Default Big Amp Comparison

So i have been looking at all the big amps available recently and I continue to go back and forth between companies. What it lead down to in my decision is to look at gut shots. Well I found it hard to find gut shots and to compare them side by side, so I did a fast throw together of several big amps, Im sure Im not the only one wanting to compare these. Figured if anyone else is wanting to see the difference between them this will work well.

Note not all the amps are the same dimensions I simply did that for picture purposes.

Im sure some of you will find it interesting how close some of these to one another.

I rearranged them by 'matching amps', added the NS1 and removed the DD Z2lv and the Cactus 7k.




Note: the DC 10k is missing four Capacitors compared to the AQ 20k. {the DC 10k has the same Audio board as the DC9k}

If the Crossifre 8k and AB 1100.1 look 98% identical, what makes them put out different power? I've never seen a trust side by side like this and it's crazy how they truly are the same internally

Maybe db-r can chime in on this question for me.


Why are some of the coils different colors? I mean we all know that most of those amps are pretty close to the same. I saw a different color coil on one.

just taking a stab at it, but if by coil you mean toroid/transformer, i believe the variation in color is just due to the different dielectric or urethane coatings available they use for insulating properties on the windings, much like voice coil wire.

i also believe they use different colors to indicate which leg is which, but im no expert by any means on amp repai or production.
