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.

650 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 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.

1300 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 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.

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 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.

2000 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
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
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.

GOOD CLEAN BASS

January 6, 2011

when i get these amp i had it running my hifonics olympus olm2415 it had replaced a borrowed alpine msr-500/1 and the difference in going from that alpine to this hifonics was the bass was some much cleaner and clear...i was running stock alt and batt so i know i wasnt getting no where near the rated output but i noticed that the alpine hit alot harder but this amp was alot cleaner...then i found out 1 of my coils had burnt out so i got a Memphis mojo and this amp with that sub destroy like 3 boxes(1 homemade and 2 prefab vented boxes)...there's nuthin bad i can say about this amp good clean bass reliable never over heats nor cut off make sure you have 1/0 gag and a extra battery to get the true potential of this amp ....SURE THERES BETTER BUT FOR THIS PRICES ITS WORTH IT

lots of power

April 26, 2010

I bought this amp for my two kicker l5 12s and it puts out a lot of power. This amp also takes a lot of power. I have a 105 amp alternator and a 3 farad cap and it still drops the voltage to 11 something. The subs are able to move the doors about a quarter inch. I have owned this amp for about three months and have never had a problem. even after playing the system at full blast for about a minute the amp is barely warm at all. I highly recommend this amp.

Great amp, great performance, great price!!!

March 7, 2010

I heard some mixed reviews that this amp is overrated. So I took it to a local shop to be tested. At 14.4 volts it was on the money. He dropped it to 13.8 volts & at 4 ohms 634 watts rms, at 2 ohms 1242 watts rms, and at 1 ohm 1896 watts rms. Not bad for a $275 dollar amp. It does its rated at 14.4 which is where they test them. I have mine running 2 Alpine Type R 1022D's @ 2 ohms and they pound...Highly recommend this amp if your on a budget

will even explode fellow innocent drivers

January 19, 2010

i am currently running this amp and the previous model of this amp in my burban. For whatever reason the previous model seems to output a little more power than this 2010 model but nonetheless this 2010 brutus will rip your face off with bass. it is not uncommon for me to be driving, especially approaching a red light, and seeing fellow drivers covering their ears due to the sheer obliteration these amps cause. make sure you externally fuse these amps because as far as i know they have no internal fuse. I have a 100 amp fuse on the 2008 model and a 150 amp fuse on the 2010 model and both work exceptional.

i had the 2008D on 2 type r subs and i have never heard anything that pounded harder the only reason i gave it a 4 in durability is because fedex dropped it or something when it was shipped because there was a loose piece inside it but it still worked for a couple months until the loose piece shorted on the connections inside the amp and fried it. If it wasn't for fedex i would still be slumpin right now

December 13, 2009

I have a Hifonics bxi 2010 hooked up to 2 JL Audio 12-w7's wired in parallel to 1.5 ohms in a 3.60 cubic foot box tuned to 40 hz, on kicker true 0 gauge amp kit with a hc600 kinetik battery in the trunk of my 05 maxima, Ive had quite a few amps on these w7s and this amp is definately the champ, w7's getting approx 825 watts, and i do believe there getting damn close to that, at least 775-800 watts which is a damn efficient amplifier, system pounds, I mean pounds! Dollar to wattage, hifonics is the way to go.

Hifonics Amp, Overrated.

October 11, 2009

I have owned two of these amps, and in my opinion, they are overrated. My first amp even fried on me!!They don't put out as much power as people say. I had 2 12" kicker CVR's that were powered by this amp and you could hear the clipping from the amp, and the sounds that it amplifies ARENT very crisp and clean. I hooked up my cousins rockford fosgate 1000 up to my subs and wow, HUGE DIFFERENCE! What's the moral of this story? Don't buy cheap products that claim to boast huge power, you will be disappointed. Save your money for something awesome! But that's just my honest opinion
