PG 1200.1 vs DEI 1100d

Hi guys I need another powerful 1-ohm amp to power a single ED 12A. It used to run off a HiFonics bx1000d but it fried after about 3 months of barely-moderate use. HiFoncs offered to repair it for a price but I have a feeling it will just burn out again. I did a search on the DEI but not much came up on the quality.

I pretty much want a reliable amp that won't burn out. Prices seem to be about the same on ebay. Which would you choose?

The PG is stable @1ohm according to the amp sticky.

I also called their company and spoke with a tech guy, he confirmed this but added I should consider aiming a small fan at the heatsinks because it will get warm.

 
Ok, thanks for your help. I keep learning more & more about car audio from this forum.

This basically says for 1 DVC sub I can either wire it in series (for 4-ohm), or parallel (for 1-ohm). I was using parallel before, which was probably too stressful for that cheap HiFonics amp. I guess I should go 4-ohm for reliablity's sake.

Again thanks.

 
well since you can wire it to 4 ohms, and the PG Tantrums are solid amps and are at very decent prices why not go that direction,

 

its not so much that the HiFonics is cheap, just that the PG is very nice for the money

I would put the full range to ch.3&4, and low pass on ch.5&6. The 6.1200 line out should be full range unless it has a dedicated x-over. In that...

It should be fine as long as you're not looking to upgrade in the future.

Its not a huge upgrade and I'd argue you likely couldn't tell the difference.
