Maxxsonics, which owns the MB Quart, Crunch, Hifonics and Autotek brands, is now tracking the serial numbers on all of its car amplifiers and it is offering consumers a factory direct extended warranty on its amps.
Extended warranties run from about $9 for one year to about $50 over several years, depending on the amplifier.
The tracking program is also intended to control unauthorized distribution.
Under Hifonics, the company just introduced a brick-and-mortar-only line of Brutus amplifiers. Designed for limited distribution, the series includes Class D amps up to 2500 watts max and AB amps in 2- and 4-channels. This is the first time Hifonics is offering a brick-and-mortar controlled distribution line, said the company. Prices range from $149 to $699.
