Class D Topology

A class-D amplifier or switching amplifier is an electronic amplifier where all power devices (usually MOSFETs) are operated as binary switches. They are either fully on or fully off. Ideally, zero time is spent transitioning between those two states. In this way, power loss is significantly reduced and making a D class amplifier anywhere from 75% to 95% efficient To maintain high efficiency, the filter is made with purely reactive components (inductors and capacitors), which store the excess energy until it is needed instead of converting some of it into heat. Some other advantages include Reduction in size and weight, Reduced power waste as heat dissipation and hence smaller (or no) heat sinks and Reduction in cost due to smaller heat sink and compact circuitry.

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 billions of them. In our computers, our 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. This is where 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 can increase efficiency, is lighter, smaller, can reduce total cost, productivity and system reliability.


Variable Phase Shift

This function on the amplifier comes in handy for custom installations where you might need to have your speakers or subwoofers mounted the non-traditional way with the magnet facing out. Let us explain. You can set the Phase anywhere from 0 degrees to 180 degrees. What this does is that it reverses the polarity (Positive/Negative) on your subwoofer terminals which in turn reverse the direction of the low frequency BOOM that you are used to hearing.

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 AC5000.1D 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.

Low Level Inputs With Pre-Amp Outputs

A low level input is measured in volts. It comes in the form of RCA (low level) outputs on the back of your head unit and goes to the RCA inputs on your amplifier (Right/Left). With that in mind, you can take control of more power by connecting more amplifiers together using the RCA pre-amp outputs (Right/Left) from your primary amplifier straight to the RCA inputs of a second or satellite amplifier (Right/Left).

Variable Subsonic Filter

Subwoofers start to bottom out trying to reproduce low-frequency signals that are below their abilities to sound off. Bottoming out is more a mechanical problem and happens when the subwoofer driver reaches the limit of its excursion and creates a clacking or flapping sound instead of the low frequency entering its voice coils. If your sub is bottoming out, short of changing the driver into one that has better low-frequency handling, you can try the AC5000.1D which has a subsonic filter to filter out frequencies below its specified low frequency limits.

Variable Bass Boost (0 to +18 dB)

So you have Bass Boost and Variable Bass Boost. The difference between the two is that with Bass Boost you either have extra bass or you don’t. But with Variable Bass Boost you have the control of exactly how much BASS you want to pump out to your subwoofer(s). And this is what you get with the AC5000.1D Amplifier. Variable Bass Boost.

Strapping Capable

This sounds like exactly what you might be thinking. You are able to strap your AC5000.1D amplifier to another Anarchy class D amplifier and double the power that is being sent to your subwoofer(s). You now have the ability to connect more subwoofers to take advantage of the extra power.

Style Name: 5000 watt max. One Ohm stablePackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
i have 2 of these strapped together pushing my 2 15" kicker L7 2ohm dvc

pros:
*affordable
*they aren't massive in size compared to "some" other higher priced amplifiers
*easily adjusted
*plenty of power: (RMS) 3.5kw@1ohm, 2.5kw@2ohm, 1.8kw@4ohm

cons:
*car needs a decent alternator+batteries to keep up
*they get "pretty warm" in my torture tests but "not hot"

other things you should keep in mind:
i may be wrong, but here is my basic math to figure the power requirements of the alternator.
lets use the rms wattage for a 2ohm single channel setup for one of these AC5000.1D's.

2,500/12=208.333... simply divide the required wattage by the voltage the system runs on to get the required amperage.

if you cant afford a good alternator you better invest in some very good deep cycle batteries and capacitors.
dont forget to also invest in some good wiring too. solid copper 0gauge if you can.

*UPDATE*
so i have had these for about 4 months now and have had an issue with one amp going rogue. it began to smoke so i turned off my car, and to my surprise it continued to draw power from the battery. i had to literally rip the positive wire from the terminal to get it to stop! i sent an email to Planet Audio and they still haven't replied in over a week! i don't care for an RMA i just wanted to warn them that this amplifier shorted and nearly caught my car on fire. i even took pictures of their product so they could figure out if it was an isolated incident. but instead they chose to ignore me. ill be sure to post pictures of the faulty units on here so others can see.

Style Name: 4000 watt max. One Ohm stablePackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
So... A 4000 watt peak power amp for less than $140(price includes next day shipping). Just get it. I bought this amp because my 2 expensive Orion XTR15001's blew. I bought this as a quick replacement amp/backup so i wouldn't be without bass for two long weeks. I had to send my amps in for repairs. Man, this thing has power for sure. My setup is: 6 Kicker CVR 12's dual 4ohms, wired down to 1.5 ohms, a huge custom vented box with 3 chambers 2-2-2(subs facing up/not a wall), I was somehow able to connect 0 guage wires, two Optima batteries, and some other goodies. All in a 3rd Gen Exploder. Comparing this amp to other high brand amps like Kicker, Orion, JL, Rockford, etc... this thing is awesome for the price. This amp basically forces power to your subs. The bad part is that it lacks clarity. Something that I truly look for when buying an amp. I feel like i have 4 15's in an old school boxed Chevy without dyno... It's kind of sloppy. If your system doesn't normally hit the highs, this amp will force it out of them. Possibly pushing your subs to the edge. Or if your subs don't hit the lows, yeah you'll get it. Just be careful not to over do it. I'll end with this, the amp is capable of blowing all of my subs if I wanted it to. If you have some L7's, JL's, RE's, or even some Orion's, it'll BANG! If anything, just buy it for a spare like I did. Oh, connecting 0 guage was almost impossible. 4 guage is proper. If you do have 0 guage like i do, just strip some of the wiring and be sure none of the wires cross over! "Use electric tape." Enjoy this amp as much as I do! Don't mess with the sub-sonic gain if you don't need to. Peace my fellow bass heads!

Style Name: 5000 watt max. One Ohm stablePackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
I usually do not take the time to write reviews, but I think this product should receive some good feedback. Planet audio has actually been around a long time and has some really good products. I installed this amplifier in my dodge neon along with two Quantum audio QAW10D4 subwoofers rated 2500W each in a ported box.

This amp has 4awg power connectors which I think is the only drawback. It should have 1/0 connectors. it comes with a 200A ANL external fuse with all hardware and mounting accessories. Some sites and forums are saying it has 4 40A fuses, but that is incorrect. The amp is rather large and very well built. It has 3500W RMS at 1 ohm, 5000max which is probably why it has that large of a fuse. It has good ventilation all around and underneath. The sound is very clean and so far I have not hit the audible distortion point and I definitely have not hit clipping, although I have not tried to push it that far yet. All of my deck bass levels and sub levels are flat at 0. no bass boost on the amp or deck, just everything on the bass side set flat.

You will definitely require an upgraded electrical system and alternator. I have a dual Optima battery setup running 1/0awg cabling through the car and Monster 4awg to the amp. I have a 5 farad cap just to ease the snap load on the 150A alternator. I have the gain only at half way and the bass knob also at half. No bass boost or other junk.

With this setup, my entire car is flexing and all of my mirrors are useless. The rear-view mirror keeps falling at quarter volume.

With the proper electrical upgrades, speakers, deck, etc. I believe that you will be very satisfied with this amp in no less than a mid to high end audio system.

UPDATE: So it has been TWO YEARS since I have had this amp.
