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.
1700 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.
2500 watts x 1 channels
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. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 1 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.
3200 watts x 1 channels
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent or low bass hit. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. This is the peak power output for the amplifier's 5th channel.
5500 watts x 1 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.
BAMF (Power Acoustik)
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.

5500 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.

3200 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
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.
<1%
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.
No
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.

40 - 500 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
20 - 50 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.
100 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.
40A x 5 
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
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.
Amp Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature will tell you if the amplifier has the capability to connect to a Bluetooth device.

Great amp

January 24, 2012

I used this amp to power two MTX 15" 9500 (1500 watts RMS each 3000 watts total) and it did a great job. I run competition and saw this was cheap and figured it was worth the $200 to test it out and write a review.

This powered both of my 9500s very well, for the price you can't beat it, if your not running competition I highly recommend it. For the record it will not output 3200 watts rms at 1 ohm. Even with me running 10 awg speaker wire it's more like 2500 watts rms which is still worth it.

I have actually bought another one of these amps because I have not had a single issue (first amp being over one year old) and I use it with my first bamf 5500 to push two 15" re audio xxx's in my non competition car. So you know the REs are 2000watts rms each (4000 watts rms total) and again both of these subs push with no problem.

And for you guys running more than one of these (like me) this amp has a cool stack option for multiple amps and also has double RCAs so you don't need to buy an RCA "Y" splitter. Pretty convenient.

Other than that don't be fooled by these people saying they fail, neither of mine have failed, but you do need to run an extra high current Kinetik battery or have a damn good alternator ($700 plus) because you can't say just cuz it's cheap it doesn't use a lot of power, the double power and ground terminals helps but at the end of the day watts are still watts volts are still volts and that all effects your battery/alternator. I hope this helped.

best value amp I've ever used

July 2, 2013

I had an mtx blue thunder then a California 1600w for years that I loved. I beat the hell out of the California and it pushed hard without ever having a problem. I was using it to run my mtx 9500. One day after about ten years it finally died. Being older and having a kid and wife I couldn't justify getting another really expensive amp so when I came across the bamf 5500 I said ill give it a try. It pushes my mtx blue thunder subs hard and never has a problem. I also love the remote gain it makes turning it down or tuning it for the music playing easy. I havnt had any problems with it so far. Over all im glad I got it and im thinking about getting another one.

This thing is awesome. I've got it powering 2 Power Acoustik 154 mofos and it does the job pretty well. I'm not goin to gaurantee that it actually puts out the power it says it does, but it does the job with no problem. Plus it is actually 1 ohm stable like it says. If your in the market for a budget amp that will still make every piece of glass rattle this is definitely the amp to get.

This amp is great for the price, don't be like the other people on here and fry them with less than sufficient power, meaning buy the 0 gauge wire and the extra battery and don't get a capacitor a battery will work best.

This is a great amp for the price. Although it does not put out it's rated wattage. You are looking at a solid 1800-2000 RMS, if your voltage is good. Dollar for watt, nice amp.

good amp

November 18, 2011

This amp is 2000w RMS which is still plenty power to rock just about any sub. The bass is rugged and hard hitting, but if u really want true performance you must have a good alternator that supplies 14.4 volts and an extra battery for true performance.

Amp is great, I would pick over any other amp all day

March 23, 2014

Have ordered a lot of stuff from here. Great prices and fast shipping. This amp is so far the best amp I have bought or owned, it is for sure a beast of a amp. Dual 4 gauge power, ground and remote inputs. Have this on 2 15s running 1 ohm in my truck and just pounds. So far there is no cons to this amp. Easy tuning, and installment. The wattage to 100% true and can run at 1 ohm. For the price and true specs I would pick every time. Well worth the money for a nasty system.

"B"ad "A"** "M"utha "F"***a

March 18, 2012

This really is a "BAMF" for the money. i Have owned one, and they can take some abuse. Im talking clipping, low votage you name it. I remeber playing the amp down to 9v and the amp didnt go into protect. I had the amp for over a year and sold it. The amp is owned by one of my friends and it still going strong. I dont care what anyone says, these amps are built pretty beefy, they may not look like much but they hold there own vs the big boys. The only down fall to this amp is the power & ground being at an angle, and they should have just used a single 1ga input for both power & ground. Highly recommended to anyone who is on a budget and needs an amp, this will get the job done.

I got this amp pushing 2 12 inch W7, and I can't even hear the highs in my car. A slight distortion but only noticeable for people that are anal about bass ( like me). It's also great because although it uses 2 remote, 2 power, and 2 ground, it still doesn't consume much power from your battery. Price is beyond reasonable and the amp doesn't consume much space because it is very small for the power it is push in out. I would recommend this amp for anybody who wants power. Takes me 2 JL Audio 1000 to push out the same power and Jl audio cost 4X as much, so you do the math.

I purchased two of these, to each power an Orion HCCA 15 subwoofer. I'm hoping due to the high RMS wattage, my car will soon blow up. I plan on putting 2 Orion HCCA 15's in the trunk of a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT.

if i strapped 2 bamf 5500s what would the possible rms be @2ohms?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,
Normal operation for 2 BAMF 5500/1D is strapped 2ohms.
If you have a very good battery option under 1ohm (beware no saturation!).
If you have a good battery, under 0.5ohm opportunity for spl but with the first series BAMF 5500/1D. I have not tested the new series but should operate.
(Remember: the whole of BAMF 5500/1D to BAMF changed completely electronic because the output coils heated too, until the short circuit.)
It is no longer the same amp inside.
