JBL MS-A5001

Sophisticated crossover functions

Each of the MS-A5001’s outputs can be low-pass, high-pass or band-pass (low and high) filtered. You can choose among 97 different crossover points between 20Hz and 20kHz, and select crossover slope rates of 6dB, 12dB and 24dB per octave. For further flexibility, crossover settings are completely independent for each output.

DSP technology

The MS-A5001 uses digital signal processing (DSP) for all input-mixer, crossover and output-level controls. Compared with analog crossover circuitry, DSP circuits produce extremely precise results with a minimum of audible artifacts.


Connects to any analog signal

The MS-A5001 features RCA-to-bare-wire adapters to connect to all line-level and speaker-level inputs, and includes a selector switch for matching the amp’s input to the type of signal that it receives.

JBL MS-A5001

Digital input mixer

The MS-A5001’s digital input mixer simplifies configuration by allowing any input signal to be routed to either speaker output.


The Sound of quality

Sonic Electronix, one of the leaders in car audio, recently visited Harman, the premium global audio and infotainment group, at their research and development locations in Northridge, California and Detroit, Michigan. The purpose of these visits was to utilize and combine the powerful brand of Harman and the industry leading knowledge behind Sonic Electronix to begin working together on developing future car audio projects.

*The Sonic Electronix Certified Power Ratings listed are based on a test of a specific sample amplifier. Actual power ratings may slightly vary between amps.

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.
500 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.

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.
MSA (JBL)
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 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.

500 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.
8 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.
1%
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.
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.

20 - 270 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/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.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
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.
40A 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.

Yes
Sonic Certified Amplifier
Sonic Certified amplifiers have been tested by the experts at Sonic Electronix to meet or exceed the wattage ratings provided by the manufacturer. If this is marked as Yes, then you can trust the wattage ratings. If marked as No, then we have tested the amplifier and it did not meet the advertised wattage ratings. If marked as Not Tested, then the Sonic Electronix experts have not yet been able to test the amp.

Serious power, I love the amp for the value

January 14, 2015

I paired this with two 10" GTO JBL 528 subs wired in parallel, 4 ohm, and it hits so freaking hard, my jeep bounces! Seriously, this is a great amp for the cost. I also own JL Audio and can't tell the difference.

Nice Amplifier!

September 11, 2014

I am using this for a pair of Pioneer TS-W260S4 subwoofers and a Kenwood Excelon 998 in a 2003 F-150.

This was a huge improvement over the OEM installation, and I am really enjoying the punch that these deliver!

The installation and setup of the amplifier went well enough without any major issues.

great little amp

February 17, 2015

The shipping was fast and packaged appropriately. The only minor inssue I ran into during installation was the remote input. The input had a 1.5 hex instead of 2.5, so the supplied Allen wrench wouldn't fit. I would suggest reading the book a couple of times b4 setup. I have it pushing a Fi Audio X10 in a 1.3 ported enclosure tuned at 33hz. It sounds better than when I had the kicker zx750.1 pushing it. I'll have to update this review once I have it for awhile to give opinion on durability.

When I saw this amp and read up on it I had to have it. It's a lot of bang for the buck. Setup is scary simple. The digital circuitry and class D design is clean and second to none. I have this paired with a JBL P1224 in a ported box and it is much louder than I expected. Very nice.

December 27, 2014

Purchased this amp for the features. Upon arrival, it did not work. I hooked up my Kicker and completely forgot about it. Sonic has a great warranty, so I sent it back- even after the warranty had expired. They gave me another even, so I hooked it up and mounted it on the box, as my box has an amp rack. I blew the screen. It still works great but I can't change anything on the amp as I cant see what I am doing without the digital display. Shame on me for that one!

Does this include remote control for bass and volume?
Mnnmat on Feb 11, 2015
Best Answer: Hi,

The MS-A5001 does NOT ship with a Remote. However, the JBL MS-WBC is the compatible remote for it. Unfortunately, we no longer carry, it is discontinued, and we aren't sure where you will be able to find one. However, we suggest taking the model number and doing a quick search. In the even you do not find one, we suggest going with a Universal Remote Level Control, which may very well be the best/practical option anyway. We us the NVX XBRC in our Install Bay when faced with such a scenario.

Does this mean that it has a built-in line out converter?
Ryan D on Dec 22, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, There is a pair of RCA output from this amp and you could connect another mono amp from that output. So, for example, all you'll need is a pair of RCA from your head unit sub woofer output into one amp, then another RCA from that amp output RCA into the other amp input RCA. Hope that help and make sense.
