I agree the blue ones are way more appealing than the black and golds. Not to worry those nice 50c and EQ went to good hands.

I'm a huge fan of the old school ('92-97) LANZAR Opti series amps/subs. So I say this with love for this era LANZAR.

The records need to be set straight and I'm going to do my best to prove what I've been saying in past threads. I am in the middle of going through 250+ issues of Car audio mags to find any/all reviews I can of the LANZAR Opti amps. So far what I have found is the Opti2150, Opti500TMS, Opti50c. I know there's a review on the Opti200/Opti2200 (which are not the same amps believe it or not). I want to set the record straight as to their output and what people say about them being WAY under rated.

This line/era of LANZAR is/was what got me into Car audio. My first sub setup was two 12" LANZAR Pro's and a LANZAR LRX200 amp. So I saw this with love for this era Opti.

As soon as I get all the reviews rounded up I will post my findings.
They were as good as any other amp on the market at the time, i ran many lanzar amps, installed many of them too. I for one dont need proof, they were awesome amps in their day.

You're only clue, it has six channels, but it's not a 6200.

Were the silver ones of good quality? I had 2 blue amps and knew the black ones were only cosmetic changes. But I thought after that, they got sold and went downhill...

I believe that after the black opti drive amplifiers (Gary Kovner design) they changed the interior and outside design (silver), I know, they were designed by zed audio ( Opti drive 100.2, 200.2,500.2, 100.4 & 1000.1D), these that say designed and manufactured in USA (Last Lanzar amplifiers USA Manufactured). The current silver only say designed and engineered in the United States (no manufactured), these are made in Chinese.
I have the note that zed audio says, these amplifier can not work less than 4 ohms in mono, this note came in the box with the manual.

Well sh*t the bed! NOS does NOT mean fresh new surround. Hardly fired it up just a bit and shortly after getting started dialing in the gain it starts rattling like crazy. Thinking surely it's the $17 too-small prefab box making the noise, I see a chunk of the surround flopping around behind the grill. Pull the grill and find this. SUCK.

Anyone know anything about replacing surrounds? I'm thinking pick up a Cerwin Vega surround repair kit and figure it out.



Put back in my reliable old ZR12 and shelved this new 10 for the time being until I can get a repair kit. I'm not giving up on it though.

rreed; I believe that the crewing vega surround repair kit that you said is the best option; or you could put a transparent glue like UHU.

good luck.
