    Class D amps.. You pick the MFG.. Some are better than others but they all work off the same priciples..One of the best is Harrison Labs however I dont think they label them class D,X or anything else just that they draw less current than anyother amp of comparable power.

    I know of class T amps that are 90% efficient.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Class T is the same thing as class D only instead of being a low pass only it can be run full range.

    class t is basically the same..it is full bandwidth ..from what i gather it either switches faster or slower (heard 2 different stories) to get the noise out of the higher frequencies so being full range is possible....but i dont think anyone really uses them least anything besides subs

    Tripath developed it...hence class "T"

    I thought blaupunkt was the first class T on the market. Either way, they were the first to advertise it. Another thing about class T is that they're very small physically.

    Nasty...1200 watts is 1200 watts, but 1200 watts from a class D would be significantly less demand electrically than a similarly powered a/b. The 1200D has 3 30 amp fuses so you can assume it will draw something around that at full tilt. Nowhere near that at everyday listening volumes.

    Thanks for the reply

    But the new amp isn't gonna be a Lanzar, i think i'm going to buy a Audison lrx400.1 to power my sub.

    It gives a 500rms@3ohm, a little underpowerd but it wil sound great.

    And the overall value from Audison is far better then Lanzar, NOT?

    What do you think about the Audison?

    I would suggest a blaupunkt T class if you want efficency. They aren't made to put out a million watts but they have a clean sound to them and i highly recomend blaupunkt products.

    I couldn't have said that in so few words. Correct and to the point.
