    Lanzar Opti Mini Amps

    Anybody have experience with these? I've heard the Opti line is pretty solid. Looking at an Opti2x300d. Rated at 150rms x 2 @ 4ohm, 250rms x 2 @ 2 ohm, and 600max bridged @ 4 ohm. Small size is a plus, will go behind seat in a pickup.

    Re: Lanzar Opti Mini Amps

    I bought a refurb one of these on ebay for $109 shipped. It's not installed, but i tested it to make sure it wasn't DOA. I ran some test tones through it and it will do rated power + in 2ch mode. They don't really rate it in bridged mode, but based on my testing it will do 300+ bridged. (got it up to 485w bridged w/ the gains all the way up and no speaker attached.)

    Here's a pic of the internals since it's not on ampguts.

    Edit: testing was done measuring volts with a DMM, so take it for what it's worth.

    Interesting looking board. Clean enough - but I don't see anything that says "500w rms" to me. Hmmm??

    Can you post any higher res pix Chris? How big is that main transformer?

    I've come across a few people here and there buying and/or running those amps. Always asked for a review and never got one. Generally - no news is good news. People always seem to report back if they want to vent about their problems with a purchase -- you don't see many "works great, sounds great" reviews.

    Re: Lanzar Opti Mini Amps

    I don't think it will do 500 rms, lol. I got roughly 485w maxed out with no load. I'm thinking between 300 and 400 rms bridged on 4 ohm. (which is probably why they don't advertise the bridged output as rms, just max). Seems it will do the advertised 150w x 2 though.

    Honestly, I have no idea what I'm looking at when looking at internals, so I don't know what the main transformer is.

    There is a small circuit board? of some sort that hovers above the main board, i guess to save space.

    Here's a larger view of the same pic. If it's not clear enough let me know and I'll try to take some more pics.

    edit: When lookin at the pic in the link, you can click on "view original" just underneath it for an even larger pic.

    Re: Lanzar Opti Mini Amps

    the 250w x 2 rms rating equates to 500x1 at 4 ohms bridged.

    The main transformer is the donut shaped coil of wire in the lower right of the pic.
    Sometimes it's hard to tell just how large something is in a pic without something of known size near it.

    I'm no amp expert either, but I would guess that elevated board has to do with the full-range digital processing.

    Haven't you heard anything about the opti line? Very decent budget amps from everything I've heard. I don't think they are anymore, but the older ones were made in the US. Do a search.

    Re: Lanzar Opti Mini Amps

    i own a opti 100.2, solid amp, used it for comps, awesome amp! lanzar was a very reputable brand about 10-12 years ago in car audio, i still think highly of them but they are more popular in europe than here


    just my 2cents steer clear of anything below their optidrive line
