    There is also an ad in your local Craig's List as well.

    They look to be about the same as the BRZ line but with a black case vs brushed alum.

    I have the BRZ 2100 and they have been 110% and very efficient. IMO, a solid amp.

    That price seems good to me.

    Thats not too bad. I dont recall how much the regular Brutus cost, but I believe it is quite close to that price. I looked up the Elite and it just looks to be a "special edition", with a black heat sink. I dont really see much other than that. I am sure they are really close to the same thing, if not the same exact product with a different heat sink.

    They are different model # from the BRZ line and rated at just a tad less.

    Re: Brutus ELite 1600d steal?

    prob more expensive for the PAs im willing to bet... ive had 2 brutus's in my time and been very pleased with them. im confused the specs i see for those PAs are 1800watts @ 2ohm(2500max) and the brutus is going to be 1600 @ 1 ohm... what are your subs resistances?
