Just picked up a Pyramid Phase 3...20 amp, is that big enough to run a Super Star 250 in the garage??

just try it and see. to me it would be a little lower than I would want to run the amp with. it may be hitting the top a lot and shorten the life of the amp. what size fuse does the amp have in it?

If you just have the amp on it, probably so, and expect 160 or so watts. With a radio would be questionable.

That PS is rated at 18 amps continuous, 20 amps peak, I'd run the SS250 on low power and you shouldn't blow the fuse or damage the PS. To run the SS250 on high you'll need at least a 30 amp PS.
