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.

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.

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.

2100 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
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.

Can't go wrong

November 15, 2014

I have a pair of alpine 12 rs and my girlfriend loves them. So I got her this and a alpine 12 r wired to one ohm. I was scetchy about the buy because I've never heard of this company, but for 100 bucks.. 3000w (roughly) at one ohm it made me think. The reviews blew me away so I tried it. This amp pushes her sub very well. Its very comparable to my system running a crunch amp at 2000w. Needless to say I'm blown away by this amp. Slick design and it hits hard. I'm buying myself one also to replace the crunch amp. I just have to (4000w model probably) Can't pass up the price but most importantly the output of sound. You just Dont hear it with this one you feel it. Great great buy!!

May 29, 2015

Seem to be an ok product however i dont think the 1/0 cable is necessarily needed. Maybe its the subs i dont know at the momment. I believed that when i purchased this it would push my subs and have great sound. I do not believe that it pushes my subs to there limit, and the sound is not what i expected. But maybe i have some adjusting to do. I plan on putting my ohmmeter on it this weekend to see what is going on.

Buy this amp and you will be so happy you did!

December 1, 2014

I have been using Planet Audio Amps in my sub woofer set-ups for more than 4 years and I am glad I tried them because I have bought and used more expensive brands and they really are not one bit better as far as sound quality and wattage goes. Plus for the money per wattage you cannot go wrong, unless you buy something cheaper then you get what you paid for. Stick with Planet Audio and save some hard earned $$$ for other sound items. I have 2- AC2600.2 units, one in each of my vehicles one pushing 2- 12s in a bandpass box that SLAMS! And another one replaced a fried Hifonix Brutus X-14 2200 D Class amp powering 2- NVX VCW124s in a X-large Q-bass box and honestly it hits so much harder,clearer and cleaner and they are only class AB amps! I tried the AC3000.1 unit on a 1000W RMS 18" Custome built 10ft3 home subwoofer box and I cannot even use all of the power at a 4 Ohm load (2 - 2 Ohm DVC wired in series). And another 3000.1 unit on another custom built 7ft3 home subwoofer 15" 800W RMS -also wired similar in series for a 4 Ohm load total and it still has headroom! The same power from a rackmount unit would have easily been double $$$ so I am very happy with these amps and plan on buying More!

2 of these pushed my 4 Kicker L7 12's to 4th place out of 206 systems in a SPL competition in Sioux Falls, SD. I will back this amp and Planet Audio up forever. I've sold and installed their products for 5 years now, and I've never had a customer complain.

The dude with the L7's, I would suggest multimetering your wiring, and see if the ohms are correct. You may have it wired to 8 or 4 on accident. If the wiring's good, and you're not satisfied, make sure you've got at least 2.5 cu. ft. per sub in your box, or they probably aren't getting enough air.

If that's all good, then the Hifonics Brutus 1700.1 powers 2 L7 12's perfectly. I've got a Hifi Brutus 1200.1 on a Fi SSD 12 in my car, and they're good amps. I've sold them in many systems. They're better than Planet Audio by a long shot. They're just $30 more for the same wattage. 2 L7's competition rating is 900W each continuous, too. So, keep that in mind when the time comes to upgrade your amp.

Chose this amp because of the options for impedance matching. Offers great RMS power handling for multiple different drivers.

I need a new amplifier and read the reviews and most of them were very positive so I decided to order.

I had a big Profile amp on top of a sub box which held 2, 12 inch Audiobahn subs. I wanted some of my trunk room back so I down sized to a single 12 in sub and this Planet Audio amp. Small, compact, good power.

how can i mount the ac3000,1d to my speaker box? do i drill screws through the enclosure?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2015
Best Answer: Hello ,

Besides the fact you are DRILLING into your enclosure, we highly recommend finding an alternate location to mount your amplifier because it can be more precarious than it is convenient. Carpet does a very bad job of dissipating heat Away from the source; The source here being the amplifier. Unless you get clever with the use of Spacers, the carpet may cause harm in the long run, but even if you use spacers the next issue is more concerning. Moreover, in high power systems the Enclosure will FLEX/Bend, and will flex/bend anything that is on it. I'm sure it goes without saying, a flexing/bending amplifier is probably not a good thing. Please plan accordingly.

What is the RMS wattage at 2ohms in real world application? Im assuming that the manufacturer specs are overstated.
A shopper on Nov 3, 2014
Best Answer: BUYER BEWARE!
You are right my friend! The specs are way over rated, over by 2000watts. Tested with a sound dyno @ 1 ohm it read 479 before clipping. Didnt do any better @ 2 ohms. They must not know RMS or Planet Audio is not having success with this amplifier.
Nice try planet Audio go back to the drawing board!!!

what speaker works well with this amp?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

That depends on how much power you wish to push from the amp. We are partial to going with a 2ohm setup, which - if the specs are true - means 1500 watts @ 2 ohms , from this amp.
You also didn't specify a size, budget, or brand preference, but the specs would have us partial to the NVX VCW102 .

I have 2 questions, Phase shift selector, what does it do? Input voltage sensitivity selector switch, what does it do as well?
Radar on Oct 31, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Rodney,

Phase Shift - changes the polarity of the outputs. Think of this as "pushing the sound backwards", instead of Out it goes In. There is more to this, but it will get confusing. Simply put, this changes the sound to match the Stage of your project. This will likely NOT be used.

Input Sensitivity - This is meant to match the Sensitivity of your headunit. If your headunit's PreOuts are 4v, then the switch needs to match that. If you have an entry level headunit, then unfortunately your PreOuts are sub-2v and will need help, so that is why the switch is there.
