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.
350 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.
1500 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.
Phantom (Boss)
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.
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.

1500 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.
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.
.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)
High-pass (HP)
Full (AP)
High-Pass Crossover Frequency
The high-pass crossover frequency can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable high-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies above the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies below 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.

45 - 90 Hz
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 - 150 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.
103 dB
Channel Separation
Also referred to as crosstalk. The amount of interference on one stereo channel caused by the leaking of the other stereo channel. The higher the rating in decibels (dB), the better the Channel Separation.
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.
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.
30A x 1 
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.

Better as "2 Channel"

July 18, 2014

This was the first amp I ever owned, and it did decent pushing my 12" Kenwood sub. However, I quickly upgraded and this amp sat in the basement collecting dust for a couple years...

I decided to put it to good use by wiring the amp to a computer power supply and hooking up some bookshelf speakers to it, since there is an full pass filter that allows all frequencies to pass. The sound quality is amazing, and the amp stays cool which makes me think this amp would be a better full-range 2 Channel style amp rather than monoblock that would push a sub.

While it may just be a monoblock, I think this Boss amp's potential is best used when pushing full-range speakers, due to its really clean sound quality. Realistically, the RMS is probably about 100w@4ohms and 200w@2ohms, which is great for pushing speakers. So as I have already said multiple times, I would recommend this amp more for home audio or 2 Channel style car audio than to push a sub.

Boss PH1500M

March 17, 2014

Ok well when i used to own this amp It was nice little amp.But i can tell you right now it doesn't do 1500w The fuse rating only calls for about 400w But thats max so take about 100/200 off that And maybe you get 200w out of this amp clean.But it was a pretty sturdy amp got it wet a couple cause my trunk leaked in my old car and it still worked fine for 2 years.Then i sold it and it still works today.But for a nice budget amp to run your 500w subwoofer i think this amp would be great for you.

June 24, 2013

I hooked 2 kenwood kfc-w12ps and they work really nice with this amp. one thing I don't like is how the amp gets really hot after using it. its good for about 30-45 minutes and it stops working from too much heat. they bump really nice and sound really good with the 2 subs but I wish the amp wouldn't get so hot.

Just Alright.

December 9, 2012

Ever since I purchased this amp, every sub ive also bought has clipped severely. (and yes the subs were a match for the amp, rms wise) and right now I'm running kenwood kfc series 12's and it pushes them fine but once i turn the gain on the amp just right above zero, it clips. It could be my wiring internally.. (rca cables may be picking up different signals and is causing my subs to clip) who knows, but if your looking to play low level bass, it hits lows and some mids pretty good. Just not loud. It hits notes with precision and has good quality. And when the phantom lights up it looks pretty cool. I just wish it could preform as well as it looks. and again, the subs were weird and matched to the subs fine. I just can't figure out why it is clipping..

Powerful little amp for the money

August 28, 2012

I got this amp for a bargain, I was looking for a mono block with a remote bass knob that would power my sub wired down to 2ohms. Let me tell you, I hooked this up to a Kicker comp cvr 12 and it shakes my steering wheel Of my BMW 330i M-package. The design is nice,the word phantom lights up red at night, it looks sick. I have never had it shut off due to overheating on me. I take road trips for 4hours and keep the radio blaring, the amp doesn't seem to break a sweat. I would highly recommend this amp if your looking for a cheap solution to great power!

Great Amp, Ordering a second one soon

July 17, 2011

Bought this amp about a week ago from Meijers for about 102 dollars. Plugged it up to two different subs at different times. The first sub was an older Kenwood Type R and it made that sub sounded great. But then since the sub was getting old I bought the Phantom 10 inch series woofer from Boss and I have to say. It surprised me. I hooked it up, wore it in for about a day, went to a party and had people telling me they heard me coming from a good 4 blocks away. Got out when music was playing, went in my friends house and it was shaking things off his kitchen table! I believe it pushes all of the 1500 it says, because I've owned 800 watt monoblocks that cost 3 times as much that barely did what this does.
