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 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.

1000 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.
4 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.
0.95%
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.

30 - 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.
<0.1 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.
80A x 1 
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.

Winner, hands down

February 20, 2013

When i bought this amp, i was skeptical because of the long hated line of Hifonics products.

When i got this amp, i hooked it up to my Kicker 15" L7... i had the amp at a 2 ohm load giving the L7 a good 750 rms and damn... It sounded like that L7 had a full on 1000 rms load going into it.. I had to tape down various plastic pieces in the back of my car and secure my trunk with padding...

Get...this..amp. Also check out the 1200.1D brutus series.. That is my current amp!

I have had mine a month or so have it pushing 2 12'' HE2 400rms ea. Wired down to 1 ohm small sealed box.

*Grannie is NEAR DEAF and she knows when I pull up!*

While playing juice box 50 feet from grannies house in her back yard
it rattled some glass nick knacks off the computer stamd and rattled her windows and the neighbors : )

.. with a big ported box it'd B MUCH louder...for 150.00 you will be ecstatic.

November 7, 2011

Bought this amp to power a 12' mtx t9500 that my friend gave me i was a bit disappointed in myself my friend told me to buy a 2000 watt amp i bought this it barelly powered my sub cause i ordered the wrong amp. But this amp still banged like crazy in my truck i would recommend this amp to anyone on a budget and wants to get crazy loud bass. I myself returned it for the 1500.1d wich is what i should have bought but didnt listen. My bad. But Sonic Electronix exchanged it for the other one after paying the difference this is my 6th purchase from them never had any regrets. I love Sonic Electronix

Is power what you demand? Then power is what you'll get

November 4, 2011

This baby will supply you with all the power you need. It's one of the better if not best bang for buck amplifiers you can purchase here. It's very efficient, compact, durable and powerful. I've had this for 6 months and it still runs like new. I can't be any happier. However, I will be upgrading to a stronger amp from Hifonics after I buy an additional subwoofer for my system.

Pros:
PRICE
Big power
Long lasting
Small
Runs cool

Cons:
NONE

Tips:
Make sure you break-in the amp. Not doing so can cause pre-mature failure.

August 10, 2011

Let's start by saying this amplifier will push anything you put on it. It does not even heat up when playing at high levels and the sub almost blew off my trunk. Love for what I payed for it and will use it until it gives away. Definitely recommend this product.

July 29, 2011

This amp is just amazing. My older amp was a 2 channel Nitro 1000 watt amp and it had alot more cons than pros. It was able to push my subs but it just didnt have enough power. I just installed my HFI1000.1D yesterday and it blows everybody out of the water! My subs hit harder than ever and you can hear me come down the block. I set off so many alarms while i was powering my subs with this amp. Definately worth the price.

Best Bang for your buck!

March 20, 2012

I was a little skeptical of Hifonics because of the power they claimed with such a low price, but i took the gamble and I couldn't be happier. I have it hooked up to 2 pioneer TS-W308D4's wired down to 1 ohm. It powers them very well. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that these things do rated power. My 2 12's are louder than my friends 4. I had them metered and hit a 143! I'm about to buy a Brutus BRZ2400 for a set of 18's. Definitely will stay with Hifonics for a while!

Wicked little amp its a true 1000 rms I have it on a 2010 Rockford fosgate T1D215 in the high output vent box running in 1 ohm I swear I think if I turned the gain past 3/4 I could make that T1 15 start popping. It hits just as hard as my buddys 2 l7 15inch with a Rockford fosgate 1000.1 amp. Great great amp.

I have this amp pushing 2 Kicker CVR 12's at 2ohm in my 95 Civic Sedan. This amp is Nasty!! My subs are currently in a sealed box that is a bit to small for the subs and it still pounds hard, everything rattles. Building a ported box to specs and they will hit even harder.
The amp never over heats (and its tucked in an area with almost no air flow).
I very highly recommend this amp to anyone. Its cheap and has more than plenty of power!!

Big surprises in small packages

September 26, 2012

At first, I didn't think this amp would be anything special since the company who makes Hifonics equipment also owns Autotek (blecch!). I've had this hooked up for about two months though and it's nothing short of amazing. Mated with two 12" Volfenhag 1000W subwoofers, it blew my old setup right out of the water. The sound is so clean, too! It doesn't sound muffled or muddy like a lot of other budget-model amplifiers. If you need a good 1000W monoblock but don't have the money for higher-end brands like Alpine or Kicker, this model is worth every penny and won't disappoint.

Powerful little Amp

September 13, 2012

I was first pointed to this amp when I was looking for a monoblock to power my 2 Rockford P1's when I first got into the whole Car Audio thing. It was cheap compared to a lot of the other amps, and the specs were better than the 2 channel Kenwood I had running my subs before.

When I got it, I must say I was a little surprised at its size. Relatively small compared to my previous one, but I had my car stereo enthusiast neighbor help me hook it up, and tune everything just right. The difference was like night and day. Maybe it was because the "professionals" who hooked up my stuff at ABC Warehouse were not so professional, or maybe this is just a much better amp, but regardless it worked great and it has been for nearly 2 years now.

I'm currently powering 2 ten inch Alpine Type R's with this 1000 watt monoblock and they still sound amazing, and right around what you need for them.

The only downside that comes to mind is that rap songs, or any song with a lot of continuous heavy bass, at loud volumes, can cause the amp to shut off and go into protect mode. This really isn't such a bad thing, as it protects the product you paid for, but its just a little inconvienent because I can't get the thing to go back to normal without turning my car off, and then back on again. I figured turning the headunit off, and turning the power off to the amp, then letting it sit 15 minutes would do the trick, but no luck.

Still works great, and I just tuned the gain down a tiny bit so that doesn't happen anymore.

Really no complaints. Good solid amp, just the right amount of power, and it was quick and easy to swap out my 2 channel amp for this one. So for 150$, this is a steal to me.

May 21, 2012

I Purchased this hifonics amplifier and had my whole system professionally installed at a local shop. I Received a call later that evening that the amplifier was toast right out of the box. I even visited the shop a little later, and sure enough the amplifier was not outputting power. Either way i learned my lesson and replaced the hifonics product with a 500 watt kicker amp that was inspected at the factory and passed all quality control tests. Chalk this up to either bad luck or a sketchy product. Seemed like quite a few people liked this product though and had good luck with it.

I'm powering two Orion XTR pros getting the 1000 watts @ 1ohm. It doesn't get hot and the bass knob is awesome and it has two non bridgeable channels. Later I can run them both at 750 watts @2 ohms each once they get broken in. Great size also.

Amp has never went into protection mode never had a problem lets just say i barely have the remote bass knob turned 1/4 of the way and it just hits so hard a course its JL Audio subs but this is the perfect match! Definitely highly recommend this amp if your looking for a 1 ohm 1,000 watt amp! Highly satisfied customer! Can't beat the price either!

Horrible

November 23, 2011

This dumb amp has wasted so much of my time it's ridiculous. I ordered two of these things n both turned out to be defective. The first not putting out any power at all. The second putting out very little power not being able to push my single 12" Kicker L5. I just ordered a Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D hoping it will be way better than this garbage amp. If you been thinking bout buying this amp, don't. Just save up a little more and buy yourself the BRZ1200.1D which is CEA certified unlike this amp. Tech himself told me this amp pushes 600watts out at the most. Hope this helps anyone who has any doubts bout this amp.

Nice little amp!

January 25, 2013

I needed an amp to power two NVX DVC 10" subs but also take up very little space. This thing over delivers, it's compact enough it can very easily fit under a seat or in other tight spaces and is very well constructed.

I have it pushing out about 350 RMS @ 1ohm to my two 10's as that's their RMS rating, and they absolutely pound my car. The amplifier and subs paired together make super crisp and clean bass, no drool and no fuzzy sound. Very snappy tight bass but believe me this amp has no problems feeding my subs when deep lows from music kicks in, it gets amazingly low and has no problems with overheating at all even at high volumes with rock or hip hop, and it's in my spare tire area with a pastic/carpeted cover on top of it.

Overall I give this amp a 5/5 because it delivers everything it's rated for, has great SQ and SPL capabilities, great looks and design.

Same thing happened to me but...

June 1, 2012

Got my amp ran 4 gauge to the batt and ground 16 gauge to the 3 10" JL W0s I was trying to power. Amp cut off, no thumping, messed with gains, boost knob, checked wiring. Still nothing, took it to an audio shop the next day and the guy said it looks like your amp is fried. So i got an RMA number from Sonic, and I waited entirely too long to send it back and 3 days ago I figured what the hell Ill plug her in and see what she does. Well she BANGED!!!! I have no idea what had happened to it before but she works now and thats all I care about! With the enclosure wired at 4ohms this amp has the potential to OVERPOWER 3 10" subs. Idk what was wrong in the first place but if they all bang like this it is a MUST BUY!!!

Best power for the money! I have used Hifonics for at least 15 years. These new hfi still put out the power but for less money. I think the only difference is the signal input dosn't have the same range as their higher grade amps. Good power and good versatility on ohm loads.

Never had any over heating problems, even during the hot summers here in the desert southwest. If this amp should die I will definitely buy it again. You couldn't ask for a better value.

June 9, 2011

I've used for a few months now and it has definitely delivered.
Currently I have one powering 2 12" P2's at about 750W RMS and they sound beautiful. I can go on long road trips just blasting Dubstep and the amp doesn't heat up much at all.
Overall one of the best amps that I've worked with.
The only thing that I can think of that can use some improvement is the mounting points and the bass knob. The mounting points are plastic so be careful when mounting it to something. The bass knob on the other hand seems to get a little sloppy after a while but it still functions so its not really a problem.

High quality for the price. True power output.

March 22, 2011

I would highly recommend this amplifier to anyone needing something around 1000 watts true RMS. I have this amp pushing two 10" Eclipse SW6010's. They are in a ported box built to spec. They didn't really come to life until I put this amp on them. I have owned a lot of different brands. From entry level all the way up to top of the line. This is not the best amp I have owned, but I can tell you it is more than worth the price there asking for it. Very well build, feels like it could take a beating and keep going. Sound quality is fairly high, although I have it setup for maximum sound. Only had it a few days but I am very impressed with this amplifier. If you debating if you should get this amp, I can tell you wont be disappointed with this. This is the second MaxxSonics product I have owned, and I feel like you get a lot of product for your money with them. I definitely won't go anywhere else for my amplifier needs.

The rating is accurate and produces just what it says, a lower quality sub would have been ripped apart by now. HIGHLY recommended! Anyone needing to push 1000w this is what you need. It is really amazing what this little amp can do, (i say that because it is suprisingly small). Don't doubt this one, its got the power it says.

I have to say I was shopping for a while trying to find an amp that would give me the power i need with SQ. although this amp is not CEA 2006 compliant at 14.4 volts it will put out the rms it claims. It makes my 2 10" in a ported box bang hard but also sound good. The amp does not overheat at all for me.
I have a friend that has the hifonics colossus amp with two 12" MTx 9500
And that amp makes those subs work. I'm just giving that as an example that surprisingly enough hifonics is top quality stuff. If you have concerned if hifonics is what they advertise I can yes it is. To tell you the truth it's the name when you buy kicker or alpine.. A lot of people have those brands so that's why most people will over look hifonics. It's a win win if you buy hifonics you save money. A lot of money then take that extra money and upgrade to a better sub or maybe a nice pair of infinity component speakers. The last thing I will say

Hifonics does make cea 2006 compliant amps and either way you can't go wrong

April 1, 2012

This is definitely a great amplifier, has really good power and is an awesome value. Only thing to complain about is once on a cold day the amplifier started to warm up and developed condensation and went into protection mode because of it. Reset the amp and it has been working without any more issues.
I guess this is a good thing rather than a complaint, just was odd that it would condensate to the point of protection mode. I wish the neon could be switched off as well. Badass amplifier otherwise!

Hifonics HFI1000.

February 16, 2012

This small form factor amp is great IMO. Was able to fit it behind my 2007 Dodge Quad Cab passenger seats w/o having to cut any thing out! Pushing 2 (SVC 4ohm) 10" Kickers, wired for 2 Ohm load from the amp and they bump! Amp is putting out great power. I have 2 (6 Ohm) Audiobahn's that will replace these Kickers for a 1.5 Ohm load in the near future (need to mod the box just a bit for size), but I have no doubt this amp can push a couple of power hungry 6ohm sub's. Light doesn't bug me as I can't see it from where it's all installed but it is just a little bright, not a downer though.

Amp is very light, puts out lots of power, nice config options and for the price you can't go wrong for the every day neighborhood disturbance! My one complaint is the cheap plastic feel the amp has. But like I said it's not a heavy amp. I mean imagine running 4-6 10" or 12" subs with two of these. Not much weight coming from amp's but the boxes and subs (not that it matters if you're actually running that kind of power I guess) would be heavy.

I bought this amp to even out the small stereo hook up I had on a Chevy Astro Van, and the amp performed 100% without any issues. I had it hooked up at a 2 ohm load. I really put this thing to the test and it never shut down. As far as never heating up, I let this thing play for 8 hours straight and NEVER A PROBLEM!!! I've been doing installations for 20 plus years and I like to push equipment to its permissible limit and this one passes with flying colors. Hifonics amps are great on power and great on the pocket!! If you are looking for CEA certified, look at BRZ models. These are not CEA certified, but do the job 100%.

I have only had it for a short time, but it has never got hot or even warm at that. It looks pretty good, and is a lot smaller than my previous amp which is a plus. I also noticed my light stop dimming even though im running twice the power I used too. This little guy packs quite a punch, so I would seriously recommend getting it. 5 stars all the way

Initially to power my Murano 2009 withKicker 10cvr10-4 2010 Comp Vr Series 10 Inch 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil 800 Watt Car Subwoofer at 2 ohms

I have got this sub setup in 1Cbuft sub box laced with poly fill cloth inside stringed at 2 ohm in my Nissan Murano sourced from Rear speakers at full range.
The hifonics Amp is pumping out 400 W RMS to it exactly hitting the sweet spot.(Mind these are marketing wattage rates on the amps)
I did got the confirmation from Kicker and Hifonics to arrive at the sweetspot.

WOHAAA .. more than enough bass that my ears can take ;-) (Again depends on your hearing levels ;))

I am generally running the car stereo from my AUX MP3 player and some times CD. This amp and sub combination rocks.
I keep the bass level in general at half way on my deck and sub level at 3/4 TO Rock the car.

Later I have upgraded my Amp to Hifonics zx2000 1.d and put an existing Sony 300 w woofer in Murano and shifted the 1000.1d setup to My Accord 2012. As accords Sony amp was anemic and Sony sub required more power to push it to rocking levels. You know what the same rocking performance repeats in Accord too.

One word of caution. your speaker needs to be setup at 2 ohms to rock the hell out of sub. at 4 ohms the amp is not powerfull enf.

Hope it helps.

Holy wow

This has thoroughly beat on my 12" Volfenhags and my 15" Diamond D6. The power coming out of this tiny, low-end amp is unbelievable, not to mention it stays cool even when maxed out. Granted, judging by the built-in fuse, it can theoretically only push out 960W max, but for the price, how can you beat that?

Two sets of terminals?

January 10, 2013

Does anyone know why these have two sets of terminals when it's supposed to be a mono block?

Aweosme amp

April 4, 2012

This is a great amp. Using a 4g amp kit on a normal car battery and just 13.8v @ the amp, I was able to get 690 watts from just a 2ohm load using the clamp test. Not to bad. It claims 750w@ 2ohms. But of course that's probably a bench test @14.4v. I need to get a yellow top battery soon. Anyway, i'm gonna enjoy this amp for a long time.

Pretty much DOA

December 14, 2011

I Received the Hifi1000.1D amp today, I was very happy at first, plugged in all my power, speaker, remote wires etc etc. When I went to go turn it on, nothing. Only thing working was the protection & Logo light. I'm very mad about this. Seemed like it was cheaply made. It could either be the RCA plugin or + & - outputs for the subs. and also to add in, The remote bass controller seems cheap too. Plugged it in and the wires were loose and didn't have a good connection at all. The logo light on it was flickering just by touching the wire.

Great Buy!!!!!

July 24, 2011

I bought this amp 2 months ago and at first i bought this amp to try it out. I have to say that I'm impressed. I have the amp running at 750 Watts @ 2 ohms, the amp never gets hot never shuts down, it performs 100% up to this point. I am going to really test it by pushing it to the limit at 1000 watts @ 1 ohm. This amp really takes abuse because i play my stereo for 5-8 hours per day on Fr, Sat, Sun. I even turn the van on and let it run all night long till 4 AM and the thing does a perfect job. I will wright another review when i test 4 of these amps @ 1ohm with 8 woofers. Lets see if this amp would perform just as good with another application.

This am really does push out around 1000watts rms @1ohm, For the price it simply cannot be beat. Do some research before you buy most people are happy with these series of amps.

Nice!

September 11, 2014

Had the amp 3 weeks and not one time has it overheated. Gotten warm because of hot a** Texas but it keeps going! Great, smooth sound for the price. The level knob comes in handy as well! I recommend this amp for subs within the RMS range.

Barely Works

February 12, 2012

I recieved this amp, hooked it up, and was amazed when it barely even moved an L3. I had to turn the gain and bass boost all the way up before i could feel anything. Yes, everything was hooked up right. I took my chances on an iffy, non-CEA 2006 compliant amp and it backfired on me.

A Must Have!!

February 16, 2015

The amp does what its suppose to do and that's give all the power to my subs that they can handle. No cons at all...not really any pros other than it does what it is suppose to do and hasnt failed me yet. Ive only had it for 2 weeks so I will be back to do another review. Everything came in the box like it said and showed up on time. Easy to install. Im just now realizing if the blue hifonics badge lit up or not...I'll let you all know.

Why did you choose this?
Sonic Electronix Store
Had this hooked up to my 2ohm Kicker Solo Braic L5. Single sub before but sold the amp due to money issue. So i said why not order this amp again and i must say there is NOTHING BUT BASS AND POWER COMING THE GODS!!! Hifonics has the best amps and this one is all you need for the Skull Rattling Bass!!!

What does the 3 year warrnaty cover?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

It is an extension of the manufacture's warranty, in principal; You simply take your case to SquareTrade should a problem come up. So, Parts and Labor. The great thing about SquareTrade is they actually have the resources to cover shipping to and from, and have an awesome program to get you squared away [pun] quickly. http://www.squaretrade.com/promise .
Of course, what it Doesn't cover, is improper use and abuse. So please don't try to wire this down to .5 ohms , just because you read its possible....no, its not.
