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.

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.
Brutus (Hifonics)
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.
External 250A Fuse Required
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.

solid amp

May 29, 2014

I have this amp running 2 skar vvx 15v2s d4 wired to 1 ohm. Gain only half way more power than they can handle. I have the big 3 done with 1awg ofc nvx wire and a extra battery xs d 3400. Still have to get an alt. My current alt is a 105 amp. And other battery is a everstart 800cc amp. This amp is power hungry. I also recomend putting the remote wire on a seperate switch. My head unit stopped turing it on . S***ty pioneer. Amp will get hot but it wont turn off. Just give it plenty of breathing room underneath. Great product. I slam it for 45 minutes at a time. My commute to colledge. Everyday . About three months now. Like i said only prob wws the remote wire . That happened about 2weeks after i bought it.

Great Amp. Don't waste money oon big brand names

April 30, 2014

This amp is the absolute best option for anything under $300. It's built pretty beefy, and it does as close to rated power, as one will. Put this on (8) JL subs, rated at 300-400 rms, and it pushed them to the maximum! Design/Ease of use has (4) stars because of the angled wire inputs. Makes for a stubborn install and mount. Otherwise, best amp out for $300 or less.

This is a great amp. If you are looking for awesome power at budget price this is it. I have thos beast pushing two mofo 12s and they romp. Needs alot of power to work properly but well worth the sacrifice for the price of this amp. I would recommend this amp because where else are you gonna find 2400 watts rms and actually get it for less than 300 bucks

Very nice and clean power

August 19, 2013

Did a clamp test on my car's electricals which is 80 amp stock alt, one kinetik hc 1800 in the hood and one in the trunk, big 3 all done. I monitored the signal with an oscope used a 50 hertz test tone with voltages dropping down to 13.6.

The result: with impedance/box rise up to 1.31 ohms (subs wired to 1 ohm) this baby pumped out 2095 clean rms with no distortion at all. The results were louder than any 5000 watt power acoustik amp can ever be!

This is expected since they used a good board for this amp, its the same board thats used in an audioque/soundqubed 2200 and American Bass vfl 120.1 which are amps costing much more than these.

From what i've seen inside the amp, its very well built and its very durable, i've taken it out for a road trip and had 3 hours of full tilt bass and the amp barely got warm, the heat sink works very well. maxxsonics actually did something right for once. I might even grab another one in the future and strap em.

Only thing i hate about hifonics amps is that the ground and power wire input terminals are always slanting down, nothing big, just a pet peeve. Would like it to point straight out and the amp doesnt look very stylish.

April 14, 2014

Ive been using this amp at 1ohm tuned with a DD-1 with dual batteries for only 3 months and it worked great! but recently it started going into protection at certain volumes. it lasted like this for 2 days. now its only in protection all the time. i know what i'm doing, Ive checked all connections, voltage is good, subs are good. this same exact thing happened with my Rockford Fosgate power T1000.1bdcp, but after 3 years, so that's understandable.
before i bought this BRX24000.1D i read all the reviews, i watched an amp dyno video from SMD. so... I purchased it. but would i recommend it? yes. if its all you can afford, get it.

brutus brx 2400.1d decent value

October 12, 2014

Hifonics Brutus brx2400.1d in my opinion its a good amp if u just like to be loud. One thing that a lot of people said which I've seen to believe is that u must have a good power supply for this amp. Slamming it with insufficient power makes it hot. It looks good but too much illumination for me once powered on. not sure but love super low bass n I'm not gettin that with this amp. The first one I ordered went up in smoke. Called sonic told them bout the amp n they told me just send it back and in no time had another replacement thanks to sonic. So if ur just lookin for a not to expensive amp to play loud then that's a decent choice but remember its power hungry

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.

This is going to sound silly, but try to follow me here;
This amp provides two outputs but they are NOT two "channels". The amp is a Monoblock, so you are to assume the outputs come together within. So, if you were to wire a Dual-4ohm sub, in parallel, to one side, then a second matching Dual-4ohm sub, in parallel, to the other, your final load will be 1ohm, because THE OUTPUTS COME TOGETHER WITHIN the amp. If this is all too much to take in, simply use One Positive (+) and One Negative (-), it is the same exact connection. [NO ONE WAY IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER. YOU WILL NOT MAGICALLY GET MORE POWER BY DOING ONE OVER THE OTHER. IT IS LITERALLY THE SAME THING]

The BRX2400.1D is simply set up like a 'pro car audio amp'. Here are a few examples of other proper Monoblocks with the same configuration:

Can anyone tell me if theses amps produce a bit more than rated or just what they say?

Best Answer: I have this amp installed in my Mazda 3 with a second battery about 2 feet from the amount connected by as short run of 0000 AWG wire.

I have 2 Sundown audio SA-10D4 wired such that the amps sees a 1 ohm load. The amount is unquestionably powerful, but unfortunately I do not have the test equipment required to test if the amp exceeds the rated power. I suspect it puts out the rated power but does not exceed it

got my brx2400.1 install first day to a american bass hd15d2 wired to 1 ohm and after a few minutes the amo started smoking. i switched of an started again after a few minutes it started smoking again. it has enough current around 14.5V...after that it played a lil while and the whole amp jus smoked up. i took it to a technician and he said the mosfets were blown an a capacitor burst. what could possibly cause that?

Best Answer: So as you may see the amp is huge it's just physically big.. So my first question would be what
Cable did you use when you installed it?
A high quality 1/0 is required like stinger or xs powe
Or jl audio ... Even fosgate ..only reason I say that is
If your amp draws power from the alternator and or battery and there is resistance from too small of cable or copper clad aluminum which is the worst it will major over heating.. And make all sorts of things happen. So in short cable is important
I would then say what kind of alternator do you have... Because honestly it would take two 200a alternators to power this amp because of its efficiency .. Which is around 65%. When you do the math your amp will draw lots of current in order to produce the 2400 watts..
Then the last thing is your batteries.. Which kind you got and how many. Two xs power batteries would be perfect.. The thing here in this whole answer is you have to feed the amp its power before it makes its power efficiently meaning the amp doesn't get hot and start damaging its self and things around.. An Effiecently running amp will be realtively cool ... If after you read my answer you say hey no. I have good 1/0 and a great high output alternator and
Good high quality batteries then it could just be a defective amp... Power in car audio is like this in order to run bigger systems you have to have an abundance of power available if it's not available it becomes heat which can cause problems in your alternator.. Or components of your stereo. Or if the cable is not the proper size or quality it will cause resistance as I mentioned earlier. Which will become heat.

Best Answer: The brz 2400 is to powerful for the subs your looking at, the subs are 600watts rms each that's 1200watts rms total. the brz2400.1 is 2400rms rms. That's 2times the amount the subs need to move. Your looking for a 1200.1 amp. Your subs wire 1ohm or 4ohm. If you wire the subs to 1ohm and get a 1200.1(RMS) amp you'll be fine. Or if you wire the subs to 4ohm and get the brz2400.1 you'll be fine. (The second option is a waste of money).

Can someone tell me if this amp is good or bad for 2 12 kicker L7 4ohm each!??
I'm new to this lol!

Best Answer: Hello,

Welcome to Car Audio. First, it is always important to provide MODEL NUMBERS, NOT descriptions. Here it isn't such a big deal, but there is no such thing as a "12 kicker L7 4ohm" ; there is , however, a DUAL-4ohm . Moreover, you are likely referring to the Kicker Solo-Baric 11S12L74 (S12L74) (or maybe the 08 version, but that doesn't matter much either) . Nevertheless, model numbers are important, because they give absolute Facts, where descriptions give assumptions.

To your question, the Hifonics BRX2400.1D is WAY more amp than you need. Two Kicker 11S12L74 are only asking for ~1500w RMS @1ohm , when wired in parallel. The Hifonics will give you 2400w RMS @1ohm. So instead, consider the Hifonics BRX1516.1D, because it gives you the perfect match.

Best Answer: hi there, im lee from united kingdom, I recently purchased a this soundstream amp ta1.2000d to power my 2 pioneer tsw 3002d4's 1000w rms spl subs, this amp kicks , sound quality is superb for a class d, its power hungary so make sure you run 0 gauge ofc or cca to it, but the inputs for power nd ground on the amp are very small,i had to buy knukonceptz 0 to 4 gauge reducers so I could give the amp more current but I even had to grind the reducers down a bit for them to fit.....I have a 150amp stock altenator with a optima yellow top battery running all knukonceptz 0 gauge ofc wire and it hits hard, I would defo recommend this amp for these subs,its sleak looking and does the job.if you can supply it with a good electrical system it WILL deliver.be carefull on the gains it can distort your subs.i also upgraded my wire to the subs too. hope this helped you out a bit.
