I bought this to power 2 of my kicker 15's and you wont be disapointed. Fully pushed the kickers without flaw. Never overheated amp once and amp never went into protection mode. I've been using it for 2 years now. Great amp for the price and quality.

I have been using this amp for almost a year now and it still works great and never even get hot running two 2300 watt twelves at 1ohm. Remote bass adjust is also a great plus for when you have the kids in the car and do not want the full power of this amp.

Nice amp; worked out of the box, sound is nice.
the only complaint I have is; all the silver colored material is: PLASTIC.
Not a big deal, just adds to a 'cheapish' made in china feel to it.

Powers a 12" Kicker comp VR 4-Ohm dual voice coil sub.

This HFi1000.1D is the previous BXI1206D but has upgrades they just rated this model more conservative because they now CEA rate higher end Hifonics...

I'm using mine on 2 12" HE2 RF's, small sealed enclosure, 4 awg RF wiring on stock electric. It'll make the lights dim when cranked but after hours of abuse it's still wanting more, don't get hot ever..running @ 1ohm and it sounds great

and yes plenty LOUD enough to get tickets! and will bounce change 1/4" off the center console

This bad boy powers 2 Kicker CVR 10's at 2 ohms like a beast. The subs love this amp, there loud as hell and sound very clean too. I'm not sure how good it would sound at 1 ohm and I'm getting plenty of power so I never plan on testing it but I definitely recommended this to anyone wanting to easily power there subs at 2 ohms like a champ.

I have this amp wired to a 15" Kicker CVX at a 1ohm load and I really have to say that it does give it all the power it needs to shake the earth. 1000W of true power, although I could push my sub a little bit more I don't want to because it already makes my car want to fall apart as it is.

This amp is powering a pair of Kicker CVR10's and its BRUTAL! Literally my entire trunk and headliner rattles. I have it running at 2 ohms right now and I couldn't be happier. It's pushing them like a champ. I would recommend this to anyone looking to beat the the junk out of there subs while still producing crisp clear bass.

This amp is a powerhouse for its price and power rating. I have it wired at 1 ohm on 2 alpine type r 12's. This sub and amp combo really kicks. One notable feature is the remote bass control. This comes in handy. When I show them off I crank it but for daily driving I tune it down for some really good bass quality.

This is a great amp. It might be a little bit off on the ratings because I've heard alot about this amp. Its really small. Like really small to be 1000wrms. Its kinda cool. It has that Hifonics sound quality and style. I highly recommend this amp to any person. I rate it all 5 stars.

I bought this amp and installed it for a friend. This amp was wired at 1ohm and it appears to make 1kw.

Cosmetically its probably one of the least attractive that I've installed in a while. It just screams cheap - but It makes the power and thats all that matters. The mounting flanges are plastic, the trim is plastic as well.

The terminals are very nice and holds 4awg +/- wires with ease. The speaker wires will accept up to 10awg from what it looks (I used 12awg).

The opposite end of the power wires is the input signal end and adjustment knobs). The RCA connectors are decent quality as well. I really dislike the gain/crossover/etc knobs as they are very cheap in my opinion.

Although, this amp's intention is to power subwoofers, I would have like to see a crossover bypass switch (it was in an active install). Another oddity is that you HAVE to feed this amplifier a stereo signal, even though this amp is classified as a "mono".

Overall, the amp simply makes the power...if you can handle the uglyness (I did a custom install with the amp hidden with fans blowing across the heatsinks).

This amp does nothing for my Dual 4 ohm Fosgate P3s. It's supposed to supply 1K Watts @ 1 ohm which paired up with two dual 4 ohm 12's should be perfect but it does nothing for it. I swear my Fosgate R-500 amp hit harder. Do yourself a favor and save up for a better amp. Cosmetically, yeah the emblem lights up but I don't care how it looks I need power. What a waste..I thought hifonics were supposed to be pretty good..
