 Hifonics VIII Zeus

I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of a HiFonics VIII Zeus running at 2 ohm mono??? I was thinking it might be able to be burped at 2 ohm mono but not stable for general listening. I know these amps were amazing for there time and underrated. But I think this guy is full of crap to claim his amp does 2000watts at 2 ohm mono. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Nathan

You are referring to the one on Ebay? I assume....If I owned the amp I would never even attempt it. That dumbass needs to give me that amp so it can be used correctly.

I've seen two different people try saying this on ebay. And they were two different amps. One had the tails and the other had the plug for power/ground. I have the owners manual for the entire series VIII. I even ask if it was upgraded by Steve Mantz and the guy replied to my question by calling me a nazi or something. lol I knew I wasn't wrong, just wanted other opions. Thanks again

I know the early run of the series VIII had faulty plugs. A lot of people hard wired them to the board.

Actually, I don't think it's THAT far from the truth. 2000? Probably not, but 1500? Very possible IMO.

I mean -- it's rated for 450x2 at 2 right, and it will probably do well over 500x2 so I don't think 750-800 x 2 (or even more) is unreasonable to expect at 1 ohm stereo.
Of course I'd never risk it with a classic like that especially considering there are good class D's for ~$300 that will do it comfortably using a lot less current.

There was a respected member on CA a few years ago that swore he measured the Opti200.2 at 1000w+ at 2 ohms bridged. It's rated for 380 @ 4
