    most efficient 1 ohm amp you know of?

    what's the most efficient ~1100 watt one ohm amp that you all know of?

    also - can someone tell me a thing or two about my Diamond Audio D1000.1's efficiency?

    thanks

    This is the most efficient amp I'm aware of.

    AMP Energy Drink



    Head Unit: Pioneer avh-4300dvd,
    Front Stage: Ascendant Audio 6.75", Massive Audio 28mm tweeters
    Rear Fill: Massive Audio CK6-3 6x9 Woofers
    Amps: PPI Phantom P900.4, Sundown Audio SAZ-2500D
    Sub: RE Audio XXX 12" 2.25^3 Tuned to 32

    They sell Kicker at Wal-Mart now. That's saying a lot..

    if you wanted to change up your amp why not go with an saz1000 you won't get much higher in efficiency than that anyways

    I'd say Mmats. Expensive but worth it I've heard. And that Diamond Audio 1000.1 is a good amp also.

    Re: most efficient 1 ohm amp you know of?

    Efficiency has always seemed to be a pretty gray area to me.
    I think most companies that bother actually measuring efficiency are going to specify the best number the amp could achieve.
    That's probably not full power, minimum impedance.

    It always seemed to be a silly thing to worry about to me.

    If you buy a quality amp of a particular class - in most cases it's going to give you reasonable efficiency.
    And any other comparable amp - while i would expect efficiency would vary - shouldn't differ by much. To be concerned with a few amps one way or the other isn't going to make or break the system.

    cadence a7hc is insanely efficient or mmats

    both would be much better in efficiency vs the diamond.

    or running a amp at 4 ohm is much more efficient than any 1 ohm amp 1200x1
