    I've had both an 800.2 and a 700s and they were great amps, built like tanks too. I've heard nothing but bad things about their new line up. I don't trust them just looking at them, the 800wrms amp says "2400watts" right on the amp. I don't trust any company that resorts to using legacy's marketing tactics



    Words of wisdom:
    "you don't need ohms to make a sub loud. trust me."

    My System:
    HU: *stolen
    Speakers: CDT CL-61a
    Speaker amp: HiFonics Hawk
    Sub: Magnum D2 15
    Sub amp: HiFonics BX1500D
    Box: 4.3cu.ft. tuned to 30hz

    umm their new 2004 line up is completly rebuilt, their amp rattings are CEA offical, and all the tests and things I have read, not to include a friend who is a RF field tester, have all been excellent with the new 2004 line up

    I have owned many of the older old school amps over time, I have 2 right now that are chilling that I need to find a home

    The old school stuff between 86'-92" was fantastic then they seem to have just went to hell from then until now (just my opinion only). I've recently undergone a change of heart with the introduction of the new 04' Power lineup. I'm going to try it out then give my views until then the jury is still out.....

    The i and ix series were insane. You could suffiently power like 4 subs w/ a amp rated at 12.5x2. Besides DARKHART those other amps listed wouldnt exactly be called old school IMO.

    I diffently wouldn't consider those 800's, 700's and stuff like that old school. Old School to me is the stuff I used back in the late 80's, the Punch 30's, 45's, and 75's, the Power 300's, 650's and 1000's(which unknown to most was a 4channel amp)...the Black,Red and White case before there was a chrome model.
    When the first Punch 200 hit the market yes it was a pretty bad boy as well...
