  3. Critique My Build For My 2008 Honda Civic EX

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Hey guys. After months of research I've come up with this list of stuff. What do you think? Am I missing anything? Couple questions: 1. I plan on bridging the 4ch amp's rear channel to my sub. Is this an okay practice over a dedicated mono amp? This should give me 320w RMS @ 4Ohms to the sub...

  7. what to get to power 2 American Bass xfl1244

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    What amp should I get to power 2 XFL1244 in a ported box? Planning to run at 1 Ohm. Must be class D monoblock. I really want to run about 3000w clean power to them but I don't think I'll be able to do that with my budget ($400ish). I was thinking something like a Hifonics Brutus BRX2400.1D...
  8. Best set of 1200w amps; Hifonics BRZ vs BRX

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Alright, so here's the deal. I currently have a setup consisting of an old Audiobahn 1200w amp and 3 Audiobahn Alum10's. I may have the opportunity to pick up another 3 identical subs on the cheap. Worth it? It seems to me that more drivers= more sound with less power. Maybe I'm wrong. I know...

  10. Hifonics Zeus vs Gladiator vs Brutus Elite 4 channel amps

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Any notable differences between them? I'm talking the 4 channel amps specifically. It seems that Bruts Elite costs the most, Gladiator 2nd most, and Zues is cheapest, but Zues seems to put out a little more power than the the others while being cheapest. Sonicelectronix says the Zeus is CEA...

  13. Which Alpine Type R to pick?!

    General Car Audio Discussion
    I have a Hifonics BRZ1200.D and i plan to get a type r for it! so my question is which year do i get? I originally thought to get the new 2012 model and run it @ 1200rms, but that gives me no room to upgrade in the future. Maybe last years model (600rms) @ 900rms and 2 ohm, that way if i needed...

    I just bought a .9cu sealed box for my Kenwood w3012 as i had it in a 2.3cu ft box my friend previously had and it was a little boomy for me. Since i was looking for more sound quality, i bought a smaller box, and it actually sounds a great deal better. Covers the higher freqs better and much...
