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.

i have a 0 gauge wire running from the battery to a fused distribution block is it ok that the output of the distribution block is 4 gauge is it ok to be 4 gauge for this amp?
pollo on Apr 19, 2016
Best Answer: It's ok if that's all you have but honestly you are better off running a 2 or 0 guage wire , using a 4 guage wont give you the power that you can get out of it and is kind of wasteful but like I said if you don't have money to spend its fine for now but I recommend upgrading the wire

Best Answer: As far as the box goes, it more than fits the needs of what I'm using it for. I have two Rockford P3D2 subs in it and it has an incredible sound. Mine is in the back of a Vibe (sport wagon) and it'll vibrate the whole car. I do not know how it'll do in a trunk but I still believe you won't be disappointed.

Why dose this amp have 2 channels but it's a monoblock?
Mar dawg on Aug 26, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Mario,

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 I use 4 gauge wire for this amp?
xavier t on Apr 1, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Xavier,

As specified in the description: "1/0-gauge OFC power and ground wiring is highly recommended for installation, if running amplifier at 2ohms or 1ohm. Contact us for information regarding a discount on select amplifier kits when purchased together with this amplifier."

We have to stick with this recommendation. 2ohms MIGHT run fine with a proper run of True Spec OFC 4 Gauge power/ground , but you will likely still get a natural decrease in overall power output, because you are - after all - throttling the power the amplifier is trying to take in.

Can anyone tell me if theses amps produce a bit more than rated or just what they say?
Damian R on Dec 9, 2014
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

I plan on purchasing one 15" Kicker CVX dual 4-ohm, will this be enough to power it without any clipping and distortion? I also want to get an auxiliary battery to run it to.
A shopper on Aug 9, 2016
Best Answer: This amp has enough juice to more than oush 2 of those subs. If wanting to run a single 15 i would puck a sub that has either dual 4ohm with rms rating of at least 1500 wats or dual 2ohm with min rms rating of 2000 watts

I bought two subwoofers HDS215 Dual 4 / RMS Power 600W and Peak Power 1200W for each one.

I have two questions?

Do you recommend me to buy Hifonics Brutus BRX2400.1D?

Should I buy another new Amp for speakers because I am going to buy four Kenwood KEN-KFC6994PS ? it has 500 watts peak power total 2000 watts


A shopper on Nov 7, 2016
Best Answer: What I'm seeing is that you are going off the peak power but you want to go off of RMS power. The amp you bought is very powerful you'll be safe running your speakers in series. If you wire it any other way you risk the chance of blowing the speakers I personally would go with the Hifonics BRX1516.1D and run the speakers parallel. Its a more appropriate amp for the speakers RMS power and more bang for your buck.

For your second question, those are very nice speakers. If you want to run those with an amplifier I would get a four channel amp. If it was my system I would go with the Brutus BRX1200.4, Because those speakers are at 125 watts RMS at 4 ohm. Thanks for the question. Gerald GCI.electronics

Best Answer: Raul,

We do not carry Hifonics parts and accessories. If it is not found in the accessories tab, then unfortunately we do not have access to the given accessory. We suggest contacting Hifonics Tech Support, who may possibly have a lead for you. . Alternatively, you can always consider a Universal Remote Gain Control, like the NVX XBRC.

If I wire in 1 Ohm will this amplifier push 1000 watts a piece to 2 12" Type R's? If so is this a good idea and will it slam? I am currently pushing 2 12" rockford fostgates at 260w a piece and am severely unhappy with the lack of "bump". My highs over power the bass right now. I have an Alpine 4 ch amp pushing 4 rockford fostgage speakers that sound great but need more bass.

Alpine SWR-12D4
Alpine SWR-12D4
Best Answer: Hello,

You were rather vague in your inquiry, but we thing we can assume a few things.

Two Alpine SWR-12D4 wired in parallel to a 1ohm load, will get the 1ohm rating of the amplifier, and that power Will be split among the two subwoofers. So, yes, ~1000w per subwoofer.

Is it "a good idea"? We certainly don't think so, considering the Recommend power range is 250 - 750 watts RMS. "Will it slam"? That is a subjective question that we can't answer, but we can say 1500w+ is pretty big power numbers and considered "well above modest".

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?
kyle h on Mar 13, 2015
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 power
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!
A shopper on Mar 20, 2015
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.
