Which amp is better?

Hi guys, I was just debating about these two amps. 1. orion hcca-d1200 or
2. Hifonics Brutus Bxi 606...

Both can run 600wrms @ 1 ohm which is what I need because I have 1 kaption spl 1200 dual 2 ohm and it is rated at 600wrms...I just need some professional advice because I'm not familiar with these amps...thanks!

Orion is the better one IMO

Here is another option and in my opinion a better option. The new Pioneer Premiere PRSD2000T, a 2 channel amp that makes 600w rms into 4 ohm. With a dual 2 ohm sub, this is also viable option as you can wire the sub in series to make a 4 ohm load. This load is going to draw less current from your alternator as compared to the 1 ohm load, end result is the same amount of power but less of a chance of the electrical system being drained and manifesting it's problems as the lights dimming with every beat.

orion is probably a better amp quailty wise, but the hifonics will give you good bang for the buck.

Depending on the price I would pipck the orion, even both amps are rated the same the orion will have more output. Orion underrates their amps, while Hifonics overrates. The older series of (like a 605) would only put out about 500 watts
