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.
1200 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.
3000 watts x 1 channels

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 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.

3000 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.

1200 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
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.

50 - 150 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
15 - 40 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.
105 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 2 
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.

Great Amplifier, Great Price!!

October 1, 2010

I purchased this amp after reading the reviews, some good and some bad, but in my opinion, for the price, it is great. It delivers great sound with the right set-up, and looks cool. Very easy to set up, very easy to use, and comes with all the hardware required for your install. I would definitely recommend this amplifier for people wanting quality sounds for a bargain price, many thanks to Sonic Electronix for a first class item and service.

Great little amp...

December 26, 2010

I had this amp now for 2 hours its a great little amp, the only thing I would be cautious about is the rating. I "believe" their RMS is actually peak output so when they claim 1200 watt RMS at 4ohms its more like 600 RMS and the peack is 1200 Watts. Nothing wrong just need to understand the ratings they have since some companies will double the value to claim RMS. Either way at the max claim of 2ohms is 2200 watts RMS which it might be only 1100 watts RMS is still good.

Great Amp

October 29, 2010

I added this amp to my system, as an additional sub amp. I'm running a 12in L5 in a custom enclosure and it sounds great. No issues with set up and looks good. The subwoofer remote switch is a little cheap, but functional. You will not go wrong with this amp, great value for the money.

Superior amp for money spent

October 16, 2013

I have owned two of these amp (EV3000D, EV4000D) and both have been excellent for the price. I am unsure of the true rms, but if run at 1ohm they produced serious power for the money. I can comment on the longevity of this amp under 1 ohm because ours has seen three different cars in 4 years and is still running strong. I would absolutely purchase another one. I have used other 1000.1 amps by brands like Kicker, Alpine and Fosgate and these compare easily to those. Superior Performance for the price

Great value for money

August 8, 2012

I bought a SoundStorm EV3000D 6 months ago and it worked perfectly with my Alpine Type R subwoofer, I would recommend this amp to anyone who wants power at a very affordable price. I sold my car with the whole system and couldn't help myself but buy another one. The only thing I don't like about it, it's fairly noisy when volume is very low (you can hear the fans) considering the value for money you can't look past it.

May 10, 2012

Really like the amp. I just got it 2 weeks ago, and man I tell you, it gives me a headache everytime. I got it pushing 2 12"s l5 on a ported box and the thing is a monster. I would recommend. I am just wondering how long it's going to take to break which I hope it does not. For the price, good deal, looks are ok, overall good amp.

Really good value

March 22, 2012

I've had this amp for almost two years now pushing a 15" and it has been pretty good other than one time. I was just playing dubstep at the usual volume and the amp just stopped working and went into protect mode. (No, I didn't tune the amp myself. Professionally done) I had it fixed by my friend and he had to replace a few capacitors inside and he beefed up the heat sync. (He said the heat syncing wasn't very good) It's been working great ever since and I have no other complaints. It never gets hot to the touch unlike an old amp I used to have; which you could fry an egg on easily. Is it really 3000 watts? Lol no. I don't know where they got that number. My guess would be around 800.

I have had this amp since july and i love it. i get heads turning all day at the cleanest sounding and hardest pounding bass on campus. No matter how long or hard you work this amp it never gets hot. i have hooked up to 2 10" Alpine type-R which are also great if you wanna turn heads when you drive down the road or rattle your own buy this amp it is great and the price really isnt that bad especially here with the year warranty and the free fast shipping Sonic is deffinantly the best place to buy.

cheap and powerful!

February 15, 2011

I bought this on a budget (who wouldn't?) and I was surprised that its one ohm stable, I have it hooked at 2 ohms powering a Boss P126DVC 2300 watt max and it kicks the thing. Honestly I don't think either product is true in their power rating so I have the amp turned all the way up and its not getting hot at all. I believe it would power 2 12's very very nicely, I would recommend.

Good quality amp, used it to power an SPL 15 bridged to 4ohms, worked very well for a month, until I was playing a song that had a lot of highs and it went into protected mode and never came out, contacted SSL and received a return authorization number, had to pay return shipping and am still waiting should be a few more days till i get it back... but I'm glad to know that they would take care of it
