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.
200 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 speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) 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. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
400 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.
800 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.
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 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.

800 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.

400 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.
0.03%
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.

40 - 240 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.
80 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 - 12 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.

Yes
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.

Wow!

July 21, 2011

This amp is very VERY nice! It goes perfectly with the two 12" Pioneer TS-W309S4's that I also bought for a bargain from Sonic Electronix. I don't know how they provide such a great deal but they do. I have the gain set to Normal with the subs in a custom sealed box and the bass amped up to 12dbs on the amp. Huge upgrade over the 340watt 150rms Jensen amp I was previously using. Thanks Pioneer and Sonic Electornix. Also I'm getting these items next day!

Not bad, not bad at all

September 1, 2010

I purchased this because it was on sale and I needed an amp ~800W max/400RMS to power my 12" compVR. I have had this amp in my truck for a few months now with the sub and I have no complaints. The sub hits hard, and I never have to turn it up to near full power on the amp. It does exactly what I needed it to and it stays cool. I have never felt this thing warmer than the ambient air in my truck.

August 23, 2012

While not the most blast-off powerful amp out there, this amp packs a hefty punch, is clean sounding, and stays cool, even at high volumes at a 2 ohm load. Combined with its small size, this allowed me to install the amp behind a plastic panel for a stealth installation.

May 23, 2012

I was a little unsure on how a slimline sub would go in the kick and response division but it's the best subwoofer I've owned by far. The Pioneer GM-D7500M is matched perfectly to the Pioneer TS-SW2501S4. Defiently my choice when space is limited.

Rock Solid Amp that has a good punch

January 4, 2012

A very good amp for the price. NO REGRETS. I run a top end JL audo 10" ported sub in my honda pilot, and this amp rocks the sub. It comes with the remote level adjuster I mounted up front for instant tuning of bass. Buy this amp, you will love it.

BAD A.... LITTLE AMP

November 18, 2011

SIMPLY PUT, THIS AMP IS GREAT. Cant be beat for the price, and even blows away my kicker amps. For the reviewers stateing not designed or overated for 2ohm. They must not know what they are doing. And dont waste money on a cap, with theese pioneers you dont need one. I also own the 9500, theese amps are pushing my kicker subs and 6x9's with no problem. Actualy kicked my kicker amps to the curb, thats how good theese are. They stay cool to the touch. And if you test the power, it will be more than whats advertised. No need to crank up the gain, mine is turned almost all the way down, and the amps still just pound. Best buy and value on the market today. My son is selling his JL audio amps so he can get these.

Perfect for my use.

November 4, 2011

I put this in my 2011 Mustang GT pushing 2 10" Infinitys running free-air mounted between the rear seat and trunk area. Using the stock Shaker 500 system with 4 Kicker 4x6s replacing the stock speakers. I get lots of compliments on the sound and the system is lightweight and I still have a trunk! It would be nice if the bass-boost was variable instead of the 3-position switch, but for the money, great amp!

I would recommend anyone to buy this amp! Remember you always need a mono amp for subs! Don't let anybody tell you any different!

Love it.....

September 13, 2011

I love this amp mainly for 3 reasons. Simplicity, quality, class D. Its compact, easy to mount anywhere. It's pure performance. Install it, and forget it. I have trusted pioneer my entire music loving life, and am happy to see that they have not fallen to the "tween" wayside, so to speak. If you want LED's, and meters and other features that don't relate to sound quality, this might not be the amp for you. I play my music pretty balanced...Not trying to vibrate all the nuts and bolts out of my transportation....This amp has more than I'll ever use consistently...My daughter on the other hand, is determined to agitate everyone on the road, and ultimately blow my subs....lol Love the price, class D....works great for me, no heat, no worries. Considering a 4 channel upgrade....I like the R/F ...might go pioneer..definately class A/B... Depends on the $$$ on hand...lol D7500M was a great choice for me, to drive subs....Totally happy...

August 30, 2011

I used this amp for 6 months before switching to a 5 channel to save some space. Being a "digital" amp it is indeed not very big, but for the price the specs aren't that great. I was running it at 2 ohms and I suspect this amp is overrated at 2 ohms.

This amp is true to the phrase "bang for your bucks." In the past I've never been too high on Pioneer amps but with this one it blew my mind and it is a true 400 watt RMS amplifier. You simply cannot get a better amp for the price, power, and most importantly quality. Pair this up with two Pioneer TS-W303R's or TS-W253R's for a match made in heaven.
