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.
330 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.
560 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 speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 1 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.
800 watts x 1 channels
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage. 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. This is the peak power output for the amplifier's 5th channel.

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.

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 
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.

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.

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 )

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.

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.

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.

Excellent

January 3, 2013

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.
