are you really trying to compare Arc to Brutus?....a MT olympus or MBquart Q series ...ok I could see that... but a brutus?... they are great value for the money but really? vs ARC????

well as I'm not a dealer, I'm kind of clueless on which one ranks higher...I used to be a big PowerAcoustik and Audiopipe fan!!

So if I replaced a HF Hfi 100.2 with an arc audio 2 channel amp, I'd definitely hear a big difference??

huge... ARC is expensive for a good reason....the hfi is a decent lower mid level amp... the zxi and bre are a ton better and the Q series and Mt Olympus are even better...

I would go with the brz, but after looking more closely at the frequency specs, the brz or zxi 2 channel don't produce that high frequencies... My hf 6.5" comps support up to 29k and the brz only goes up to about 15k. Yeah I know the human ear can only hear up to about 19k or so, but still...

You really need to re read the manual. The frequency range is 10-45 the HPF is 10-15k

you do understand that the hpf is where the freq starts at and goes up from right? that means if you set it at 10k it only plays from 10 up... as in 10k to 30k etc..

the zxi are 15 hz to 45 khz...may wanna read the manual lol and fwiw Daman ur opinion doesn't count....Arc will shit all over either amp.. and a zxi will assrape the crescendo in sq and actual power output...

for now I would concentrate on ur install like adding deadener where the flange touches the car. it makes a huge difference. then get better mids then get a better amp.

the hfi is a decent starter budget amp the zxi is much better but costs alot more... an ARC would make u pee urself lolz
