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.
Zeus (Hifonics)
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.

1000 watts
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
4 AWG
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
1 ohms
Minimum Impedance Bridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
Not Bridgeable
THD at Rated RMS Power
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
0.1%
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
No
Preamp Outputs
Many amplifiers are equipped with RCA preamp outputs which pass the original music signal from the source to additional amplifiers. This is known as daisy chaining because the source connects to the first amp, and the first amp connects to the second amp, etc. The advantage to daisy chaining is you only need one 2-channel RCA cable to transfer the signal from the head-unit to the amplifier, and then one additional cable for each amp being daisy chained.
1 pair
Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

Low-pass (LP)
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.

30 - 250 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
15 - 35 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.
<0.1 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 - 10 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.
80A x 1 
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.

Good amp for little price.

April 21, 2014

I bought this amp to push some 10" subs and it has plenty of power for them. I really like the sub sonic bass control that come with the amp. It works great. So far it has been a great amp running 2 ohms and not even getting warm running it hard.

Great amp

February 10, 2014

I'm pushing 2 Kenwood 3013's and you should see them flex. Running at 2ohms it doesn't even get a little warm. Graet amp, just be sure you have enough power for it. I have an 80 amp stock alternator, no special battery, and a 5F capacitor and if I turn it up too high for too long I see voltage drop down into 12's. I'll now have to get a 2nd battery or HO alternator. Something I should have thought about. Very good amp though.

I like it

January 12, 2014

This was my first build so I have no experience for comparisons, but I have had no problems with it. Pushing two cheap 10in subs at 800w (amp is 750 at 2 ohm). Slightly underpowered but they still pound with no clipping as far as I can tell. Can't say much about heat dissipation because it's winter.

Great Amp!!!!!

November 13, 2013

This amp is really outstanding for the price you pay!! I have this amp running Two Kicker Cvr10 102's wired down to two ohm and doesn't get hot or anything hold up to everything for the long period of time I listen! I do not have a capacitor but with amp it doesn't drain the battery enough to really have to it doesn't dim my lights either when I really put a load to it!

So far so good

October 22, 2012

After what seemed like months of searching for the perfect Class D amplifier, I got frustrated, so many too choose from, I knew exactly what my subs needed so I contacted Sonic. Rob R. was a great deal of help with making my final decision and ultimately purchase. This amp is very user friendly, even if you don't know what you're doing, the detailed instructions that come with it should help the newest of noobs. Love the clean clear rumbling bass I get out of the ZRX1000.1D. Before my purchase I knew nothing of Hifonics, now I'm in love. Sonic Electronix is tha shiznit, will be purchasing all my car audio needs (wants) from this site, from now on. If you're in need of 1000w RMS DO NOT HESITATE...... order this amp. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

Very Suprised

August 6, 2012

I have had this amp for a couple of months and I was running it at 4 ohm on a Kicker 12 single voice coil sub and it sounded great. Then I bought a Sundown Audio E 12D2 and now it is running at 1 ohm and boy did it come to life. I am very satisfied and I will buy Hifonics amps in the future.

POWER FROM THE GODS!!!

June 12, 2012

I got this to replace a crunch I had powering two kenwood 12s in a ported box and even though its rated at 750 rms at 2 ohms my two kenwood have more than enough power going thru them rated a 400 rms each can't wait to put two more to run it at 1ohm smaller kenwoods though to match the 1000 rms perfect!! King kong in the trunk!!! Love hifonics and I apreciate sonicelectronix very much!!!! The durability is still a question it's only been a few weeks but it's been AWESOME!!!!!
