Power Specifications - Full Range Channels

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 speakers or subwoofers 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.

950 watts x 1 channels
RMS Power @ 2 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 speakers or subwoofers equals 2 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.

1600 watts x 1 channels
RMS Power @ 1 ohm

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 speakers or subwoofers equals 1 ohm, 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.

2200 watts x 1 channels
Peak Power Output
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.

2200 watts x 1 channels

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 X-14 (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 Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

2200 watts
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.

2200 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
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.
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.
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
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.
100A x 2 
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
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.
No

September 9, 2014

Hooked up to 2 sundown sa 15 d2 wired at 2 ohm and is pushing them good . 4 guage is for 1600 rms @ 2 ohm but would not run at 1 ohm with 4 guage. Good amp for $210.

I have this hooked up to two 12' NVX VCW 124s (850-1000 RMS). THEY POUND!!! I have them wired to 1 ohm, and the gain right around 4 volts to match my Alpine HD149BT deck. Amp doesn't get warm, and is easily pushing 1000 watts RMS to each sub. Waiting for my break in period to be done, and give them some more juice seeing that this amp can dish out A LOT of it...

Nice but overpriced...

June 9, 2014

I picked-up this amp after doing a lot of research online and reading all of the glowing reviews I decided to give this line a try. I have been installing audio electronics and equipment for well over 15 years now and look for value and performance. I have been using Planet Audio amps and like their value, performance and functionality. After getting this new Hifonics X2200.1D with 2200 Watts RMS I wired it into (2) NVX VCW 124s wired in parallel in a custom enclosure at 2 cubic feet per chamber. I was a little disappointed in that I could not hear any difference between it and my Planet Audio 2600.2 Anarchy Series 2-Channel Car Amplifier RMS Power Rating: 2 ohms: 900 watts x 2 chan. Bridged, 4 ohms: 1800 watts x 1 chan. Total Power Output: 2600 watts. Sonic also sells the Planet Audio amplifier line and would recommend it over the Hifonics line if your looking for performance, value, sound quality and over all functionality and some $ left in your wallet too. It's a really nice performing amplifier but just not worth the extra $$$ IMHO.

Comparable to planet audio 2600.2

May 13, 2014

Bought this amp due to its reputation and glowing reviews after many weeks of research to replace my working Planet Audio 2600x2 watt amp. I thought there would be some huge advantage or sound difference and quality but there really was not and mind you these are powering 2 NVX VCW124's in a labyrinth q-logic box with more than the recommended cubic feet displacement. Anyways I am rather disappointed that this amp cost so much more and offers no difference of sound quality in my opinion.

Gurranteed to Slap!

May 3, 2014

I recently just purchased this bad boy to throw more power at my Fi BL 18" and it did just what I thought it would do. I had borrowed my buddies older Brutus 1700.1d, and that still put out more power than the previous amp I had (sadly, SPL Gorilla 4500) so I proceeded to order a newer Hifonics. I noticed the new settings(had way more than the older model) and I just fell in love. I ordered this as fast as I could and the first day it arrived I already had it hooked up in my car and had been banging hard through town most the day. It sounded a lot cleaner and louder than it did before, and I must say I am very impressed with this amp. It will do the job for any subwoofer that can handle around 1700-2000w rms. Would recommend if you've been looking into a great amp without breaking the budget, I would say it performs as well as a Kicker amplifier, or better in some cases.

Is it OK with 4 awg power wire or it need a 0 awg power wire.?cause it get protected after 30 min on 4 awg wire without extra battery.
A shopper on Aug 8, 2014
Best Answer: I am using this same amp powering (2) NVX VCW124s with a positive 4 AWG cable running from the battery located at the front of my vehicle to the rear measuring about 20 feet total in length without any issues at all. I also am running an in-line 60 Amp glass round fuze too. Hifonics rep did mention he thought this was a bit on the small side regarding amperage and recommended an in line Blade type at 80 to 100 amps no more than 18 inches from the battery/power source. Be sure to get a super flexible type cable with the largest wire diameter inside of the rubber sheath, all power cables are NOT created equal! Be sure you are cooling your amp with a 12v high output fan too, if not the heat this beast generates will trip your amps protection circuit causing what your describing and very likely fry it if the protection circuit fails from excessive heat.

how is the sound quality of this amp compared to others? witch do you guys prefer x vs. brx? I noticed this amplifier has a lot better eq features and the hz gets as low as 30hz, as the brx line is 35hz and about the same normal eq.
Isaac T on Sep 17, 2014
Best Answer: Sound quality is above average. Honestly its hard to hear sound quality difference in an amp used only for subs. But if you have 0 guage wire, a decent alternator, and a decent battery this amp bangs! What I will tell u to do is to get a square trade warranty. You will not regret it. I bought a lower priced hifonics amp and it was dead on arrival. But I had the warranty and got all my money back and then bought this one. And this amp has nice features! Ive been abusing my for 12 months and its still working just like new. Just make sure you use and inline fuse.
