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.

Peak Power @ 4 ohms
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. However, some manufacture's do not provide an RMS figure and therefore one cannot be advertised.

Bridged Peak/Max Power

Bridging refers to combining two channels on an amplifier to create one channel with double the voltage and an increased power output. A 2-channel amplifier will bridge down to 1-channel and a 4-channel amplifier can bridge to create 2-channels. An amplifier is most commonly bridged to drive a subwoofer.

Remember, once you bridge two channels down to one its final impedance will be 4 ohms unless otherwise specified. This rating lists the Peak/Max power created once an amplifier is bridged.

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.
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.

1600 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.

800 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.
4 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
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.
No
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.

40 - 180 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
17 - 50 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.
90 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.
0 - 12 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.
Yes
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).
Yes
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
30A x 3 
Strappable
Some amplifiers can be "strapped" together in order to increase the output of a single audio channel. These amplifiers feature RCA preamp outputs, allowing you to pass the signal directly from one amp to the other to ensure consistency.
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.

No
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.
Amp Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature will tell you if the amplifier has the capability to connect to a Bluetooth device.

get this amp

November 8, 2013

i have had this amp for about a year now been powering 2 sundown e12 d4 at 1ohm with 4ga power and ground wires amp has never shut off or even got hot (even in the summer time and i live in FL )amp puts out good clean power if set right

CONS: seting knobs on amp are a bit hard to get set right as the are no numbers on them to tell you where the amp is set (LFP)rca connect on other side then power wire witch makes custom install harder


PROS: never gets hot/shuts off and has great sound if used with correct power and ground size (4ga )

Not a $*** amp

January 30, 2013

At this price I feel guilty. I think RE is selling the remaining stock of yesterdays product line to make way for their new series, hence the price. My old amp, MTX RFL600D, went out and I needed something to replace it. I have a 12" Alpine Type R in a sealed box running at 2 Ohms. I was a little worried beacuse this amp has 40 watts less than my old amp, but this amp delivers. I am more into good sounding bass, not trying to set off car alarms and this amp delivers. I mostly listen to dubstep, hence the need for a sub. This amp seems to play more frequencies than any amp I have ever had, I have had 4. Some of the amps I had just kinda burped, not really playing music, but I was pushing subs that were in a ported box, so I am not sure if that is a fair comparison. This amp comes with a remote, the wire is plently long. The amp has more adjustemnt knobs than I am used to, so I guess that is good.

CON: The only negative I can think of 1 week into my ownership of the amp, is that the hookup are on seperate sides of the amp. Makes the instalation somewhat awkward in my car and I need to get longer cables.

Again, for $*** green men you cant go wrong.

Great AMP

December 22, 2012

Was a little skeptical about this amp due to the price and the lack of CEA-2006 compliant but I bought it for my brother and wow I was amazed. US Amps is now RE audio and they are damn good. Wired it to a Kicker CompVR 12 DVC4 on a 2ohm load. Overpowering I know but the amp is a good build, its compact enough but drives the hell out of the kicker in a ported box. I would definitely recommend anyone to buy this amp I am gonna get one for myself. I have been familiar with the car audio scene for over 10 years and have owned different amps. Jl audio, kicker, JBL, RF, and more. Doesn't get hot and delivers real power tested at around 525W RMS on a 2ohm load. A good buy.

Good Amp

December 16, 2012

This is a pretty good amp. I had it hooked up with 2 Rockford Fosgate 12" subs rated at 400 Watts RMS each and it handled them really good. the amp would heat up a lot though. but then I changed my subs to 2 12" Orion's rated at 500 Watts RMS each, and after a month of playing those my amp blow. so I don't recommend buying this amp if your system is going to be over 800 Watts RMS.

AMAZING AMP!

June 18, 2012

Words cannot begin to describe how great this amp is. Of course RE Audio is an amazing brand anyways but when we hooked it up we played it all night long never got hot or anything. One guy at an audio store told us that re audio must be an off brand i laughed so hard and walked out and we blasted it and it shook the store haha we were running two 12" pioneers, ts w309d4's, in a custom box i built to 37 hz we also shook someones car mirror so bad they couldnt see and they were 3 cars behind us. Overall very pleased and a must buy.

Decent Inexpensive Amp

May 31, 2012

I am basing this review on what I know about sound systems (which isn't much) and my personal experience with this amp. I didn't personally install it or tune it, but I know that its a darn good amp. Tuned properly, you can get that perfect balance of bass that is necessary for a great car audio sound. I would have to say my favorite part of this amp package is the fact that you get a bass adjustment knob with it that you can wire anywhere inside your vehicle. I have it mounted on my side of the console in my truck and it's super convenient to not have to go into the stereo's settings to adjust bass. Again, I don't do competitions, I know next to nothing about car audio, but this amp works perfect for my needs and I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

I completely underestimated this amp. I have a pair of DXi 104 dvcs, and this amp kicks the s@it out of the ( in a good way ). The amp stays cool as can be, didn't expect it to be hot considering the gain is only turned up 3/8ths of the way. I bought some other products along with this amp, & I'm completely satisfied with my purchases.

Best amp for the price

January 5, 2013

I got this to power my alpine type r 15" with 6 gauge power and ground wire and this thing does do as it says and can take a 1 ohm load. I have the gain about half way and the bass boost about 1/4 and it makes this 750 watt rms sub pound. I have this amp chained from a 4 channel amp. Also whenever I get done with a drive I like to go to the trunk and touch the amp. The amp as never once broke a sweet and hasn't even gotten warm. (It is about 40-45 degrees F outside though). All in all it is just a great amp and best for the money and power and it matches this sub very well because the rms wattage are almost the same on both.

Pushing 2 Infinity Kappa Perfect 12.1D's in a Suburban. Put in a Probox and someone didnt believe I had 2 12's, they insisted I had 2 15's. Rattles everything, have a 2 Farad Tsunami cap from here ($70) and my lights only dim on idle at 500RPM which is expected.. Other than that the power draw is not crazy and it has a fan underneath it which keeps it super cool, can barely tell a heat difference from when its sat and when its on. GREAT AMP. Plan on getting the 4 channel with the same look next

Well, I recently bought 2 Infinity Kappa Perfect 12.1D's. I called C********* and they recommended a Kenwood 9105D for the setup. After running the amp for an hour the stupid thing fried. C*********** tried giving me hell saying I didnt have it wired right blah blah blah even though I talked to tech support while wiring it. I then bought a Hifonics Zxi200.2 from here and one of the channels did not work. Called tech support and the guy said no problem, send it back and they would get me another. I didnt really want another Hifonics because I have heard they arent all that good.. so I went with the RE. It is so far the best amp I have had. Doesnt get hot like the Hifonics, and is still going after an hour unlike the Kenwood. Great deal on here too

This is an excellent amp for the price range. Installed in 92 Explorer day after X-mas. Driving an Infinity 860W. Provides plenty of power, and for an 8" sub, packs a punch. Well built, aluminum case and heatsink. Not plastic. Not an earbusting window rattler, nor a competition winner, just makes for good listening. Only 1 con...throw the provided mounting screws away and get good quality sheet metal/wood screws depending on application. Provided screws are extremely soft and will round out. I mounted mine to a bracket constructed from poplar and rounded out 1 phillips head during installation. Will have to take some vise grips to remove and replace. Less than a buck to fix, just patience to not damage finish.

I couldn't tell any difference in sound quality from this amp to the jl amp that was double the price. It is powering a 12 w3 and it sounds great.
