Garage amp needed

I am in need of a 2 channel amp to run a pair of JBL speakers in my garage. I had an Onkyo 2 channel amp there for 10 years - but it died.

For garage use, is there a durable amp I should look at? I’ll be using my phone to stream music via Bluetooth.

I’ve run an pair of inexpensive Audio Source Amp 100s in my garage for the past several years. I’m not sure they’re still available though. I’d recommend literally any 50W + Class D amp you can find. They’re practically disposable these days.

Thanks for the input. My main concern is temperature / humidity swings and wondering if a pro amp would hold up better than a home A/V.
Audiosource is one I've been looking into - and will keep an eye out.

My Audio Source amps have been holding up fine in my un-air conditioned Houston garage. Mine have a volume knob which needs to be exercised every now and then but so far, so good.

I just repurposed an old receiver and it has been out there for nearly 20 years working diligently.
