    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.

    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.

    AB
    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.

    1500 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.

    1100 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.
    4 AWG
    Minimum Impedance Unbridged
    The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
    2 ohms
    Minimum Impedance Bridged
    The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
    Not Bridgeable
    THD at Rated RMS Power
    The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
    0.01%
    Speaker Level Inputs
    Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
    Yes
    Preamp Outputs
    Many amplifiers are equipped with RCA preamp outputs which pass the original music signal from the source to additional amplifiers. This is known as daisy chaining because the source connects to the first amp, and the first amp connects to the second amp, etc. The advantage to daisy chaining is you only need one 2-channel RCA cable to transfer the signal from the head-unit to the amplifier, and then one additional cable for each amp being daisy chained.
    No
    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)
    Low-Pass Crossover Frequency
    The low-pass crossover frequency is typically used for subwoofers. It can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable low-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies below the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies above the set point gently or harshly roll-off, depending on the steepness of the slope.

    The steepness of the roll-off slope is measured in dB/octave and refers to the rate of attenuation (lowering of volume) outside their pass bands.

    45 - 90 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.
    102 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
    Bass/Gain Remote
    If the amp comes with a bass/gain remote you will be able to control the level of your bass from your dashboard. Typically bass remotes also include a 16-20 ft. wire for installation.
    Yes
    Fan Cooled
    A great feature to have if an amp generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the amp from overheating (burning).
    No
    Fuse Rating
    The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
    25A x 1 
    CEA-2006 Compliant
    Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
    • RMS Power
    • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

    This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

    No
    Hi-Res Audio Compatible
    This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

    How come this says 1100W RMS @4Ohms before you click on on it, but when you click on it it says only 700W RMS @4Ohms? I almost just wasted $60.
    Unacceptable..
    A shopper on Aug 5, 2015
    Best Answer: It is saying that the amplifier can handle up to 1500 watts (not really). It says rms capability is 700 @ 4ohm and 1100 @ 2ohms, but in reality it can barley push 300 wat rms due to the fuse being only 25amp. Check the fuse rating that will give you a good idea on what the amplifier can push.

    is this amp 1ohm stable?
    Devan H on Oct 22, 2014
    Best Answer: Hello Devan,

    The manufacture does not provide a 1ohm Rating, and therefore you/we are to assume it is Not. Attempting it will be Warranty Void, so stick to the impedance that has a rating.
