Quality without the Cost

The Audiopipe Consumer Line series amplifiers were reengineered from the ground up in 2012 to provide plenty of high quality power for even the highest end sound system while keeping their footprint as compact as possible. Audiopipe didn’t skimp on the internals of these amps, the Consumer Line features the finest in electronic protection circuitry to protect against harmful short circuits, thermal overloads and overheating. These premium choice amplifiers are sure to impress.

Oversized Toroids for Better Sound

Oversized Toroids for Oversized Sound

The Consumer Line amplifiers are built with performance in mind, and a quick look under the hood of these amplifiers reveal oversized toroids. These toroids (basically just wire coils) help to regulate the voltage in the amplifier. By overbuilding them, Audiopipe ensures that every CL series amp puts out even, consistent power for the best possible sound, and the longest life from your components.

Outstanding Heat Dissipation

The Finest in Heat Dissipation

When redesigning the Consumer Line series, Audiopipe took great care in designing an amplifier that would not overheat. These amps feature a high quality aluminum heat sink with cooling fins running along each side and grills embedded in the top plate to ensure outstanding heat dissipation and prevent any unwanted heat related shutdowns.

Compatible with 16V Systems

16V System Compatibility

The Audiopipe Consumer Line Class D monoblock amps are intended for hard hitting sound, so much so that they were designed for compatibility with 16V vehicle electrical systems. Because the CL series amps are capable of accepting a higher voltage than the standard 12V amplifier, they are able to produce much more power.




Sonic Electronix Power Certified Amplifier

Audiopipe's APCL-15001D monoblock amplifier is a Sonic Electronix Certified Amplifier. This amp's power output has been professionally tested with our SMD Amplifier Dyno, bringing you it's true power ratings.

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.
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 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.

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.
Consumer Line (Audiopipe)
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 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.

1500 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.
0.05%
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.
Mono output
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)
Subsonic
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.

40 - 180 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
5 - 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.
70 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 - 12 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
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
100A x 1 
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.
Yes
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
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.

September 8, 2014

man, i have this amp in my 2010 chrysler 300 on 4 M124 powerbass 12" subs. I had them wired at 1 ohm. I did'nt have nothing on the amp turned up. It was just to much power for my subs, so i wired them down to 4 ohms. Everything turned up half way. It is beating like crazy. In October i am getting some RE.I will tell you about it later. But, this is a good amp, it really has more power than it says.

Great amp for the money

April 30, 2015

I bought this amp to replace a Kenwood amp that I had been running for quite a while paired up with two Rockford Fosgate P3D4-10's in a large ATREND ported box bridged at 1 ohm. The Kenwood was getting old and isn't 1 ohm stable in the first place. The difference between these two amps is incredible! The notes are tight, the sound is very crisp and clear and the amp doesn't get hot. It gets warm to the touch, but I've never had it get hot. And I tend to push my system a little hard. Even if it is only two tens. They're insanely loud for a couple of tens. If you're looking for an amp that can make good power for under $200, this is the way to go, hands down! Love the amp

audiopipe disappointment

June 4, 2015

I have a 1000 watt, 4 channel audiopipe and I'm very disapointed with it. Every time I crank it up with a heavy metal band I like, on about the third or fourth song it starts overheating and it temporarily shuts down. I know its overheating because I touch the amp and its very hot. When I touch the rockford fosgate punch amp, which is connected to a 10 inch sub., it runs a lot cooler than the audiopipe. Again very disapointed. Hope they make them a lot better.

First purchase from SE!

July 3, 2015

I will come back and add my thoughts and opinions on the actual amplifier, i received the amplifier and after installing it i noticed it was a factory defect. The review is for SE, i contacted them and they responded in less then 24hours. I then shipped it back the next day and a day later i was notified a new one was on its way back, i have to say i was worried that the exchange was going to be a huge hassle but it could not have been better. Once i get it back i will report on actual amplifier but as far as SE, 10 out of 10!

December 30, 2015

My first Amplifier and Sub-woofer install. I would love to say it went smooth but every install will have its hiccups. I still need to upgrade my alternator and add an extra battery. I used a SMD DD-1 (Great tool) to help with tuning my Pioneer deck and amplifier through the amplifier. I have the gain on the amp a quarter the way up and this thing still pounds distortion free! Paired with a HDS3 12" Dual 2 ohm Sub-woofer from SoundQubed in a Atrend Box specifically tuned for that sub. Great Value for what you pay. This amp as i seen on youtube does Rated and even more at half ohm but i wont go down that low because i don't want to void my warranty so I'll just stick to 1ohm load :)!

Round two!

December 29, 2015

Had this amp for 8 months and it was very powerful and sounded good but went into protect for no apparent reason. Sonic was great though and sent out a new replacement ASAP. New one is working perfect so far. Not thrilled about the looks but these amps are very hard to beat for the money. I believe the 1st one was just a bad apple. I don't expect this one to fail. It was the 1st amp that ever failed me in nearly 30 years of having systems. Hopefully the last.

Best budget amp available.

October 27, 2016

Best budget amp available. Excellent power and sounds great. I have and had alot of expensive, high end amplifiers and this audiopipe hangs right in there with them. I only question their durability. My 1st one started smoking after 4 months. Havent had any issues yet with my second one. I would def purchase if your on a budget. Just make sure your using 4 guage power and ground and set your gain correctly. Im running mine on 2 sundown sa12d4 rev 3s @ 1ohm and my gain isnt even a quarter of the way up and my subs are moving big time. They are loud and sound clean, no distortion at all.

Went from an 1100w Rms 1 ohm stable Memphis amp to audiopipe. I actually like the look of this amp. Hooked up to one kicker l7 12, 2ohm dvc. Sub-1500w max/750w Rms. Wired at 1 ohm. This thing has some power so be sure to use a multimeter for adjusting gain to voltage/rms watts of your sub/subs/head unit. MORE THAN ENOUGH power for MY setup. Gain knob also works well so far. So far the power of this amp beats the Memphis amp I had. Shipping was fast and problem free. Thanks a ton sonic electronix! 😀

Very powerful amp! Ordered for my BD3 12 and it pushes it like its nothing. Amp is turned down under halfway. Going to order another BD3 12 to run on this amp, it should push both no problem at all! For the price audiopipe is the way to go.

Audiopipe APCL

June 27, 2016

I recommend this amp to true bass heads. This amp will show you what you've been missing. I am pushing two type r 15 dvc 2 at two ohms. The amps gain is halfway up and it's plenty. Before this amp I was running a 5000 watt Anarchy amp and that was beefy. But this slaps. I bought 2. Only negative is it's a light dimmer. So now it's time to upgrade to a 2nd battery and that were the bass is going to be hardest.

Great operarion, decent look and can be strapped. Only complaint is that the power and speaker inputs are philips screws instead of alen.

Beastly amp

June 4, 2016

The Audiopipe APCL-15001D Is toHertz HX 250D sub. I will be putting it on two. I wouId give it more stars, but I have not had time to fully test its capabilities. The 1 draw back is, the supplied Fuse holder is HUUUGE. It creates mounting issues all by itself.

Had to send the first unit back. It was shutting off and going into protect mode. Second one overheats on occasion especially at competitions. Good solid power but reliability is meh.

Wow, Very impressive,

April 23, 2016

I purchased this amp to replace my Sundown saz 1200d amp while it was being repaired and to use it as a temp replacement. But let me tell you, this amp is the shiznit. I always use high end car audio equipment in my vehicles but this audiopipe amp kicks ass. It def puts out the power if you use it correctly. The sq is unbelievable for a 150.00 budget amp. If it holds up and dosent fall apart or burn up, it will be one of my top 5 amp purchases of all time. I highly recommend this amplifier. Dont flinch because it says audiopipe. Its a little baddass amplifier. I might even purchase another.

I couldnt have purchased a better amp. this amp has exceeded my expectations. IM very impressed with the amount of power it produces. Even with it being turned just about all the way down, it makes my subs rumble just the way i like it. I seriously recommed this amp to anyone with 12'' subs.

This amp has plenty of headroom when you want to feed your bass needs if you have drivers that cant handle this kind of power you will definitely want to take time to have your system tuned properly or you will be buying new drivers soon after your purchase. This audiopipe 1500 does allmost all of its rated power but beware its very power hungry a better battery a stronger alternator a good supply of power is needed or you wont get what this amp wants to give you. If you want the best bang for your buck don't think about it do it do it do it.

Solid amp but needs better cooling.

October 1, 2015

Strong amp. Good bang for your buck. Liked the older model AP15001D better. This model gets hot and goes into protect even only running at 1 ohm with adequate electrical to back it. Adding a fan fixes the issue, but I think they could have done a better job on tooling the new heat sink, although it looks great.

I would recommend this amp for the budget minded basshead if you don't mind having to add a fan.

Pros: solid amp, does close to rated, very budget friendly

Cons: only the overheating issue

Good amp, lowsy customer service

September 8, 2015

I really liked this amp. The adjustable freq on the bass boost made for some awesome sound. Drove the NVX I had it hooked to beautifully. After only two months it went into protect and wouldnt come out. Sadly I made the mistake of not buying from Sonic. The company only handles returns for 30 days. I had to deal with Audiopipe.
After waiting a week for customer service to get back to me(apparently they only have one and he was on vacation), I received a series of hoops to jump through and was then informed I would need to pay shipping BOTH ways. With the insurance to cover the cost of the amp, packaging (didn't have any lying around) this came out to almost $70. Half of what I paid for it.
Buy it from Sonic. They handle returns for a year which is how long most companies warranty their product anyway. Learn from my mistake, and my headache.

i plan on running this with a soundqubed hs312 @1 ohm, i currently have a 4ga power wire in my car. would i need to bump it up to 0ga?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2015
Best Answer: Hey as long as it's ofc and are under 20 feet you should be right around the max 4 Guage can handle just make sure your seeker wire is sufficient as well. Google (wire/fuse guide chart smd) I have 0 to my fuses then 4 to the amp and 8 Guage for speaker wire. I'm running 2 strapped on 4 sa 12's dual 4's these things push some awesome power they surprise me every day crazy loud not many people can handle how loud it is lol ??

Could this handle 2 12's kicker comp s subwoofers at 4 ohms okay? They are 300 watts each
JGrock on Apr 16, 2015
Best Answer: If the 2 woofers are able to be wired together to a total 4 ohm load yes that will work. Be careful with this amp tho, set your gains carefully using a multimeter and the equation: power=square root of (rms x ohms)

I have this amp and looking for a pair of good 12s or a single 15 i could run? i was running a Alpine Type R 15 and tuned amp via this website using DMM running 2 ohms and completely froze up sub in under 10 mins
michael b on Mar 30, 2016
Best Answer: Well you do have a great amp that makes lots of clean power. If it was up to me I would run a NVX VCW154 at 2 ohms, that should sound great in a ported box. Or you could run a pair of Audiopipe TXX-BD2-12 at 1 ohm also in a ported box. Either way you go it'll sound good as long as you make adjustments to the amp. Hope this helps, good luck!

How do I bridge this amp?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: Hi shopper, this Audiopipe amplifier is mono block, which means it runs in bridge mode. What ohm are your subs & are they single or dual voice? If you have a pair of 4ohm single voice then the amp will run @ 2 ohms. (notice both positives are side by side and the same for the negatives) By doing this just use the positive closes to the power side which is the outside one and the negative which is inside to one sub. Then use the inside positive and the outside negative to the other sub. But if you have a pair of 4ohm dual voice then the amp will run @ 1 ohm. Then just use the outside positive and the outside negative, be sure you wire in positive to positive from one sub to the other, do the same for the negative. Hope this helps and didn't confused you on how to wire your sub(s).

will this amp power efficiently 2 kicker l7s 15 4 ohms to 1 0hm? should i buy 2 or will this suffice? thanks in advance.
mike f on Sep 3, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Mike,

We assume you mean the Kicker S15L74 (11S15L74), DUAL-4ohm . Of which, each is asking for ~1000w RMS. So, although two will work just fine on this ONE amplifier, if you want to reach the full potential of the driver, it is better off with one amp for EACH driver.
