Same amp as the ppi 900.5 and a few other 5 channel amps
Michael H on Jun 9, 2016
I have read that if you're going to mount an amp sideways that the fins on the sides need to be vertical. would it be bad to mount them horizontally? So in the case of this amp I would be mounting it as shown in the picture, with the long narrow sides (13"x2") facing up and down while the long wide side (13"x6") would face away from the wall it is being mounted on. The short narrow sides (2"x6") would be vertical and everything would be pretty well ventilated...
Thanks for any help!
Nick F on Sep 21, 2016
Best Answer: The mounting of the amp is not as important as how the amp is mounted. By that I mean giving proper air flow to the amp you don't want any tight space. When you mount the amp just make sure that it has proper airflow front back sides the best way for the back side where you and Mona 2 A/C box you and you need to use a spacer so it's not tight to it to allow proper air flow sometimes even mounting a fan for 9 bucks from RadioShack will make a huge difference in the performance and longevity of the amp

Best Answer: I'm not able to say anything about the alpine amp. But the nvx has done me well. I have 4 type s alpine speakers (2 component, 2 2-way) and a jl cp108 micro sub. Running from a Kentwood headunit. It powers everything perfectly. I actually hav to turn down the gain on the door speakers a bit because they're drowning out the sub. Could use a bigger sub. But I'm pleased with the overall sound. Would recommend this amp to anyone. Clean and powerful with a small footprint.

I have this exact amp but it tends to get really hot after about 5 minutes of play. It also gets hot even at zero volume. I have this hooked up to all my factory Logic 7 HK speakers in my w211. Any clue to why this is happening? Thanks
David T on Jul 18, 2016
Best Answer: Not sure this would answer why his amp is getting so hot but couple things to consider or look at might include:
1) did you use appropriate gauge power and ground wire? I used 4 gauge.
2) are your speakers rated at appropriate impedance for this amp? I'm running Polk mm651 at 2 ohms.
3) have you adjusted your front, rear and subsonic levels or are they all jacked up all the way to the right? (200mV) reduce down if so.
4) did you mount your amp where it can breath and get some air flow?

My amp does not get hot.

Hello. Can anyone help me?
My question is - How does this NVX JAD900.5 amplifier compare to say the JL HD900/5 , Alpine PDX-V9, Arc Audio XDiv2 1100.5 in terms of car system electrical efficiency?
Does it pull current where I would need to upgrade my alternator & add a second battery. I once had the a JL HD900/5 and it pulled next to no current and I had a constant 14.0 v reading... is this NVX amp comparable? My car is a stock 2006 Honda Pilot . Any answers would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!
CHRISTOPHER C on Jan 31, 2016
Best Answer: I have two of these amps, in separate vehicles,both running on stock alternator with only the stock battery. However each of those vehicles also have had the big 3 upgrade done which will make sure you charging system is the best It can be. They also both have good AGM batteries in them. I have not had any voltage issues, light dimming issue, or the like and they both read over 14v all the time. I think you will be fine with the big 3 upgrade and making sure everything else in the system is at its best. I added a link to NVX big three kit which should have what you need in it.

I only have one set of RCAs from my deck. Can I run the whole system with one set or do I need two in order for the sub channel to operate properly?
Brian M on Dec 30, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Brian,

By "one set" I assume you mean one "Pair" (Just 1 Red & 1 White). Which will NOT work. Technically, you can split the RCAs, but that will Dramatically degrade the signal to the amp, and you will not get the desired performance. The fifth channel will - in theory - work with just a pair, but then you will NOT get signal to given pair of channels.
You have a few options to work around this.
1) A new headunit will be the easiest solution. Maybe not the most cost effective, but definitely the most practical.
2) Using a Processor or LOC. This will allow you to take the 4channels of HIGH LEVEL outs from your headunit, and convert them to RCA. Two Kicker KISLOC or one AudioControl LC7i. The KISLOC will be the Cheapest solution, but will only be "so-so" Sound Quality. The LC7i is a processor, so it will give you Superb SQ!
3) Using an Equalizer. EQs like the NVX EQ7 & Clarion EQS746 have the ability to take ONE input (like the Only one your headunit provides) and PROPERLY splitting that signal to give you THREE Channels (Front/Rear/Sub). In addition, it is obviously an EQ, so now you can fine tune the system as well.

I have a 2007 Honda Pilot- all stock.

How efficient is this amp with a stock electrical system?

I am looking into this amp compared to the JL XD series but I am kinda broke. Does anybody have any advice on it working fine with my electrical system... I don't want to get a High Output alternator- would I need one with this amp?

Can somebody help?


CHRISTOPHER C on Sep 12, 2016
Best Answer: To be honest, this amp is as eficient as it can be for the size. Compared to a 10yr old class A/B 75 x 4 channel and 420 x 1 class D I had before this amp, there's no more dimming lights anymore and the battery doesnt drain while tuning on accessory power for 30min. It does get hot, but not much.

Just wondering, can you run the four full range channels on a 4 ohm load while at the same time running the subwoofer channel on a 2 ohm load?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2015
Best Answer: The full range channels (for speakers) and subwoofer channel are separate so yes, you can hookup the system as you described.

Full range channels: 70W x 4 channels (for 4-ohm speakers) or 105W x 4 channels (for 2-ohm speakers)
Subwoofer channel: 210W x 1 channel (for 4-ohm subwoofer) or 380W x 1 channel (for 2-ohm subwoofer)

Can this be mounted upside down?
Jason F on Mar 25, 2015
Best Answer: I have mine mounted on the back of my seat, I would Imagine upside down would be fine as there's no moving parts aside from the fan. It's a pretty small amp considering the 5 channels.

Bought this amp for 8 sub for now but idk how to set up the gains and etc need help ajusting for one sub start finish?
hec j on Aug 22, 2016
Best Answer: 8 " sub or for 8 subwoofers. 1. Either way any amp u set the gains all the way down to start.
2. Turn radio volume up to about 90 percent.
3. Start to turn up gains on amp starting with rear channels just to right before the diistortion kicks in.
4. Now do same for the front gain.
5. Now do the sub gain.
6. Now u have a starting point. U can lower the gains on ya channela to make the sound fealmore likesurround

Can you run one front channel at 2ohm back channel at 4ohm and then the subwoofer at 2ohm?
Shane M on Nov 30, 2015
Best Answer: Yes. The amplifier is stable at those impedances. Use high quality power wire, make sure you have a proper ground, and mount the amp where it will have ample clearance for cooling shouldn't have any issues, Shane.

Yes. But please give our sales team a call so that they can make sure your figures and plan match correctly.

-and will this drain my battery, dim lights, etc... If it helps, I've got a red optima battery?

That is impossible to tell. We don't know the current state of your electrical system. Generally speaking, it will likely Not dim/drain/etc..

I need a wiring diagram for installing 2 Nvx jad900.5 amps. Is it possible to do? Any help is welcome. Came to Sonic Electronix for answers due to the knowledge I've seen Brent & Allen show on YouTube. Hopefully someone can help me. Btw keep up those clean installs guys.
Brad M on Dec 26, 2015
Best Answer: Hey Brad,

Possible? Absolutely. You can wire up infinite amount of amplifiers in a vehicle. The only limitation is the electrical load and physical space. There isn't anything fancy about wiring two 5-Channel amps, however. As such, there aren't any "diagrams" to provide - it is a very basic install. Simply pick up a Dual Amplifier Wiring Kit or Build one of your own. The NVX XAPK1D is a good example of what you need; A 0 Gauge main, a distribution block, and enough 4 Gauge wiring for for both power and ground for each amplifier respectively. Again, this is a very basic install, as you are just performing the install Twice over as you would for a "typical" install. We highly recommend consulting a hands-on professional if it gets beyond your comfort.

I recently purchased the NVX JAD900.5 and the PPI P65c3. Does it make sense to run the amp in bridge mode and have the PPIs running bridged on the passive crossover or switch to 4 channel mode, take the woofers off the passive crossover and on the amp's rear channel, with the mids and tweets still on the passive crossover using the front channel? The head unit is a Pioneer AVH-X4800. Thanks!
