one in the car. It works fine.

Here is the real scoop, directly from SGC:



Dear Alan Applegate:

That is only a rumor, the SG-500 has not been discontinued.  It presently is not available because the company that we purchased the final transistors from stopped manufacturing these particular transistors without advising us. Our engineering department is actively looking for some stock of this transistor but in the meantime we are testing what we hope will eventually be replacements.  This will take a while and there will have to be some new engineering involved.  It could possibly be 4 months before we have any news which we will post on our web site.

Best regards
