General Features

Type of Inverter
This is the way in which the power inverter will convert the power.

AC to DC: Converts common household AC power to DC Power.

DC to AC: Converts DC power to the common household AC power. Often times these converters can be plugged into the vehicles cigarette lighter.

AC to DC
Sine Wave
A true sine wave inverter will convert the power produced by your vehicle in a true sine wave. This allows for a cleaner power output with less distortion and will allow larger items like appliances to run cooler and quieter. A modified since wave inverter will not convert the power from your car and are typically only suited for smaller items such as fans or lights. If you're planning on hooking up items such as laptops/computers, game consoles or appliances, you want to use a true sine wave inverter.
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if a power inverter generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the inverter from overheating (burning).
Low Battery Shutdown
When the voltage in the vehicle drops below a certain point, the inverter will automatically shut itself off so prevent the vehicle battery from dying.

Great Product,,,,,,,,,many uses,,Excellant

July 4, 2012

I have aquired three Kinetik-power supply/charger units, one 80 amp unit and two 60 amp units. The 80 amp looks after my garage Alpine deck and amps, one 60 A for battery charging and biodiesel heating(12vdc) and another 60 A for all garage LED 12vdc lighting and gennie heating pads for the fuel tank,oil pan and electronic and relay power control . The units are attractive, well designed and just work great.
Sonic prices are alway resonable and fast, efficient delivery. Being also off-grid these units give us way more flexibility for power output with so many variations if needed.

I have added 3 Shuriken BT-100s and an Irragi 320 amp HO alt for my big audio system. I am running 2 DD9500 12's with a Sundown Audio SAZ 4500 amplifier as well as a Memphis 8" component set with Mclass 6x9 coaxials speakers with an Alpine PDX-4.100 and will be adding this product very shortly to help keep my system running healthy. If your lookin for a lil extra juice at competitions (as I will be) keeping your batts topped off! I have seen many of these in competition cars and am looking foward to adding this to my whip!

Awesome! Get's the job done!

August 31, 2012

I bought this for my home setup, because I was using a ATX PC PSU and that wasn't bringing enough power to my Rockford fosgate and Power acoustik amps + a Pioneer deck. (only 12.2v @ 20amps) So, I decided to spend some money on a PSU that can handle that demand, and i am Very impressed! Lots of clean power for my setup. Even bought a voltage reader and it's usually between 13.6-14.0 volts while bumpin music and sometimes it even goes up to 14.8 v. The lowest iv'e seen the thing go was 13.3 v while jamimg very hard! Thinking about getting another one for a new 1000 - 1500 watt mono block amp and battery charging.

So far so good.

August 20, 2015

More than happy with this purchase. Found the exact same one cheaper so Sonic honored that price. Free shipping! I use this unit to power the two Alpine amps and Kenwood head unit I installed in my house. Altogether the amps are running approx 500 watts and the 80 Amp is more than handling the job. No noise or whine and the fan is whisper quiet.

research showed me that it would be a must in a duel battery system.
john s on Sep 4, 2014
I have four Kinetik 2000 batteries in my system. One of the features listed is the ability to charge multiple batteries. I have the ability to isolate all four. How would I connect this unit to them individually at the same time?

Best Answer: I have 5 kinetik pro 2400 batteries on my boat. Mine are daisy chained so I put the charging cables on the end battery. Hope this helps.

Would this unit be a good choice to power two amps and a head unit, all of which total a power consumption of 80 amps?
michael c on Dec 17, 2014
Best Answer: I've run it on a 5 channel amp and a head unit for a total load of 75 amps. So I would think it should be fine. You can always put a battery in line to eleviate the load.

Am I able to exceed the amount if using a battery in-line with the power supply? The amount of amperage will be 90 amps, 91 amps exactly.
