Power Specifications - Subwoofer Channel

RMS Power @ 4 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 4 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
1000 watts x 1 channels
RMS Power @ 2 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 2 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.

RMS Power @ 1 ohm
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far.

Amplifier Specifications

Amplifier Series
This designates the series of the amplifier. Many amps are available in a litany of different wattage and channel configurations, but maintain consistent features throughout the product line.
Anarchy (Planet Audio)
Amplifier Class

An amplifier increases the power of the signal being fed to it by taking energy from its power supply and matching the signal but increasing its amplitude. Amplifiers use many different methods for converting these electrical signals and have been categorized into classes.

Class A/B: Greater than 50% of the input signal is amplified while the other percentage is “off”. These amplifiers have a small amount of current flowing through the output transistors all the time which almost eliminates crossover distortion. Class A/B has great sound quality but is not as efficient as class D. These amps are most commonly used to drive speakers.

Class D: Also known as switching amplifiers, class D amps have output transistors that are completely turned “on” or “off”. This means that when the transistors are on, there is almost no voltage across them but when they are off there is significant voltage but no current flowing through it which makes these amplifiers very efficient at the cost of sound quality. These amps are most commonly used to drive subwoofers.

Other Classes: You may see classes such as GH, bD, X, FD, etc. by some manufactures. These amplifiers tend to be either class A/B, D or a hybrid of the two but with improvements to their designs that can make them more efficient or offer better sound quality.

D
Number of Channels
Each channel on an amplifier will power one speaker using a positive and negative cable. There are various types of amplifiers, each designed to power a certain number of speakers. Monoblock amplifiers, also known as single channel, are designed to power one or more subwoofers. These amplifiers often have very high power ratings. On the other hand, multi-channel amplifiers power multiple speakers, usually at lower power ratings. 2-Channel and 4-Channel amplifiers can power car speakers or low powered subwoofers. Occasionally you might see a 5 or 6-channel amplifier that can power speakers and subwoofers at the same time. The most common setup is a monoblock amp to run subwoofers and a 4-channel amp to run door speakers. Check out our Knowledge Base for more information.
1 - Mono
Total Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

3000 watts
Total RMS Power Output
Total RMS power is measured by multiplying RMS power per channel by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

RMS power is the amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS figure, the louder and cleaner your music sounds.

The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.

2100 watts
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
1/0 AWG
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
1 ohms
Minimum Impedance Bridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
Not Bridgeable
Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

Low-Pass (LP)
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
15 - 40 Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
105 dB
Bass Boost
The objective of the bass boost is to get more kick out of your subwoofer. It is a circuit that emphasizes the lower frequencies at a given point. The bass boost should always be set first before setting the gain. This feature is known for destroying subwoofers and is commonly used incorrectly, so be cautious.
0 - 18 dB
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

how can i mount the ac3000,1d to my speaker box? do i drill screws through the enclosure?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2015
Best Answer: Hello ,

Besides the fact you are DRILLING into your enclosure, we highly recommend finding an alternate location to mount your amplifier because it can be more precarious than it is convenient. Carpet does a very bad job of dissipating heat Away from the source; The source here being the amplifier. Unless you get clever with the use of Spacers, the carpet may cause harm in the long run, but even if you use spacers the next issue is more concerning. Moreover, in high power systems the Enclosure will FLEX/Bend, and will flex/bend anything that is on it. I'm sure it goes without saying, a flexing/bending amplifier is probably not a good thing. Please plan accordingly.

My local audio shop was telling me that i take the fuse number of an amp and in this case it is 30 but there are 2 so that would make 60 and multiply that by 10 which makes 600 that will give me the rms of the amp. ive been going off this ever since they told me that. The product tells me at 1 OHM it will run at 2100. I think i should believe the product but I want to ask somebody that knows a thing or two. Also I have 2 Boss P126DVC 2300 watt max 1150 watt rms. If this amp runs at 2100 rms would it be a good amp for these subs? (of course i would wire the subs to 1 ohm by the way)

Best Answer: Assuming that the subs are truly rated are 1150 watts RMS. You will need an amp that will push 2500 watts of clean RMS. Your amp has to have to have a little breathing room or it will overheat n clipping might occur. From past experience and testing on a dyno. The PA amp ac3000.1D was not truly rated at @ 2100 RMS but below its rating way below. My suggestion to you Is you search for a better quality amp. Make sure that the RMS on the amp are rated according to tech standards. Just an exaggeration by (Planet Audio) to mislead consumers and bump sales. In this case you will get what you pay for if you want quality. This amp is not what you need or what your looking for.

What is the RMS wattage at 2ohms in real world application? Im assuming that the manufacturer specs are overstated.
A shopper on Nov 3, 2014
Best Answer: BUYER BEWARE!
You are right my friend! The specs are way over rated, over by 2000watts. Tested with a sound dyno @ 1 ohm it read 479 before clipping. Didnt do any better @ 2 ohms. They must not know RMS or Planet Audio is not having success with this amplifier.

what speaker works well with this amp?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

That depends on how much power you wish to push from the amp. We are partial to going with a 2ohm setup, which - if the specs are true - means 1500 watts @ 2 ohms , from this amp.
You also didn't specify a size, budget, or brand preference, but the specs would have us partial to the NVX VCW102 .

I have 2 questions, Phase shift selector, what does it do? Input voltage sensitivity selector switch, what does it do as well?
Radar on Oct 31, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Rodney,

Phase Shift - changes the polarity of the outputs. Think of this as "pushing the sound backwards", instead of Out it goes In. There is more to this, but it will get confusing. Simply put, this changes the sound to match the Stage of your project. This will likely NOT be used.

Input Sensitivity - This is meant to match the Sensitivity of your headunit. If your headunit's PreOuts are 4v, then the switch needs to match that. If you have an entry level headunit, then unfortunately your PreOuts are sub-2v and will need help, so that is why the switch is there.
