Peak Power @ 4 ohms
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. 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. However, some manufacture's do not provide an RMS figure and therefore one cannot be advertised.

Bridged Peak/Max 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 Peak/Max power created once an amplifier is bridged.

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.
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 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.

1600 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.
1 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.
0.08%
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.
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)
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.

35 - 250 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
15 - 35 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.
95 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.
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
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.
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.
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

This thing has never gotten hot on me once and i ran it for about an hour an a half straight at one point. Although voices come thru the subs on certain songs and it is kinda annoying but i just got better rca cables and it fixed the problem

power hungry yet a good amp

January 26, 2010

I wasn't expecting this amp to do what it does in my car. i have it wired to 2 memphis mojo tens and it slams pretty good. its fault however is the efficiency, if you do not plan on upgrading your charging system do not buy this amp! I have a stinger dry cell and a 1farad cap with 4gauge memphis wire(which is VERY good wire) and i still have slight voltage drops. if you just plan on hooking this up to an all stock charging system you are looking at possibly blowing something, also if you plan on running it at anything but 1ohm it drops the efficiency. but if you have the will to upgrade your charging a little then don't be afraid this amp puts out some serious power for the dollar.

FYI: BEST AMP IN ITS CLASS

February 7, 2010

read the few not so good reviews here on sonic and you will see that they prolly are not doing things correctly, this amp has a fuse rating of 140 amp which means you need at least 140 amps to run it at full potential, most cars have a maximum of 80 amp alternator which is not even half considering the car needs so many amps to run, i have this amp, i have two optima batteries, a 200 amp high output alternator , all 0 gauge wire, and can tell you this amp pushes all 1600 watts. 144+ db

I just got my bxi1610d delivered today and i did not hesitate one minute to install it in my truck. i currently have it powering or let me say ABUSING the h*** out of my pair of alpine type r 15". if you want power your gonna get power with this bad boy. just make sure you have the proper wiring gauge and amps running to this monster. and about the clean sounding audio freaks that are more into quality and decide to bash on this product you have to remember its not a quality amp its more for SPL and hair trick bass.i have it running at 1ohm and its as solid as a tank. great product and really awesome price to. oh and it comes with a bass knob.

I've been working in car audio since I was 14 and I am a certified installer, I work with new and used and I have never had bad luck with Hifonics. I bought 2x12" kicker L5's and needed real power for them. these amps are rated right, they have more then enough adjustments so tuning is easy, I have a 20 farad cap to help power this beast, no distortion from the amp at any volume, its amazing, I've lost the spoiler off my car (the subs cracked it off) and busted out my tail lights countless times, its real power, you wont regret buying this amp

POWER HOUSE!!!

March 21, 2010

I had this amp pushing two Alpine Type R 15's wired down to 1-ohm. DAMN this amp pushed them so good. both subs rated at 750+ RMS sounded like they were at their peek. The good thing is that These HIFONCS class D amps never get hot.. NEVER! Just a little warm. Don't be a fool and try to bite more than you can chew with this amp... because your not gonna get its full potential with 4 gauge and a stock batt with a small capacitor. I got an Optima Yellow Top, 0 gauge runs to the amp, and the big 3 power upgrade with 0 gauge stinger wire. i was hitting 145+ DB's. These amps are SOLID as he** and made to last.

Decent Amp

January 4, 2010

This is an ok amp for the price. I installed this in a friends truck with a 12'' Pioneer Champ Pro Serious Sub DVC 2 ohm with a large Folded Horn Box. I was expecting it to pound with a 1ohm load. Well these amps are not efficient. I have done many installs and this amp is power hungry. You need a really good ground and good wire. Upgrade the big three and maybe a cap to supply this with power. I was on a budget system so we had cheaper wire. Though still 4 gauge and Clip, Clip, Clip, on the brand new pioneer because this thing needs power! Stick with your High End brands. And in the end I tried my JL 500/1 on the sub and it put out more power at 4 ohms. So... Go with higher end stuff if you can afford it. You will end up spending the difference with buying a new battery and alternator to feed this thing. Also the size its huge hardly fits anywhere.

AWESOME AMP!!!

November 27, 2009

Ok, first off. I have a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport with a 6cu ft box i build for my sub. I have this beast wired at one ohm to a 2008 Kicker L7 15 Dual 2ohm model. And it absolutely SLAMMMSSS!!! I can pound whatever i want with this amp. I was a lil skeptical with the frequency response when i ordered it, but im NOT disappointed at all. The lows are INSANE in my truck. The mids are great and the highs are great also. But as soon at i hit a low note....everything moves in and out of my truck. seats, hedliner, STEERING WHEEL a lil, window flex, roof flex, hatch flex, and everything in between. I really dont have any down points to this amp. it was easy to tune like any other amp, doesnt get hot, and just beats all day long.

i had this amp running on two diamond d3's and it sounded pretty good. Im not sure if it puts out the full 1600rms but it maxed my diamond d3's out at 2 ohm no problem. Now i have the bxi2010 and my kicker cvx's pound at 1 ohm. Very good amp. i would recommend this amp if your not looking to spend a whole lot but need a good amp. I had my bxi1610 for about 6 months and i had no problem with it at all.

An Absolute Beast AMP!

May 23, 2009

I have 1 of these running at 1 OHM with 2 cerwin vega VMax124 12's in a sealed box in my expedition and this amp makes those puppies roar. Hifonics always makes super power packed amps and this one is 100% high quality. Runs at 1 OHm with no issue what so ever. I love this amp it's a great buy.

OH MY GOSH!!!

March 10, 2009

This amp pounds out some clean bass. I have it hooked up two RE SE D4 12\'s. BXi1610D makes my subs slam some bass. I\'m waiting to get a new battery so it will stop my lights from going dim.

But overall this amp is the best. Hifonics knows what they are doing when it comes to car audio.

Great Amp for the price

March 30, 2010

This is my second amp from the Hifonics family. The first amp was the 1200 D model and it lasted for 3 years with no problems. This 1600 D model is more powerful no doubt and it gives out nice clean power and never seems like its straining to push my 2 12" alpine type R subs.

An amp that beat

March 20, 2010

I have owned this amp before, powered up by kicker 4 gauge wire. It's the amp what you paid for it. It's not the best amp, still not the worst one. If you don't care about the CEA Compliant go with this one, but I don't think this amp has the power of 1600 watts stabled at one Ohm. More like 800 to 1,000 watts for a single Ohm. But, if your pro you should know that if your running over a 1,000 watts you need a O gauge wire to run the amp. Other wise you only running the half of power on an amp that is over 1,000 watts. I think this amp only get the job done, but if you want something loud and have a great value go with the MTX thunder Elite. You'll be happy for what your getting.

Power from the Gods... they weren't joking.

January 31, 2010

I really recommend this amp to anyone who wants to be "heard" coming down the street... i hooked up my 2 12" round solo barics inside my 1500 single-cab chevy behind the seat... it shakes the whole truck up. just be sure your subs are ready for this kind of power because this amp delivers the power you need. This amp uses lots of power so you need a good battery and maybe even a capacitor. The bass boost control is a very nice feature too.
