    Is the Kicker KX1200.1 more reliable then BX1500D?

    I have just received my Hifonics BX1500D and after reading the posts on here about the Hifonics amps shutting down, I am honestly contemplating sending this amp back to Sounddomain and trading it out for a Kicker KX1200.1. Both amps seem to have the same power...I'm just worried about powering my L5 10's at 1 ohm and having the BX1500D shutting down?

    Any input on the KX?

    Thanks
    Kev

    the kx puts out alot of power but personally i think its overpriced. The brutus is a very good amp imo, make sure you got the right fuses for 1ohm operation (they should be dual 80amps i believe)

    I don't feel the kickers are overpriced. They are awesome amps, and if i had the money i would get mine back . I havn't heard of too many instances of it shutting down, but if it does doesn't sounddomain have a warranty on it? just be careful and set everything correctly.

    if an amp shuts down, either the Brtus or Kicker ( I speak highly of the Kicker by the way ) I would look at wiring, voltage or heat to be an issue....
