Both amplifiers will put out rated Power under stated conditions.

I know that MX1 in MECA was won with the Crunch amps.

I have heard the crunch amp can do close to its rated like around 1200 watts which isn't bad for the price tag it has..

did know that the Crunch amp was only 800wrms, i would definitly go with the hifonics then.
and corey what did you bench the amp at? i believe the amp was CES certified and its rated at 14.4 volts. so at 14.4 volts it should put out atleast 1080watts...

I have clamped just about all of the Hifonics amps and it does rated Power at advertised conditions.
I was just wondering what your numbers were when you clamped it. Not wattage but the raw data you used to get your output numbers

As for the Crunch Crunch Test results

i may look into this amp instead of a hifonics due to price, and people seem to have good results with it.
