Default Brazilian amps Which one?

Well I have done some reading about these Brazilian amps and seem to like what I am reading.

From what I have gathered, having some extra batteries, good wire, will do you fine for about 3k worth of amp.

So as long as you stay under 15v. (I am not planning on boosting my voltage) And dont drop under about 11.5 - 12v you will be fine?

Also how many different manufactures are there of Brazilian amps?

PRV, Stetsom, Taramps? what are some others? or which are better or worse? Are there any to absolutely stay away from?

I read most of the info I can find on these amps and am looking to push 2 each of the FU 750's 18" dual 4ohm subs. In a S10 extended cab. By the way got the first sub in for testing and so far I like what I see.

Do you guys think the Taramps 3k would be enough?

Taramp HD3000-1
https://www.amazon.com/Taramp-HD3000.../dp/B00FGULS78

I like the idea of keeping the amp turned down and using the clip light indicator in case of my miss use.

Or would the 5k be a better option for me?

Tfade you seem to have a lot of experience with these if you could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

or get this one and just keep the gain way way down 8k

Alphard Sound seems to be a Russian Company from what I can tell. Looks like we have a Miami dist. Probably a front for the Russian mob.k just kidding. Map looks to be a little pricey on some stuff but good on others.

@Jerrytbr look on Alphard sound fb page you'll find the Brazilian line and plenty reviews of their equipment. So far I've heard nothing but great things from them.

Overpriced sound digital rebadge thats all it is. Its made by sound digital same design, just priced a lot higher because Alphard. Might as well buy a sound digital amp and get a better warranty.

They work fine, just overpriced for what you get. Still decent quality like every other rebadge company out there. Their subs are chinese, their korean amps are fine, only half ohm stable not quarter ohm stable. They put out just like any other rebadge company out there, my buddy is an alphard dealer, he ran the 7500.1, two 12ks and now switching over to two of the brazilian 11.8ks soon when they release.



As for brazilians, I've accidentally ran my two hd 15ks at 10.3 volts for over 3 hours at a show once. Amps only got warm, subs were ice cold, Not at full amp potential but still... The new lines are beasts. My ampere TFE would have thermal'd and protected within 5 minutes under those conditions.

Last show I went to everyone that had TFE and TFHE amps last year all sold them because they would just over heat. Lots of failures on them also. One guy there had a taramps 15k and was running it truck off on 5 battiers and demod for hours, he would turn his trunk on for maybe 2 mins and charge batts for 2 mins then turn it off and start banging again. His voltage was in the 11v range and the amp was just warm, not hot. Was running 4 zv5 15s and they were hammering.

I've been convinced to switch over to Taramps from korean because of how they perform. And at such a great price for the power its hard to beat. Would recommend 10/10, and they are only getting better with newer technology

Just watch amazon with taramp's. i have had a hand full of amps come in that were repaired and sold to customers as new. The repair work was not up to taramp's quality.... But as for taramp's , my customers love them... And i have had no issues with any of there amps. Three rules with them. Never Mount amp to enclosure. Make sure you have the electric to back it and never run amp below rated ohm load.

All the taramps I see are mounted to enclosures
Shizzon told me the hd 15k is fine to run at .66ohm daily which is under the rated 1ohm min..
Shizzon also said just don't clip full tilt 14.4v+ because the amp will blow.
