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.

2400 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.
250A 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.

Lots of Power!

April 25, 2011

BAD A$$ AMP! I've ran it at both 1 AND 2 ohms and it slams hard either way, although it obviously hits hardest at 1. If your looking for both SPL and SQ than you've found it in this amp. I recommend beefing up your electric system by AT LEAST doing the BIG 3 UPGRADE and getting a couple STRONG subs that can handle this kind of power. This is not a small, novelty, amp that you get with a $250 system kit. This is a no bull ****, playen with the big boys, rattle your brains out, kick *** amp. I had my system turned up in my back yard while I had to run back in the house for something just to find that not only all the windows in the house rattling but also all the dishes in the kitchen cabinets rattling too! I totally recommend this amp with no question.

BRUTE

September 2, 2011

Just installed the amp a few hours ago. very nice finish and very easy and sturdy connections. I had a power acoustik 4000 bamf which was rated higher at 4 ohms then the hifonics, but the brutus was easily louder and cleaner. I am pushing a Fi Q 18 with the brutus and it is hitting cleaner and harder then ever. If i had a choice to buy this amp again i would do it with out thinking. i would recommend this amp to anyone.

This amp is extremely efficient. Currently running it with stock alt and bat. With absolutely no dimming. However I am going to be doing the big 3 and adding an extra battery for maximum performance. And also, the amp is pushing two RE Audio SXX 15's with ease...the amp barely gets warm.

Great Bang For Your Buck

January 21, 2015

This is basically a 2000 watt RMS amp.
On good electrical systems this amp will do about 1900~2k RMS.
This amps internals are almost identical to the SQ2200.
The main difference between the two is the signal input section and that the SQ uses lesser quality caps.
If you were to have the two amps side by side with the boards showing, you will see that they are the same.
I highly recommend this amp. It literally puts out the same power as a SQ2200 (an almost $500 amp) for half the cost, and its better built.
However, no stock four cylinder electrical system will do for this current hungry beast.
A high output alternator, a nice battery, some high quality 1/0 power and ground with the big three under the hood IS A MUST.
NO RA***R or A******N B**S wire will do...

Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her amp!! it is so big. [scoff]

February 3, 2012

I installed this amp along with an auxiliary battery, cap, and big 3 running a single t2 15 and it impresses me everytime i listen to it. With the volume up it shakes the dash and whole car so bad i have to use the remote to turn down the volume or wait for the song to end, no joke. After listening for hours the amp is still relatively cool to the touch, even with it installed @1 ohm. My gain is a little over halfway turned up and bass boost is right at the lowest setting. No distortion or clipping. i also reviewed the rockford fosgate t2 15 dual 2 ohm on this site. might post another review after i get the set-up metered. I'm hoping for low to mid 140's. I also ran the amp on two type r 12s @4 ohms in a sealed box before the t2. The amp was barely turned up and made them slam even @4 ohms with phenomenal sound quality. Put the time and effort into a quality install and you wont be disappointed.

BRE2500.1d

August 30, 2011

I own the BRUTUS ELITE BRE2500.1d. If you don't know what this is, look it up. It's the dealer only Brutus model, retail protected, not to be sold online, or bought other then a official Maxxsonics dealer. The BRE2500.1d is an upgraded version of the BRZ2400.1d. The BRZ2400.1d is CEA-2006 certified, which means it meets or exceeds the national amplifier output standard. CEA-2006 certified amplifiers are guaranteed to produced the power they are rated for, at a certain voltage and ohm load. These amps are cheap, but these are not like your average knockoff, that claims 2000, and only does 600. These are TRUE wattage amps. By the way, the BRZ2400.1d is capable of stacking, which means that you can hook the amps up together in unison and make both amp perform as a single unit, produces double power at 2ohm. Bottom line, these are the best amplfiers you are going to find at this price level... Cheers.

September 10, 2010

Great amp. There are not a lot of reviews because these amps just came out and let me tell u they are no joke. I can hardly sit in my car when the volume is turned up. The bass is very clean and loud. These amps are cea compliant so you cant go wrong. I took the risk and brought two of these amps and i am more than satisfied. I got way more than my moneys worth and for some reason these amps dont get hot at all great work hifonics !!!!! Autotek and Hifonics the best amps ever made period.....

Not the Average system

October 15, 2012

Ok so I've had many amps and systems over the years and all I can say is wow, I bought 2 of these and strapped em together for 4800 watts rms. Can't beat that for 600. I hooked em up to a couple 12's aand man does it slam. Won't over heat with the set up that I have, the fins are sharp and the ends are cheap plastic but hey for 300 I can't complain a whole lot. Thanks sonic for the hook up, btw don't mount this amp on the box I have seen em catch on fire from bad set ups, they just can't take the vibrations.

September 16, 2012

I have had this sub for about 3 months now and since then I've used it with two Fi Car Audio Q's 12 in I had the amp at 1ohm bridged and hitting hard as a mofo when I sold the 12's . I hooked the amp to my 4 8 inch punch xlcs the amp is able to give them about 1200 watts which makes thoose 8s pound . I am in love with the ability to go from pushing two massive 12s then be gentle enough to move thoose little 8s . Hifonics has earned a customer for life. My two cents , look no further you will not regret it!

Great amp with plenty of power.

November 22, 2011

I've had this amp wired down to 1Ohm powering my HCCA 12" at the full 2400w and i can say i've had no problems with it so far!

Its a beautiful amp with lots of power, and just suits the HCCA perfectly. Haven't had any problems with distortion or clipping even when running the amp at full capacity, its also not as power hungry as some people say, i've found it to be no better or worse than comparitive amps.

The only problem i had with this amp was the cable to the Bass Level, its a very fragile CATe5 style connector and broke the securing clip when i plugged it in, but a replacement cable soon fixed that.

Great build quality, true rated power, best value in its class.

March 26, 2011

I can't say enough good things about this amp. I purchased this amp 12 months ago to replace a Hifonics XX-Hercules. I've been runing it all out at 1ohm (HO alternator, big3, kinetic power cell etc) on four Memphis Mojo 15's. Build quality is superb and IMO is one of the best in the 2-2.5k RMS class. Puts out true unclipped power at 1 Ohm if your cars electrical is up to par. Hifonics BRZ series rivals the old XX line, you simply won't find a better amp for the price.

Great amp!

February 16, 2013

I currently have this amp running 2 12" RE Audio SEXs and they're only wired to 2 ohms and I'm getting great flew in the outside panels around my trunk in my 2010 Malibu and Im actually getting flex in my rear window and front windshield as well! I'm very impressed with this amp so far and am currently awaiting the arrival of 2 fully loaded Fi Q 12s to throw the full 2400 to. I'm absolutely stoked to see what this thing will do at full power!
*Stock headunit, 4 cu. ft ported box with 2 RE SEX 12s, Kinetik HC2400 Battery, Big 3 Upgrade, 2010 Chavy Malibu, BRZ2400 (only putting out 1700 wrms, for now)*
CAUTION: the only negative is it is all machined steel and has pretty sharp edges, like the corners and heat sinks so be careful!

I have this amp wired at 1 ohm pushing two RE Audio SXX12D4s in a ported box tuned to 33Hz, I have had no issues so far and the amp has never gotten hot to the touch.

A great watt per dollar amp that does what is says. I have no doubts that I am hitting close to 140db.

Stop looking at whatever amp you previously were using or looking at, The brutus series is amazing. never overheats (its in direct sunlight for me), easy to use, and looks great. The only thing i wish it had was a switch that would allow you to turn off the blue hifonics light (which is really bright).

June 25, 2012

The first amp i received was defective (went into permanent protect mode) but Sonic Electronix replaced it under warranty and a week later i got a new one. This Amp is VERY power hungry, i had to do the big 3 upgrade and upgrade to a 250AMP alternator with an Optima yellow top battery and 0 gauge wiring. They push my Audiopipe TXX-BF15's very well and do AT LEAST rated power. Its a great amp and I would recommend it for sure!

Good amp for the money

May 13, 2012

I have this amp wired at 1 ohm powering two Sundown audio SA12s and i would recommend this amp. It has many nice features like slave mode however, you will need to upgrade your electrical system to get the full power this amp has to offer. You will at least need to do the big 3 in 1/0 gauge wire at a minimum. I have the big 3, kinetic 600 battery, and a 4 farad Cadence capacitor and my lights still dim but only at full tilt. My only complaint with this amp is that the black heat-sink fins on the side of the amp are VERY sharp. But overall this is a great amp for the money and I would recommend it to anyone.

Hifonics Brutus BRZ2400.1D is a monster

February 26, 2012

I love this amp, i got it 3 days ago and let me tell you as soon as i started breaking it in i was in shock, this amp pushes every bit of 2400 rms and more, you need atleast 2 good size deep cell batteries and a cap if you want to read your voltage but im pushing 2 15 rockford T2's and my jeep is flexing, looks and feels like a giant lung lol, im getting my spl reading this week, i would highly recommend this amp to anyone who wants power for a low price, the nearest price that ive found for this amp or one almost like it is no less than 850. I appreciate all the help from SonicElectronix on my shipping questions, i will be buying from here again, im very happy with this product.

Room to expand the BOOM

February 8, 2012

I bought this amp last August and hooked it up to a pair of 07CVR104s @4ohms. This thing pushes 850 @ 4ohms which is 50 over rms for the kickers I bought and man does my truck boom! I dont really have anything to compare it to but honestly I don't think I'll ever need to buy another amp. At least not for bass. Theres alot of setups that this amp can handle its up to you to get what you want out of it. It's a snug fit under the seat but it works. Plenty of knobs to tweak the bass to your liking. Would recommend this amp to anyone and everyone. Great buy that was worth every penny.

Let me start off by saying I have never owned a hifonics amp before I bought this one. I've always bought Rockford amps. But this thing pounds hard, doesn't drain my battery at all. I have it running at 1ohm pushing 4 alpine type-r 12s. I run the heck out of this amp and it NEVER gets warm. Not even a little. I'm shocked as to how clear the bass is and how hard it pounds.

Great amp for the money!

December 1, 2011

Awesome amplifier. It actually blew my Fi BTL 12, it needs a recone now. After reading other reviews on this amp, and seeing others bench test it at over 2600 watts RMS, I knew I had to have it. Works great and built very well. Very heavy and Ive laid desks and stuff on it before with no problems. Only complaint I have is the wire receptacles for power and ground are angled down a little too much and its hard to get the wire into them unless that side of the amp is hanging off an edge.

Overall a great amplifier, period!!

1 BRZ2400.1 + 2 RE18XD4 subs = Big Bang

November 15, 2011

I have this amp pushing 2 REsxD4 18" subs in the back of my Tahoe and it slams. It's already cracking the welds on my rear barn doors. I have 2X optima yellow top batteries and 2 DC 270XP alternators as well as a big 3 upgrade. This is a great amp! When I get more money I am going to upgrade to a Sundown 2500.1, Audioque 3500.1, or a Rockford T2500.1bd. Those are the logical step up amps from here. This amp makes sitting in my truck painful with the volume up as it is.

Amazing Amp!!!!!!!

October 12, 2011

Ok, So I got this to power my 2 JL Audio 12W6V2's. Build and tuned a custom box to fit my E46 M3 Convertible and all I can say is WOWWWWW!!!! They eat up the power and blow the socks off ANYTHING for SQ and BASS!!!! I tuned my box for 45Hz and even though I Soundproofed the crud outta the whole car, the Bass just ROCKS!!!!! I drive to Miami a lot and have blasting all the way (three-four hours) and when I arrive, No cutting, lots of heat from the subs and the amp but no issues!!!! I love this Amp and HIGHLY recommend to anybody that likes BASS. Keep up the good work guys.

AMAZING AMP

April 19, 2011

I have ran this amp for about a month to 2 Sundown Audio SA 10" dual 4 ohm subs wired down to one ohm and I am amazed. This sub is not for the faint of heart, it's beefy, and it demands power. I'm running a 280 amp alternator and a stinger sp1500D battery, so far my voltage has only dropped to 13.2 on full tilt. If you have the money (and the electrical system) do not hesitate to buy this amp. You will not be disappointed

Pushes 2400 watt rms @ 1 ohm without getting hot. What more do you want? Hooked it up to an oscilloscope, gain the whole way up, bass boost the whole way up... plays a 45 hz test tone -0 db without clipping. Plus it slams my RE SXX 12's. I've had it for over half a year now, it's great. The only gripe I have is it's really sharp, watch you don't cut yourself during install.

I've been building great car audio systems since 1993. In the past I would only own Rockford Fosgate amps. All of that has changed cause of value I get with the Hifonics Brutus amps (More watts per dollar). This beast is whamming 8 12s (Pioneer TS-W309D4) @ 1 ohm. Everything shakes from the front bumper to the back bumper. The box is sealed @1.35 cu ft per woofer. The gain is all the way down. In 6 months of ownership, its never ran hot or shut down. I do suggest the big 3 upgrade and extra batteries cause it is power hungry. That is normal for what u get in return. I could write great things about this amp all day-everyday, but I'll stop here. Go get 1 and you won't be disappointed. P.S. If you are looking for a great amp for your highs, Try Hifonics Zeus ZXI Series.

Slamming amp! watch out world.

May 30, 2010

I recently had a brutus 2608. It was slamming hard already, but when i saw the new brz 2400 brutus i sold my 2608. Once installed i adjusted the amp to my specs, and man let me tell you this amp pounds harder than my 2608 brutus. Had it bench tested and made more than 2600 rms at 14.4 volts. So i really started thinking that the models before the brz model were really overrated. Look out fosgate, kicker, and all the rest of those so called top amps, because hifonics ain't playing. Plus the price is way cheaper.

To start let me say this thing is a monster! I have real 0 gauge wires all around as well as the big 3. I have a factory HU and a LOC. 3 10 inch mtx 5500 in a ported box in my "box" (scion xb). The value of this amp is insane you would have to spend twice as much to get this much clean power elsewhere. My only complaints are cosmetic the plastic ends I wish was metal and I had to put my power and ground in before I mounted the amp. The angle they are pointing down was too much. Be prepared the blue lights behind the name are bright. Everything else is amazing my 3 10s hit so hard and so clean. I will say do the big 3 my amp went into protection mode one time at a stop light at idle and your lights will dim. This is power hungry but with that much coming out you should expect that.

BRZ2400.1d Not putting out enough...?

September 17, 2011

I've got this amp, the BRZ2400.1d hooked up with 1/0g, BIG 3, HO 220+A Alt, Optima Yellow beside the battery and 300A fuses all around. ALL of my grounds are short and perfect, and I have the amp tuned correctly by an ossilliscope. I am running it on two WMD 12's @ 1Ohm, and obviously this amp doesn't put out what it claims... I have to crank the gain up, crank the BASS on my HU, AND turn the bass knob all the way up, JUST TO GET IT TO BARELY HIT... I'm not sure if this is a defective amp or what, but I've been installing for about 5 years and I KNOW that something is going on with this amplifier. I will not purchase another product from Maxxsonics again, too many issues with their products.

All the hifionics amps say one thing and do another. If you get a 2400 watt Brutus its not kicking out 2400 watts not even close. Go to you local car stereo shop and they will tell you not to buy Hifionics. 100% the worst amp I have ever had DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

This amp is pretty decent.

Not the best bang for the buck amp but def an amp to look into buying if you want decent bass.

Good for the price!

August 15, 2011

This amp is pretty good for the price! It claims to be 2400 watts at 1 ohm, but I highly doubt that. The amp gets really hot anytime when running it, and doesn't really put out "clean" power. I upgraded from the BRZ1700.1D, and noticed no difference at all! If I had heard this before buying it I wouldn't have bought it, since it seems to put out the same power as the 1700. But for the price you can't go wrong. I would recommend getting the BRZ1700.1D if you were thinking of this one. You will not notice any difference what-so-ever, you will save some money, and the only thing you will lose is the ability to say you're pushing 2400 watts, which it doesn't even push even with enough electrical to run several of these!

Best Answer: Thats where the specs come into play.... ive seen some "better-newer" models have a shorter low-high range or something you may not have noticed before. Really when it comes to the same make and modle id go line for line on the specs, and then of course price, and then look. Dont forget anything over a 1000 amps, your gunna have to upgrade you power supply (battery alternator) to get the full numbers on the box.
