    Hifonics Amps

    I'm thinking about getting a Hifonics amp, does anyone know if the ratings on their amps are the RMS rating or the peak?

    Re: Hifonics Amps

    Which amp are you looking at specifically? Someone here can tell you if it will do rated and how much it will put out rms.

    BRZ line does rated... every test I've seen clamped they put out rated power. That one will do 2100w rms at 1ohm

    Sweet. I heard from the rumor mill the Brutus line was designed by Zed Audio, is that true

    I believe they were modeled after the zed made lanzar optis... I don't think hifonics has been zed made since the 90's... the v series or something. This is a solid amp though... google for some gut pictures.

    Have fun with it... make sure you're feeding it solid voltage or you will not be happy with the performance.

    At the risk of sounding ignorant what exactly do you mean by that?

    You will likely need to do electrical upgrades. Youtube the big 3, get yourself a 2nd battery and stay away from capacitors and get yourself a voltage meter. You want to stay as close to 14.4v as possible. You don't want to go below 12v. Use 0 gauge wire for the install and big 3. Welding cable also works well (2/0)

    What cfox10 said basically.I ran the brz2100 for about 2 months.Definately run 0 ga wire and big 3 with an extra battery.Amp can be a power hog..Good luck!
