Hey there guys, my name is Kris and I own 11 PG amps, some components, a sub, etc... I have to say after listening to many different series of PG amps, the Sapphire series amps are freaking amazing. They are not rated at very high power figures, but this puppies really rock and never shut off. I have to say these amps are extremely clean and have a decently small foot print per wattage output.
I own three Sapphire SA3.0x and two SA1.0x amps. I picked all of them up for around or under $100.

I am running the SA3.0x amps on both front stage and on a sub, and in both instances every thing is tight and precise. No distortion what-so-ever.... An I run the SA1.0x on rears in two different vehicles and again they are great for rear fill since not a ton of wattage is necessary.

If you do not have any of the Sapphire series amps, you should hear them. They appear to be modeled after the MS series amps. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

the images are not showing up for me. saphire was an entry level for pg but it would have been a premium level for most of the other brands of the time. Next to the other pg line of the time it just was 2nd fiddle to a stradivarius but certainly not a bad sounding or looking amp.

I updated the links and now the pics are coming thru. Please don't laugh at my install. It's always a work in progress. It's about the sound anyways, lol.... 8)
