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.
Razor (Power Acoustik)
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 Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

1500 watts
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 Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
2 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.
.5%
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.
Yes
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)
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.

50 - 250 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
10 - 50 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.
70 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.
20A 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.

Wattage is overrated, but amp works great if you know this...

November 7, 2012

First off, the wattage is rated WAY higher than what this thing probably outputs. Just looking at the integrated fuses on the amp, given my experience, it's pretty apparent that the maximum RMS output probably isn't going to be higher than 600-700W. With some quick searches around the web, the Soundstream version is rated at 260 X 1 at 4 ohm and 450 X 1 at 2 ohm (if you look at the manual, it essentially calls out the RZ1-1500D as the PN1.450D). Knowing all that, it's a pretty good little amp if you need those kind of power ranges. Doesn't seem to get too warm after extended 'general' use at 2 ohm and has just an absolutely tiny size. I can't express how small this thing is in comparison to other amps out there. Decent sound quality for a subwoofer with adequate damping factor (could be a bit better, but better than most amps in this price range). Great features for the price - subsonic and remote bass knob. Appears to be well built and has a very clean look. Can't comment to long term durability yet, but have been using it for about 1 month with no issues. If you're looking for a good, small profile solution, with 260 (4) and 450 (2) output - I'd recommend.

Cool amp

November 12, 2013

Cool little amp that was recommended to push my 15" KickerCompD152. A bit underpowered but good enough for me to enjoy my music. When first installed I thought it was faulty because I wasn't getting any sound. It turned on but had no sound at all. Tried two different RCA and no luck. Then I connected my mp3 player to it and finally had sound. (Figured my new receiver's output signal rca connections were faulty.) After receiving signal from the mp3 player, I reconnected the amp to the receiver (before pulling the receiver out) and it actually started working! Don't know what the issue was, (Yes! everything was connected right.) but everything works fine now.

Power Acoustik RZ1-1500D

September 29, 2013

Let me just get started by saying this amp does NOT have 1500 watts. I'm not saying this is a bad amp, it's all metal, comes with a sub controller, and its very small. This would be the perfect amp for like a 6-8 inch 2 ohm sub or something like that. I just wanted to say that it is not as powerful as it said it is.

Decent amp

September 26, 2013

I have it hooked up to a 10'' Pioneer driver in custom made box for my Ridgeline. Amp is fine. I am not sure, what Subzero knob does, but otherwise, install was very fast, and it took me only about a week to fine tune it. Also, I expected a bit more power out of it. But it is OK for my needs.

great little amp

September 19, 2013

When I first pulled it out of the box I was surprised by its small size (smaller than a sheet of paper LxW) terminals hold solid, dials are easy to tune, and it definitely makes 950w @2ohm! Only 2 minor problems I have are that it gets pretty hot, so keep it ventilated, and the bass knob is pretty much on and off with hardly any control in between if you have a light touch it should be fine.

Big bang little amp

April 4, 2013

This amp is amazing for the price. I have it on a kicker comp 10 and it drives the hell out of it. Little to no distortion even on max settings. Replaced an 800W class A/B amp and the difference is unreal. Ran it for 2 hours at 4ohms and it was still cool to the touch. Would suggest a small cap as it can cause your lights to dim on a strong low note. No real down sides so far but ill post on any that I find. As for the power rating, I would imagine it is more likely 500RMS at 4ohms rather than the 600 that it boasts but most amps are rated on perfect bench environments.

Well its a decent little amp, and does well to power my 2 Rockford Fosgate 8" P2 DVC subs. Small footprint makes it easy to find a place to mount or hide. 1 con however, stats say largest input wire is 4 awg, its not, its 8 awg. not a big deal, adapters are easy to make or purchase.
