    I am not too sure if that would not be classified as a sideways move.

    The BRZ 1200.1 would be an upgrade...best upgrade for the $$?, probably not.

    The new Zeus 1000 specs a lot like the old Brutus BXI and about the same price, but I have not put my hands on one yet.(same for the Gladiator line)

    I seen reports of the BRZ having reliability issues, but this could be due to user error as well.

    The BRE specs like the older BXI too, but runs about $100 more.

    You have to understand too that 1000's of the Hifonics are sold vs 100's of a similar competitor, therefore it would make sense to hear of a few more issues due to the sheer # of them being used.
    As far as getting sheer power close to rated, I feel comfortable saying "Go For It!"

    Re: upgrading my amp

    are u just going to run 1 sub ever?, i would suggest getting bigger amp since you are doing 2ohm on this sub and prepare when you upgrade for another sub so u dont have to replace your amp when u get another sub ie 1700 jsut throttle down the gain

    Ditch the Hifonics. Look for a better, more reliable amp.
