    Orion 2500d or Viper 2500.1

    Well, i've heard they are comparable...and i know people stand by their rorion equipment. I also just read that a long time orion user would choose the 2500.1 over the 2500d anyday. So, gimme some feedback...legit! Please experienced people, or those who site an experienced source. Thank you, peace

    If you surf through DEI's website, they dont even offer Viper Audio products anymore- But Viper also had a 1200.1 and a 600.1 (I believe, 1200.1 for sure)- same mono amp lineup as OrRION- like I said, I wouldn't be surprised if these amps were nothing short of identical and theres some hillbilly crossbreeding goin on over at Directed to get more buyers......

    Matter of fact I asume Directed squashed the Viper line for a new Xtream line..

    no doubt they're good amps, DEI is a solid company to deal with as well- but i'f you want to complement your 1200.1 to a matching 4ch, ebay and dealers with overhead may be your answer- I'm sure they haven't disappeared completly- heck I just helped install a set of Viper components less than two weeks ago that came from DEI distributors ......

    Noticed tho that Directed has a Tripath powered 1200.1 as well in its lineup- hell buying Orion must have been the best thing that ever happened to them

    sure man, hit me up on AIM. Also guys, they would have to be slightly different...the Orion does max power @1ohm while the viper does max power @2ohms. peace

    I know that guy. I saw his stuff on ebay. How does his stuff look like. I wanted an amp for my speakers and saw his 400.2 amp. Does the amps look new or are they all scratched and stuff.

    Amplifier design is not my forte.......but I think they could still use the same boards just with slightly different components on the output stage. Ofcourse, I could also be an idiot............
