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 4 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 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 4 channels

Amplifier Specifications

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.

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.

400 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.

200 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
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.
0.01%
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
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.
102 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/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.
15A 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.

Decent Basic Amp

July 28, 2010

I'm powering (2) 6x9's and (2) 5 1/4 inch speakers with this amp. It does the job pretty darn good. This thing runs hotter than a firecracker tho so I think I'm going to put a couple computer fans on a relay to keep it cool. I was kind of disappointed seeing it only has a 15 amp fuse in it. However if it lasts 6-8 months i can't complain for the price.

Nice amp

March 12, 2012

There are no cons to this amp. The pros: Easy installation, has enough power for what I need it for and it looks great. I would recommend this product if you have a small car as you don't need a 1000 watt amp unless your in a band or running a pa system.

Alright Product

April 12, 2010

When I first installed this amp I had a dead channel from the start, but the other three channels that worked sounded great and was a definite improvement over the stock sound.

For the price you cant beat this amp. I installed it almost 4 months ago and it still works and sounds excellent powering my 4 pioneer 6x8 premiere speakers. As mentioned by another reviewer it does run hot.

Great little amp.

November 1, 2012

I have a 2003 Bonneville SLE. The stock system in it was lack luster. However, I put Polk Audio speakers in the front doors and pioneer 6X9's in the rear deck and it helped, but the punch and clarity at high volume just wasn't there. I decided to amp my system. This amp is great. It is easy to use, was rather easy to install (did it myself), and it's been over 6 months now and it has never skipped a beat. I like to blast my music, and even in the summer months it has never ran hot. The 6X9's bass is much better and the highs are clearer too. The 6.5 inch door speakers really pound now and they rarely distort. I would recommend it. :)

Good amp for for the money!

August 28, 2012

This replaced a factory amp with factory speakers. Easy to install and works fine. Good for stock type applications - I have a GM monsoon that had a stock amp -where you are not pushing the speakers too hard - blasting days are over for me. I would recommend it as a good value stock repacement.

Nice amp! Clean sound, decent for the money.

May 15, 2011

Definitely an improvement in sound quality over my cheap head units "50x4" internal amp, makes the highs sound better, and more power in the bass as well. Louder and overall a cleaner sound then before, except deep bass is more distorted than my internal head unit, but most likely because of the more power being delivered than my stock door speakers can handle, a built in variable high-pass crossover would solve that problem, but then again this is best used for aftermarket speakers anyways For improving the sound of stock speakers this is not a bad choice, it's power output is perfect for the stock speakers.

April 10, 2011

I am using this amp to power a set of tweeters on the front pillars and a set of small 4" speakers behind the 3rd row seat in my expedition. The expedition already has for four 5x8"s in the four doors and a rear sub-woofer from factory that sounded fair but didn't hit the highs very well. Also the 3rd row passengers could not hear as well as everyone else when playing dvds.... this amp rounded out my setup just right !!!
