    I think someone should buy the brz 2400 and the aq 2200 disassemble and compare components and component specs. lol

    Re: Hifonics HFi 2500d vs. BRZ2400.1

    Even if they were all the same I'd pay the diff to run AQ just so nobody would see hifonics junk in my ride....

    Same has been said about sundown amps, very similar to others when looking at gut shots. As mentioned 10 times already, board/layout doesn't mean much. Caps, fets, etc... can vary greatly in prices and make a diff in output, reliability, etc...

    You'd pay more just for the name? Manufacturers love that mentality. LOL

    I'd love to not only see clamp results of all of these amps but also a blind listening test by somebody who believes they might actually hear the difference between these amps and be able to distinguish the cheapy amps from the more expensive ones

    I was really impressed by the apsm2000 that i used while waiting for my saz1500. I had it at 2ohms, it was a current hog compared to the saz, but it did pretty good for its price point. It is in the closet, i will be keeping it, just in case.

    Re: Hifonics HFi 2500d vs. BRZ2400.1

    It's funny I saw this thread. I actually called Hifonics on Friday to ask about their amps. I wanted to know how they were rated as far as quality since there are so many models. I was on the phone for about 30 minutes. From our conversation, the Hifi is their entry level amp. The Zeus line would be next. The BRZ and Gladiator amps he said were comparible to each other with the rumor that the Gladiator(being discontinued and gone soon) has a slightly better sq than the BRZ, but he didn't think you could hear it. The Gladiators are on clearance from Sonic Electronics now, which is what I'm planning on buying to run my 2 Obsidian 12's. The Gladiators were more expensive in the beginning because they polished the exterior and made it look "pretty". The BRZ and Hifi I was told to be different because of the quality of Fets and the Heat Sink on the BRZ was upgraded. The Brutus Elite I was told has upgraded fets over the standard BRZ amp. I was not aware of how products get to the "gray market" and how "non authorized" dealers get product, so I asked him about that. He informed me that most all defective merch that comes back from their dealers gets checked out, refurbished and then those products sit around until they are wholesaled out. Those wholesalers then buy boxes from Hifonics and repackage and sell as new. Seems like Hifonics should wholesale the products themselves with no warranty and let the public know that they are refurbished.

    not sure if you bought already but the gladiator does not go that high on wattage, highest is 2200 which priced at $239 at sonix but the brz 2400 is $274, if you are trying to get to 2k amp the BRZ 2400 is what you want. then next up at 3k will be the zeus zrx 3000.1d then the colossus at 3500.1

    hope this helps
