*The Sonic Electronix Certified Power Ratings listed are based on a test of a specific sample amplifier. Actual power ratings may slightly vary between amps.

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.

115 watts x 4 channels
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.

230 watts x 2 channels

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.
220 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.

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.
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.

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.
2 ohms
Minimum Impedance Bridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
4 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.
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)
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 - 4000 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.

80 - 4000 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 2 
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.

Knocks your socks off

February 4, 2014

This amp has plenty of power. I don't know how much headroom I have to spare because I am not going any louder - no way!

I listen to classic rock (Rush, etc.), and it is nice and clean... and this is with keeping my factory el cheapo head unit in my Hyundai.

I have some hiss when sound is off, and it could be I have the gains set too high. I will be checking that later (because it got too late tonight, and we needed to finish for the day), but I feel quite sure there is no fault with the amp. I am giving this great rating based on having listened for 1 hour so far. As long as the amp holds up for the long haul, it is a great amp for a great price.

John Islas with SonicElectronix was my sales rep, and he was good to work with.

NVX 5 channels amplifier

September 20, 2013

This is my first car amplifier. It been a great suggestion from a representative seller from Sonic electr. Today I can listeng to my music from a great amplifier that can keep a lot power. I been using it since 3 moths and now I'm more familiar with the ampli and also with my new radio (also get it at Sonic). I have the best of 2 worlds. Finally, I great thanks to Michael, a seller that answer to all my question and gave the best advises to a bigginner as me. I got from Sonic my Pioneer DEH-X9500BHS, my Polk MM speakers and my NVX Amplifier. All that toghter makes a great combination. I went with Sonic because of a such great service. For sure I'll come back in the futur. Carlos from Montreal

I purchased this amp in March '14, but waited a few months before reviewing. This is an excellent amp without question. I have had zero issues with it since day 1. It does not heat up the way my old Alpine amp did, and will only get warm to the touch after hours of use. Highly recommended.

August 29, 2014

This amp is pretty awesome so far. I wanted to have a so gel amp that I could tuck under my passenger seat on my 2011 Mazdaspeed 3. It fits perfectly, teamed up with the nvx 4 gauge amp kit and the the nvx 1 farad cap. I get minimal power drop at idle and nothing when driving. No lights dimming, nothing. But my sub is numbing and speakers are loud and clear. Love it so far. Highly reccomended.

Small foot print, lots of output , runs cool !

September 17, 2013

I purchased this amp cause of the great reviews it has. It has a really small foot print. the power ratings where in the range I was after. I play my music pretty loud and have never had any concerns of over heating. The amp runs warm at times The output is very clean and smooth sounding. The only thing I wished it had was maybe a bass boost around45Hz for the front and rear channels. The subwoofer does have bass boost option. I have not tried to use it. I am using the Rockford fasgate 360.3 so I run the the amp with all eq's and boost off. But overall this is a great amp. I have been very impressed by NVX so far.

Nice amplifier, you should have one

June 9, 2014

Very nice amplifier, crystal clear sound transformation and small size which could fit in your car anywhere, and light weight to save some gas.

Installation pretty easy, but need to buy other accessories to install, all the lines are pretty, but shipment takes some time. If they are in a whole package will be easy and save customer some time. Thanks.

Best Bang For your Buck!

March 18, 2013

I was a bit reluctant at first since I never heard of NVX but the Rep at Sonic highly recommended it stating that it was a great product with awesome Sound Quality.

He was right!

To take it further I decided to contact NVX in California and spoke to Richard. I picked his brain regarding the JAD900.5 and he went into all of the details and completely addressed all of my questions and concerns.

He also took the time to advise on the proper setting up and matching the unit to other equipment.

I received it and installed it immediately, tweaked the tuning to it's best and all I can say is WOW!!!!! 279? This amp is "EXTEMELY" well worth every penny and then some!!!!

I have had top brand products before and to be honest they are just extremely Over Rated and way over Priced!

Specs Match top line.

It hits very hard and I don't have the Gain Levels turned all the way up.
It doesn't heat up after being driven for hours straight non stop .

Not a fancy setup Kenwood KDC-X895 Head Unit, Infinity Kappa 692.9i using 6x9 Speaker Baffles filled with sound insulation on Rear Deck Infinity Kappa 6x8 in Doors, MTX Thunder 12" 8000 in 1.7 Non Ported Box. 4 Gauge Power and Ground wires + Monster Speaker wire.

Pro's: Small Size, Doesn't heat up, Clean Looking Unit. Clean Sound Quality I would highly recommend this to anyone!

CONS: None

Thanks Richard and Thank you Sonic Electronix!!!

I was skeptical at first but very glad I bought this amp.

December 22, 2012

I was looking for a smaller amp to replace my two larger amps that I had from a previous install.
I had use the Massive NX5 last year and had the over heating issue every time I was in my car.
The NVX has yet to have any problems. It gets warm to the touch after a 45 min drive but not flaming hot like some other amps.
I like to play my music loud so I was worried that the 70 watts RMS its rated for would disappoint. I had the exact opposite experience! This amp pushes my CDT speakers with ease.

Also note that you can run your system active just by using the built in crossovers.

Great Amp!!!

November 30, 2012

I purchased this amp to replace a dead channel FLI amp that was DOA and no longer available from sonic. Kinda got pushed into a more expensive amp but they were right. I am pushing 2 pairs of polk db components and a 8" JBL gto sub. WOW!!! Great mid sonic lows and very clean. I have pushed this amp for an hour at moderate to high levels and not even warm to the touch. Not a hint of clip at near unlistenable levels. Best 5 channel amp out there that i have ever heard. I am now a loyal NVX Customer! Thanks Sonic.

WOW ! AWESOME VALUE AWESOME POWER!

April 19, 2014

My experience with Sonic Electronix has been excellent ! The NVX product line is a fantastic value and the performance rivals products 3 times the cost. The JAD900.5 is the amp you need if you are looking to run your whole car audio system with 1 amplifier. I have been so VERY impressed with the power and performance from an amp with such a small footprint. I have 8 speaker running off the 4 stereo channels and one 12in 4ohm sub from the sub output. This amp has more than enough power and is capable of putting out 1000watts RMS of clean, clear power if you want to max it out. For $299 this amp is a steal of a deal and I could not be happier with my purchase. It has all the features you need in a car audio amp except High level inputs which I did not need. I give this amp 5 stars across the board and you will to. I did my research first and it paid off in spades. JUST BUY IT !

This amp has so far been flawless. The only downside is the fine tuning is not as great. Still workable but the space it takes up is minimal. I have a Nice 10" Rockford attached and if not monitored can destroy it.

Awesome AMP at a great price

May 9, 2013

I couldn't agree more with other reviewers. I hooked this amp up to pioneer components (6.5) inch in the front and JL 5.5 inch two ways in the back of my 2002 honda CRV. Also put a 10 inch shallow enclosed Pioneer sub rated at 200 watts. More than enough power to push everything with plent of gain to spare. Still tweaking but sounds really good. I shopped around and this seamed the best value for the money and got a 2 year warranty when buying the 4 gauge amp install kit. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Only gave 4 on durability because I have only had it hooked up for a week.

Excellent amp, excellent price

July 10, 2013

Pro's: The sound is excellent, puts out more than enough power, the price is very good. I was between this and a high end JL amp. I own a JL300/2. I would say this amp is comparable. It's main advantage being it's price. It has a good set of crossovers, easy to use, and good protection from a short circuit.

Con's: I know I'm being picky but I wish there were more options with the crossovers. One channel has a HPF up to 4000 hz, wish it went a little higher. Other channel has a lpf up to 4000 hz and a hpf up to 400hz. But then again to get fully adjustable crossovers would cost much more.

In the end an excellent amp for a excellent price, if I wanted a new amp with full crossovers and 5 channels it would be at least 2x as much. I recommend getting this one unless you have tons of money.

Had this amp die out twice. First time one channel just decided to stop working. Sent it on warranty and they fixed it relatively quick. Just attempted an install on a different car and it immediately went into "Protect". I have verified all wiring is 100% correct (this isn't my first rodeo) and even hooked up a different amplifier, which worked great. Good features at a good price, but just not reliable.

Great AMP

September 17, 2013

For the price, quality, and build of this amp, you can't beat it.
It has great adjustability (not as much as over $500 Amps), but way more than enough for its use.

It powers my Rockford Fosgate 6'' Fronts, Cerwin Vega 6X9 rears, and a 12' sub perfectly at 4 Ohms, gets plenty loud, but not overly where you'll never use its potential.

The amp will get warm after 30-45 mins of heavy use, but even on a long 350+ mile trip (inlcuding through slow chicago traffic) I never had the amp overheat/shut off.
I have had it for about 6 months now and have no complaints!

It is small and compact, fits right behind my rear fender in the trunk allowing me to tuck it away behind the carpet lining (still no heat issues either & its on the exhaust outlet side that gives some radiant heat).

It has over exceeded my expectations, has a range of adjust-ability and uses. NVX has hit the market spot on with a medium-high level amp that is a premium quality at a effective cost!

Amazing little amp.

July 28, 2012

Just recently purchased this amp. Got it in one day so I am extremely thrilled with the shipping and service at sonic. I have it powering my entire system with Polk db1240-dvc sub and 2 sets of speakers. In the front I have the Focal 165CA1 and in the back I went with the 690CA1. This amp is tiny and doesn't heat up much at all. I like the controls and I got the gain turned down a little for the 5th ch and my sub sounds great. The highs are crisp on my Focals and I will be back to do my other car sooN! Thanks.

Excellent amp

September 18, 2013

This is an excellent amp and compares to the best JL, Fosgate, or other. Wide range of crossover features, high power, and clear sound. I have owned a JL 300/2 and Fosgate T800.4 and this amp is right along those, but for about 1/2 the price. I have one minor complaint, when using the crossover there aren't any markings between the first frequency (40hz) to the last frequency (4000hz). It makes it difficult to tell exactly what frequency the crossover is set at, an it has to be done by ear. Nonetheless it isn't worth spending twice as much money on an amp just for that feature.

I have this in my 2008 Town & Country powering my Arc Audio XDI693's, RF T1572's and my NVX VSW104! It's small enough to fit under my seat and never runs hot! I have all NVX wires too! The SQ is truly amazing! I spend a lot more time in my vehicle now! The side controls are simple and work great for tuning! The sub remote keeps my wife happy! LOL! The power, ground and remote adapter make the install clean and simple as well! This amp is strong and well put together just like every NVX product! Look no further than NVX for quality, durable products! Sonic Electronix should be your first choice when shopping online or anywhere for that matter! Thanks guys!

Great Amp

August 15, 2015

I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to deal with multiple amp setups, I run high cone area to compensate for the low power for the sub channel. I have been building my own systems for 6-7 years now and I would rather have a 15" ID15 with 400 watts to it than my old competition setup of 2.2K watts to a single ten inch. Only reason I don't like the amp(4/5 stars for design) is because it should take 4 AWG in for power and ground, had to use a power distroblock to get it down to 8AWG for my power line.

Hard to find a better value

December 5, 2012

When I was upgrading my system for a third time I had decided I was going to spend the extra money for high SQ products. When looking for a new 5ch class D I had narrowed my field down to the Hertz HDP 5, the JL 700 /5, and the Polk PA 5000. I spoke with a rep at Sonic about placing an order and he said I should look into the NVX JAD900. Having had bad experiences with new outfits or house brand products in the past I was extremely skeptical. He stated all NVX products were CEA rated and if I were to compare specs I would find the NVX would sit right along side the brand name amps I was interested in.

After much research I found that other than some cosmetic differences the amps all used the same chipset, shared nearly identical dimensions and input and control designs, and we're nearly identical CEA rated power. So why did I choose the NVX in the end? I was able to purchase it for about half of the cost of the brand name amps! The amp installed easily, NEVER runs hot, and has really good SQ. for once in my life I was proven wrong that more money means better quality and performance. Do the research and see for yourself. There is no better product for the money!

Pros: Clean power, small footprint, super efficient, looks great, and the best performance per dollar!

Cons: The status light is super bright making tuning at night pretty difficult. The crossovers are a bit too wide range making it difficult to dial in but it's the same crossover and filter setup used on the well known brand name amps. There were some errors in the wiring diagram but it was an easy fix.

Overall a fantastic whole system solution that lets you spend more on your speakers and less on a brand name companies marketing budget.

I was on the fence about buying something other than JL amps. I have a HD600/4 and a 750/1 in my F150. I have no clue why I wasted JL money on my truck. The sub channel is a little lacking for the speaker I picked - my fault not the amp. I went with one of the NVX 12's rated at 800+ RMS so it could have gotten more power. For what I have in this system it sounds amazing and I didn't pay JL HD amp prices and it came with a bass control knob that JL sells separate.

I am sold on NVX now and I have the $$ to buy whatever I want. Total system was right at $1070 for this amp, Kenwood receiver, 2 sets Polk MM's, amp wire, and 12 w/box.

Don't hesitate to get this amp!!

Great Amp!!

December 8, 2015

I have two of these amps, one in a Thunderbird and One in a Supercrew F-150. Both sound great, and I have had zero issues with either, the one in the T-Bird has been used daily for over a year now. They are surprisingly small for how much power they deliver. I do not really care for the gauge adapter for the power and grounds however it has never gotten loose or anything on me either so it works. Because of this amp I have since tried other NVX products and have been happy with everything that has the NVX name on it, I have used a bit of everything from the sound deadener, install kits, fuse holders, amps, subs, etc. This amp stays nice and cool, has only ever gotten luke warm for me.

This thing is amazing doesn't get very hot under the the back seat of 13 Silverado ext cab and that's running all channels on a road trip from San Antonio to Dallas. The clean sound is just as impressive , not as good as the JL Audio HD I had but close. It pushes MB Quart premium comps in front and matching coax in rear all 6.5. Sub is a kicker 12 shallow mount at two ohms and is rated at 500w rms. Don't think about just get it!

Extremely Impressed

August 14, 2016

To be honest, I have been out of the Car Audio game for 10 years, and at that time the thought of a clean sounding full range class D amplifier was a pipe dream. When jumping back in to Car Audio and desiring to put a clean sounding audio system in my truck, yet keep it fairly affordable and compact, I was VERY skeptical to give this amp a shot. My bias told me no way could a full range class D sound as good as the Class A/B or Class A amps I have experienced in the past. I decided to look past my bias and give this amp a shot.

When it came in I was stunned by how compact it was! I am used to big Class A/B amps, which at this power rating would be 22 inches long. Hell my last run with Class D mono blocks were all 15 plus inches. It's compactness meant I would have no problem with placement in my Tundra Pick Up.

I was also surprised by all the settings I could use, as I had only 4 pre-outs on my deck (A budget friendly Pioneer AVH-280BT), I was ecstatic to find that I could run either a internal crossover for the sub channel, or use a the rear pre-outs on my deck to run the subwoofer, and use a sum setting to run the front rca's to power the Front and Rear speaker outputs of the amp. Definitely was not expecting that to be found in a Amp in this price range.

Finally it came time to hook up the amp. Wow! Nice clean power that make Guitars, Bass Drums all just sound like they are suppose to! So happy I took the chance on this amp.

If your looking for a great sounding, powerful 5 Channel amp this is the one for you. I just wish they made a Marine version of this amp, so I can put one in my boat!

Thanks Sonic!

Favorite Amp Ever Owned

August 3, 2016

I'm very much in love with this amp. As a 5 channel amp it runs my entire system consisting of an active 2 way front stage and single 15" sub mounted trunk baffle / infinite baffle in my sedan. It pumps out gobs of power on all channels, is super flexible to hook up, comes in a tiny package that's easy to hide, doesn't get more than warm even after hours of reference level listening and is super efficient. In short: this amp is perfect.
You absolutely cannot beat the value of this amp, you'd have to spend double or more to even come anywhere close to its performance.
I've had it for a few months now and also installed one in my brother's car, he also loves it.
The only down side I should mention is the supplied sub channel remote, it's flimsy and not progressive at all. Just throw it away and order the Scosche EFX RLC, it's easier to dose and feels way more solid.

This amp really sounds good. Have it pushing 2 sets of component speakers in 4 doors and a 10" sub. After setting up, system is very balanced and clean. Nice and small, installed behind rear cargo trim, stays nice and cool. The only thing that would have been nice is a 10x multiplier switch to run 4 channels active.

I purchased this for my girlfriends 96 ford explorer. I am using this as a 5 channel, powering some 5.25 Morel speakers up front and JVC 5x7 in back. The sub is a craigslist special, a fosgate P2 10" in a seald box. The head unit is a Kenwood, and i am using all active cross overs from the Kenwood ( I dont have any of this in front of me, so i dont know the model numbers ) this whole set up sounds great!!

The NVX amp has some awesome features. You can use the x over network to run a active front stage. So channels 1 and 2 for the mids, setting the x over in a band pass setting.... And channels 3 and 4 for the tweets, running high passed. And you still have the sub channel.

I would recommend this amp

Excellent Amp & Excellent Price

December 26, 2015

I have been jamming this amp for a month with no problems at all. It is plenty loud for the main speakers and very solid on the subwoofer. I've been running it around 80%+ max. Warms up but does not run hot. Controls are very easy to adjust and very well laid out. I was skeptical about buying a 5-channel amp vs. 2 separate amps (4-channel & 1-channel) but I wanted a slimmed down installation as opposed to the 2 separates I had previously (cheaper too). So I gave this NVX amp a try and I am pleasantly surprised. I would definitely buy this item again. If you don't need competition volume but still like it loud this amp's for you. I highly recommend this amp. Solid build, sound & clean as a whistle to boot!!

My system: A Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X998 head unit. Running 4 channels at 4 ohms into 6-1/2" and 6"x9" Polk db series speakers. The fifth channel is wired 2 ohms into a NVX NSW124V2 12" sub with a 1.5 cu ft. sealed box. My main music is Rock/Metal so I want a tight punch on the sub. Double Bass drums never sounded so good. : )

Best Answer: I'm not able to say anything about the alpine amp. But the nvx has done me well. I have 4 type s alpine speakers (2 component, 2 2-way) and a jl cp108 micro sub. Running from a Kentwood headunit. It powers everything perfectly. I actually hav to turn down the gain on the door speakers a bit because they're drowning out the sub. Could use a bigger sub. But I'm pleased with the overall sound. Would recommend this amp to anyone. Clean and powerful with a small footprint.

I have this exact amp but it tends to get really hot after about 5 minutes of play. It also gets hot even at zero volume. I have this hooked up to all my factory Logic 7 HK speakers in my w211. Any clue to why this is happening? Thanks
David T on Jul 18, 2016
Best Answer: Not sure this would answer why his amp is getting so hot but couple things to consider or look at might include:
1) did you use appropriate gauge power and ground wire? I used 4 gauge.
2) are your speakers rated at appropriate impedance for this amp? I'm running Polk mm651 at 2 ohms.
3) have you adjusted your front, rear and subsonic levels or are they all jacked up all the way to the right? (200mV) reduce down if so.
4) did you mount your amp where it can breath and get some air flow?

My amp does not get hot.

Hello. Can anyone help me?
My question is - How does this NVX JAD900.5 amplifier compare to say the JL HD900/5 , Alpine PDX-V9, Arc Audio XDiv2 1100.5 in terms of car system electrical efficiency?
Does it pull current where I would need to upgrade my alternator & add a second battery. I once had the a JL HD900/5 and it pulled next to no current and I had a constant 14.0 v reading... is this NVX amp comparable? My car is a stock 2006 Honda Pilot . Any answers would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!
CHRISTOPHER C on Jan 31, 2016
Best Answer: I have two of these amps, in separate vehicles,both running on stock alternator with only the stock battery. However each of those vehicles also have had the big 3 upgrade done which will make sure you charging system is the best It can be. They also both have good AGM batteries in them. I have not had any voltage issues, light dimming issue, or the like and they both read over 14v all the time. I think you will be fine with the big 3 upgrade and making sure everything else in the system is at its best. I added a link to NVX big three kit which should have what you need in it.

I only have one set of RCAs from my deck. Can I run the whole system with one set or do I need two in order for the sub channel to operate properly?
Brian M on Dec 30, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Brian,

By "one set" I assume you mean one "Pair" (Just 1 Red & 1 White). Which will NOT work. Technically, you can split the RCAs, but that will Dramatically degrade the signal to the amp, and you will not get the desired performance. The fifth channel will - in theory - work with just a pair, but then you will NOT get signal to given pair of channels.
You have a few options to work around this.
1) A new headunit will be the easiest solution. Maybe not the most cost effective, but definitely the most practical.
2) Using a Processor or LOC. This will allow you to take the 4channels of HIGH LEVEL outs from your headunit, and convert them to RCA. Two Kicker KISLOC or one AudioControl LC7i. The KISLOC will be the Cheapest solution, but will only be "so-so" Sound Quality. The LC7i is a processor, so it will give you Superb SQ!
3) Using an Equalizer. EQs like the NVX EQ7 & Clarion EQS746 have the ability to take ONE input (like the Only one your headunit provides) and PROPERLY splitting that signal to give you THREE Channels (Front/Rear/Sub). In addition, it is obviously an EQ, so now you can fine tune the system as well.

Just wondering, can you run the four full range channels on a 4 ohm load while at the same time running the subwoofer channel on a 2 ohm load?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2015
Best Answer: The full range channels (for speakers) and subwoofer channel are separate so yes, you can hookup the system as you described.

Full range channels: 70W x 4 channels (for 4-ohm speakers) or 105W x 4 channels (for 2-ohm speakers)
Subwoofer channel: 210W x 1 channel (for 4-ohm subwoofer) or 380W x 1 channel (for 2-ohm subwoofer)

Can this be mounted upside down?
Jason F on Mar 25, 2015
Best Answer: I have mine mounted on the back of my seat, I would Imagine upside down would be fine as there's no moving parts aside from the fan. It's a pretty small amp considering the 5 channels.

Bought this amp for 8 sub for now but idk how to set up the gains and etc need help ajusting for one sub start finish?
hec j on Aug 22, 2016
Best Answer: 8 " sub or for 8 subwoofers. 1. Either way any amp u set the gains all the way down to start.
2. Turn radio volume up to about 90 percent.
3. Start to turn up gains on amp starting with rear channels just to right before the diistortion kicks in.
4. Now do same for the front gain.
5. Now do the sub gain.
6. Now u have a starting point. U can lower the gains on ya channela to make the sound fealmore likesurround

Can you run one front channel at 2ohm back channel at 4ohm and then the subwoofer at 2ohm?
Shane M on Nov 30, 2015
Best Answer: Yes. The amplifier is stable at those impedances. Use high quality power wire, make sure you have a proper ground, and mount the amp where it will have ample clearance for cooling purposes...you shouldn't have any issues, Shane.

-and will this drain my battery, dim lights, etc... If it helps, I've got a red optima battery?

That is impossible to tell. We don't know the current state of your electrical system. Generally speaking, it will likely Not dim/drain/etc..

I need a wiring diagram for installing 2 Nvx jad900.5 amps. Is it possible to do? Any help is welcome. Came to Sonic Electronix for answers due to the knowledge I've seen Brent & Allen show on YouTube. Hopefully someone can help me. Btw keep up those clean installs guys.
Brad M on Dec 26, 2015
Best Answer: Hey Brad,

Possible? Absolutely. You can wire up infinite amount of amplifiers in a vehicle. The only limitation is the electrical load and physical space. There isn't anything fancy about wiring two 5-Channel amps, however. As such, there aren't any "diagrams" to provide - it is a very basic install. Simply pick up a Dual Amplifier Wiring Kit or Build one of your own. The NVX XAPK1D is a good example of what you need; A 0 Gauge main, a distribution block, and enough 4 Gauge wiring for for both power and ground for each amplifier respectively. Again, this is a very basic install, as you are just performing the install Twice over as you would for a "typical" install. We highly recommend consulting a hands-on professional if it gets beyond your comfort.
