    Re: lanzar optidrive

    Yes, I have a "Lanzar OptiDrive 50C". I am an old school bass head now converted to a speed metal freek!!! I have owned and operated this amp for 9 years with only changing the subs 3 times. I used to go to amature stereo competitions in Lawton Oklahoma when I lived in Whitchita Falls Tx. and used to see these amps all the time. It was very easy to cheat with these amps because they have such a low Ohm stability. These amps are becomming very hard to find so if you can get one, take it. My opinion to the rest of the stuff this guy is selling is kinda low. You dont need bass shakers!!! Come on!!! If memory serves me correct, they shake your seat. LOL. Who wants top fake the funk by having their seat shake until the bolts fall out. LOL. Just build your system the right way, and keep the bass to your self! For future reference, Lanzar, and other old school companies sold out to a company called "Directed Electronics" who sells low end products for a cheap price. Example, Orion used to be one of the very best money could buy... if you could afford it! Now they are very low end because of the buy out. JL Audio remains their own with some of the very best money can buy still. I run JL in my other car.

    Good luck!

    Theyre decent for the money.

    The Optic 50C was indeed an amazing amp.......and if you can find one of the originals that was built by "Lanzar/ZED" then you really have a nice amp on your hands....
    As far as the above quoted statement....well Lanzar was bought out by the parent company of Pyramid not DEI, and Orion (who is owned by DEI) still makes some pretty good equipment. I can't say how good they are compared to before the buy out but still good none the less....
    I believe the poster was also referring to the Opti-Drive subwoofers and not the amps though......I may be wrong...

    You are right my friend... I should do some more research!!!

    It was actually PPI that was the other big dog that sold out to DEI. Back in my day, they were the S#@T...

    Have a bass day!

    The top of the string said "OPTIDRIVE" so I assumed this was about amps!
