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.

Power Specifications - Full Range Channels

Peak Power @ 4 ohms
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. 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. However, some manufacture's do not provide an RMS figure and therefore one cannot be advertised.

Bridged Peak/Max 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 Peak/Max power created once an amplifier is bridged.

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.
Brutus (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.

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.

1100 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.
<0.1%
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.
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.
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.

35 - 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.
>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 - 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.
Yes
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).
No
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
60A x 2 
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.

Yes
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

I have this amp and just bought a kicker 12 inch shallow mount dual 2 ohms, what's the best connection to get better sound at 1 ohm or at 4 ohm?
thanks
A shopper on Oct 1, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

The final impedance doesn't determine "better sound". This isn't necessarily true, but we can't go into the theory of audio at this time. Point is, the final impedance is determined by the power output vs the power handling of your setup. Being that you didn't specify what subwoofer you are referring to, we cannot answer your question accurately. However, surely you can - if your subwoofer has a power handling of ~450w then you will obviously want to wire up to 4ohms , but if you subwoofer has a power handling closer to ~1100 then you will obviously want to wire down to 1ohm.

Will this amp work for two Kicker 12 cvrs? If so can i also run this amp with my door speakers and 6x9's?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2015
Best Answer: This amp will work for your kicker's. I'm not sure about the second part of the question tho. Are you talking about hooking BOTH your subs AND your door speakers? If so then you will NOT be able to do that because the kickers equal the exact RMS of the amp. Plus its never a good idea to have both door speakers and sub woofers on the same amp

can i use this on two subwoofers?
James H on Feb 11, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

Yes. In theory, you can use this on 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, etc....subwoofers. The number of subwoofers isn't the important determining factor, its the configuration & final impedance of the subwoofers and how that compares to the amplifier's ratings. We suggest providing us a Proper Model number of the "two subwoofers" you are considering, so we can establish a better answer for you.

What guage wirewould be best for this?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

As you will see, the consensus will for 4-Gauge with a few using 0-Gauge. We HIGHLY recommend OFC 4-Guage wiring, to get the draw the amp requires. However, many of our customers instead go with 0-Guage with the Stinger SPT521 (two for Power/Ground) to get the Best performance.

Has anyone ran this amp at 1 ohm and if so any overheating? Did it handle being ran at 1 ohm?
jeff S on Sep 30, 2014
Best Answer: Hey jeff
the amp doesn't overheat or get hot ever. I've ran it at 4 ohm 2 ohm and 1 ohm impedance. I have nvx true 4 gauge power and ground optima deep cycle yellow top and it runs great at 2 and 4 but 1 it draws a lot of power. I recommend 2 ohm operation. Im just running 2 kicker 12s@ 4 ohms and I have flex on my whole car. Amp never gets hot its a kick ass amp for the price

Am I able to use this amp with an 8 guage wire? I already have the wire ran and I will not be using the amp at it's full capacity.
Gerad G on Oct 5, 2015
Best Answer: I am not a certified installer or electrician, but for a D class amplifier you want to use at least 4 gauge. It depends on how long your wiring will be from the battery/ground to amp but the longer it is the thicker the wire you will want to use. Using a smaller than recommended wire will cause a lot of heat/stress which may not end well.

is the bass remote that comes with this amp, a BASS BOOST remote? or a remote GAIN knob, and how does it work. Basically do I set the gains on the amp first, then plug the remote in and set it to max?
ant222 on Aug 21, 2014
Best Answer: Hey man just to help you the bass knob is basically for cops if your disturbing the peace. This amp is great for 2 ohm operation I'm pushing 2 kicker cvrs. You set the gain on the amp. The knob is simply a way to turn your amp on and off. All the way down, 3/4 up, all the way up how you set it. Get it? If not reply or if it helps let me know.

Best Answer: Make sure you are connecting both the Positive and negative coming from the sub to just one of the positives and one of the negatives in the amp. Maybe turn down the low pass filter to about half way and use the remote to turn the gain down a little.

I heard the class D have more distortion than A/B, Is that make sense?
Steve on Feb 25, 2015
Best Answer: I don't have experience with class A/B, but I have not had any distortion with this amo at all. Class A/B amps usually do have a cleaner sound, but don't give you as much power or bass as class Ds.

is this amp good enough for my rockford fosgate p3 shallow mounts? i have 2 12s 4 ohm each
alejandro t on Feb 11, 2015
Best Answer: I got 2 15" rockford's with 600 rms, and this amp kicks tail! One hell of a buy! Clear sound, great power and punch! Works hard and rarely shuts off...if ever. A definite say buy! But this amp shoots out 1100 watts so that has to balance closely to your rms power, because if the amp is to small you could blow the speakers/subs. There is always the option of turning the gain down but try to match the power output from the amp to the rms of the speaker.

Ex. 2 twelve inch subs with 500 rms each equals 1000 rms so to speak, so thats a fairly good match!

No output from amplifier. I recently disconnected my box from my amp the other day to make room in my trunk. A couple days later I hooked it back up and now Im not getting anything out of my sub's. The power light is on the amp, protect mode is off. Nothing else was touched. I simply disconnected the speaker wires from the sub's. Any ideas?
Thanks, Ec

Am I able to use this amp with an 8 guage wire? I already have the wire ran and I will not be using the amp at it's full capacity. I am mainly wanting to use it since this has a bass knob where as my BRX 160.2 does not. I am only using it for on 10" sub
Gerad G on Oct 5, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Gerad,

We highly recommend going with larger wire. 8 Gauge is only suitable for 200-400 Watt systems, and That is assuming the wiring is proper OFC wiring. Regardless of "using the amp at it's full capacity" or not, the current draw and efficiency is the most important idea to keep in mind. You may instead want to lookin into a Universal Remote Level Control, so you can keep your current amplifier.

Best Answer: Hello Shane,

-Hey I got a question I bought this and [[and also to 4]] on TNT 1244 American bass subwoofers.

Hi Shane, we don't understand this sentence - specifically the part in the brackets. So we've taken it out of your question.

-is what is the amp gain post be set to if you could help me with this that would be great thank you?

What I like to know is what that is the RMS on one channel and will I need a capacitor for this amp and if I do what size?
shane p on Feb 26, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Shane,

-What I like to know is what that is the RMS on one channel

We aren't sure what you are asking here, can you elaborate a bit please. =] . All the ratings are in the description, there isn't anything beyond that to tell.

-will I need a capacitor for this amp and if I do what size?

That depends on your, your vehicle and the setup itself - we can't answer any of those things. However, we can say that MOST vehicles will need a little help if you wish to run this amp at 1ohm AND IF you plan on driving the setup fairly hard. Of course, this changes if your vehicle is - say - a Hummer with a beefy electrical system. We aren't mechanics, so we can't tell you how the vehicle is going to react, so we often suggest holding off on a cap until AFTER the setup is in.

What bass knob can i get for this?
Michael C on Oct 21, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

Unfortunately there isn't a replacement knob for this amplifier. However, we highly recommend considering a Universal Remote Level Control, like the NVX XBRC.

I have ran two alpine type s at 1 ohm and the amp has never even got warm but i was wondering if this amp will work for two type r's till i can get the mono hifonics brx 2000. Would this amp be way under powering them? The r's say they can handle 300-1000 rms and they would be at about 550 rms give or take at 1 ohm.I just don't want to mess up two new subs.

Best Answer: Hell Steven,

You answered your own question within your question.

The SWR-12D4 is asking for power within 300-1000w RMS. The BRX1100.1D will provide ~550w RMS to each driver, which is well within the 300-1000w RMS. This means it will work, and will not harm your subwoofers.

On the contrary, the plan of putting the BRX2000 may very well harm your drivers. Just because Alpine says the subwoofer can handle up to 1k , doesn't mean you should. That is the equivalent of Red Lining your vehicle at all times Just because it can....disastrous right?

Like previous models, the magic number is 750w RMS , that the SWR are happy at. This means you may want to consider the Hifonics X1500.1D instead.

This is not to say that we completely discourage you going with the 2k; However, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you are providing the amp the cleanest signal possible, and - obviously - be responsible. We also would hate for you to 'mess up two new subs', especially sense blown subs are not covered under warranty. Plan accordingly.

I bought this amp to push 2 alpine type s 10" subs. They are dual 4 ohms subs. How do I wire the speakers to the amp for a one ohm load? Do I make jumper wires for the other terminal lugs or do I wire the subs separately? Thanks

what's the difference between this amp Hifonics Brutus BRX1200.1D and Hifonics BRX1100.1D? they both do 800 watts rms at 2 ohm they will power 2 Kenwood KFC-W3013PS 12" subs and do they both hook up at 2 ohms the same way like u stated with my last quest "You can give each subwoofer its own output OR wire them together in parallel then use one output, both methods will show a 2ohm final load at the amp .
(IT DOES NOT MATTER WHICH METHOD YOU CHOOSE!)" for this Hifonics Brutus BRX1200.1D
