    Crossfire VR1000D or Memphis PR1000D?

    Powering two 12" Type R's wired to 1-ohm (500 RMS each)


    Excuse my ignorance, I have searched the forums extensively for both. Both get quality reviews and I feel I can't go wrong with either, just thought I'd throw it out there for brief debate to see what people have to say.

    we used the vr1000's for a while, and they're rock solid amps..they're both basically the same, but the crossfire is a better piece.

    crossfire > memphis

    ya i agree. I didnt like my memphis too much, i find it to have a more distorted sound no matter what the gain is set at.

    ive accidentally put the + in the - and the - in the + on 6 vr1000d's (w/ the protection circuits removed) on a 17v system and they still worked prefect..they'll play music at nearly any load and dont get too hot..probally one of the best 1000d's imo. Id take it over a bd1000, kx1200, cx1200, 75.1, db1100, etc etc (owned/tested all of them)

    Both are great amps, i would say the Crossfire is the better amp and would compare more to the Memphis higher MC class of amps.

    Ok - add a third amp to the mix

    Diamond D5 1200.1 vs. Crossfire VR1000


    Interesting how these things never seem to end

    Why? most everyone said the Crossfire is better. I've owned many Crossfires and not only are they way under rated but they have audiophile SQ.

    I've got a BMF1000D in my pu thats been road hard and put away wet everyday for the last 6 years and it still rocks! Zero issues with my Crossfire amps.

    I was a big LinearPower lover since the late 80's until I tried a Crossfire.

    Also! The newer CF have a 7 year warranty(not that you'll need it).

    The crossfire VR and older BMF amps not only put out so much more power compared to what they they are spec'd at but the sound quality is very impressive as well. Diamond has lost it in the last few years since they changed ownership.
