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.

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.

3200 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
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.

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.
Amp Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature will tell you if the amplifier has the capability to connect to a Bluetooth device.

Had my doubts but not after installing

April 7, 2014

For the price the ZRX3200.1D is a great amp. I have this on two AB XFL1244's and it sounds great. I've done the Big 3 only so far; no dimming lights but I do notice my volt gauge making very slight dips. I'm in the process of upgrading to a HO alternator and two AGM batteries. If you'd like to get the proper power out of this amp make sure you're able to give it that power: Big 3, HO alternator, and at least one AGM battery under the hood.

Nice Amp. Great value

October 28, 2013

This Amp is powerful, with a lot of features. I love the illumination.
I am pushing about 900 RMS to one Sundown SA-12 and I will add 2 other subs to have 3000 watts coming out of this monster then I will review it again.

Amp is good but does put out the full rms as listed. It is wired up at 1ohm with two T2s and plays loud and I guess does the job. No heat up and runs cool so far.

This amp has amazing power for a very reasonable price. Very well built, sturdy and nicely finished. Its only drawback is its much bigger and heavier than other amps in the class. I would recommend it to anyone who wants big power on a tight budget.

I would recommend this product!
Got this bad boy hooked up to a HCCA ORION 12''.
This amp stays cool, plays for hours at a time without ever going into protection mode..
I was nervous about purchasing the Zues series but glad I took the leap into the unknown of a 2013 product!
This amp DEFINITELY puts out at least 3000 clean RMS on the DMM before clipping.. obviously CEA compliant.
Couldn't be happier, just make sure you have the big 3, and another battery this is a power monster..
Price is right, I would not hesitate especially if on a budget.

Hifonics Amp

September 1, 2014

I recomend this amp to anyone. The price is right, the power is awesome. I was a little hesitant when I felt the weight but I was pleasantly surprised. I also have the 2400.1D and am very excited to see how it does in my other vehicle. I'm really interested in the length of time it will last, but for now it is great. Pushes 4, 12 earthquake magmas very well.

The power it pushes out
Derrick N on Jan 28, 2015
I have heard nothing but great things about Hifonics amps. For the price and the power I cant really think of anything better. In a few days I will be buying one more ZRX3200.1, they will power two Kicker L7 12s in a custom box. When its time to buy new Subs I'm going to pick up two Sundown 18s. Nice thing is the amps will have the power and then some for whatever I want to build.
Brandon M on Oct 25, 2014
Took it for the Kicker 40VCWR122 (1600W@2Ohm)
Marvin M on Jan 22, 2015
are the hifonics zrx 3200 amps stapable ?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2014
Best Answer: Meh not worth strapping these guys. Better off to spend more and get an amp that'll do the power you're looking for. Try a Skar-2500

Do you think this would power a Power accoustik 122x good at 2 ohm?
A shopper on Nov 12, 2014
Best Answer: Yes it would be more than enough to power it. Dont be deceived by what power acoustik says their subs are rated at. Do some research on power accoustik from reputable sources. My suggestion would be to go with soundstream, seeing as I personally have never had a problem with them, and their top tier subs are BADASS. I currently have a t7 12 in my trunk powered by this amp and let me tell you, it bangs for the buck.

what fuse size should i use?
Hollenize on Jan 12, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Chad,

If you wish to run the amp @1ohm, then a 200A fuse will suffice.
