  • XS Power XP750-CK:
    • The XS Power XP750-CK is designed for the enthusiast that needs a proper power reserve, that cannot be had with a capacitor. It is intended for 1000-1500 Watt Audio Systems. We are well aware that the Hifonics BRX2000.1D is capable of up to 2000 watts of Dynamic Power, but unless you are competing Every day of your amplifier's life then you likely are only using ~half that power at any given time.
  • Big 3 Upgrade Kits:
    • To get the most out of your new power system check out our Big Three Upgrade Kits. Performing the "Big 3" upgrade to your vehicle will improve the performance of your electrical system and increase its current handling capabilities. This decrease in resistance will reduce light dimming, reduce voltage drops, stabilize voltage and current flow, and decrease the strain being put on your vehicle’s electrical charging system.

No. The amp is far too much power (1400w RMS @ 2ohms) . The better match would be the Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12 wired up to 4ohms.

Will this amp be ok powering dual 12in kicker compRs? The subs are rated at 1600 watts rms @ 2 ohms and are in a ported box. I know clipping can be caused by under powering a sub, but does 200 watts really matter?

Best Answer: Hello Liam,

In THIS particular case, the ~200w difference is Not a bit concern. However, it is VERY important that you do not push the system beyond its limits. THAT is where "underpowering" is a problem. You risk SENDING a clipping signal if you overdrive the amp and/or do not have tuned properly. Setting the Gain "Half Way" is not a proper setting, so please do your homework on this or have a professional tune the amp.

will this amp handle straight 0 gauge wire to the postive/ground?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,It really depends on the manufacture of the wiring you are referring to. MOST "premium" manufactures' 0 Gauge wire [i.e. Kicker, NVX, etc..] may not fit well without shaving away some wiring. This , of course, isn't ideal because you want as many strands as possible. So, most of our customers include a pair of Stinger SPT521 1/0 Gauge Input to 4 Gauge Pin Adapter.

Which gauge wire kit should be used for this amp as well as which gauge speaker wire should be used for SWR 12d2 subs?
Robert Tyne M on Oct 22, 2015
Best Answer: I use 0 gauge with a 1/0 to 4 gauge step down adapter to fit into the amp. May be a bit overkill but I'd rather be on the safe side. I use 12 gauge speaker wire, ended up blowing a hole through the cone of one of my alpine 12d4s the other day from the power I was getting paired with a d5100 battery and 125 amp altetnator

This will be a mouthful...
I currently have 4 gauge wire (CCA) and its true 4 gauge; I have two running from the battery to a distribution block. Each wire is fused with a 60Amp AGU fuse about a foot away max from the battery. I read reviews saying this amp requires a lot of power therefore I was wondering if I will be fine just combing two of the 4 gauge power wire from the distribution block with a 0000 gauge connector and having the other end have about 5-6 inches of wire (0-4 gauge OFC) to the amp (I just assumed that's not a good idea given shifts in current flow however, my optimistic mindset got the best of me) . I plan on upgrading to 0 gauge (CCA) wire however for the time being is this fine or should I just run one 4 gauge wire to the amp; or should I just wait for my cable upgrade (which will be 3 weeks after amp arrives...)? I will be powering two Alpine Type Rs SWR T12 subs at 2 ohms. (The BRX2000.1d will be the only amp connected to the car everything is stock on the vehicle and the battery is in the trunk so power wire is shorter in length if that helps.

Best Answer: That's kind of funny u said 4ga. I did it at first trying to save alittle money & I burnt my true 4ga. After a few weeks, so I now have a true 1/0ga. & let me tell u, u can tell the difference big time! This amp is a monster I have it running 2-12" NVX VCW's D4's at 1ohm in a 1.8 cubic ft ported box tuned @ 34 hz & it is SUPER SUPER LOUD! Everyone thinks I have 15's or even 18's, I also have the matching 4 Channel the BRX640.4 running a pr. NVX 6x9's & a pr.NVX 6.5's & it is crystal clear! Don't waste your time with a 4ga. U will be disappointed n the end just do right the first time TRUST ME, these are some [email protected] amps!! Any more questions let me know, been installing for 20+yrs, also Sonic is the way to go... Hope this helps...

I have a 4 gauge amp kit installed from a previous set up, everyone tells me it's in my best interest to upgrade it to 1/0 gauge. Is the difference just the power and ground wires or do I need to replace the entire kit?

Best Answer: Just the power and ground wire. I'm using kicker 4 gauge power wire and ground wire with my BRX2000.1D and it works great but it's thick and high quality wire. If your using cheap wire you might need 0 gauge or go with kicker 4 gauge it's amazing wire and very flexible.

I am running this amp to power 2 Sundown Sa-12's. My question is, what size inline fuse do I need to run from the battery to the capacitor? Thank you.
Frankie M on Feb 3, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Frankie,

For future inquiries, it is wise to provide proper model numbers, instead of a description like "2 Sundown Sa-12's" . We assume you are referring to the SA-12 D2, because it makes the most sense, but if its the other configuration then that may dramatically change the responses from people. Assuming the SA12 D2 wired in Series/Parallel, then we also suggest a 200A Fuse.

Best Answer: Also, with the car revving thing the guy said above, it's not like that, that be like, I could set the max to 8,000 rpm to get maximum power when I need it, or I could set a governor at 6,000 so I'll never really be able to use the full potential. Just because you wire it to be able to push a 1,000 watts each, doesn't mean you're driving around with the stereo cranked. Which is just a bad idea. The belva is probably overrated anyway

Can I connect my 4 car speakers and 2 subwoofers to this amp?
Lorenzo F on Nov 25, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Lorenzo,

Absolutely not. The Hifonics BRX2000.1D is intended to drive subwoofers Only. The number of subwoofers is unlimited, but that does NOT include full-range speakers. We suggest a 5-Channel amplifier, these types of amplifiers are intended for exactly what you wish to do. Give our sales team a call to help you match one with the equipment you already have.

Best Answer: Hello Robert,

Depending on your setup - specifically, what the enclosure gives you - there are two options to wiring up this setup. NEITHER is "better" than the other , NEITHER is going to give you the "most bang for your buck" and NEITHER is more "right" than the other. They are the exact same wiring configuration, just two different methods of getting the same results, 2ohms.

The easiest options is the following:

If you are able to perform this option, do it. It will avoid any further confusion. Keep in mind, the outputs on your amplifier are only there to make the installation easier; that Doesn't mean they ALL need to be taken up..which leads me to the next option:

This option if for If your box has two separate chambers and two separate terminals. PLEASE IGNOR THE NUMBERS IN THE PICTURE!!!! ESPECIALLY THE "4OHM" PART. The picture is just to show you the wiring, disregard the impedance.

In the end, both of these options will provide a 2ohm final load at the amplifier, like the setup was intended.

Best Answer: Hello Michael,

You simply wire the subwoofer in Parallel. The 'tentacle' configuration of the subwoofer does not change how you are meant to wire the setup. Bring the Positive (+) wires together, then the Negative (-) wires together, lead each individual 'bundle' to the enclosure, and from the enclosure to its matching polarity. It does NOT matter which output(s) you choose, because the amp is STILL a monoblock, which implies that the connections come together within.

IS IT SAFE TO RUN THIS THIS WITH TWO Audiopipe TXX-BD2-12 wire at 1 ohm final empedance. at 1500 wattz at 2?
jhay1423 on Jan 26, 2016
Best Answer: -IS IT SAFE TO RUN THIS THIS WITH TWO Audiopipe TXX-BD2-12 wire at 1 ohm final empedance.

Yes. You will have the capability of overpowering the setup by 500watts/250watts each, so we stress that you practice restraint when really opening up the power. A proper tune is necessary.

-at 1500 wattz at 2?

We aren't sure what you're asking here.

Justin S on Nov 2, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Justin,

Yes ; you will likely be getting ~1000w RMS from the amp @ 3ohms. This does tip-toe right along what JL Audio calls the 'Danger Zone', so please make sure you do everything within your power to provide a CLEAN signal and proper power/ground to the amp to obtain that.
