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.

1500 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.

2000 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.

4000 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.

2800 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.

Good amp for the price

June 1, 2014

is a decent amp. I have it on 2 jl audio 12s n I can only turn it 1/4 way up so there's plenty of power there. Has log and subsonic filters. Only con I can think of is the level knob. It doesn't do anything. But I would recommend this amp

Great Amp!

March 19, 2014

Got this thing because my sony 1200 watt blew up and needed a nice sized amp to push my 2 pioneer champion series 10"s. The are DVC and running them in parallel at around 2 ohms and this amp kicks them harder than that sony ever thought about doing. I am very impressed with the performance. I was not expecting much because of the price but I am very pleased. I would recommend this to anyone that needs power on a budget. Only gave it 4 stars for durability because I have only had this thing for about a month.

BUY THIS AMP!

May 16, 2013

I just got this amp in today, and the whole process hookin it up I was skeptical. I have it strapped to (1) 15l7 dual 2ohm. (Kicker) in a custom vented box about 5.0cu. This thing pounds so hard! The local stores are tellin me to turn it down when I pull up. One thing I will say is I think it's over rated. But for $120 you still get 2k watts. Oh by the way I'm wired at 4ohm, I didn't wanna take the chance and blow my sub even though I can go 1ohm.

Very Sad!

September 3, 2012

I loved this amp, the look, the feel, it never once got hot.. even after a 5 hour drive to oregon, and im Pushing two 800 watt subs, so 1600 watts total, i had this amp for 8 months and i was in love with it. then one random day it just stopped working on my way home from work. the power light still comes on. So i thought it was wiring but once i hooked up my old amp my subs were hittin fine. so i tried to hook up my amp to a few of my friends systems.. nothing. All fuses are fine. i took it apart to see if i fried any internal fuses. but i didnt. i have no idea why it just stopped workin. but i even took it to a few shops and they didnt have a clue why it didnt work. so i sadly would say i wouldnt recommend this amp sadly enough. Its a Great Temp amp. but nothing more. If you want an amp that truly pushes 4000 Spend the extra $ i now have an alpine 2000 watt RMS amp and it hits perfectly. just cost me alot more..

Disappointed

August 6, 2012

I had this amp for about 6 months and it's already blown. I think that it doesn't put out the power it says it will. It did ok but it crapped out on me. Can't beat the price though.

Good amp but not great

April 9, 2012

This amp is not putting out the RMS it says. Other sites are posting completley different rms ratings. I bought the ac4000 and the box says 2800 rms @ 1 ohm. I dont think it's even pushing 1000. I have it pushing 2 12" kicker cvx's and it pushes them hard just not as hard as my hifonics I had. Overall its good and reliable, ive been bass'n everyday for about a year now. I will tell you it wont take 0 gauge wire not even 4 awg. And the anarchy light stopped working after a week.

This is a pretty nice amp. Cheap. May not push out it's full RMS but for the price, you can't beat it. Completely destroyed two boss phantom 12's, but I'm okay with that. If price is not an issue, I would recommend the big bang series from planet audio. This amp pushed my subs, and pushed them hard.
