Budget 8000W Amp Dyno Drag Race! Orion vs Soundstream

So you have $200 and want to get the most "bang for your buck"? I thought many of you may be in this boat, so I was surfing Amazon and came across two amps that offered very similar ratings for almost the same price. The Soundstream AR1.8000D and Orion Ztreet ZO8000.1D. Both amps promise "8000 Watts MAX" and offer a more conservative 2000 watts RMS power at 1 ohm, 14.4 volts. Since both were about the same price and nearly identical specs, I figured I could buy both and try them on the Amp Dyno setup in a Drag Race style test! Are you ready to rumble??

edit: I recently found out the Orion Ztreet amplifiers are International versions and are not supposed to be sold in the US. I was asked to test the Orion Cobalt series and will do so soon.
