Have you confirmed that you have a good signal feeding the amp?

Have you confirmed that the speakers are in good working order and don't have any breaks in the wiring?

I have 2 Pioneer TS-W3002D4 12 In and a Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D D-Class Mono Block what's the best wiring


you need to wire each sub down to 2ohms then wire them together like the one in this pic http://m.seimg.net/product/img/subwoofer_wiring/2_subs_DVC_4_ohm_mono_variation2.jpg witch will give you 1ohm so you will be getting every bit of power that amp has but you should get a bigger amp for thos speakers

I have 2 12 inch jl audio w7's with a kicker crossover and a powerbass equalizer 5 bands. i wanted to know if add a hifonics brutus 2100 d class amp to my subs at 1 ohm would it over power my subs. please...


Short answer: NOPE!

The Hifonics Brutus 2100 is stated to produce 2100 watts RMS @ 1ohm load. Most amplifier manufacturers overstate their claims. The 2100 watt output is most likely at 14.4 volts and not the 12.6 volts your car will actually be providing the amp.

But, even if the actual output was 2100 watts that would be 1050 watts to each 12w7. The 12w7's are rated at 1000watts RMS and 2000watts peak. As a MECP certified installer, any system I have done using 12w7's have had a MINIMUM of 1000 watts being provided to each speaker. My personal preference is to run 1500 watts each and keep the gains adjusted lower on the amp. Thus allowing the amp to run cooler and allow the additional headroom for those "show-off" moments!

I have a 2000 watt hifonics brutus amp ...it worked fine but 1 day it just stopped working..the power light doest light up but the hifonics led lights are still on...whats the problem?


there is a step up converter inside the amp that likes to come loose from the board. This may be your problem. Otherwise Check all the chips for burns or disconnect

2 4ohm dvc subs to a bxi 608 ( 600watt mono)


take the positive on the sub and run a wire to the other positive the run a negative to the other negative then to your pos and neg on the box do the same on the other side then tie your two positives and two neg together and you got 1ohm and that amp willl handle it all day

Amp does not work


make sure your power and ground wires are 4 gauge thats a big power puller also make sure your wires to woofers are correct!and you want a short ground wire and a good spot for it no paint!!
if there out of phase that will shut it off BUT you might be needing a battery cap. MORE POWER!!!!they dont cost much
and save your battery and alt.hifonics is a good choice my favorite are the series 7 they dont make them like that anymore!
hope this helps one more thing your alt.how many amps is it?
my honda is only 60 amps your brutus pulls that all day !
(BATT.CAP.or HAVE ALT.WRAPED for more power.
