American Audio V4001 PLUS DJ Amp

Offering DJs and pro audio installers increased power and more features for their dollar, American Audio's exciting V4001 Plus power amp replaces the older V4000 Plus. The rackmountable V4001 cranks out massive wattage, with a maximum output power rating of 3,000W. In addition to significantly improved power handling, the V4001, is built with better safety circuits as well. Loaded with DC Output protection, overload protection, short circuit protection, on & off protection and turn-on thump protection, they are virtually fry-proof and greatly reduce the risk of electric shock to sound reinforcement engineers, DJs and onstage performers.

It boasts signs of higher intelligence as well: American Audio has designed the amplifier to include a rear-panel contractor smart switch that disables the front-panel knobs once they've been set to their proper levels. When the switch is engaged, front-panel amp volume settings cannot be monkeyed with, providing further protection against system feedback and speaker overload. The V4001 Plus power amp also features a recessed rear panel that makes it easier to plug in connecting cables when the amp is installed on a rack.

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.

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.
100 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the amplifier will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
Input Sensitivity
This is the input sensitivity of the amplifier.
THD (Total Harmonic Distortion)
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.
Voltage Gain
This is the voltage gain of the amplifier measured in decibels.
Cooling Options
These are the different cooling systems used in the amplifier to keep it cool.
Inputs
These are the type of input connections that the amplifier has.
Outputs
These are the types of output connections that the amplifier has.
