    3Kw Lanzar Amp- too good to be true?

    cruisin on ebay i recently clicked on an auction for a lanzar amp that can apparently put out a ridiculous 3000watts. im not a beginner when it comes to audio and i know alot of companies can be extremly unreliable when it comes to wattage ratings. Im basiclly posting to ask if lanzar is a reputable company...i bought a home use power amp that claimed to be 1000watts a long time ago (not lanzar) , and when i benchtested it with dummy resistors and my o-scope, its was more around 200 watts before it began to crap-out. if this lanzar amp can smoothly put out half as much power as it says it can- im going to buy it hands down. any adivice, info, or opinions will be greatly appreciated.
    thanks alot

    Just by knowing that it's Lanzar, 3000 is the max. Youd be very. very, very lucky to get 1500 watts out of it, and it sure as hell wouldnt be smooth. There are much, MUCH better amps out there.

    I saw a bench test on them. Came up about 500W short of it's rated RMS power at 4ohm.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    the lanzar Vibe1200D is also good. quality might not be up there with the OPTIdrive series, but carsound benched tested the amp and it did little bit more than rated at.

    How does one go about bench testing an amp? Or where can I go to find out what amps have been tested by independants?

    Looking for Vibe248 1200... says 2x500 @ 2 ohm..

    Is that 3000 watt amp one of the rack mount amps? Everything I've seen on them says they're pretty accurately rated. Don't know much else.

    The new Lanzar (3000m) is being tested today and posted on the SPL forums.

    (I personally wouldn't buy their **** even if it did 4000 watts).
