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.

550 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.

900 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.

Amplifier Specifications

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.

900 watts
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.
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.

50 - 300 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
6 - 70 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.
65 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 (40 Hz)
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.

June 18, 2012

I have a 94 cherokee sport and i had this amp pushing 8 kicker comp 12s single 4 ohm subs, wired four down the line to 4 ohm load then the other four the same way and ran both sets into a 2 ohm mono load this amp pushed 8 kicker comp 12s like it was nothing. It got a little warm but so does every amp, I am very impressed, I can be heard from nearly a quarter mile a way. Great amp for the price.

WHOA!

July 15, 2008

After all the good reviews on this site and others I had to purchase this amp. 900 watts @ 2ohms for 149.99 ?? How can you possibly get a better deal than that? Performance? OUTSTANDING, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I was shocked at how much it pounded out my 15" PA FUBAR. The blue LED adds a nice touch. Better scoop up one of these before they run out of stock cause according to another site "this item has been discontinued".

December 9, 2012

This amp is a beast. Picked one up at a flea market for $50 when my Alpine MRP M1000 died and I was VERY impressed. Pushes my 2 Kicker Solo Classic 12 almost better than the Alpine. Runs warm when the Alpine heats up and goes into protect. had it benched find 972 rms at 13.8 v and a little over 1000 rms at 14.4. Sony haters are like pay 2 & 3 times the price to off their Orions, Kickers, Alpines, Sundowns but this Sony will do the job. Alpine is repaired but I'm using it as a paper weight :-))).

February 20, 2008

I recently picked up two Kicker 12" CVR's in a ported box. The final load is 4 ohm and the amp puts out 550w which is just under a perfect match (05 models were 600w RMS). This amp simply pounds the hell out of these. It never heats up at all, never cuts out, just pure raw bass. Totally worth the money. I have it hooked to a 1.0 farad cap, and through a fused distribution block which has an amp gauge to show the power being drawn. I was told since it was Sony that it would never put out the numbers it says it would, and that it would never draw the full "90 amps" that the fuses allow. Wrong. Ive seen on many occasions the gauge go up into the high 60's, low 70's. And thats not even using it to its fullest 2 ohm capability. Not only that, its CEA-2006 compliant so you can be sure the numbers aren't hyped. Great amp, highly recommended. Finally Sony is starting to make a decent product!

Now you might be thinking that sony in car audio is completely worthless. Thats what i thought until i hooked this baby up. This pumps out the bass and never gets hot. This is by far one of the best products for the price. You get a class D, Mosfet amp, that looks as good as it preforms, for a great price.

What is a good setting for my 2 comp 3 rockford 10" (subs in a behind the seat box across cab-very nice) for the D9001gtr amp? Right now its bridged with heavy guage wire as sugested. I dont know if 0 12 or 24 db is best. And how far for gain approximatly?
Thanks in advance.
Bobby L on Oct 27, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Bobby,

-Right now its bridged

This is impossible. The Sony XM-D9001GTR is Monoblock. Mono = ONE . One = ONE Channel. Bridging literally means bringing two of something together; with amplifier that would mean two channels, which an monoblock does NOT have, it is only one channel. The two outputs on the Sony XM-D9001GTR are just that, OUTPUTS and NOT channels. As such, "bridging" the two outputs does nothing but give you ONE channel instead of two.

-with heavy guage wire as sugested.

That's great. To be fair, 4 gauge (or larger) will suffice with this amplifier.

-I dont know if 0 12 or 24 db is best.

Neither is "best". If one were better than the other then Sony would have only given you that ONE option. =] . We like 24 db curves, but if you tend to listen to sharper, punchier bass music then 12 db may be more your sound.

-And how far for gain approximatly?

This is impossible to provide an answer to. But here is some instruction:
