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.

240 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.

400 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

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.
Picasso (Soundstream)
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.

600 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
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
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)
High-Pass (HP)
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 - 150 Hz
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.
No
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.

No
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

I have owned this amp for over 2 months now. It was originally pushing 2 Audiobahn Aw1200V 12s @ 1ohm. I ended up frying 1 speaker due to abuse that 1 of then had been through years ago. This amp is now pushing 2 Audiopipe TXX-BD2-12s @ 1 ohm. The amp is amazing, with the features, size and power. It is a small amp but don't think it's not packing a punch. There variable subsonic filter, gain, included bass remote and adjustable volt range selector allow this amp to deliver hard hitting bass with variable features. 1 Ohm stable allows wiring customization. Even after playing at max volume for hours the amp will get slightly warm to the touch, but not hot at all. I have no complaints about this amp as it delivers and stays fairly cool under hours of pressure. Great bang for the buck! Would recommend to anyone who seeks mid to low range power for cost efficiency.

Very pleased

September 18, 2014

I installed this amp in my brother's Scion XB. It is pushing a Sundown E15D2, wired in parrallel. It has more than enough power, the settings are more than ample for a simple setup.

The only gripe I have is that the screw terminals are really cheaply made. Overall though, for the money, this amp is awesome. Don't hesitate to order and install this amplifier.

Fantastic Amp!

October 2, 2015

I have used this amp for a couple months and this amp is great! It's well built, easy to use, and puts out plenty of power. I have it pushing a Kicker Comp S in my truck and it has been trouble free. For the money you can't beat this amp. I highly recommend it!

Exactly what I needed

April 27, 2016

Used this for my first audio install. Needed a mono amp that wasn't going to break the bank. Wired this to 2 ohms pushing 400 watts rms to a single sundown audio E8D4 rev4. Performs great. Saw another review that someone paired with a E15 and worked great.
Highly recommend this amp if you aren't planning on running too much power. I have a stock electrical system in my TC and no headlight dimming at all. Great budget/small system amplifier.

Pros: compact, nice design, great performance, great price

Cons: claims to be 1 ohm stable but doesn't recommend anything under 2 ohms which pushed me towards getting a dual 4 ohm subwoofer instead of a dual 2 ohm. Not sure how it would perform at full power.

i have 2 Rockford Fosgate p1-12s an need to know the correct way these should be wired on a soundstream p1.600 to get the best sound?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

In order to provide accurate information, we need accurate information first. "Rockford Fosgate p1-12s" only tells us the manufacture, series, and size, but completely omits the configuration. This is why a MODEL NUMBER is best, not a description. You can literally mean one of a few different options: http://goo.gl/0KqJFY or http://goo.gl/TR0cTD .

No matter which it is, the specific wiring doesn't necessarily provide "the best sound" it simply provides the correct configuration/match. We'll get to that later though. Please replay, resubmit, or forward your inquiry - with the proper information - to [email protected] .
