Power Specifications - Full Range Channels

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 speakers or subwoofers 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.

50 watts x 4 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 speakers or subwoofers 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.

100 watts x 4 channels
Bridged RMS Power

Bridging refers to combining two channels on an amplifier to create one channel with double the voltage and an increased power output. A 2-channel amplifier will bridge down to 1-channel and a 4-channel amplifier can bridge to create 2-channels. An amplifier is most commonly bridged to drive a subwoofer.

Remember, once you bridge two channels down to one its final impedance will be 4 ohms unless otherwise specified. This rating lists the RMS power created once an amplifier is bridged.

175 watts x 2 channels

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.
MVP (NVX)
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.
4
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.

400 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.
8 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.
4 ohms
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.
<0.07%
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)
High-Pass (HP)
High-Pass Crossover Frequency
The high-pass crossover frequency can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable high-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies above the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies below 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.

40 - 400 Hz
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.

40 - 400 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.
101 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.
No
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.
30A x 1 
Strappable
Some amplifiers can be "strapped" together in order to increase the output of a single audio channel. These amplifiers feature RCA preamp outputs, allowing you to pass the signal directly from one amp to the other to ensure consistency.
No
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.

Yes
Sonic Certified Amplifier
Sonic Certified amplifiers have been tested by the experts at Sonic Electronix to meet or exceed the wattage ratings provided by the manufacturer. If this is marked as Yes, then you can trust the wattage ratings. If marked as No, then we have tested the amplifier and it did not meet the advertised wattage ratings. If marked as Not Tested, then the Sonic Electronix experts have not yet been able to test the amp.

Anybody using this on a motorcycle and how is it on the battery/electrical system?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2015
Best Answer: I installed this amp on my 2011 Victory Cross Country. It has plenty of power. I have not noticed any negative issues with the electrical system. I guess it might depend on how you wire it in.
I upgraded my speakers to 6.5 too but I am still tweaking the sound quality. I wanted to use the bridge capability but I wasn't able to get that to work correctly as I have never installed an amp before.
I have a buddy who has lots of experience with sound systems and am hoping he can figure out what I'm doing wrong. But regardless, I was able to hook it up unbridged and it has plenty of power.

Has anyone actually used the Velcro that comes with the amp to mount the amplifier? It comes with it , but the manual does not really say anything about it. The manual actually does caution against mounting to a "vinyl" surface or similar due to heat.

Best Answer: Hello Dave,

Generally speaking, we do not suggest attempting to do so. However, IF your amplifier has the ability to run properly with such a setup, then the user manual will imply it. Even with that said, for amplifiers that say they Can [e.g. Rockford Fosgate R600-4D] we typically still do not attempt it out of reassurance that we aren't stressing the amp. Nevertheless, check with your manual and/or the manufacture.

to install this Amp in my 02 Harley Davidson Electraglide will I need an installation kit and do you recommend the wiring harness you offer? if so please advise which one and why?
Jerry C on Nov 28, 2014
Best Answer: I replaced an amp that was already on my bike. The harness was already in place. Basically all you need is a stranded 12 gauge wire running to the battery for the hot and the negative. 2 fork connectors to connect them to the battery. Inline fuse block for the positive. Which I'd Mount by the battery for easy fuse replacement .a 16 gauge wire running from the switched power to the cigarette lighter positive for switched power to the amp. And then bring your speaker wires from the radio into the amp
And from the amp into the speakers

I'm looking to power 8 Speakers on a Harley Ultra, I know I will have to use two of them all my speakers are 2 ohm. has anyone used two of theses? If so how did it work?
john G on Oct 21, 2015
Best Answer: Hi John, I purchased this amp to power a set of component speaker (separate miss and tweets) and also a JL Audio 8" sub and it runs all these items with no problems at all. This amp totally rocks!! My local car audio store was amazed when they installed it with my sub. They were totally surprised how it sounded and that it had tons of power. You should have no problems running your smaller speakers. I was told that this amp is actually rated higher than what it is labeled at. You can't go wrong with this amp for your purpose. I also like the small compact size which would be perfect for your install. Hope this helps!

on the descriprion of the MVPA4 it says that the amp has signal sensing automatic turn -on, but it won´t work & it doesn´t explain anything on the manual, any help?
mario on Sep 2, 2015
Best Answer: Make sure you're remote turn on lead is properly connected at the head unit. Power (12V) only when the ignition is in the "ON" position, and check it with a meter. Then check at the amp. Check all fuses and then make sure you're getting 12+v main power from the battery. Double check your ground at the amp. Then start over with adjusting your gain levels as per the manual.

? How many electrical amps does this amp draw ( normal and max ) thank you
A shopper on May 2, 2015
Best Answer: Sorry I'm not sure on that, but from other audio forums they clam a max of 30a from an amp dyno at 4ohms. But I wanted to let you know that this amp has been a very good amp for me. I am using the amp on a Kawasaki 1700 motorcycle running 4 component sets at 2ohms, basically using everything the amp can give me and I don't have any electrical issues. Very impressive for its size. I also don't have any issues with the amp getting hot and I have the amp mounted in the trunk not getting any moving air for long periods of time. Hope this helps.

I'm running a Pioneer de-80 PRS and want to run in network mode. I'm currently running 4 Polk MM521's in my jeep + a sub and I'm wondering if I can ditch the polk passive crossovers and run two separate NVX MVPA4 4ch amps amping the mid woofer and the tweeters on these 2-ways separately? I really don't have room to easily install the component MM5251. This would allow me to control all crossover points for Mid, Hi, and Sub directly through my head unit. Little help would be appreciated.

Best Answer: Yes it can be done active this way. You'll have to run 3 amps if your going this route. One for highs, another for mids and one for the sub stage. A couple RCA splitters and you're in business. You have many options with this deck, its up to your imagination and problem solving abilities. This HU can actively run 4 networks if you power the front tweeters off the deck. You don't really need the rear tweets. Just move the front ones from the mid and put them up on the dash. It will clean up the sound and you wont have to drive them as hard. Hope this is helpful.

Building a hot rod and want to use this amp to run an i-pod directly from the amp and not use a car stereo. Limited space would make this a perfect choice if I can use it as a stand alone?

Best Answer: I have an iPad installed in my car. I believe this is the perfect amp for your setup. You can use an iStreamer or other DCA to get RAC signal from your iPod and feed it into the amp as well as charging your iPod.

So to be correct, You CAN select the 3-channel & bridge two inputs for a 4 Ohm Sub and use the other two for two 4 Ohm high pass config? Thanks Everyone!

Best Answer: Yes, this amp can be configured for 3 channels. It makes 175 in 4 ohms bridged. Make sure in bridged mode you only run (1) 4 ohm driver on this amp.

The description on the web page says to use 8 gauge power wiring. But the amp itself comes with what looks like 12 gauge wiring with the integrated 30 Amp fuse. So, which is the right wiring? If you have to use 8, how do you integrate the fused line it came with?
Mark L on Sep 5, 2015
Best Answer: mine is mounted in a Harley. Total wire run is 3.5 ft for B+ and about the same for B-. If you can imagine a sloppy install with 15 feet of wiring you can possibly see why they say to use such a heavy gauge. In reality the lug on the NVX cannot accept and 8 gauge anything. I tinned the end of the wire with solder and used 10 gauge. I think the fuse holder packaged with it is more 10 than 8. If you're running a setup further away from battery, install the 8 and clip in the fuse holder at the amp. At least there will be no loss in the wiring. Neat the little amp BTW.

How do you wire this in bridge mode for just 2 speakers ? Both speaker hook up and rca cable hook up. Thanks
Bruce D on Jun 19, 2016
Best Answer: to bridge both speakers uses fr+ , fl- for the first speaker and rr+,rl- for the second. If your using one set of rca cables run them to the front rca slots and keep it on 2channel . Have fun with it it's a killer little amp.

Will this amp work to power 2 small 8" subs in my doors?
Heath M on Mar 20, 2016
Best Answer: Hello Heath,

Your question cannot be answered in the manner that it was posed, so we aren't going to submit.

Any amplifier can "power" any set of speakers/subwoofers. If it will do it Properly and Match each other is a completely different question of its own, and is the question you must ask. With that said, "will this amp work..." yes, but we don't know if it matches the "subs in [your] door" because we don't know what subs they are. We suggest getting the model number of the subs (or at least the specs) and matching it with the amplifier. Alternatively, you can call our sales team with that information =]

Has anyone noticed a difference when hooking this amp with the speaker level inputs compared to the line level inputs? I temporarily hooked my amp with the speaker level inputs from my Gold Wing F6B and was very disappointed. The amp is powering a new set of MM series Polk Audio component 5.25" speakers. I traded out the factory radio and just tried running my phone from the headphone jack into the RCA line level inputs and what a difference. I am going to pick up a low to high impedance adapter/converter tomorrow and see how that performs.
james T on Dec 25, 2014
Best Answer: When I first plugged it in, it wasn't loud at all. Turn the little screw on the very right to adjust. In the manual it's explains how to set the output level. Really easy. I guess it isn't set from the factory
