    Sorry for the late reply.

    Yes, the ONYX amps do rated and in most cases, more then the specs reveal.

    The ONYX are the Discus replacements but we have made upgrades and board lay out changes to improve THD & N, changes to better improve efficiency, thermal balance for concistant power through out the extreme temperature ranges caused by mounting locations and geographical locations.

    The pre-amp has gone through a few minor changes to improve the linearity of the potentiometers and reduced THD & N.

    There are also the obvious cosmetic changes as well.

    We are selling 25% more ONYX then the previous Discus models and returns are also lower so it's working pretty well so far.

    This is a nicer amp that is underrated for the same price as the DSC2000.1D, and does more at 2ohm 40%+ more

    almost bought one but 15-1600watts is plenty for me
    Its not a secret that they do more than rated... they have been bench tested bro...

    On a side note why dont companys start making youtube videos of them bench testing their amps at 4,2,1 ohm... if they do rated or even more than rated then it wouldnt hurt.. only help I would buy one right then and there if i could see a bench test

    No $hit bro

    its not going to do 33%more at 2ohm period. At 1ohm the do maybe 200w over, which is 1700/1500= 13% BRO

    Its not my fault you cant figure your ohms out, I recommended a better amp at 2ohm which is what you said



    BTW I own a MB Quaurt DSC1500.1D and its a great amp!!

    Compared to the Onyx i think they are the same, just appearance is changed so if that is the look you want and its worh $50 then get it. I think its a no brainier to get the DSC. I plan on using mine on 2x 1243D Type R's and should be the perfect amp to get ~800W to each.

    I just hooked up an Audiopipe 1500D last night in my girls car and it sounds pretty good also, deff has power and is alot smaller then the MB Quart I have

    Is the chance over 80% that the dsc does over 1000 rms at 2 ohms? If so, I going to buy it. I need 1000-1200 rms at 2 ohms.

    Buy: $229

    What is the status of the ONYX 2000.1d?
    I had heard there was a plan to build them but, haven't heard a release date.
    I wouldn't think it would be a problem to stuff their guts into an ONYX chassis with same changes you mentioned.

    Actually, in series it would be 16 ohms in parallel it's 1 ohms.
