    that hifonics is very unique it has digital input which is not very common on an amp. I was thinking about getting it but I still havent decided yet. Hifonics is a good reliable company. Some people do have heating problems but most do not.

    I have a Hifonics Zeus 5.1 mounted somewhat upside down on my back seat and it's been working beautifully for the past year and a half. Sure, it goes into protection when you have stuff hooked up wrong, but that's what the protection is for! My PC always overheats before my AMP does in the sometimes 100 degree weather in Charleston, SC. Maybe I got lucky, but I've been nothing but happy with my Hifonics AMP.
