I have a friend who wanted to sell me a Rockford Fosgate 1000d. I respectfully declined, as I have a Hifonics Brutus BXi 2006D. His comment after that just has me pissed off.
"I did some research on your amp and its some off brand thats not competition series and clearly and well over rated in power. They say it prolly only produces 800 watts max, which I guess is kinda decent".
He then went on to say:
"Yours is over rated because it gets people like you to buy it thnking that it pushes that many whats (he means watts LOL) but in reality it doesnt."
I just told him that I did my research and knew what I was getting. I told him yes, hifonics is off brand, yes it is over rated. If I wanted a 2000 watt amp I would have chosen another amp.
He then goes on to say:
"Another thing is your amp doesnt produce clean sound either, more distortion than anything. Thats why you blew that sub right after i sold it to you lol remember". (He's referring to a Rockford Fostgate t1 that we blew with it.)
I dont even know how to respond to this guy. Im half tempted to tell him if he's so confident in his amp that we will go and have them tested and if my amp pushes more power, he hands me over his amp for free. If his amp pushes more power, I will hand over mine. However Im a bit nervous to pull the trigger on that challenge, as I am not totally sure that mine pushes more.
