PEOPLE READ VERY IMPORTANT

When i first saw this amp and read through the reviews i knew this would be a very smart choice. i just had mine installed last week and man, this thing slaps so hard its insane. i can here this thing all the way down my street behind my buddy's fence(500ft). When my wife wants a massage i dont even have to get up anymore, i just have my boy go downstairs and turn on the car. sometimes i play some of that young jeezy slap for the premium massage. when i roll into work i roll with style. inside my employees know its me comin because half the store shakes therefor its a mess when i come in. Trust me and ALL the other reviews, this amp is the best if you dont wanna pay too much and if you want serious power. honestly i dont even know how my heart hasnt stopped yet this thing is so loud. ive gotten like 20 loud music ticketts!!!!!

ok buy

Had this amp for a few months. Made my Alpines kick so hard, people could here my car for blocks. Amp started cutting out after a few months when I played something with too much bass. Called Sonic Electronix. They handled my problem greatly and sent me a new one.

If you're going to buy this amp, make sure you know what you're doing. This amp is the same internals as the hifonics 2400W amp just with a smaller current handling system. If you don't know how to tune it right you're going to be blowing subwoofers left right and center. The speaker output has been reading up to 62V (at 1 ohm that is equivelant to 3844W). With the fuses that are in it and over-current protection I was still able to blow my hifonics brutus 1200W Peak subwoofer. Aside from that amazing amp, beautiful power coming from it.

I have this amp paired with a Rockford 12" t1 running off an optima and an extra shuriken battery and this thing slams, so far I have only turned the gain to about 1 or 2 o clock out of about 5 an its nasty for a single sub. I need to invest in dynamat. So far have had no problems besides adjusting phase but ill keep posted.

Bought this amp to power a single 10 inch kicker, it pushes it really well and makes it sound good. Only down side to the amp is that when the weather gets hot it overheats really easily. Other than that it is a good amp for a everyday system.

At first i was a little apprehensive about this amp because i have never owned anything from Hi Fonics but after i read the reviews i was sold! I had it running two rockford fosgate hx2 10's in a slot ported enclosure wired at 1ohm and this thing pushed the subs HARD!!! This amp barely even gets warm! unfortunately one of the subs blew a coil so now i have it running just one in a different slot ported enclosure at 2 ohm and i am tempted to say it may be even louder; it flexes the roof of my little mazda truckl! Terrific amp for the price i recommend it to anyone!

I hooked this amp up to a 10 inch alpine type R and it sounded real nice but when I turned it up for 1 song it fried the sub. The sub is only rated for 600 watts RMS so I guess I'm dumb. Not the amps fault, I don't think. The amp it replaced was a 500 watt alpine mdx. I think the hifonics sounds much better than the alpine amp. Now I have to buy a new sub though.

I bought this amp to power the Hifonics OLYMPUS SUBWOOFER that I recently purchased from Sonicelectronix.com. This amp is not only powerful but beautiful. The blue LED lighting set's off the brushed aluminum look of the amp. I put my Olympus 12 in a 2.0 cf 32 htz box and wired it to this amp at 1olm and it pounds. I did a BIG 4 upgrade with all OFC 0AWG wire back to my distribution blocks then OFC 4awg to the amp the wiring upgrade got me from 12.6 volts to 15.7 volts to my amps so I'm getting my 1200 watts rms to my sub and it pounds. I would absolutely recommend Hifonics sub's and amps and Sonicelectronix.com Thanks for everything Sonicelectronix.com

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a pretty nice sound system for a little bit cheaper. This amp is the perfect middle ground. It's not so nice as to where it'd break the bank but it's not so cheap that it can't deliver its power ratings. I've had this amp for a little over a year and I'm happy with it. I push two Type R's with it just fine.

I have this amp hooked up to 2 RE Audio SEX wired to 1 ohm. This amp sounds great, I have not felt it get hot yet but it does hog a lot of power sometimes I feel like more than it should. I would recommend this amp to anyone who is on a budget. I can only think of one other amp in this price range that is better. I have had this amp for about 6 months and it still runs strong. The heat sink fins are very sharp so be careful!

Okay so I had this amp for 3 months before I sold it and it was an okay amp for the money. I had this amp pushing a 15 " Alpine Type R wired down to 1 ohm and it played pretty loud but I had to turn the gain almost all the way up to get it at a decent level. Sound quality was good but not great. its pretty power hungry so you better have something better than a stock electrical system or you'll be seeing a lot of headlight dimming and won't get the best results like I didn't. As for looks this amp is very stylish I like the blue Hifonics sign lol overal this is an okay amp if you don't have the cash for a more expensive amp. By the way I upgraded to a Rockford Fosgate T1000BdCp and its awsome. I wrote a review on that one too ;)

I recently purchased this amp as a budget project for my son's first vehicle...I was not expecting too much for only $240.00.... after critically listeneing to his sytem, I found this amp is quite robust and does seem to have high damping at high volumes. For so much bang their is really very little draw on his stock charging system. Really plays out well through the low tones. HIghly recommend to anyone. GREAT AMP FOR THE PRICE AT SONIC!

I am a professional installer and I hooked this up correctly but it just never worked well. so I sent it back and got a new one. No worries right? WRONG this time its lasted 4 months and it pooped out too. Time to send back to sonic's great customer service (I really mean it, its top notch). spend a lil more money and get something worth while like a Rockford Fosgate amp that would be my best advice to you friends.

This amp right here, Wow... All i have to say... I have had this baby power 2 alpine 10" 2012 alpines in a 2 cube ported enclosure at 1 ohm, and they pounded the living hell out of my poor little subby...

I currently have the amp hooked up to a rockford t2d2 woofer at 1 ohm.. And i was a little skeptical at first thinking, why am i hooking up a cheaper amp to a 900 dollar sub...

Man was i wrong. This amp pushed the living hell out of the 900 dollar woofer... Throwing the maximum excursion of 4 inches off the sub with zero stress, at barely HALF THE POWER.

Please.. please buy this amp.. It is the only amp in the price range that can deliver this much bass for the affordable price.

Let me start off by saying I would give this amp 3.5 out of 5 if I could. This is because the amp was really inconsistant. By that I mean that some days it was an absolute workhorse that pushed my subs hard, and some days it would sound not as loud or even sporatically cut out. I got my battery checked out, checked the ground and wiring, but could never figure out why it would cut out. Overall, I would say this was a good amp and worth the money, but don't be sceptical of people saying it would cut out, like I was before I bought it. Other than my frustrations with the inconsistency, the amp was well designed and has several nice features that really simplify installation.

This amp is a really good bang for your buck, plus its CEA compliant so you can have peace of mind. I have owned this amp for about 1 year and it has never given me any problems nor has it never gotten hot or went into protect mode.
This amp currently powers my 1 12" Kicker L7 sub. The sub is Dual 4 ohms and i have it wired to a 2 ohm load and this amp powers it without any problems.
For such a powerful amp, it is pretty small (Digital technology For The Win) so you can install it in a lot of tight locations.

I rated it 4.5 stars for making a day out of trouble shooting im changing it to 5* when i bought the amp i thought it was gonna put out 900watts rms to my scar vvx 12 d4... after receving the amp i noticed it wasnt possible to hook it up to 2ohm load so i went for the 1ohm load and risked my scar. My lisence plate moves in waves and my bass nob fell off my lap with 1 sub and all windows down 5* clean power looks great and its 2006 compliant cant go wrong!!! Banging on a budget or with a wallet i would still recomend 5* and like always Sonic Electronics gave me a great product! SonicElectronicx for life!

i first bought the boss onyx 1800 i had running 3 audiopipe tsvr's at 2 ohm load it worked well after they popped. Then i bought a scar vvx 12 d4 so i could run at 2ohm's at 900rms a little over rated rms by 300 watts on the boss the skar blew up the boss amp pulled out the sub leads were still silver!. I was a little worried that it would be to much due to running the boss and going to a 2006 complient amp the hifonics. CLEAN POWER LOOKS GREAT worth it at 159 made a offer got it for 147. only diss is that i had to jump a wire from the power to the remote for it 2 turn on couldnt figure it out for the life of me compleatly re ran my wires still no power tried the old jump trick turned on. Blue lights in my opinion are a nice touch that doesent scream i payed for lights not watts. just enough of a touch ima give a 4.5 stars only because i had a 6hr day trouble shooting! all in all would not only recomend to anyone its real power tested and proven again and again hifonics makes quality amps! buy it features cant be found under 300 at that power level!!!!!!

I really have nothing bad to say about this amp. Hifonics is a name of the past, yet based on reviews I decided to give the amp a try for the price. This amp pushes some raw power. I have it hooked up to a 10" Alpine Type R 10D4 pushing 900 watts @ 2ohm and she puts out a beautiful crisp clean sound. Great combination!

I was looking forward to upgrading my current Visonik V318XT amp to this amp hoping it would make my 2 12 inch cvr's louder. I was disappointed because to make it sound decent I had to turn the gain almost all the way up and put the bass eq on the amp about half way up. I also had to have the bass on the head unit all the way up. The higher bass notes were indeed much louder but this amp cant touch the lower bass notes. While I was trying to get it to sound decent I noticed my subs were starting to smell so I knew the amp was clipping. I immediatly unhooked the amp and reconnected my old amp. My old Visonik amp sounds so much better and hits the lows with ease even though it is much less powerful than this amp. Also with my visonik the gain and bass boost is only half way on the amp and the bass on the head unit can be on 0 and still sound really good unlike this hifonics. One good thing about the amp is that it looks really nice and the blue illuminated hifonics logo looks really cool!

Worked well for about a year. Had it wired to 1ohm on some CVR 12's. Decent low grade amp. I would say one of the better of the cheap amps. Although if you wire it down to 1ohm i wouldnt expect it to last more than a year if it's being played every day.

I only got it cause i was strapped for cash at the time. And basically would only recommend as such. An amp to use for a year while you save for a better one. If you want more use than that id say dont wire to 1ohm.

I purchased this amp for my brother. I have heard it and will have to say for the money you spend, this is a great amp! He has it pushing a T1D212 Rockford Sub, and it pushes it beyond its limit. We have never clipped the amp or (protect mode) it's great, and believe me he runs it hard@ 1ohm. I personally have a Rockford Fosgate T1000.1 amp. It may produce more power but you will pay more for it! All in all hifonics has not dissapointed GREAT amp for the price! I am rating this amp as if I own it, because my brother and I are joined at the hip so to say when it comes to being AUDIO freaks lol. Hope this review helps out. PLAY it loud fellow audio enthusiasts!!

I have my stock car battery and it still sounds great but I can't wait to give this amp the full power it deserves.

Driving Morel 10" sub in 1.0 cu. ft. sealed cabinet. I am a SQ guy and driving this with the Brutus. It never heats up and gives me plenty of power to my 2 ohm Morel. I do not think I will be able to buy a better amp for twice the money. A lot of my friends use this with 2-4 subs to thump. I do not need that!!!! If you are in the market for a good mono amp this should be in the running.

This is a great amp. Good bang for the buck. It is totally worth the cost and will hold it's on. I have two Alpine 1243d subwoofers and the total RMS for both of them are 1200 watts rms. The amp can most definitely supply the power when it's needed. It also has a bass knob which is very convenient to turn up and down when needed. The amp also looks cools and great style and the Hifonics letters glow when the amp is on. If you are tryin to supply the power needed for the speakers then this amp is a must to have. It is also good to know the amp is CEA compliant so you know you are getting what you are paying for..

This amp has POWER. I got this hooked up to two(2) 10" Alpine Type-Rs in a Memphis ported box and WOW, once you set your levels and everything right this thing has lots of potential. Be prepared to fix rattles! I had to fix multiple rattles caused by this amp LOL this involved putting a rubber padding behind my license plate, and pieces of foam in various places. It also has a nice blue glow, which looks good at night, not tacky.

I have this amp. its the best. i was unsure about Hifonics, but this amp made me think different. I'm going to upgrade to a bigger Hifonics amp. but this did the job great. Looks cool with the led Hifonics brand.
It also says watts rated. No lie about that. A lot of power for 1 little amp.
GOOD FOR THE PRICE!!!
SONIC IS THE BEST.

I'm running a Fi SSD 15" at 2 ohms off this amp. I don't have everything cranked up to the max and it still manages to rattle my mirror off. It's a great amp. Not one overheat/shut off. Would recommend it for anyone looking to do a 2 ohm setup at around 800 watts. It was cheap to boot!

This amp is just simply amazing! I went from my Alpine MRP-M500 at 300RMS to this amp at 400RMS at 4 ohms and wow!.. this amp sounds way cleaner, much nicer and so much more powerful! I just bought this amp and ran it for about 20 minutes and was amazed. Cant wait to run it at 1ohm and really push the amp. Even with my weak electrical system at 12.8 volts it produces a lot of power and stays so clean!
Pros:
Clean!
Powerful
Highly Efficient! (Doesn't dim my lights like my Alpine MRP-M500)
Low Cost
Great Looks
Cons:
Have yet to find any real cons..... the black metal at the edges is very sharp.. so do be careful!

My friend has this amp pushing a 15 inch l7 and it sounds great, its such a sturdy amp, all metal and heavy duty. I would get this amp but its not enough power for what i need...overall if you got the money and your subs match the ratings, don't think about it, just buy it. its the best amp for the money hands down.

Although I have not owned many amps, the Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D is a very nice amp. It is powering two Alpine Type SWR-1243Ds and makes them hit! It is nice to know it is CEA compliant, however I could only get about 900-1000 Watts without it clipping. I knew this when I bought it though since there is no way I could run it at 14.4 Volts because my car puts out less than that under load. Overall it is a very worthy amplifier and would buy again if I needed to!

Only running a single 10" Fi audio SSD at 2ohm on this amp (for now), but it pounds. The illumination on the front is a little bright when I have my seat folded down at night, so I wish there was a switch for that but I can just fold the seat up if need be. Also the angled terminals are a little annoying getting the wires in but it does make the install look a little cleaner. So all in all, can't really beat this amps power for under $200. I will definitely buy another hifonics amp for my other car!
