DD Z1 vs. Z1a vs. Cactus 5kw or any other big amp

Ok so I mainly am interested to know if anyone has tried the Z1a and compared it in SPL output to the Z1 or the cactus 5kw or any other big amps? I am just trying to figure out which should be the next amp I buy but I want to make a wise decision

cactus was 23 db's louder than pyramid 50.2 but the bazooka tube was almost as loud as a z1 when you throw both off of a 3rd floor balcony and listen to them smash. z1 was a tad louder tho cuz it fell on a roof of a car and broke its windshiled.

we tried a z1a and it sinks as fast as a brick when you throw them both into a pool. this test was done at room temperature. i think the results might vary if the pool was frozen.
