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.

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.

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.
JAD (NVX)
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.
1/0 AWG
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
1 ohms
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 - 320 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.
111 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.
Yes
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

Good clean amp, solid deal for the price.

May 19, 2014

I have had car audio as a hobby for 15 years now and am thoroughly satisfied with these amps and everything else I've acquired from NVX

Pros: Small size (seriously 1/4 the size of a lot of amps,) doesn't get very hot running @ 1 ohm pushing hard, it's quite efficient and not power hungry, good clean power!!!

Cons: The X-over and gain controls are meant to be turned about 2 full revolutions instead of 1/2 revolution. This wasn't a real problem but did catch me quite off guard. The power mounts are standard at 8 ga with an adapter for up to 1/0 ga. I happen to us 1/0 ga and found this to be a little troublesome and silly. Finally, the screw holes and all the speaker and power mounts adjustments must be made through holes in their handle design requiring you to use a rather slender screwdriver, which you may just not have handy at all.

I feel that for the price the pro's of this unit certainly outweigh it's slight drawbacks. I have 2 NVX VCW 12's being pushed by 2 of these amps. I am very pleased with this set as the speakers can hit a wide frequency range while, be pretty loud, and be very clean at the same time. I definitely recommend this amp. The quality isn't far from Sundown or Memphis but the price sure is!

Powerful, Affordable, High Quality Amplifier

October 14, 2014

Great amp.. Small footprint. I have it pushing two NVX VSW104s and it is more than enough. TONS of power. I actually have the gain at less than 50%. The bass knob doesn't function like it should, so I installed a LC-1 and it's perfect! No complaints here. Tons of power and never runs hot. Actually pushes around 1500 watts if turned all the way up.

Small amp...huge power!

August 31, 2014

This amp is tiny, has big power wire terminals, and one ohm mono stable, producing well over 1200 rms all the time.
Doesn't even get hot. NVX is clean and a great value, very low price for big power. Amp is all metal, that speaks for itself regarding quality.
Ask for Wes at sonic electronix for any car audio needs, he's amazing

Very Happy so Far

April 18, 2013

I purchased the JAD800.4 along with a JAD1200.1 to power my Infinity Kappa speakers and MB Quart subs. My first choice was the Infinity Kappa Five amp, but I had problems with two of them and was given a store credit. Second time around I decided to go with two amps (4/1channel) hoping for better performance / reliability.
I read a lot of mixed reviews on Class D amplifiers. Many people think that A/B has better sound quality, while others prefer the small footprint, high power / low heat output of Class D. Being an engineer I reviewed the specs and was very impressed with the signal to noise as well as the THD compared to Class A/B.
NVX is a relatively new brand so I turned to Google and found several good reviews. I was looking at the Polk amps and NVX seems to be very similar, with the controls panels and specs being almost identical (and NVX was in stock).
Out of the box the amps had a solid feel and clean look. They have a soft-start feature that powers them up a few seconds after they get power. This gives you time to start your engine without drawing any current. Very nice.
The sound quality is excellent - better than other A/B amps I had in the past. More than enough power - I haven't even cranked them all the way up yet and don't think I'll ever have to.
I have a second MB Quart 10 RLP on back order because with one sub I was getting distortion before I could feel the bass. It turns out that the Infinity Kappa Five amp was the weak link. The JAD 1200.1 pushes one sub very well.
The only negative I have to say about these amps is that the adjustment dials take a philips screwdriver, and they do not have an arrow or line showing you what it is set to. This made it a little inconvenient to tweak the crossover points.

Very good amp for the money

July 5, 2013

I have had this amp now for 6 months and it is an extremely clean and powerful amp. I have owned amps that I've paid double the price for, that were no where near the quality of this amp. Does not get very hot and hits my 12" Cerwin Vega Hard and Clean. Only issue is the connectors to the speaker are a little difficult to access.

JAD 1200.1 in a boat

March 23, 2015

I bought the 1200.1 to match the other 4 NVX amps in my boat. I bought 2 800.4s to run on my compression horns and have been very impressed with the power out put, the low power consumption and the JAD lines compact dimensions.

Upon install I noticed the same quality that my other JAD amps have, I paired it up with two 10" L7s in a ported box. I hoped that the amp would run well @1 ohm into the ported box. I am under the impression it's underpowering them slightly which is what I feared. I still have to fully tune everything out and woofers arnt broken in as of yet.

For the cost chassis size and power consumption this amp is more than anyone could ask for..

I remain very happy with the quality and performance of the JAD amps in a marine environment. Like others have stated the bass knob does not work as it should.

All will be solved when I add my wet sounds eq

Would and have reccomended this product to others.

The NVX 1200.1 does rated or above I have it running 2 sundown SA 8 d4 at 1ohm and it gives them all they want with plenty of head space. The amp gets warm but haven't had it shut down yet and I play it hard. I also have a NVX 800.4 running my highs and it also has very clean sound and so much more power than I'm using I would suggest these amps to anyone not wanting to spend alot but have good clean power.

Fantastic amplifier

Fantastic amplifier for the price, true to it's specs, I run it at 1 ohm all day long and it doesn't over heat, I would highly recommend it.

great product!

March 24, 2014

I bought this cause my sub needed a more powerful amp. It made a huge difference in the sound. I recommended this amp to a few friends and they bought one too. The cons is that it is very power hungry and the remote knob is usless. Other than that it is a great amp, great power for the price. I would buy it again and again!

Beware of Bass Knob

November 21, 2013

I love the amplifier, I have it wired down to 1ohm for it's full 1,200 watts to power two Alpine SWR-12d4. I was surprised to see how small it really is and how good it looks compared to my old Brutus 1200.1D. I love how is made of metal all around not plastic, and that it is CEA-2006 compliant.

However, I can't say the same for the bass knob. The bass knob is made of plastic all around and seems cheap, to make things worst just like previous reviews, indeed the bass knob doesn't seem to work properly. I have worked with two of this amps, originally I bought one and the bass knob didn't work. It dove me crazy so I had it exchanged thinking it was broken, however, the replacement wasn't much different.
The first one I had the bass knob didn't do anything from volume 0-50% and anything from 50-100% of the volume was exactly the same (no difference in volume)...The second one, the current one I use, the bass knob doesn't play anything from volume 0-25% and anything from volume 25-100% is the same volume, just like the last amp there is no difference in volume sound. It feels more like a ON and OFF knob if anything. That was a huge turn off in my eyes almost made me return it back

Pros: CEA-2006 Complaint, looks good, sounds great, full metal.
Cons: Bass knob is garbage. (Huge turn off!!!)

My opinion

June 25, 2012

I bought the nvx sound deadner,AWESOME! Ive heard nvx amps arent too bad and are a huge "sleeper" for their price. I want to see nvx products bench tested because im very interested in this brand now. Everything ive seen from this company is well priced and performed my expectations just because of price. I think nvx will do good in the future we will see? I cant say anything about durability though but il giver a 5 because people i know havent complained yet so thats a good thing!

Not Powerful Enough

January 25, 2014

I bought this amp with a package deal including a 12 inch alpine sub. While the sub sounds amazing, this little amp was not powerful enough to push my one sub. Whenever I turn the radio up the bass would cut in and out, and the bass nob is pretty much useless, it only turns the bass on, but there is no difference in sound when turning the knob, I end up buying a Brutus 1100 watt amp, and the difference is like night and day. I do not recommend this product if you can spend a couple extra $100s you will be able to get a much better amp and I think it would be worth the investment.
pros: its small and pretty much fits anywhere in the car.
cons: not enough power, and bass knob is trash.
I did not have a good experience with this product and now I will stay away from this brand.

GET IT!!!!!!!

November 17, 2013

NVX is my new favorite company their products are very well built at a fantastic price. This amp is as clean as can be and has every feature needed it is simple as that. I have it with the NVX VCW122 at 1Ohm and it gets maybe lukewarm LOVE IT!! I do have one complaint however I hate how a 1200 Watt amp comes with 8 AWG pawer and ground, and while they do include an adapter for 0 AWG the screws on mine were drilled wrong or something, but i just re drilled the threads and they worked fine. I would really like to see the next gen not need an adapter for 0 AWG or 4 AWG

TRUE RMS

November 3, 2013

I have just completed installation of this amp. So far, the power is surprising. I did not realize the amp was so small when i purchased it. In fact, I was very doubtful that it would perform well after seeing the size after unboxing. I use it to power two 12s. It delivers a very satisfying thump. I am genuinely amazed by the power. I also use a nvx capacitor. I am fast becoming a nvx fan. Great products in my experience.

The Best, Pound for Pound!

July 8, 2014

In the same ballpark as this little guy, nothing touches it. The AD-1 Test run is legit! I'm running this at 2ohms, and I am AT LEAST grtti getting the 800w at 14v. Compared to amps of the past, this thing is a bit unimpressive out of the box because of its tiny footprint. Once plugged up it leaves Little Doubt of its performance! It gets warm, but my hand doesn't get an NVX logo branded if I touch it. Between the beating I'm giving it and the 95+ degree summer we're having, this guy is a Trooper! I chose this over the Rockford Fosgate R1200, and I dont regret it one bit. Only complaint is the bass knob, it's not as sensitive as I'd like, but once you find the sweet spot it works as advertised. It may just be dummy proof, which is why there's no "bass boost" knob - A Good Thing!
These guys got it right!

Awesome little amp!!!

December 20, 2013

I have gone through 4 different amps trying to find the right one to power my 2 Kicker 10" L-7's. They were in my other car on a JL 1000/1, but I upgraded to a DD sub for the JL, and moved the L-7's to my daily driver. The most recent amp that I had hooked up to them was an MB Quart ONX1.1500D, which was a good amp for the money, but after getting used to the JL, I pushed the MB Quart too hard and fried it (thank GOD for Square trade warranties--they really do pay off). I ordered a Hifonics BRZ1200.1D, and while I was waiting on that, The guys at Sonic suggested that I try out this new little amp they were now selling. They said that it was a much better amp than the MUCH bigger Hifonics, and I must admit, I was very skeptical. But, they were right!! It's going on 2 months now and this thing is making my L-7's POUND, while the amp barely gets warm !!! It's not a JL 1000/1, but for 1/4 the price and 1/3 the size, it beats the hell out of darn near anything in it's price range!! Supposedly, this amp is even better than the Rockford Fosgate Prime Series, which I also considered. Sonic's customer service is great and their employees know their products and will give it to you straight about what's what, even if it goes against your core beliefs. Keep up the good work!!

I am very happy with the amp powering 2 Alpine Type r 12". The amp pushes them enough to be clear and thump. Super simple to wire, love the remote amp level. Use it all the time, when I have people that don't like big bass. It is simple to just turn it down.

Also, contacted the company for advice. They answered me back right away, with a correct answer and a diagram. Great customer support.

Excellent Sub Amp

December 19, 2012

This replaced my stolen Soundstream Reference 1000sx from the late 90s. So far its been good, I also purchased a RE Audio SEX12D2 and it sounds great. Dont know why people say the new re subs are no good. I've had a system in all my cars since 1997. Used all the top brands and i gotta say this amp is great. 1000 watt amps in the late 90s were usually in the $1000 range. Great deal too, in 15 years of being amazed at car stereo ive had from the beginning a 50 sanyo amp. upgraded to a hitron whitney, upgraded to LA Sound Malibu, then soundstream reference 200, Lanzar opti50. then US Amps usa150. then US Amps usa200, Kicker Si200, ppi art series300, ppi pc275, mtx 2150x rockford 500m.1,soundstream reference 1000sx and now this. its far the most powerful amp Ive had to date. Ive stopped purchasing car audio in 2002 since i had everything, but in the past 10 years prices have sure dropped a lot. Redid my entire system with current gear and the passion still lives on.

I bought one of these because I saw they made/ exceeded their power rating. I was more than pleased with it, so I bought another. Now I have two of these on two NVX 15's and I am very satisfied. The only issues I have with them is that they are not strappable and the bass knob only works about half way down. Other than that it is a great buy!

NVX JAD1200.1

January 9, 2014

I've had this amp for about a year now and have it wired to 1 ohms to an Alpine SWR-12D2. This amp is pretty small, but it definitely puts out at least 1200 watts RMS. This amp has never went into protect, clipped, or done anything wrong. It's dependable, affordable, and puts out some serious power for it's size. It is also CEA-2006 compliant which means it's been proven to put out at least what it says. The only thing is that this amp gets pretty hot. I've never played it for hours on end, but regardless the sides and top get pretty warm. It has never went into protect though, so I wouldn't worry about it. My cars also an oven during the summer. Also, the bass remote doesn't work the greatest. It is more like an on/off switch. But I don't really care because I can tune it through my headunit. Overall I am very pleased with this amp as with all NVX products. They're one of my favorite brands. I only wish they would make a huge monoblock, like 2400 watts RMS. Now that would be awesome!

Love this amp

August 31, 2015

This amp is hooked to two nvx vcw dual 4s in a 1998 dodge ram ext cab fox acoustic box and the sound quality of the amp n box is already noticeably better n louder than my Soundqubed Q750.1 obviously less power. My box has alot to do with SQ as well chambers r .74 cu ft stuffed with 3/4 lb of pillfill and I siliconed around the subwoofer gasket to the box and there is NO leaks. Tuned at 35hz. The amp is small just bigger than a license plate n puts out big power on only 4awg soundqubed wire. Wht I love is how efficient it is. gives off great bass n sound while my lights NEVER dim only have big 3 on stock alt. I recommend this amp over most otheres for the price. the technology and underrated power is worth every penny and I dont plan on parting with it because it took me 3 yrs to finally buy this system. Cost about $1200

decent amp

October 31, 2015

The amp is decent. To tune it your pretty much guessing. Looks good and sounds clear though. It gets a little warm but I have it pushing to digital design woofers which like power. I went from a hifonics 1200 to this and the difference was night and day. The nvx seems to almost double the power output. For the price I'd recommend it. Caint say its the best. But if you want a strong reliable little amp this is the one to get!

Not impressed so far. Blown fuses out of box!

October 12, 2015

I purchased this amp because I needed a 1 ohm stable amp. I plan on going from 2 woofers to 4. During my out of box inspection noticed all fuses blown. I replaced them with the ones that came with the amp. It still seems to work but output seem very low from my previous amp. My other amp was a kicker amp that puts out 1000rms at 2 ohms. This amp puts out 800 @ 2 ohms. I understand its a 200 watt difference, but the kicker amp output was twice as loud of the NVX. My other subs should be installed in a few days so I'll see what the output is like @ 1 ohm. If its still poor...... refund!

I love this little amp. I am replacing a Rockford BD1000 that I had for 10 years. Not really into car stereo like I used to so I was looking for a budget amp. There is nothing cheap about this amp except the price. I have it pushing a pair of 10's at 600rms each wired at 1 ohm and this thing is a beast. First NVX purchase but I will definitely consider this brand for other equipment in the future. Like everyone else said the bass knob is a little hard to get used to but I have a 4 year old so I like being able to turn it all the way down and have no sub output.

June 27, 2016

After taking a day to pre-wire my car with the 1/0 Guage kit I finally got everything where it needed to be. I had a left over 1 farad cap that went into the install as well.(gonna have to up grade my alternator) I did have issues running such a big wire through my car but it was recommended and worth it.
The big amp is really about the size of a license plate. connects are ok but they work. btw, you gotta punch a pretty big hole to ground 1/0 gauge. Ok onto the real sh*t..my car actually breathes now. The lows are strong and focused, can't see through any of the mirrors and my sunroof is gonna crack soon. In other words...major bump. I'm a Rockford Fosgate fan but with a kid in college now, my budget on this project was limited. Punch has some competition now though. The amp does get hot after an hour beating the sh*t out of my 3 10's wired to 1.3 ohms. It did go into thermal protection mode but after a few minutes it woke up. Also, due to tight spaces it's right next to its brother the 800.4 so I'll be adding fans really soon. After a bit more tuning, adjustments and tweaking I hv found a sound that will rival many high end systems. Sq and spl I'm very impressed and satisfied.
cons...nothing that wouldn't raise the price like cooling fans,bass booster. The led for power is really bright. It and the logo being lit is unnecessary. Not into aesthetics for something that's tucked behind my rear seat. but for the price and the sound is can deal with it. I'm old school and I believe in value. Sometimes you get more than you pay for. And 2yr warranty

Very underrated!!!!

June 9, 2016

I had never heard of NVX before but this amp is very very underrated like Kicker and Rockford amps. The amp 683 @4ohm, 1123 @ 2ohm, and 1400 @1ohm. You guys don't know what you are missing!! I have this paired with 2 NVX dual 4 600rms 12's @ 2ohms. Omg!!! Pick this amp up.

These amps deadly! Small footprint, build solid, more then 1200 watts rms at 1 ohm. Love that it comes with the 1/0 gauge adapter, very helpful for running larger gauge wire. Only negative would be the bass remote, seems very 'cheap' compared to the amp. I don't use it so it doesn't bother me.

The first one I order was actually defective (LPF dial just kept spinning, had no stopping point, LPF did work though) I was just going to deal with it, as I'm in Canada and shipping it back and forth would be expensive for me. I did call NVX and let them know about the issue and instead of them saying "okay" or "What do you want us to do about it" they were extremely helpful. They worked with Sonicelectronix and were able to ship me a new amp that day! They also covered the cost to ship back the defective amp. I absolutely love the NVX products. Highly recommend any of their products.

Pretty kickass amp, little size...huge power

April 15, 2016

I like the output power pf this amp. I have it pushing two NVX vcw104's. I seem to have plenty of power and room for advancement. Although I'm not entirely satisfied with the craftsmanship of this thing. I can manage to "fiddle around with" the knobs, all except the Subsonic filter. it turns and turns and turns. Although It seems to be set right and not be pushing out any super LOOOOWS I'm just entirely happy w something on here not working. and the fact that it would be a 2 week or more turn around for me to get a replacement I am just sucking it up and keeping it. I have a 2 year warranty so if it truly becomes an issue I expect full return access, as I purchased this with the wiring kit for THAT exact reason. And everyone is complaining about the bass knob but to be honest I could care less of that.

This amp is a beast!

March 25, 2016

Just buy it you won't regret it. I did a lot of research before I made my purchase and actually I was so impressed with the quality of the nvx amp kit I received I just had to try an amp. I had it professionally installed and the installers never heard of this brand but they were blown away. I have this pushing a Sundown audio sa 8v3 and it sounds great, it has tons of power and it's clean power. Sonic electronix has been great. I had to return a couple items and the return process was quick and easy. I'll definitely use them again.

Awesome amp

March 23, 2016

I was pushing 2 re audio 10's (600W each) with a cheap 2000W amp and they sounded like crap and had lots of distortion. I bought this 1200.1 NVX amp and they hit twice as hard and there is no distortion. All around clean sounding bass. It's a small simple amp that works very well compared to spending $500-$1000 for a big name brand.

Its Ok

February 8, 2016

So yeah i had this amp for about 5 months before it randomly started going into protect on me every single time i turned my car on... I returned it, and am currently waiting for my new one to come in. Before this all happened, it was a DECENTLY loud LITTLE amp, very small footprint and light weight. Its running my 2 sundown sa 12s, subs stay very cool while the amp does as well unless im slamming her for about an hour and a half then shed get warm. I really cant complain about the performance and sound for the price. If you want louder it would take probably double the cost even triple the cost, to in fact be louder. Hopefully my new one doesnt randomly stop playing on me like this one did...

Tip my hat to this amp

October 6, 2015

I give this amp an outstanding 5 stars. I came from a hifonics brx 2200 to this and wow what a difference in quality and real power and sound. This amp does put out very clean signal and no distortion with plenty of head room. I have this to a cvx 15 and man I never thought a kicker can hit very hard and clean this amps provides that and what's a big plus is that it's able to accept a 0 awg wire with the included adapter. Just incredible.

Power Acoustik MOFO-122X
Power Acoustik MOFO-122X
Best Answer: Simply, yes it will work. However, the RMS rating for the subs is 1500 watts and at a one ohm load the amp will only put out 1200 watts. For dual two ohm subs you can wire them for a load of 2 ohms or 8 ohms. Neither of which will place the amp in a good position to achieve its full potential. If you wire the subs for 2 ohm load then the amp will only be able to push around 800 watts; that is not close at all to the potential of the subs ability. So, to answer your question, yes it will work, but you will not get the amps full ability.

This amplifier can push 2 JL 12w3v3-2 without heating even working in 1 ohm? The Amplifinder not say that this amp can be used for these 2 subwoofer. In the amplifier specifications shows a Great amplifier and strong, I need to be sure that I will not have any problems like overheating.
Marcelo C on Feb 26, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

The reason the Amplifinder doesn't list the JAD1200.1, is because Each JL Audio 12W3v3-2 is ONLY asking for 100-500 watts RMS. When/if wired to the JAD1200.1, you will be providing each driver AT LEAST ~600w RMS. That, in of itself, is considered Warranty Void by JL Audio. Our concern here wouldn't be with the amplifier, it would be with the JL Audio 12W3v3-2 inability to handle That much power. Moreover, add the fact that the amplifier is capable of provider well beyond its rated figures, you may very well blow the subwoofers. Proceed at your own risk.

Does this amp come with a remote volume knob?
Pancho C on Oct 15, 2014
Best Answer: Hi there, thanks for reaching out. Yes, these amps do come with bass control knobs. I will tell you hat I don't use them myself because it's easy to turn it up too high and distort the woofers they're powering. I also have two of thhese amps and trying to adjust the 2 would be too hard to keep them hitting even. I use a digital sound processor from the company audio control to control both of the amps. It is great and if you tune your amp with the knob all theay up you won't get any gain distortion. Hope this was helpful. Have a nice day.

Will this support multiple subwoofers?
Harry D. Staff on Aug 5, 2014
Best Answer: Absolutely. Obviously you have to make sure the figures make sense, but technically this amp can support 4,8,16 subs IF you make the numbers work. 16 is probably a stretch sense that would mean the subs would be rated at 75w RMS, haha =P . On the topic of Multiple Subs, I'm thinking of adding a Second VCW104 to this amp.

I'm confused on how to wire this sub. I have a NVX JAD1200.1 amplifier that I'm going to use. Under wiring guides I'm assuming I will be using the Mono Amp layout under the 1 RE Audio SXX10D4 Subwoofer category? The site they referred me to also gives me the same wiring layout - Does it matter which positive and negative ports I put the wires in? (wired in parallel?) I'm new to this if you can't already tell, clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Best Answer: from what i understand the jad1200 has a mono output that is a single channel output. the two speaker connectors are provided so you can wire the voice coils or two woofers to this amp without trying to cram all the wires into one output as with many mono amps today. the outputs are + - + -. you can either connect positive to positive and negative to negative on the woofer and run one set of wires to the amp on + - or you can run wires from each voice coil to the amp, woofer + to amp + and woofer - to amp - . either way you will be running the amp at two ohms provided you have a woofer with dual 4 ohm voice coils. if you have a dual 2 ohm woofer you will put the amp into a 1 ohm load(which is the lowest load it can run safely per manufacture specs. i have run this amp all three ways without and issues. keep in mind to set the gain correctly. i havent run my 1200 at one ohm but at two and four ohm. that being said you should set your gain according to the amp load. if you change the load reset the gain accordingly. hope this helps

okay I am planning on buying this amp and run it at 1 ohms do I need dvc 2 ohm subs or dvc 4 ohm subs and how do I hook them up?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

That depends on Your definition of "subs" . "Subs" can mean two, three, four, five, six subwoofer etc..etc... Assuming you are implying the typical Two Subwoofer setup, then two Dual-4ohm Subwoofers wired in Parallel/Parallel will achieve a 1ohm final impedance.

Best Answer: Yes this will push it better then the jl 1000..I owned this amp for a year and loved it....very clean sound and super small to fit in tight spots...don't let size fool you big things come in small packages for real...I upgraded from the nvx 1200 watt to the nvx 3000 watt amp and I'm.gonna stay with the nvx brand...give it a try because I also owned the jl 1000 amp and I personally like nvx better

Hi there ,....i'm also confused with the wiring diagram..... i have 2x sub dual 4ohm.. so i put each serie to 2ohm,.... now i want a 1 ohm load. so normally with 1output + - i would wire them serie to get 1 ohm load + on + , - on -. now i see 2x output + - and + - . when i connect each sub which have a 2ohm load to each output .will this automatically put the load to 1 ohm SERIE? or will it give me 4ohm PARALLEL?? so final question is will the amp automatically connect it SERIE?
Nicole P on Jun 4, 2015
Best Answer: i take it that you have two dual four ohm voice coil sub woofers, you want the final impedance to be one ohm. if that's the case wire each sub in parallel +to+ and -to- and wire it to one set of the + - on the amp. do the same with the other one. the outputs on the amp are the same with either connection. it's a mono amp,so it has only one output. they provided two outputs to make it easier to connect multiple woofers to the amp hope this clears up any confusion you may have

How would you wire (2) DVC 4 ohm subwoofers down to 1 ohm on this amp?
Anthony G on Aug 10, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

You have TWO options here - give our guys a call if it gets to hard to follow - of which NEITHER is "Better" than the other. You will get the exact same performance.

1) You can wire the Two Dual-4ohm subs TOGETHER in Parallel, and simply use 1 Positive (+) & 1 Negative (-) from the Amp.

OR

2) You can wire EACH Dual-4ohm sub, INDIVIDUALLY, in Parallel. This will bring the impedance of EACH SUB down to 2ohms. Then, you will give EACH SUB its own Positive & Negative, utilizing all the outputs on the amp. The amp will then - WITHOUT any intervention from you - bring down the impedance to 1ohm on its own, because the outputs come together internally like a traditional Monoblock.

I have two nvx vsw104. I was wondering if it would be ok to use this JAD 1200.1 and wire it at 1 ohm?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Like our awesome customers have confirmed. Absolutely! Simply use just ONE Positive (+) and ONE Negative (-) on the amp if the wiring gets confusing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbtAMBSJEq0

I have this amp .... This amp says at 14.4volts at 1ohm load will produce 1200 RMS Now I have a stock alternator 130 amp alternator with XS power 3400 battery and a kinetic HC 800 battery at the amp my volts stay between 13.9-14.1 when the bass hits it drops down to 12.8 on heavy bass notes ... My question is am I getting the 1200 RMS or should I upgrade my alternator to a Mechman alternator 240 amp its a truck 2000 Ford F-150 XLT 4.6 that 240 amp alternator is the only one that will fit my truck according to your website and mechman website ... Should I upgrade or is my current alternated doing to job ?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2016
Best Answer: I would make sure all of your grounds are good ,make your kinetic battery is ground to frame of the truck,and then if you have the same problem change the alternator.Also you might have the stock alternator check iit could be getting weak. good luck

okay this is a dumb question but I just cant comprehend the speaker inputs.. I have 2 dvc 2ohm subs do I just hook positive and negative on both woofers to each terminal on the amp? I'm looking for a 1 ohm load
A shopper on Nov 24, 2015
Best Answer: Hi,

- To avoid confusion, simply use ONE pair of terminals, and ignore the second pair. Using them vs Not Using them does NOT change the performance of the setup. The terminals are setup this way to make installation easier, but obviously it does the complete opposite of that =P .

- Unfortunately, it is physically IMPOSSIBLE to wire two Dual-2ohm subwoofers to a 1ohm final load. See the link below.

Should you go with Certified Results or Dynamic Results when picking an amp?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2015
Best Answer: Certified is the wattage the amp puts out with an uninterupted sound wave ( 40 hz test frequency ) while dynamic is used with variable sound waves ( normal music ). The way I consider those numbers is that this amp will put out around 1300 watts at a minimum and 1600 at a maximum at any given time ( with the amp running at 1 ohm of course ).

I plan on running this amp at 4 ohms, I have a factory amp for my mids and highs, would it over power the mids and highs? I don't know how much the factory amp puts out.
Scott A on Nov 7, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Scott,

Technically, it is impossible to answer your question without knowing exactly how much your OEM amplifier is providing. However, generally speaking, we highly doubt it is coming anywhere close to the power output abilities of the JAD amplifier. To that point, it Does have the ability to "over power" that OEM amplifier, for obvious reasons, but a proper tune and configuration should result in the desired outcome.

Would this be an upgrade from a PIONEER GM-D9601 or should I go with something bigger? Im running two Sundown SA 10 D4's.
A shopper on Nov 7, 2015
NVX JAD1200.1
NVX JAD1200.1
Pioneer GM-D9601
Pioneer GM-D9601
Best Answer: Your question is a bit tricky to answer. Obviously the power ratings of the two amplifiers are about the same (not considering the Dyno results), so there isn't much "upgrade" there. We aren't Sundown Dealers, so we can't speak for their product, but the specs of the driver say that your amplifier is only asking for ~1200w RMS @1ohms/4ohms. With that said, the output is a bit of a moot point, because you are shooting for the same results.
However, the JAD does provide better overall SQ, efficiency and a proper Subsonic Filter. Is this "better"? That really depends on YOUR opinion of how much all the matters. We would argue that it DOES matter, making the JAD "better", but that comes down to you =]

If running this amp at 4 ohms, with it being an amp with 120 amps in fusing be too much for a 140 amp alternator and stock battery? I plan on doing the big three before install.
A shopper on Nov 5, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

Your question is a bit difficult to follow, so do you mean:

"If I am running this amp at 4 ohms, would a 140 amp alternator on a stock battery be too much, considering the amp has 120 amps in fusing? I plan on doing the big three before install."

If so, then no, that is not "Too much" . The amperage of the alternator has no ill affect on the amplifier, because the alternator is still only providing a standard ~14v to the battery, then to the amplifier. Also, the impedance of your system has no relationship - in terms of 'ill affect' - with the amperage of the alternator. Point being, you are fine.

how to wire NVX vcw122 sub to work with NVW jad1200.1?
Peter E on Jun 26, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Peter,

We assume you wish to gain a 1ohm final load. Please, before proceeding, be aware that you will - figures wise - be overpowering the driver. This means YOU as the user must take responsibility for making sure the system is tuned properly as to not damage either the driver or amplifier. Most manufactures will not honor warranties for USER ERROR . With that said, below is a link as to how to wired the driver to a 1ohm load, simply use one set of outputs on the amplifier.
