Has anybody heard of the lanzar vibe286? It says it puts out 2 x 1000W RMS at 4 OHMS 2 x 2000W MAX at 4 OHMS 1 x 4000W MAX at 4 OHMS Bridged 2 x 1650W at 2 OHMS RMS. People say that lanzar vibe series of amps are good. About how many REAL watts would this amp be putting out? Should i trust getting it? Thanx.
All I know for sure is that the 268 benchtested at a little over 900w bridged -- it uses a pair of 30A fuses. The 266 has 2 20's, 276 looks like a pair of 25's, the 286 is hard to tell - I've got to assume a pair of 30's, so I don't think it would be realistic to expect as much as 1000w rms out of it.
hey man i disagree with that, some models are good, i own lanzar vibe 1800d and is a great amp for only 140$. Where in the world are you going to find 1200 at that cost, so you better think a little moment
Juliob where did u get ur amp from? % wise about how much is lanzar overrated? Thanx. Rovin i wanna power 2 12" cvrs. What would be the best cuft for a ported enclosure for each Kicker? Or what to tune it to? Thanx guys. All i got is $180 for now. I just need something with more power than my PA amp(980 watts). Im not working so i dont got money, but im 16 so ill get a job hopefully when i get my provisional(at the end of the year) then i could spend my money on sum real sh!t.
what about the PA TS1920-2 Plasma Sphere 2-Channel Amplifier? How many real watts would it put out? Would you get it as a good budget amp? It should be about twice as powerful as the 1 i have now right? Ne1 now any amps for $180 with shipping that has more power than my PA amp now?? Thanx....
it's not a bad deal for that price that amount of power, if you're going to power some 600w rms subs you can buy vibe 1800d/1200d, but if you want to power some little subs, then you can use that amp, remember is not a class D amp
I dont think you can really tell about how much rms an amp has by just looking at the fuses cuz on my PA 980watt max amp it has 4 25A fuses and its only rated at 560 rms bridged so howz the lanzar 268 with 2 30A fuses with more power? Im not sayin ur wrong cuz i really dont know but how can sum1 tell by looking at the fuses? Thanx.
You can tell if an amp is overratted by looking at the fuse size. The fuse size is the maximum amount of current allocated to the amp. You can figure power by multiplying current times voltage. 13.8 volts time 30 amps is 414 watts. This is the maximum amount of power that the amp could produce if it was 100% efficient. Amps loose power to heat and etc. A class D monoblock is aroung 75% efficient and a class A/B is around 60% i think. So for a monoblock you could figure 414 watts times 75% efficiency gives you 310 watts. This is a more realistic number than the original 414 watts. So for your amp with 2 30A fuses you would get aroung 620 watts. This is only to figure the maximum that the amplifier can produce. So if get an amplifier that says it can produce 1000 watts and only has a 60A fuse then you know its a lie.
Plus the amp that your talking about appears to be a class A/B. So yeah there is NO WAY that amp could produce 2000 watts, 1000 watts, or in my opinion even 500 watts. I think you would get around 400 watts from that amp. Lanzar sucks man there are better budget amps that won't rip you off.
let's bet that the vibe 268 can really put more than 850w if that's what you're arguing, and if you want 1000+ for only 180$ buy lanzar vibe 1800d or heritage 2600d, i bought it at 140$ and is 1200w rms, so lanzar is not really bad, they just overrate some of their products for marketing, luca got wrong in that. You can calculate with fuses, yeah, but that doesn't applies to everything you see. You can see a volfenhag using 2x40A fuses and it only reaches like 700 watts, so you figure it out. There are several amps that use a lot of fuses and doesn't do what you think, but there are others that yeah, you can tell if they're overrated or not
...so howz the lanzar 268 with 2 30A fuses with more power?
TJ - an ATC fuse can pass much more current than what it's rated at. To blow those fuses instantly it would take 120A or more. It would pass 100A for several seconds. 80A for several minutes, possibly hours. 60A almost indefinitely.
Every company's designs vary on how they apply fuses - which is why using fuse size to determine actual power output is a rough estimate at best.
I'm at work and i just paralleled two of these fuses togather on a 100 amp power supply and increased the current until they blew. They reached 68 amps before they blew. So I'm sorry I made a mistake that amp could put out 938.4 watts if it was 100% efficient.
So does the lanzar 268 really put out 900 rms or a little more? Can i use it to power 2 12" kicker 05 cvr's dual 2ohm? It should be a little more than twice as powerful as my PA 980 watt amp right? 14 volts i dont know about voltage or nothing but you said at 14 volts. I think my car battery is 12 volts so does that mean it wont put out the 900 watts rms?? Thanx
I wouldnt Mess With Lanzar, Altho guys are saying they put out somthing Doesnt Scratch out in my mind the fact that they are Grossly over rateing there amps in which is a horrible business practice an i would never advise anyone to buy them Due to the companys Business Ethics Alone
i don't have favorite brand, i just say that if i can get 1200w for only 140 bucks for real, it deserves some credit, so you're still a newbie you know, doesn't mean that if you buy some kicker amps you know more than others, man you should get banned really
Posted on Tuesday, April 11, 2006 - 08:11 pm: you don't know how the fuses works, even glasswolf had to explain it, and you're telling me newbie, men if you don't have too much time buy a book and study something _________________________________________
Posted on Tuesday, April 11, 2006 - 10:11 pm: Yeah, okay. Juliob what does your system consist of?
Sorry dude, it was past his bed time, guess you'll have to wait for an answer.
juliob - Just because your name starts with a J and is pronounced with an H doesn't mean that you can apply that same logic to other english words... jajajajaja.
