    Icon32 Question: hifonics and kicker??

    I'm getting 2 12 kicker comp vr's (the old version). I'm thinking about geting a hifonics amp for them, do you think a brutus 1000d would be too big? What should I use? I looked at a couple of zeus models also. Any help would be awesome, thanks.

    Semper fi,
    -Brent

    Depends on how you will be running the subs. What would be the final load?

    yep, DVC, get the DVC 4 ohm model
    just parallel both the coils and the woofers down to 1 ohm and you're set

    But have you ever heard or used a Hifonics? Memphis is a good amp, but is more expensive than the Hifonics.

    A lot of people swear by the HiFonics Brutus series. They are excellent amps for the $$$. If budget is not a concern, of course there are better amplifiers. If you are going to do the "budget" thing though, at least do it right.

    Re: Question: hifonics and kicker??

    I just found out the comp VR's are 2ohm dual, how would I wire that? The speakers are wired in a series in the box.. Should I change that?

    only options you have are 0.5 ohm or 2 ohm load(<----). Series the VC and parallel the subs. Might have to reconsider the Hifonics or get a 1500D (1000W into 2 ohms).

    Re: Question: hifonics and kicker??

    yup, unless u run one sub wired in 1 ohm to one Hifonics amp like the BX500D, but that might be a little more expensive than the BX1500D.
