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.
330 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.
600 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.
1100 watts x 1 channels

Amplifier Specifications

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.

1100 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.

600 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
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.
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.
1 pair
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)
Full (AP)
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.

50 - 300 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
0 - 70 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.
65 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 - 10 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 2 
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.

Pretty good for a sony

October 21, 2011

I usually don't buy Sony products specially amps, but i got this amp to power a couple kicker comps and this thing was surprisingly not bad. it's cea certified so you know the power rating isn't Sony rated, it is what its actually advertised. The settings could have been easier to get to though, i like how kicker did their knob controls on the top for easy access. and there is no remote bass knob control, which is a lot more useful than one would think. overall it's a good 600watt amp (realistically 500 - 550, unless your car runs at constant 14.4 volts). All in all i would give it a 7/10.

August 18, 2011

I have a 2006 impala SS. I bought this amp to match up with the sony 12" subs I got from the "nation's super center" and they match up perfect! no clipping or disortion. i have them installed in a ported box with the labyrinth venting design. Sounds goood! Doesn't get hot at all. i did it via loc tagged at the factory bose amp and with the out rca's, i ran two sets of clarion tweets on a jensen power 400 2 channel amp. with the sony mono on the subs, the bose running the mids, and the jensen running the clarion tweets from sonic elec. i'm booming , clear,and the mids are really talking. Sonic is the best thing since the dollar menu! lol!!!!

Blows the competition out of the water

August 12, 2011

This amp is amazing strong and powerful, i've had a mono rockfordfosgate amp before that had higher rms ratings but didn't come close to the actual power this has. It's bass is super clean not muddy at all. It's strong and you have the option to make the bass more loose or tight. The amp i have running on full every day and is definitely a keeper ever since last year i had this amp in runs just amazingly never heats up always runs really cool even in hot summer days it never heats up. It draws power a good bit but that power drawn is given to the speakers. I have my subs mounted in the rear deck so for it to work as well it needs to push more and wow does it push. I highly recommend this and at it's price point it's definitely a steal.

Sony as usual for me!!!

June 8, 2011

The only thing that needs changed with this product is more proficient cooling. I've got two of the new 12" subs running on 2 ohms each off of here and the amp will overheat sometimes, and throws on protection mode. Simple power reset and it goes away, but for real needs a cooling fan or two. Also, would greatly benefit from being able to run both of the subs at 2 ohms at a higher wattage. The amp is only turned up about 2/3's of the way and would like to squeeze a little more, but gonna have to get second amp for that...o well.

NOTHING BETTER!

January 4, 2011

I bought one of these amps for my first system and it was amazing. I couldn't have been happier with it! Really delivers great power, true to its ratings I believe. Has never ever shut off or even gotten warm! Good amount of tuning options and very durable (had it rumbling around in my truck for 6 months before I changed setup to a honda) Its yet to disappoint me, I actually loved it so much I just bought another one! Definite buy and you can not beat the price and value. I would never guess coming from Sony but I would certainly recommend!

Great amplifier

December 27, 2010

I never buy a product I don't research first and this amp was no exception. For the price you really can't beat this amplifier. It gives 1000 watts of power for your subs and then some. My 600 watt Earthquake sub has never sounded better. I crank my system up and this amp doesn't even flinch. It stays nice and cool unlike my other amp that overheated and fried after a few years. Overall this thing rocks and if you're gonna push under 1,000 watts then you should definitely check this amp out.
