    picking new amp.. stay with hifonics or better choice out there?

    I ran a BXI2008D amp for 4 years and it did well on two 15 inch cerwinvega strokers wired at .5 but it lived its life.. and im rebuilding need advice on the newer hifonics series. I have been looking at the
    ZRX3200.1D I know its over rated but at 250$ will it do a clean 2000rms at 1 ohms with a good power system? I want one amp on each sub that will give me a good 2000rms at 1ohms for one each sub.

    IDEAS???

    Crescnedo Sound Qubed Rockford Fosgate OLDER Hifonics... There is alot better options out now I think I would even take audiopoop over new hifonics lower lines... Just stay on here and do some research and choose for youself best option then you are happy with what you purchase



    Sub Amp: Rockford Fosgate T30001bd

    Mids amp: Rockford T800-4BD

    Sub: RE MT 18" in a ssa xcon 18" optimal ported box works incredible for the MT

    Wiring: Knu konceptz 1/0 Sky High 1/0 and a crap ton of deadener all in a 1995 Ford Aspire hatchback!!!!!

    one more thing! the BXI2008D was a beast at .5 but that was the only way I got close to 2000rms outa it.. I started with 2 of the amps on each sub but at 1ohms on each amp running a sub a peace I had 2 times the power draw with less output compared to one amp on 2 subs. im worried the newer hifonics amps cant go under 1 ohms

    good place to start would be a sound qubed 3500.1 does 4300 rms @1ohm and will give around 4k at normal operating volatage

    Soundqubed is the logical result of this discussion. Unless you shop around and get a pair of used saz2500s or nendo 2ks or older mb quart discus 2ks. But new go soundqubed

    All day on proper electrical. Buddy of mine runs his 2200 @ .5 daily and it doesn't even get warm. I wouldn't be afraid to run the 3500 at .5 at all.

    fyi, you shouldn't base your decisions on what you want to hear, take every advice with a grain of rice and do your research, look for clamp tests and reviews on everything you buy.

    As i said in the other thread. The Db Drive pd2000.1d will probly out do any of the amps mentioned above. Its rated 2000rms @ 1ohm and actually puts outs around 2500 @ 1ohm. And can be ran at .5 can do 3k+ rms there and can be burped @ .25ohm.



    MY 95 BLAZER~(HIGHEST SCORE 147+DB 30 SEC MUSIC AVG-BB2400 & 1 HDC3-18 W/STOCK ELEC)
    2 OBSIDIAN V2 18'S ~ 10 CUBES @ 38HZ ~ SOUNDSTREAM TA1.3000D @ .5
    DC 220A ALT ~ 2 AGMS + 1 STOCK BATT ~ 4 RUNS OGA(2 POS & 2 NEG)

    WIFEYS 03 FOCUS SE TRUNK SYSTEM ~ 143+DB 30 SEC MUSIC AVG
    1 KICKER L7 15 ~ 5.6 CUBE @ 38HZ ~ KICKER ZX1000.1 @ 2 OHM
    STOCK ELECTRICAL ~ 1 BATT(YELLOW TOP OPTI) ~ ONLY 6GA WIRE
