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 2 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.

Not Specified
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 speakers or subwoofers equals 1 ohm, 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.

Not Stable
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.

Not Specified
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 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.

100 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.
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.
2
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.

200 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.

100 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.
4 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.
.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.

120 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.
90 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.
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
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
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.

Sound Storm SSL F2.2oo

August 9, 2010

This amplifier was purchased to provide improved sound for a motor home HDTV. Additional speakers were added and driven by this amplifier. The sound is excellent and way more power than necessary. The amplifier does everything expected and I would recommend it without reservation.

August 27, 2014

This was the most affordable amp I could find. It doesn't have huge amounts of power but does the job for me. I have it hooked up to 2 door speakers (Kenwood 6x8) in a jeep Cherokee and the sound is good and clear. Set up was very simple and easy.

SSL F2.200

August 4, 2014

I purchased this amp for my standard cab pick-up, because of it's size and value. I didn't need more volume although my Kenwood head unit was only putting out 20w RMS but I wanted enhanced sound. This is exactly what I got. Initially in setting out to accomplish this goal I replaced the front speakers with 40w door speakers and 60w rear speakers but I wasn't satisfied, the head unit just didn't have it to give. So I purchased the SSL F2.200. I definitely got more volume than I can stand in a standard cab Tk. I use the low base pass switch to bring out that desired base tone and I am quite happy. I also use one of SONIC's install kits that provided me with the wiring I needed to do it right. If you're wanting a richer sound for your stock set up I don't think you can go wrong with the SSL F2.200 unit.

Ok but not what I was looking for

December 19, 2013

I ordered this amp after my boss c250 died after 7 years of torture. I thought I had overpowered my JL Audio 8" w1v2-4 sub with that amp (50-150 rms for the sub) but I was wrong. The watts on this amp are great for a low rms speakers or sub. I just upgraded my speakers in my 2007 f150 with jvc's 6x8's and the mid bass came out.. Any way, the mid bass drowned out the bass from the sub with this amp. Overall the system sounds great but the deep bass I was looking for did not show with this amp paired with my upgraded speakers. Maybe if I had the stock paper eom speakers it might do the trick but since the amp was not bridgeable I am looking for a bit more thump from my sub that my old amp produced.

Good budget amp

May 28, 2011

If you're on a budget (and by budget, I mean I spend just a little over $300 for my whole system, sub, speakers, headunit, and amps), then this is the amp you're looking for. It powered my component speakers very well, and although it did get slight interference from the motors ignition (I routed the power wire too close to the speaker wires), it did sound good. I noticed the quality sounds better if you use the high level input rather than RCA, but unless you have sensitive hearing, you wont notice the difference.

alarm system

August 29, 2011

I bought this just for the use of my alarm system. used the alarm horn output as rca. and amp direct to 2 piezo tweeters in the car mounted by the front seats. amp works. tweeters worked. my ears.. don't work (exaggerated). do not try this on yourself. EVER!! i was seating in the backseat for about a second before i tried bursting the door open to get out. i doubt my ears would really work if i had been sitting in the front where the tweeters are directed. i dare anyone to rob my car now. overall for its use. its fine. but i doubt i'd be impressed using it for its real audio purpose. its bottom end audio for really low budget.

Willie G on Aug 22, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Willie,

The answer is as simple as this: 4 Speakers = 4 Channel Amp . You can get a bit more technical and fancy, but that won't be necessary for , what sounds like, a simple project. Assuming you are simply using Factory Speakers and Wiring to them, you won't need anything too fancy either, so here is a suggestion:

Tri-mode? Usually this means that you can run left/right/center but its not bridgable?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2014
Best Answer: Correct, not bridgeable. I believe "Tri-mode" is referring to the three different means of connecting your speaker leads, RCA cables from the head unit; pre-wired "high level input" plug, (speaker leads soldered in to the prewired plug), or direct line from the speakers to the amp terminal screws.
