Default amp brands that do over rated power

What are some brands of some good solid amplifiers that do over rated power? I know majority of fosgate power series amps are underrated by at least 1k watts

Does it matter? I guess if you want to be in a certain class. I tell everyone to look at dollars per watts, over or under rated. Its easy for a co to get a 2000w amp, market it as 1500w and then everyone busts nuts over it

Clif Designs and Orion HCCA's are really underrated and are called cheater amps. Back in the old days of competitions competitors would use these cheater amps to get in lower watt classes and dominate. Now its a lot harder to get away with a cheater amp due to the easy calculator of amperage times ten. For example an amp of 400 watts rms at 4ohm with an amp rating of four forty amp fuses 40X4=160 160X10=1600 with an ohm drop of 1ohm per fuse. That's a grand total of 1600 watts at 1ohm. I personally have one of these amps for sale on here as we speak.

Its all a marketing gimmick anyways. Buy a 3k board amp and call it a 2k. Everyone says look at how much power it does.

But if it's priced at a 2k price then it's awesome and deserves praise. Otherwise just another amp with a low rating.
