In my previous setup, I used the following:

Hifonics Zeus, ZXi 8408
Hifonics Brutus, BXi 2008

But I already sold these amps and will have another setup in my other vehicle. This time it will be a one-amp setup using the Helix G-Five.

Still running PG Octane R 5.0.4 and 2.0.1. These are what I could afford back then which was back in the early 2000s when I first had it installed. I want to switch it out to newer stuff but too lazy to do it myself and can't afford to pay someone else to do it as I currently just upgraded my wife's stereo system in her vehicle.

2- Alpine MRD-F752's. I purchased these back in 98-99, used one in my 92 GMC Jimmy for a while. It ran my whole system, three way fronts, two subs. Then I purchased the other because I loved the first one so much. It's been new in the box since. This year I'm going to put it to good use.

Very much so, I bought it while it was on sale at car toys website for $130. Wish I would have bought 2 more. No noise, never runs out of power for my use on tweeter duty, very clean sound, no distortion heard.

I love that PG. I was between that amp and the one I have now (see above). I got a good deal on the Mmats so I went that route.

Always been a MMATS fan but never owned one.... Looks like a killer amp which for some reason I was not aware of until recently.

You are literally the first person I have seen post that they are using the Helix 1000.2. Tell me how you like it and opinions (pro and con) of the amp. I know they get a lot of grief for being um..."cosmetically challenged" I guess.

Absolutely State Of The Art!

The amp has served me well, over performed its rated power specifications however it is physically larger than I prefer. I actually just took the amplifier out to replace it with a Digital Designs DMF2800 (will be running a two ohm setup). Sonically though I would say it is average, speaker control not as great as others I have tried. But for the price point it is a bargain!

I am using a JL Audio HD1200/1 and a 13w7ae, 3.5 cubes Ported to 34hz for my lows. I am using the Alpine PDX-F4 to power two sets of Diamond Audio Hex components, one in front and one in back. Great sounding setup, but I am going to change out the front component set for AudioFrog GB or JBL GTI. I just bought an IDMax15D4V2 that I will be running sealed, interchangeably with the 13w7ae.
