Intelligent Sound – Intelligent Style
The smooth-edged and rounded design leaves a blue-pearl gloss finish on the fortified aluminum heat-sink. The stream-lined and high-tech appearance will definitely add some attention to your audio.
Total Audio Control
Once you are connected, customize and adjust your listening experience to your liking with the amplifier’s control center. You can personalize and fine-tune settings like:
- High-Pass Filter – When Crossover Mode is in High-Pass Mode, this control limits the frequencies which will be distributed to the speakers Crossover Switch – Routes output of the Low Pass (LP), or the output of the High Pass (HP) filters, or ‘FULL’ to the internal power amplifier.
- Low-Pass Filter - When Crossover Mode Selector is in Low-Pass Mode, this control limits the frequencies which will be distributed to the speakers.
- Line Input – Accepts line level (RCA) inputs from 0.2 to 5-Volt.
- High-in - Accepts speaker level inputs from radios that do not line level (RCA) outputs.
*Please refer to table below for amplifier specific information and adjustment options.
Turn the volume control on the amplifier to minimum initially. Once the initial power sequence has been performed, set the volume control to roughly 80% of full power. Play some audio and slowly turn up the amplifier volume control until you hear some distortion, and then back it off for the sharpest sound setting. This amplifier has RCA connections for Low Level inputs. Low Level signal is carried through RCA cables. It is preferred to use Low Level inputs to the amplifier if the headunit is equipped with matching outputs.
Speaker Output Connections
Connect right and left speaker wire to corresponding speaker output terminals of the terminals. Be sure to have the positive wire from the speaker to the positive speaker terminal of the amplifier and the negative wire from the speaker must connect with the speaker terminal of the amplifier. Reversing any of these connections will result in the speaker cones moving out of phase which causes bass cancellation.

Top customer reviews
I have this set up with two channels (#3 and #4 on the amp, i think) in stereo driving my highs/mids, and the other two channels bridged to drive my sub. The controls on the amp are good, in my opinion, and I was able to take the output from my pocket ogg/flac/mp3 player and send it directly to the amp, and get decent sound.
Recently I installed a preamp, thinking I would be able to better utilize this amp. I thought wrong. When installing the preamp, I finally decided to troubleshoot an old problem, that one of the stereo channels was barely putting out anything. Swapping inputs and speakers, I realized that the problem was the amp itself. I was aware of the problem for months now, but had assumed that the speaker was the problem. Then in the first day after installing the preamp, one of the channels on the sub went.
All in all, I probably got my money's worth. But now that I need to replace it, I'm definitely looking for something else.
Here's the link to the subs:
I used two subs, so I connected them in stereo (as opposed to mono where the sub would have been bridged--you could bridge the amp for double power to 1 sub).
I put this system in the hatch deck of my Mazda Protege5 to push the low end of the spectrum for Metal, Rock, and on occassion, classical.
I don't play rap or R&B, so I don't know that this combo will "thump."
That being said, there are a few settings I've had to "turn down" to keep the low end from being completely overpowering.
For one, you can decide how much of the sound is dedicated to the low end of the spectrum and how much mid comes through.
I've opted for a middle setting as the low end is too much and the option to let everything through is too little.
I've also got the level turned down a bit and control the amount of signal sent to the amp through the head unit (a sony XPLOD mp3/usb/aux equipped deck).
The amp has worked flawlessly for over a year and I'm getting ready to buy another for another vehicle.
I love this amp and the subs.
I imagine the amp has plenty of power to push larger subs than mine (it appears it could blow mine if I were to push them too far), but I don't know how far it could go.
As others have noticed (and as anyone shopping for a sub should take into account) the Wattage listed is not RMS (continuous power) but PEAK power, which means that at the moment the amp is being asked to "hit," that is the wattage peak being reached. My two 8" subs are 400 watts each, so with both running, they would max out at 1600 watts when the bass hits at their limits . . . and 1600 isn't that far from 2300 watts.
In any case, I highly recommend this amplifier.
*** Update 8/24/2014 ***
When I wrote the above review, I was getting ready to purchase this amp for another vehicle . . . and did so. I installed the same amp and subs in my then newer car and am still totally satisfied with everything. I have had absolutely no problems with the amp and, as I said previously, could easily overpower my two 8" subs which are connected in stereo to this amp. Believe it or not, I am seriously considering buying this again for my current new car, a Honda Fit. If it ain't broke, why fix it? Seriously, check the specks, make sure the subs you want to power with this unit will work (the number of subs, the combined OHMs, etc.) and if the numbers add up, do it!
