    Re: Lanzar amps and why they ****.

    Yeah I have an Opti 2000D, had it for about 6 months. Works great, no problems out of it. I just orderd a Opti 200x4 for my components. I have never tried anything other then their Opti line, but so far I have been very happy.

    Re: Lanzar amps and why they ****.

    A friend of mine bought a Lanzar Vibe series amp when he got his first system. It never really did its rated power but it did **** well to have only paid 140 bucks for it. It was good for 139 db's on a new termlab with two Premier subs and a 4.5 cu ft. ported box that was way underported all inside an extended cab f150. He sold them as a group and to this day their still working good as far as I know.

    Just so everyone knows. It's rated for 380w at 4 ohms bridged.

    j/c what were your cuurent and vac readings?



    1 volt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)]

    1 watt = 1 joule / second
    1 watt = (1 Newton)(meter) / second
    1 watt = [1 kg/(second^2)] (meter) / second

    simplifying we find:

    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter)] / (second ^3)


    therefore:

    P = (I)(V)

    1 watt = (1 volt)(1ampere)
    1 watt = ( [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)] )(1 ampere)
    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / (second^3)


    And that is WHY Power is in the SI units of Watts. enjoy!

    Re: Lanzar amps and why they ****.

    I have only owned one lanzar amp, it was a lanzer Vibe I forget what the model is. It worked fine for me, usually could run for about ~3 hours straight before shutting off at 2 ohms. This was 3 years ago. I still have it but havent used it so I dont know if it still works.

    I've seen the 2000D. Pretty beefy looking board. Haven't seen the 200x4 before. Looks like an awful lot of amp for $250.

    Yeah sure is alot of amp there. I upgraded from a sony so now I have a real amp . I have been really happy with the Lanzar Opti Driver line so far. Cant wait to set all this stuff up to go active, I am going to work on that this weekend .

    I dont think there too bad, one of my buddys had one rated at 1400 watts and i could tell that wasnt true wattage but it wasnt to awful sounding and wasnt too distorted.

    Re: Lanzar amps and why they ****.

    I have the older vhc 1200. I friggin love it, besides its huge stature. I mean it litterally takes up my whole back seat. I have it running on 2 alpine type r's, the 2005 ones and it has hit 144.3 on the 190/ac and 140.2 on the tl. Not to bad considering.

    The opti drive series are excellent amps. I am saving up to get one hopefully buy next summer.

    Plan is to do an optidrive 2000 on 2 12'' optidrive subs. Subs are 1300rms. Should be interesting to see what kind of numbers I get with that. Just have to sell some of my current equip.
