I have a kicker zx1000.1 true 1100 rms at 14.4 volts and have heard the fusion amp above...

Fusion is garbage. Even their boxes.
Kenwood isn't anything to write home about.
If your looking for a decent cheaper amp look into T.M.A. or MB Quart. I got my MB Quart for cheap, brand new in box for maybe 65$. Renagade isn't that bad either. I have a Renagade 1000 watt Mono (500 RMS) although I bet it doesn't even touch 500, but it sounds good and I have zero issues with it.

there is much better for the money, IMHO...
check out Avionixx or try to find a used Elemental Designs NINE.1

|Gav-O-SVT||ALWAYS stick with the high end name brand stuff, you get what you pay for and you get True Watts, not lies lol. I have a full kenwood setup, kenwd Deck / two 1000 watt kenwd amps / two 12" kenwd subs and baby do they dump hard! Heavy metal on the way to work, sounds like your in the front row at a concert rofl! Name brand FTW!|

Watts / Volts = Amps
So at (2) 40amp fuses in the above example, we're looking at around 900 "safe" watts??
Am I close to understanding this?
Edit: Dr J, yeah, on that model example, 50db SNR seems very low???

I've seen a few guys with them, and they sounded ok for the average person. Not sure what the setup was though.
The RMS rating doesn't appear to be CEA compliant, so I'd take those numbers with a grain of salt.
What concerns me is "Signal to Noise Ratio >50dB ". This seems awfully low.

The website is great for general info, but I wasn't looking for sales pitches & mission statements. I suppose I should have requested usage, technical or experience opinions, but all opinions are welcome. Thanks BigBody, from the numbers I was reading, they did not appear to be in the higher tier with the proven Mfg's.

that would be a no!
This is there most powerful amp. it says on there website that it is "3200 watts Monoblock", If you look at the specs below the pictures it says Amplifier Type Class-D
Bass Boost @ 45Hz 0 - +18dB
Damping Factor Greater than 200
Frequency Response 10Hz - 250Hz
High and Low Pass Crossover 12dB per Octave
High Level Input Range 1 Volt to 30 Volts
Low Level Input Range 0.35 Volts to 10 Volts
Low Pass Cross Over Range 50Hz - 250Hz
Minimum load impedance 2 Ohm and 4 Ohm in Link Mode
Number of Channels 1
Operating Voltage 10.5 - 16 Volts
Power (Watts) 3200 <supposed power
Power Requirements 12V DC (Negative Ground)
Recommended Minimum Power/Ground 4 Gauge (AWG) Cable
RMS Power Output @ 14.4V 1% THD+N 500W x 1 (@ 4 Ohm)
RMS Power Output @ 14.4V 1% THD+N 800W x 1 (@ 2 Ohm) < that low of an RMS rating is not likely going to produce 3200 watts
Signal to Noise Ratio >50dB
Subsonic Crossover Range 10Hz - 40Hz
Subsonic Filter 12dB per Octave
^^you will also notice that it has two built in 40 amp fuses will usually not do 3200 watts

|Big Body||From my experience, is bang for a buck equipment. Not bad and not great but an all around okay daily amp.|
