Product Description

Style: 2500 watts

Class A/B Topology

A class A/B amplifier uses two groups of transistors and it is generally considered to be the best compromise of the two classes put together. A pure class ‘A’ amplifier typically has an enormous amount of current flowing through its output transistors with no audio signal. A pure class ‘B’ amplifier has no current flowing through its outputs with no audio signal. This eliminates virtually all of the crossover distortion that’s possible with class ‘B’ amplifiers. A class A/B amplifier is much more efficient than a class ‘A’ but without the possible distortion of a class ‘B’.

MOSFET PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) Power Supply

Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor is a transistor used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. We use it in computers, telephones, game consoles, cars, electrical appliances, and in this case, our amplifiers. They are found in systems where information is processed or stored. A MOSFET is basically an electrical switch that allows the flow of electrical current. An electrical switch has two possible states, ON or OFF. The MOSFET performs its most important role in our D Class amplifiers by allowing or preventing the flow of power and creating an efficient amplifier. The “Pulse Width Modulated” is a design that is significantly simplifies power supplies. It controls the output voltage and current precisely by not only removing the output current sensing loss, but also eliminating all secondary feedback circuitry. The PWM is lighter and smaller, and can reduce total cost, as well as increase efficiency, productivity, and system reliability.

Low And High Level Inputs

Low And High Level Inputs

There are two different ways that you can get a signal into the AC2500.1M - low and high level input. A low level input is measured in voltages. It comes in the form of RCA outputs from the back of your receiver and goes to the RCA inputs on your amplifier. A high level input is measured in wattages. It comes in the form one positive and one negative wire from the back of your receiver and goes to the input terminal of your amplifier in the same wire form. Low-level (RCA) input wiring is preferred for best audio performance. Always use a high-quality RCA cable for best audio performance. Note: Do not connect both the high level and low level inputs from your receiver to your amplifier at the same time.

Adjustable Input Sensitivity

Adjustable Input Sensitivity

Properly setting the gain on your AC2500.1M is key to getting great sound out of it. The gain control is not for adjusting volume. It simply adjusts the amount of signal that is coming from your receiver and going to your amplifier. If you set it too high, you are introducing distortion into the sound. But if you set it too low, then you are choking back on what it is there to do in the first place. Here is a technique that works on most amplifiers. First, turn the amplifier’s gain all the way down. Then go up front and put on some music. Now crank the stereos volume until you hear distortion, then back it off until the distortion goes away. Go to your amplifier and turn the gain up until the distortion comes back. Then once again, back off until the distortion goes away, and you are done.

Variable Low-Pass Crossover
View larger
Variable Low-Pass Crossover

Subwoofers reproduce sound based on a number of different low-range frequencies. This process is called the crossover effect and occurs because the vast majority of audio systems cannot cover the entire spectrum sufficiently to minimize sound distortion and maintain an appropriate frequency ratio. In the case of our AC2500.1M amplifier, a variable crossover is offered so that you, the listener, can have the ability to set the frequency at which the crossover occurs, thereby setting specific sound specifications for the bass frequency reproduction.

It gets my sub really loud i can hear it from a block away.

After going into protect mode my sub no longer works so if you want to spend 250 on a sub definitely buy insurance or dont buy planet audio!!!!!!!

This little amp has no trouble running my 12" Pioneer subwoofer...very well built and looks great...Will definitely buy this brand again...

Style Name: 2500 watts
Thought I would write a review since there are none. I bought this amp on November 1, 2011 and sold it in February 2012. they were hooked up to 2 12" mtx 1000 watt subwoofers, some old school ones that had a red rubber surround and are hard to find now, for about a month. After i sold them and hooked up to 2 12" power acoustik mofo 12" subwoofers.I can not stick to a system for long, always wanting to try new things. This amp was pushing all the subs hard. Head hurting bass not trunk rattling loud bass that you could hear and not feel. When i would play in my driveway i could see my house windows shaking 15 feet away, photo frames inside the house shaking, and my fence would be vibrating as well. For the price this amp was great but i dont think it actually puts out 1800 watts rms at 2 ohm. more like 1400rms or less but around there and 1000rms at 4 ohm. Some people don't like that you have to take off the metal sides to wire up the amp, but i actually think it's great. Makes it harder for robbers to steal since they have tried to break into my car 3 times breaking my window twice. Especially if you live in that kind of neighborhood. Also like the how the ANARCHY lights up blue but not that bright. Would look nicer if it would be a bit brighter. I also expected for the planet symbol to light up, but just to let you know, it does not. Only owned the amp for a little over 3 months and i never felt it overheat or cut off.

I got this amp hooked up to 2 12inch soundstream reference series subs 600w rms a piece and this amp has more than enough power to make these subs slam it is also built very nice and strong great for the price. will update if any problems happen.

If you didn't already know planet audio and boss audio along with several other crap brands are owned by one company. It doesn't put out the 700w rms at 4ohms, pushed about 250w on amp dyno. Was not enough for my two JL W012's. spend a little more money and get a waayyy
better amp.

Makes lots of clean power. The lights on top look pretty cool. It has a bass knob which you used to have to pay a lot extra to get. This is the first amp I've bought since 10 years ago buying the old Rockford Fosgate amps (before they became junk). I push it hard and it sound good pushing 2 10" JLs.

I am always cautious about inexpensive electronics but this amp has surprised me. Design and construction are superb. I run my system pretty light most of the time so I haven't seen any overheating issues. When I do run it hard, it pushes my Pioneer 12" woofer so hard! Would buy Planet Audio products again and again.

Very nice amp. Really pretty. I have this on 4 6 1/2 Alphas. Going with Sound Stream though. Planet Audio 4000 watt is not for subs. Deadly went put on hi's though

Replaced a bazooka amp I had problems with overheating. So far, this amp has been doing its job. Not exactly the same kick as the bazooka, but has yet to overheat.
