Amplifier Power Specifications

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.
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.
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 speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 1 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.
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage. 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. This is the peak power output for the amplifier's 5th channel.

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 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
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.

200 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.
8 AWG
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.
No
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.

20 - 150 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
20 - 50 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 - 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
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.
15A x 2 
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

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
200 watts
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
200 watts
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
600 watts
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements.
600 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
90 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 150 Hz
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

Enclosure Specifications

Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Final Wired Impedance
This is the final impedance of the system as the amplifier will see it. If the final impedance is for two sets, it means that the enclosure has two sets of terminals at the listed impedance.

Boss bass 600 , Great value for the buck!!

October 21, 2009

I bought this for my 2009 Suzuki SX4 to replace the stock under seat sub that came stock in the car. I have to say it works good! The bass was clean and full. It won't rattle the mirrors or bother anyone next to you, but would be a nice addition to enhance the lower end in any stock or aftermarket system. If you are looking to fill out the lower end of your stock system I would buy one.

Awesome product

September 11, 2009

Used in conjunction with a high-powered JVC head unit driving the CDT door and rear parcel shelf speakers. IIRC, 50 (continuous, full range, no BS) watts per channel. The highest I have ever seen on a headunit.

For anyone looking for a balanced, well rounded, system this little bass-wonder will fill in that bottom-end nicely. Works terrific under the passenger seat of my sub-compact 93' Sentra.

Between the JVC/CDT combination and the Boss sub, it sounds every bit as good, if not better than, the "fancy-schmancy" OEM Bose upgraded system in my 2004 Tahoe.

It would not be enough for a large vehicle (my Tahoe for instance) or youngsters who are "bass heads" that want their trunk to rattle. Those applications would not be suitable for this product. (Boss also makes a "1200" version of this sub, bigger driver, more power).

The features, inputs, and outputs are superb. Easy to understand, fiddle with, and get it just right.

For it's intended use and price, it is magnificent. Tight, clean, well rounded bass output to enhance the sound quality in a reasonably sized vehicle. I get more SPL's (adult level "really loud") than I will ever need, even with the windows down, it is plenty loud and clean on the freeway.

For the price, or double the price, this subwoofer is amazing.

Good little sub

November 8, 2007

This sub works perfectly for those who dont want hear-stopping bass but are looking for a little extra low end boost. The Boss BASS-600 fits nicely under the seat (assuming they are not power seats) or in the trunk area without taking up too much space. All-in-all, a 10.

March 1, 2010

I bought the BASS-600 to add some nice deep sound to my new car stereo. The stereo had a subwoofer line-out that I wanted to use.
I looked at many sub boxes and speakers but they all were going to take up lots of room in my trunk. When I saw the Boss BASS-600 with all the electronics included in the small box that fits under the drivers seat I had to give it a shot. Now it Will Not thump like the bigs in your trunk but it blends in Very Deep Lows that make my car stereo sound like it should be in a porsche.
And for $15 more you could pick up the Boss BASS-1200. With a 10 in. speaker and 1200 Watts of power. I think I could have fit the 1200 under the driver seat but I'm Extremely Satisfied with my Boss BASS-600.

Very good Bass for the price and space required !

February 24, 2010

I own a Toyota Echo hatchback, which has 4 very small speakers. ( 4 inch and 5 1/2 )
The stock radio is good, but has absolutely no bass when compared to a Toyota Matrix with larger speakers.
I first wanted a full size sub, but decided to go with a unit that could fit under the passenger seat.
The installation went well, and all I can say is WOW ! The sound is now much more enjoyable than in the Matrix !
Ok, it does not have the power of a larger sub, but its a huge improvement over stock, AND it does not take valuable trunk space.

If you want window shattering bass, you wont be satisfied...
But when listening music at reasonable levels, the bass is very good, and well balanced.

I then upgraded the stock speakers with better ones and installed Dynamatt in doors.

Now the sound is really satisfying for such a small and cheap car for less than 300$ total :)

Thanks Sonic !

I installed it in the trunk of my Honda Goldwing. It fit nicely, was an easy install, and greatly enhances my factory system. What a difference when I flip the switch and the bass kicks in! I feel it was a great value and I'd recommend to anyone that wants to get a little more depth to their sound without spending a ton of money.

If your looking to rattle the neighbors’ windows, maybe not.
But if you appreciate good clear low frequency bass this is for you.
It occupies minimal space and looks great! Your friends will be asking you, from where did you get it!

Excellent sound in a compact package, I suspect it allows more base at a lower overall volume because it is installed under the passenger seat. This means I do not end up looking like a gray haired idiot at stoplights because of a too loud stereo.

I bought this boss bass 600 and I was amazed. Small yet powerfull enough to provide a decent kick and very good sorround bass. Dont expect 12" sw performance. This will provide quality sound that will complement the factory speakers sound. Also I installed some 10 dollars tweeters in the front door to compensate the treble sound. I installed the boss bass 600 under the front passanger seat. Just check underseat space clereance...
