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.

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 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.

1200 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
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.
<0.1%
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.
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)
Subsonic
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 - 220 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
20 - 38 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.
105 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).
No
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
40A 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.
No
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.
Not Tested
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

Great Amp!

September 11, 2013

Purchased this for my boat wakeboard speakers to upgrade the output over the existing arc audio 5 channel amp. Running 2 channel mode (~ 300 watts) and has way more power than I need! Extremely well built, small footprint, and barely gets warm in use. Also much more efficient (less power draw for the same amount of noise compared to class A/B) so as not to run down the batteries quickly. Liked it so much I bought the Monoblock sister amp for the sub!
Cons: wire gauge adapter advertised didn't come with either amps and was told they stopped providing them.

This amp sounded Amazing!!

August 2, 2013

this amp sounded good but it wasn't loud for my dual l5 subs.

pros: looks and feels rock solid. high s/n ratio. never got hot @ 1 ohm.

cons: draws power!! 44hz bass boost frequency was weird.
did not come with the power ground gauge adapter as advertised.

i returned this because it wasn't what i was expecting.

Monoblock Amazing

November 3, 2011

Highly recommended! Very small footprint. Running incredibly cool given I have it enclosed in a spare tire well with another D series amp and its running at 1 Ohm. After 2 hours of hard hitting 2 12" Polk SR DVC's its still barely warm! Amazing really. Hits HARD and CLEAN. Used some Five Finger Death Punch to see just how well it and the SR's can keep up and not sound muddy and I was very very pleased. Look wonderful with the blue LED's atop. Very nice and heavy duty wire connection for up to 1/0 cable. Cant say enough good things about this new addition to the Polk line. Buy it, you will NOT regret it.
Oh and the remote bass knob is icing on the cake, so nice to just be able to tweak down some of those hard hitting mixes you were not expecting.

August 1, 2012

i bought this amp because the one i had before it wasn't powerful enough and just wasnt good, this amp is by far the best i've ever had and all of my friends keep asking me where i got it and what the model is because it sounds so crisp and really can rattle the car whenever i want to. I have had no problems at all with it and was able to install it myself, which means it's pretty simple. If you want amazing audio, buy this amp

This amp is overall really good, i am a big fan of plk audio and their products. i have this amp at 4ohms putting out 500watts rms on a infinty reference 124 sub and it takes it no problem. just one thing to remember is if you ever do decide to overpower a sub like that is to always set your gains less than you would normally

I am running 4 8" kicker comp r and this amp is absolutely perfect for what I wanted out of a monoblock! I am extremely happy with what this amp puts out and I'm especially happy with how simple it was to install due to its compact size and ease of terminals. Highly recommend this amp. It's says 1200 watts rms but after testing it I got about 1300. Excellent value as well. Other amps putting out the same power were much more pricey so the value of $199 was too good to pass up

February 29, 2016

I have this amp hooked up tona pair of Polk mm1240 subwoofers with a belva 2 farad capacitor in line to prevent battery drain. This amp has no problem providing the power these subs crave, despite being "rated" at 50 Watts lower than the subs' cumulative RMS request. Plus it's always nice to have a universal look/brand for your whole system.

I needed a physically smaller amp to mount in a tight place and keep the same power i had.

I need one amp to power a pair of db10dvcs and db8dvcs. Will I have problem at 2 ohms ? Will I have an issue with one pair rated at 27orms and one at 180rms ? I was debating a pair of pa880s. but they might not fit.

Best Answer: The cumulative power is there, but as a general rule I've always stayed away from mixing power ratings on the same channel. The PA D1000.1 is a mono block amp, meaning that even though it has 2 sets of speaker terminals, they're actually wired in parallel internally, so they're the same channel. You would be better off with either 2 amps or at least a 2 channel amp.

Best Answer: Hi Donny,

Are you referring SPECIFICALLY to the Polk Audio PA D1000.1 and Kicker 43CWR82?

"i have a polk audio monoblock" and "4 8'' Kicker Compr subwoofers" really generalizes your questions, so we want to be sure we are on the same page.

is this amp able to power 2 polk mm1240dvc subs with ease?
graham c on Apr 8, 2015
Best Answer: If both subs are wired at 1ohm the amp will provide 600 rms watts to each sub which should be plenty of power.
