Power Specifications - Full Range Channels

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 speakers or subwoofers 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.

70 watts x 4 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 speakers or subwoofers 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.

100 watts x 4 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 speakers or subwoofers equals 1 ohm, 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.

Not Stable
Bridged RMS 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 RMS power created once an amplifier is bridged.

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.
5
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.

900 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 Bridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
4 ohms
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.
No
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)
High-Pass (HP)
Full (AP)
Subsonic
High-Pass Crossover Frequency
The high-pass crossover frequency can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable high-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies above the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies below 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 - 4,000 Hz
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 - 4,000 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/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 2 
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 all in one amp

July 29, 2012

This amp is fantastic, power is true as advertised and the sub section is stable to 1 ohm. It's really tiny and fits perfectly under the seat of my 2013 Mazda CX-5. I have it running off an audiocontrol LC6i and powering my OEM speakers for now and a single 12" MB Quart PS3 sub at 4 ohms. I get a clean, noise free signal from my factory head unit. Everything on the amp seems solid, and it's marine certified so you can use it in a jeep or a boat as well. It is capable of running all 5 channels off a single pair of RCA's if needed which makes installation very flexible. The included bass boost knob is great and there is a green light on it that is on when the amp is on. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and would definitely buy this amp again.

Small Amp with lots of power!

December 7, 2011

I got this as a gift to replace another 5ch amp not worth mentioning (CEA rated amps are really worth getting). Enough power to run 2 sets of Polk db6501 components and 2 10" Polk MM subs in a 1.2ci sealed box. Just make sure to tune your amp and you'll get loud clean distortion free music out of this little thing. I would highly recommend this if you're in the market for a 5ch amp.

Great amp, clean sound, compact

June 1, 2015

In Toyota king cab pickup, mated to NVX door and rear speakers and Kicker loaded 10" (dual 2 ohm driver) sub that fits nicely behind driver. Once frequency crossovers were properly tuned and levels adjusted--wow! Great sound--Rock, funk, jazz (horns, cymbals, real drums, etc). Tight punchy bass, nice ringing highs with low distortion. I rewired the sub from 4 to 1 ohm to take full advantage of the amp, and limited the voltage to ensure my kids don't blow the speaker!

Instruction manual is weak--needs better section on proper amp setup. When you plug in the Subwoofer level adjust, you need to turn it up to 50% or so to begin to hear anything. Or, first leave it unplugged from the amp, set your max levels, then plug it in. If the adjuster is left turned all the way down (as mine came) you'll get NO SOUND out of the subwoofer channel. Neither the Polk nor the SonicE tech's knew to do this during our "debug" sessions! Silly, in hindsight. 3 stars for durability only because I haven't had it long enough to know.

Best 5 channel ever owned

October 21, 2015

Absolutely as powerful as it states. I am using Focal components with this unit and a Memphis M3 12 at 2ohms. I am also using a capacitor and have nondoubt that this single all in one amp is top notch quality fairly small packge. Only hassle was mounting it. Clumsy design for screws. I ended up using 2.5 inch wood screws tonreach through corner mounts. Very happy...i have had other 5 channels before and had many issues...first time I've been happy with an all in one unit!

Great AMP, running in Boat

June 25, 2016

I purchased this amp to replace a old amp. WOW, the Class D technology is worth every penny. I am running four 7.5" wake tower, two 10" subs, two 5.25 wake tower, six tweeters. Disclaimer, all the speakers are high efficiency speakers meaning they don't take allot to be loud. No distortion, extremely loud. I cannot believe so much power from such a small amp.

I WAS PREVIOUSLY RUNNING A POWERBASS 1100.5, IN MY 1992 HONDA ACCORD EX... IT KEPT OVERHEATING, AND GOING INTO PROTECTION MODE... I NEEDED A CLASS D AMP TO PROVIDE RELIABLE SERVICE... I PURCHASED A POLK AUDIO PAD5000.5 FROM AMAZON... IT LASTED ABOUT 3 MONTHS, BEFORE THE LEFT REAR CHANNEL WENT OUT... I WAS STUCK WITH A BAD AMP, BECAUSE I DIDN'T PURCHASE IT FROM AN AUTHORIZED RETAILER... AFTER FINDING OUT THAT SONIC ELECTRONIX WAS AN AUTHORIZED POLK AUDIO RETAILER, I QUICKLY ORDERED A NEW AMP... NOW, I HAVE THE PERFECT AMP TO COMPLETE MY SETUP, WITH THE ASSURANCE OF WARRANTY COVERAGE... THE AMP ARRIVED IN ABOUT 2 DAYS, AND THE SHIPPING WAS FREE... THANKS AGAIN, SONIC ELECTRONIX!!!...

Can I run a 1/0 gauge wire to this?
Jordan on Jun 20, 2016
Best Answer: Spec says 4 awg. An adapter can be used to allow 0000 awg but it does not come with it.
Look for the manual to check it out. I think you have to contact PA about the adapter or use some other adapter.

Would this be a good AMP for a 2008 Mustang with the Shelby front door subs rated at 2 ohms and 4 Pioneer TS-D6802R speakers at 4 ohms, stock shaker head unit for now?
Most likely a Kenwwod Headunit

Best Answer: Hello Jim,

The amp is great for ANY vehicle. However, you cannot run any amplifier with a different impedance front channel to channel. A solid amplifier like this one will work, but it will Dramatically decrease the life of the amp.
