I am looking into getting a 15" Kicker L5 and was browsing around for a good amp and wanted some opinions on my choice. I know the kicker zx750.1 would work but while browsing around I stumbled upon a good match on the Hifonics website. the Hifonics TXi 1008D. I figured I would get the 2ohm version of the L5 and Wire it in parrallel for a 1 ohm final load. The Amp is 1 ohm stable, more powerful and a little cheaper than the kicker zx750.1 So my question is whether this is a good idea or not. And would I need a cap for this setup?
the kicker amp will put out more Power than the hifonics the hifonics puts out less than rated and kicker puts out more and also the kicker is a much better built amp and also never use a cap use an extra battery also 1/0 gauge wire
so the L5 has no sq?? I had a 15"CVR in my old vehicle powered by a zx400.1 in a sealed box and I thought it sounded pretty good. I know its an entirely diff. subwoofer, but an L5 is not THAT bad is it.
What r your guys thoughts on the brutus 1200, jd have you looked at the brutus amps I think the 1200 puts out 900 at 2ohm, that would push the L5 good and you would still have enough Power if you what to upgrade your sub(s) later.
subs:2 re se 15s
Box: slot ported
amp: fosgate T1000bd
Amp: fosgate 200
B2K is back together.....and there in the back of my yukan BUMP BUMP BUMP
I don't know for sure about the Titan series of hifonics amps, but if it's anything like the brutus series, they're not overrated, they're just rated at 14.4 vots, so it would obviously have a lower power rating at the 12.4 volts your car will feed it.
get whichever is cheaper. really, that kicker will put out a lil more than rated power but for the money you can't beat the hifonics as it will prolly be cheaper.

I too have to recommend the Kicker ZX750.1, great amp that does more than rated.
I installed this exact equipment in a buddies car and it sounds very nice, whomever said Kicker sounds bad probably wouldn't know true sound quality if it bit him on the ear!
After installing, my friend dropped by a local shop who sold him the parts but wanted to do the install too, and from what I heard he basically offered me a job after hearing it and then getting his own CD's to listen to it. I wasn't there, he just said whoever built the box did a really nice job.
And yes I think the sheet had the measured output at 930~ watts RMS. Great amp, especially in OEM situations because of the auto-sensing feature, there's no need for a remote wire.
