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.

1800 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.

2500 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 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.
Anarchy (Planet Audio)
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.

5000 watts
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)
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.

Thankx to andrew....and planet audio

May 24, 2012

Had some issues with r/b amps. With Andrew's help, and a little more money, I am very impressed with his customer service skills. Thanks again, Andrew!!!! As for the amps, I am running one on each of my 15" mofo subs, and now it is hitting twice as hard as it did with the Boss Phantoms. P.S. Don't run the r/b Phantoms 5000d under a 2 ohm load. They just can't handle it, and again, I have to say thanks to Andrew for hooking me up with these Planet Audio 5000.1d amps for a good price. I will be calling you again, Andrew.

Thanks sonic electronics for making it easy and affordable! My amplifiers were tested at 1ohm @ 14.8 volts and mines are doing 4187 watts and 4193 watts! My planet audio ac 5000.1 d's are awesome!

I got this amp back in Oct. of 2013, it lasted about a month & a half, before it started going in & out of protection mode! I have it hooked up to 2 12" American Bass XFL. It was hitting hard; way better than my last set-up. But anyways, I returned it to where I got it from for a new with no problem & I'm right back beating! After reading some of the reviews, I guess I'm not the only one that this has happened to. But other than that, it seems to be a good amp for the money & does power my subs!! Hopefully you get one that doesn't blow in a month or so & can write a better review but for the price it will power whatever you're trying to push!!

great amp for the money

December 9, 2013

Well let me start off by saying if you are looking for 5000 watts do not buy this amp. It is 5000max not rms. But when making a purchase like this u should do your homework and know these things. Now to the amp its self. This amp is great for me I was looking for 3000rms at 1ohm. And it does that all day long. It beats my two planet audio bb2400 12" Subs hard. I gave it only two stars on ease of use and durability because the first one I bought completely blew up on me after a month. It poped and filled my truck with smoke and the back fed and blew up my remote turn on on my deck. But I knew some had done that before I bought it so I returned it which was a breeze at sonic electronix. And now I've got one that works and I love it . I had mine clamped and it is doing 3280 watts at 1ohm and I couldn't be happier . Because I wasn't looking for 5000watts just at least a solid 2500watts so im super pleased .

Impressed!

December 5, 2013

I bought this amp (Planet Audio ac5000.1d) to power my 15.4 Orion HCCA. i didn't think it could move the monster sub but it did amazingly well. It wasn't cheap because i had to buy 2 XS Power 3400d batteries so my lights in my car wouldn't dim plus the 0 gauge wire. Once you have the power for the amp, I highly recommend this amp. Had it for about 3 or more months and still no problems and running strong. With Sonic Electronix's fast shipping it only took 2 days to show up on my front porch. So thank you Sonic Electronix!

Have it running 2 750 watt rms ppi ph10s and have it about a quarter of the way on with no boost running at 2 ohms and this thing pushes all the power they can handle and then some. Is it Huge name box store NO, is it by far as good with half the price heck ya....
