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.

650 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 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.

1300 watts x 1 channels
RMS Power @ 1 ohm

The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far.

If the final impedance of your speakers or subwoofers equals 1 ohm, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound.

2000 watts x 1 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.

Not Bridgeable

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.
RMS Power @ 1 ohm
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 1 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.
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent or low bass hit. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. This is the peak power output for the amplifier's 5th channel.

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.
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.

2000 watts
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.
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.
1 pair
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.

35 - 250 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
15 - 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.
>95 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 - 18 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
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.
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.

Overrated. Great price.

May 24, 2010

Amp gets a little hot not gonna lie, also doesn't put out 2000 watts at 14.4 volts. But not too much less. Using all 0 awg wires even big 3 upgrade and this amp outperforms 2 kenwood kac-9104d's and for less cost. Sounds a lot better and a little louder. But the biggest difference was after prolonged use it didn't get quieter in any way.
Great buy.

Great Amp

July 20, 2009

I have owned my Brutus for about a little over a year, and it has been a beast. I have mine pushing two MTX T9515-44s. It is one of the best amps I have ever owned. You can install it with 4 or 0 gauge wire. With extra bats you can get your moneys worth and some out of this amp. For how small it is really performs well, and over heating is never a problem.

Good BOOM on a budget

March 6, 2008

This is one of the best amps that I have own. It's by no means on par with Kicker, MTX or Alphasonik. But its still great for the price thats its going for. It is a little over rated on the wattage that it is stating. I currently have it pushing 2 Kicker L7s and its a great combination. Only problem is that the amp has no built in fuse or gives no info on the manual on what size to run on the power cable. But hey, you get for what you pay for.

November 14, 2007

I had this amp hooked up to two Audiobahn Alum12s and wow did they quake. This amp does not get hot and thereis very little distortion. Not only does it perform well but it looks very good especially at night when those blue lights light up the back of your car.

Amp rocks

October 25, 2007

I have this amp with 2 Hifonics BX12D2 and man does this amp put out alot of power. Thats not even the best part, when people say this amp does not get hot they are right. I was listening to my system for about an hour and a half straight and when i opened my trunk and felt my amp it was hardly hot. If you want an amp that can be affordable compared to other amps and push out all the wattage you need this is it.

July 12, 2007

I am currently using this amp to power 2 12" eclipse titaniums running at 1.5 ohms, and it really slams pretty hard!! You can't ask for a better amp at this price. It has excellent sound quality amp, and decent bass. However I do think the power ratings are a bit inflated.

Impressive!

November 14, 2006

I had bad experiences with "budget" amps. This is far from it. I have this amp pushing 3 L7 10's at 1.34 ohms and it doesn't even get warm. Not quite as loud as my Fosgate 2000bd (before it crapped out on me) but pretty close especially for hundreds of dollars less. Running 1/0 g wire with stock electric system in 04 mustang GT, minimal to no light dimming. If your on a budget and you want performance give this amp a serious thought, you won't be dissapointed.

Awesome amp.

June 26, 2006

Do not underestimate this amp. Although the Brutus name is new and not well known, this amp does not play around. It is a certified SUBWOOFER KILLER! So far on my killed in action list are (4) kicker comp vr 2 ohm 12s, 1 soundstream XS-12/2, (2) kicker solo-baric L7 15s [yes, i didn't stutter, they couldn't hang for a 45 second drag], 2 brutus 12 inch 2ohm [so far these speakers performed the BEST. The amp is not supposed to be able to run less than 1 ohm stable, but I ran it at .5 ohm putting out close to 3000 watts rms. This amp does not play around. With 5 being a perfect score, I'd give this amp an 8.
