    any help on optidrive amps or audiopipe 1800s strapped.

    I am looking at buying 1 amp now and a matching one in a week or 2. Im wanting to strap them together at 1ohm. Im looking at optidrives 1900s or audiopipe 1800s. Any info anyone knows will be helpfull thanks.

    seems like it would be better to just buy a .5 ohm stable amp that would provide the output you seek. This one appears to be designed to be efficient at .5ohms, based on the almost doubling of output from 1 ohm to .5 ohm. A very impressive amp for the $.

    ps Lanzar is one of the only ones I am aware of (there may be others) that build a true .5 ohm stable amp and stand behind it. This would allow for safe 1ohm strapping on the .5 stable amps as well.

    Opti's in my opinion are a way better built amp than the audiopoops. I've owned both.

    thx, yeah they do not give specs for it, but they do state it will work on the right electrical. It looks to be more efficient at 1 ohm, judging by the doubling of power from 2 to 1ohm.

    Lanzar and Crescendo are both solid amps. Much nicer than any audiopoop. Hard to get that kind of power for less than 5 bills in a quality amp.
