Performance meets Value

The new 2010 Hifonics Brutus amplifiers are much more than a good-looking amplifier. Underneath the solid aluminum casing, you will find quality amplifier components that are sure to satisfy any compatible subwoofer. The new BRZ amplifiers have changed the heat sinks on each side to vertical aluminum fins. Since heat rises, these fins draw the heat up and allow it so effectively dissipate from the amplifier. The vertical aluminum heat sinks are located on two sides of the amplifier and effectively maintain the temperature of the amplifier to prevent any overheating. Combined with the other power/protection indicators and the 4-way system protection circuitry, the Hifonics Brutus amplifiers prove to be a safe, efficient, and reliable amplifier for your subwoofer.

Every Brutus amplifier is CEA-2006 certified. That means you can be confident in knowing that you are paying for real power. The wattage that the amplifier is rated at is the wattage that it will consistently produce and supply your subwoofer with. This is typically a feature just found on the higher-end, expensive amplifiers, however all the Brutus series amps are CEA-2006 compliant with a low price tag. By choosing one of these amplifiers, you will be high-grade performance and still have money left over. Performance meets value with the Hifonics Brutus amplifiers!

Power Specifications - Subwoofer Channel

RMS Power @ 4 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 4 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.

Peak Power @ 4 ohms
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. However, some manufacture's do not provide an RMS figure and therefore one cannot be advertised.

Bridged Peak/Max Power

Bridging refers to combining two channels on an amplifier to create one channel with double the voltage and an increased power output. A 2-channel amplifier will bridge down to 1-channel and a 4-channel amplifier can bridge to create 2-channels. An amplifier is most commonly bridged to drive a subwoofer.

Remember, once you bridge two channels down to one its final impedance will be 4 ohms unless otherwise specified. This rating lists the Peak/Max power created once an amplifier is bridged.

Amplifier Specifications

Amplifier Series
This designates the series of the amplifier. Many amps are available in a litany of different wattage and channel configurations, but maintain consistent features throughout the product line.
Amplifier Class

An amplifier increases the power of the signal being fed to it by taking energy from its power supply and matching the signal but increasing its amplitude. Amplifiers use many different methods for converting these electrical signals and have been categorized into classes.

Class A/B: Greater than 50% of the input signal is amplified while the other percentage is “off”. These amplifiers have a small amount of current flowing through the output transistors all the time which almost eliminates crossover distortion. Class A/B has great sound quality but is not as efficient as class D. These amps are most commonly used to drive speakers.

Class D: Also known as switching amplifiers, class D amps have output transistors that are completely turned “on” or “off”. This means that when the transistors are on, there is almost no voltage across them but when they are off there is significant voltage but no current flowing through it which makes these amplifiers very efficient at the cost of sound quality. These amps are most commonly used to drive subwoofers.

Other Classes: You may see classes such as GH, bD, X, FD, etc. by some manufactures. These amplifiers tend to be either class A/B, D or a hybrid of the two but with improvements to their designs that can make them more efficient or offer better sound quality.

D
Number of Channels
Each channel on an amplifier will power one speaker using a positive and negative cable. There are various types of amplifiers, each designed to power a certain number of speakers. Monoblock amplifiers, also known as single channel, are designed to power one or more subwoofers. These amplifiers often have very high power ratings. On the other hand, multi-channel amplifiers power multiple speakers, usually at lower power ratings. 2-Channel and 4-Channel amplifiers can power car speakers or low powered subwoofers. Occasionally you might see a 5 or 6-channel amplifier that can power speakers and subwoofers at the same time. The most common setup is a monoblock amp to run subwoofers and a 4-channel amp to run door speakers. Check out our Knowledge Base for more information.
1 - Mono
Total RMS Power Output
Total RMS power is measured by multiplying RMS power per channel by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

RMS power is the amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS figure, the louder and cleaner your music sounds.

The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.

2100 watts
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
1/0 AWG
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
1 ohms
Minimum Impedance Bridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
Not Bridgeable
THD at Rated RMS Power
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
<0.1%
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
No
Preamp Outputs
Many amplifiers are equipped with RCA preamp outputs which pass the original music signal from the source to additional amplifiers. This is known as daisy chaining because the source connects to the first amp, and the first amp connects to the second amp, etc. The advantage to daisy chaining is you only need one 2-channel RCA cable to transfer the signal from the head-unit to the amplifier, and then one additional cable for each amp being daisy chained.
1 pair
Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

Low-pass (LP)
Low-Pass Crossover Frequency
The low-pass crossover frequency is typically used for subwoofers. It can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable low-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies below the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies above the set point gently or harshly roll-off, depending on the steepness of the slope.

The steepness of the roll-off slope is measured in dB/octave and refers to the rate of attenuation (lowering of volume) outside their pass bands.

35 - 250 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
15 - 35 Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
>95 dB
Bass Boost
The objective of the bass boost is to get more kick out of your subwoofer. It is a circuit that emphasizes the lower frequencies at a given point. The bass boost should always be set first before setting the gain. This feature is known for destroying subwoofers and is commonly used incorrectly, so be cautious.
0 - 10 dB
Bass/Gain Remote
If the amp comes with a bass/gain remote you will be able to control the level of your bass from your dashboard. Typically bass remotes also include a 16-20 ft. wire for installation.
Yes
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if an amp generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the amp from overheating (burning).
No
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
200A x 1 
Strappable
Some amplifiers can be "strapped" together in order to increase the output of a single audio channel. These amplifiers feature RCA preamp outputs, allowing you to pass the signal directly from one amp to the other to ensure consistency.
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Yes
Sonic Certified Amplifier
Sonic Certified amplifiers have been tested by the experts at Sonic Electronix to meet or exceed the wattage ratings provided by the manufacturer. If this is marked as Yes, then you can trust the wattage ratings. If marked as No, then we have tested the amplifier and it did not meet the advertised wattage ratings. If marked as Not Tested, then the Sonic Electronix experts have not yet been able to test the amp.
Amp Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature will tell you if the amplifier has the capability to connect to a Bluetooth device.

December 14, 2010

I've had this amp for about a week and so far I absolutely love it.

For the price, I feel that this is a really good deal. I was looking for 800wrms @ 4 ohms, and this is what I found. It sucks every amp of current from my stock alternator, I need to upgrade that... but for now, it pushes 1 10" sub pretty hard (and then the lights start to dim at about 80% volume) so there's not a whole lot of sustaining power for the deep bass notes, but that's not Brutus's fault now is it?

I like the features (high and low crossovers, bass eq, bass boost @ 45hz, etc.) and I like the overall appearance of the amplifier. Somewhere I read that these amps appear to be cheaply made. If I was really anal and went over this thing with a fine toothed comb, I might say that the adjustment knobs have a lot of play to them and the plastic parts feel cheap, but everything works properly and I personally have no complaints.

I like the 0 gauge power ground inputs as well as the speaker outputs, all of which are female type terminals. Personally, I love it when I can stuff a wire in a hole and screw it down nice and tight, there are no ifs, ands, or buts about it; that wire isn't going ANYWHERE.

Overall, this is a great product.

Can't go wrong with Brutus. Great price!

June 1, 2012

Phenomenal amp. Gives more than enough power to my 12" Fi Bl at around 1.4 ohms. Since it is class D, it runs very efficiently and puts minimal strain on my stock Jeep Wrangler electrical system, even with its massive power output. Aesthetically one of the best looking amps I have ever owned or seen, the blue lights look awesome at night if the amp is not hidden. Cannot comment on durability yet. As for "ease of use", I found it difficult to set the gains to match an input level of 2 volts because the control ranges from 9V to 0.2V with no markings between. Other than that, superb amp. Buy it, you wont be disappointed!

Be real, where else can you get CEA certs for a 2100 watt amp for this kind of money? Maxxsonics has done a fine job of making an aesthetically pleasing amplifier, with all of the power one could need.

I was always proud of finding a pair of Pioneer subwoofers in the trash [and using them for many months], until I got this amplifier. It blew both subwoofers at separate times in the first actual hour of play time. Nothing impressive, but the power output is comparable to an AQ 2200D. I like this amplifier, and yes, the blue LED behind "Hifonics" is even well-constructed enough to stay looking serious about car audio.

April 8, 2011

I have 2 of these running one coil each on a new Digital Designs 3512sc.
The coil is a D1. The amps run cool and seem to be very efficient.
I did a clamp test with a 45hz tone and with a box rise of about 2.2ohms, I was getting a tad over 1450 watts per amp. (amp is rated at 1400@ 2 ohms)
I have had the amps for a few months now and have given them a few hard, extended runs with out issues.

IMO, a very nice bang for the $$$ spent.
The only thing that I do not like are the rather sharp edges on the cooling fins. Also, where Hifonics puts the tamper stickers on the backs of the amps, they are prone to tearing along the amp seam from mounting.

FIrst of this amp is amazing, i've had about 6 amps in my day. This one pushes more power then amps made by MTX, KICKER, ALPINE; with the same rating of power. I push 4 7500 Mtx 12" subs. My system is easily the loudest system in my town. If you want an amp that pushes more than 2500 rms at 1 ohm and will NEVER run hot, NEVER. ive had this amp for almost 2 years now,and I have played music full blast for hours at a time, my amp has never had trouble or even weaked for a second. Just to show you how much power I was pushing this amp broke my windshield.

I bought this amp about 6 months ago and its does it duty. I was pleasantly surprised! 1st I put it on 2 Cerwin Vega VMax 15 dual 4 & they lasted maybe a good 5 days @ 1ohm. Next I placed it on 2 Fosgate P2 and in a custom slot ported box. They wang something terrible! I recently bought 2 Brz 2400 & 4 Cerwin Vegas Strokers for my Tahoe. I have yet to install them but from that point forward I'm a Hifonics guy..Great sound, Great Cost, Great Quality.

February 8, 2012

This amp is worth the money. Nothing more, nothing less. I found the supposed 0 gauge inputs a pain because they face downward, a huge design flaw. They also are smaller then most true 0 gauge brands, so you'll have to cut more copper out just to have them fit. Also, the power input and ground input are right next to each other, so when you have wire that doesnt fit and you jave a couple strands hanging out, the spark show begins. This is a very power hungry amp (at 1 ohm), you definitly need to upgrade your cars electrical system, i had a mechman 220a alternator and the big 3 done with 1 battery and that worked fine, never dropped below 13.8 on a hot day. Overall this is a very decent amp. The inputs were really the only thing that I think was a complete fail on Hifonics part.

I got this amp Nov 2010 as a package with 2 RE Audio SEX 12's. The amp hits HARD. I've since sold the RE SEX 12's and had 3 12" Kicker CVX in the car.
I sold the 3 Kickers and now have 2 JL Audio 10w7s which quake.
I'm running the JL Audios @ 1.5 ohms and the amp is killing it!!!

The amp doesn't suck much power as I have a 140 alternator. The JL Audio 1000/1 sucks so much more power than this amp.

this amp is a very good quality amp. I had it on 2 RE 12s and will be putting it on 2 15s in a wall! I went to a comp and did 140 with a throw together throw in box.

this amp rocks...

May 10, 2011

Had the 1700.1 befor this one, n I decided to grab the 2100.1 n give my 1700.1 to my bro.
I'm runnin 2 12" MB Quarts at 1 ohm..and lets just say you feel n hear me comin. I still have stock battery n alt. but once I get my new battery, n lookin for another box, it will be 1000 times harder.
Definitely worth its price n then some.
only down fall, don't like that the possitive n ground are side by side. 2 gauge wire is a pain to work wit, but all n all its 5 stars

also as a side note to guy running l7's at full settins on everything, thats why your goin into protect mode. turn your bass boost down to half way.

I just got this amp couple of days ago only took 3 days. Great shipping! I really like this amp the blue led lights up your trunk real nice there are a couple things that I don't really like the side heat fin things are very sharp I literally sliced 2 of my fingers when I went to put it on my box and I had it sitting on my hand so when I pulled my hand out it seriously cut 2 of my fingers and bleed lol. The other thing is it sounds like a big wave or something when I have it turned all the way down and when I'm changing the song it hits I never had a problem with any of my other amps. I have it hooked up to a new Rockford Fosgate T1 12 at 4 ohms hits real hard though

I bought this about 1 month ago and I have it hooked up to 1 12'' Ascendant Audio Havoc (1250wrms) wired at 2 ohms and this thing pounds. The amp is only about 3/4 of the way up, I have smelt the sub burning a little bit. The new BRZ series is by far the best hifonics has put out. Upgrade your electrical and these things are amazing TRUST ME!! (The heat sink fins are very SHARP so be carefull)

Decent amp, I have it running my Kicker L7s, have the amp turned up all the way, and barely gets hot, turns off and goes to protect mode sometimes, I'm thinking its just cuz of my stock electrical system, not too sure, but good amp.

Looks good to me!

April 9, 2011

I just bought this amp to power my two Sonic sound lab subs that are on order, the amp looks great and is very well designed, hadn't looked it up yet but I have a feeling it is going to make my truck shake apart when I get my subs in. I also got a Hifonics 6.5 component set with another Hifonics amp. Very clean! Very excited to get it all installed!

I got dis beast feeding 2 15's Q Power in my little Mitsubishi Mirage. It hits so hard my trunk dont even know what to do. I have trouble keeping my rear view mirror straight (or on) my lights dim a lil but need a Big 3 Upgrade (along wit upgrading to a Kinetik battery and maybe sum Dynamat). I've had it on one time for bout 3hrs at 75% vol and it only warmed up. Hasn't gotten burning hot nor has it turned off on me. GUARANTEE TO SET OF ALARMS IN PARKING LOTS. I jus only wished I would of waited a lil longer to get it (price wise). I would of gotten the BRZ2400.1D

Very good amp, I was a bit hesitant about getting Hifonics. But, seeing that its CEA certified, I went for it.

Its power hungry so, you'll need some extra power for this beast
The blue light is very cool, and a big selling point for me

Very good quality. I would definitely recommend

BRZ2100.1

March 2, 2013

I had a BRZ1200.1 Awesome amps also had a 2100 for a while. I ran my 1200.1 on crap voltage at .5 ohms DAILY never had an issue and i dropped down to almost 9 volts daily. it was bad, but the amp took it like a champ never screwed anything up was good to go every morning every day until i sold it. Now I have power hungry subs Team Aftermath Series 3 woofers. 2500 rms will take 4k daily. going to be getting 2 of these for now at .5 each strapped at 1 ohm. Then ill be getting 2 more for a 2100 on each sub. I love hifonics always have. Just gotta come into some money and ill order these bad boys up!

A Great Value; But With Few Draw-Backs

March 2, 2013

This amplifier is solid; well-built, and has many features that make set-up a breeze. Puts out rated power; may suggest a secondary battery and Big 3 wire-upgrade for this amp to have solid voltage. The Black Heat-Sink is fairly sharp though, and the sticker on the bottom for the warranty can be rubbed off due to sliding the amp, so be careful!

I bought this amp about 6 months ago and its does it duty. I was pleasantly surprised! 1st I put it on 2 Cerwin Vega VMax 15 dual 4 & they lasted maybe a good 5 days @ 1ohm. Next I placed it on 2 Fosgate P2 and in a custom slot ported box. They wang something terrible! I recently bought 2 Brz 2400 & 4 Cerwin Vegas Strokers for my Tahoe. I have yet to install them but from that point forward I'm a Hifonics guy..Great sound, Great Cost, Great Quality.

Excellent amp for any speakers. It has a lot of power and is an excellent buy for a cheap price. This amp hangs with the big boys. It also glows blue "Hifonics" lettering that puts the cherry on the cake.

I must say for the price i highly recommend this amp to anyone who requires power. I had a fosgate 1000 watt power series amp hooked up at 1 ohm to my Pioneer 12's that required 2000 watts rms and my amp would shut down from time to time but this hifonics amp doesn't shut down at all. Highly recommend for Sonix price cuz i payed $500 for only 1000 watts for my fosgate and i only payed a lil over $300 for this 2000 watt beast. Am highly satisfied with this amp thanks alot Sonic.
