Brutus Amplifiers

The newly designed Hifonics Brutus amplifiers are the most efficient and comprehensive Super D-Class series ever. With the new vertical fin heat-sink design these amplifiers have better heat dissipation and therefore run more efficient resulting in less impact on a cars battery and charging system than many other amps available today. Translated into cost, that’s more wattage output with less battery current used, equaling more watts per dollar. The Brutus amps are 1-Ohm stable and range in power from 1200wrms to 3000wrms.



XR-5S Reference Fit

Great things come in small packages and if you’re in need of proof look no further than the 5-channel Kenwood eXcelon XR-5S “Reference Fit” amplifier. The amplifier features one of the smallest footprints in its class, making it the perfect solution for vehicle installations where space is at a premium. Engineered to provide performance and reliability the XR-5S utilizes digital amplifier technology to deliver a walloping 1,200W (80W x 4 + 350W x 1) of power. Other features include Low and High Pass Filters, Cooling Fan and Dual Sigma Drive.
