    Actually what I meant was other specs such as:

    THD, S/N ratio, frequency response...............etc.

    Re: Opinions Needed: Hifonics XX Colussus

    somehow the numbers don't look right to me on that amp
    4 ohms to 2 ohms should dubble the power I think you got more power then you know
    YOU GO BOY!

    Re: Opinions Needed: Hifonics XX Colussus

    i love mine....it will run daily @1ohm if you have the charging system to back it up

    it can run @ .25,.33.5ohm from a roll up, once in a while i can get it to burp @.5
    one knock is its ****ing huge...and they put the gain on the side of the amp but all other settings are on the front of the amp

    other day we burped it about 30times...w/ very little ventilation for it and it was just starting to get warm

    Re: Opinions Needed: Hifonics XX Colussus

    Are the Colossus amps overrated like the Brutus line? I wonder if that's their true power ratings...

    Whatever you say man. So the higher you go up in power the less distortion or signal to noise matters?? Doesn't make much sense to me.
