Kaption Audio ????

I Heard that Kaption Amps have the same internal board/components as a company called Impact Audio... Is This True?

I can't say for sure, since I haven't seen the internals on the kaptions, but if you check on ampguts (at realmofexcursion.com), the Impact model names, numbers and appearance are strikingly similar to kaption's, if not identical... for example, they both make an HC-250.2 with same power ratings, and each have an 80.2 as well.

I have no idea... I've never tried Kaption stuff but I know a few people on the forum own it or have in the past.

Strange that I know of a Mike Neufeld or two from the Lower Mainland area.

I thought Kaption was okay, but that's only from a component set I saw in use. There's a dealer out here in Chilliwack that carries them. Screw the 80.2, the HC250.2 looks hot for a set of components.

So......blue collar, you say you had three spl 1200's? Dual 2? Dual 4? Any question that they may have been wired to a final impedance lower than 2 ohm mono? 3 subs is an oddball setup for that amp. Just wanting to make sure you have a safe final impedance on that problematic system of yours.
