I'm looking into equipment for once i get the blazer, and get started on the stereo...

I use RF amps currently, and haven't had a lick of trouble with them...but im loooking at trying something new...

I've heard various good things about the DEI amps, what are you guy's opinions on them?

I found the hifonics amps online for really cheap prices, and that worries me....

I'm looking at the DEI 2400 for component amp (NOT the 2400d, just the regular two channel 2400), and the DEI 1100d for a sub amp...

let me know your opinions

i had a hifonics brutus bx1500d ...it worked beautifully...no problems with it..well nothin that was the amps fault..i dont have it now cuz I clipped it majorly..it was my mistake that made it croak..it handles good tho...you'll love it..trust me..
oh imma get a DEI Viper d1200.1 ..i've read a couple of reviews...one said that they test 2 of them..and they daisy chained them..they squeezed out just a little under 4000w out of them..and they're rated to put out only 1200w....so yea..plus i went to ALOT of the shops on this island..and they all knew about the viper amps..i've heard nothing but good things..besides the prices..even the shops that didnt carry them said good things..basically all the bad stuff i heard was just about the price...imma get my 1200 for 325 tho..so no problem there :D good luck..hope this helps!

I would assume the insides are the same on the viper 1200.1 and the dei 1100d.....same exact company after all ;)

You can find either amp for around $350 shipped on ebay....

i want a pair of amps that will match, for the subs and for the components :)

ur finding alot of it online cheap because its all refurbished, hifonics had their badass return policy which came back to bite em and now u see alot of "b stock" amps, which their isnt n e thing really wrong with them except u have no warranty which for hifonics isnt really a big deal cuz their good stuff.but still...no warranty.but n e who thats why ur findin it so cheap, its still good product though

hell no. on ikesound its like $350, and im having a hell of a hard time getting my parents to get it for me for christmas. maybe youre thinking of the 1000D? its only like $225 on ike, but just because it doesnt cost a lot doesnt mean its not good (Resonant Engineering and Elemental Designs subs are pretty damn cheap and that kick MAJOR ass)
