    Which amp is better?

    Hey i have a kicker solo x 18'' and i was wondering out of these two amps would be best to power it. Orion D5000 or the Hifonics Bxi2608d?

    I know the orion is a good brand and same for hifonics so all advice is appreciated

    Re: Which amp is better?

    Well from experience, I have had a bxi2006d that I used for a good 2 years daily and it took a beating and I sold it for the same price I bought it for. Kept some electrical properly feeding it @ .5 ohms daily and it never broke a sweat. I personally like the Brutus line, but that's me. The older stuff was price/wattage worthy imo.

    You picked the wrong sub if you worried about powering it. It's really with anything you do with your car whether it be to make it faster or louder you need supporting mods. You gotta pay to play..

    That Brutus will be lucky to make 2300 watts. Orion all day if you have the electrical for it. If not get a different sub
