    What you guys think, yes or no?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=18796

    how are the x-overs?
    is factory refurb reliable?
    is seller reliable?
    this is going to be used for comps, good for this or no?

    Sounds - you are completely misinformed on this. Lanzar Vibe and Viberant are definitely in the "decent budget" category, but the OPTIDRIVES are right in the middle of the very nice equipment. They are significantly underrated, very "clean", and not a stranger to the competitive world. JL, Kicker, PPI, DEI -- That's where optidrive is. The prices they're going for on ebay is a complete injustice to the quality of product they are. There is a nice review of an opti 100.4 over at carsound. They're rated for 50x4, and 180x2 bridged. They tested to do 70x4 and 253x2.

    Dr. - The x/o's are second to none. 24db/oct butterworths. They even have parametric equalizers. I think refurb's are more reliable than buying used. Audioblowouts is a good seller. I bought my components from him. And yes, there's not a component set out there that wouldn't reach its optimal performance off this amp.

    The seller has a 7 day DOA warrenty if anything is wrong with the amp when you get it.

    I would email them and see if it comes with anything that says that it was Factory Refurb.

    Hello GSteg it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks, why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with another member in any one of our forums?

    you would be right ......if you meant the exact opposite of what you said. the opti line is awesome , and for the price there going for on ebay they just cant be beat . like the opti 1000.1d 1000wrms for about 200 bucks ,and you can strap them together, thats 2000wrms for about 400 bucks ...

    drkodin,the 500.2 should be a great amps but might be a little power hungry ,so i would also look into the opti 1000.1d because its more efficient and you'll get a few more watts out of it too .and as for audioblowouts they are great people , i got my amp like 4 days after they receved my payment .

    How stable are the opti amps at lower ohms? Like..say what would the 500.1 put out at 3.2 ohms and .8 ohms?

    There is no 500.1

    I know 1st hand that the a/b optis will run at 2 ohms mono with no problem, however power gained over 4 ohms shouldn't be much, and I've also read that the 1000.1D will run at 1/2 ohm with no problems as well.

    everything looks good except for the warranty.. MOST refurbish items only has 90 days warranty.. that's why it's alot cheaper than new.. about the performance, you won't notice the difference between brand new and refurbish...

    I bought my opti 1000.1D USED off ebay. I thought it had a noise problem so I called Lanzar about it. They serviced it with no questions asked. They seem to back up thier products very well.
