Our take on the Clarion XC1410

by Buck Pomerantz
Clarion

My system has plenty of power. Who needs an amp?

You might think you don't need an amp because you have a 400-watt system in your car, or because your new stereo puts out 50 watts a channel. But those are peak wattage ratings, which may boil down to 15 or 20 watts per channel, using the more realistic RMS rating. An amp sends your speakers the power they need to deliver your music with clarity and impact, whether you're using factory speakers or high-performance components. And low-frequency reproduction requires lots of power, so an amp is an absolute must if you're adding a sub to your system.

It's a micro powerhouse

Clarion's XC1410 4-channel amp delivers 50 watts RMS per channel from a chassis that's about as long and wide as a dollar bill. This micro-sized amp can fit almost anywhere, even behind many dashboards. And Clarion managed to pack more watts per square inch inside the XC1410 than almost any other 4-channel amp made. The XC1410's circuits are coated for protection, so this amp is a great candidate for use in Jeeps, boats, and other challenging applications.

Super-clean signal

The XC1410's circuit design resists the electronic noise common in cars, so you will enjoy clean, distortion-free music. Soft turn-on and turn-off circuitry prevents potentially damaging thumps to your system as it powers on or off. Selectable high-pass filters help you clarify the sound by eliminating the extremely low bass that your speakers can't reproduce. You'll appreciate the high-level inputs that give you the ability to hook this amp up to almost any system, even those like factory stereos without RCA-type connections.

Highlights:

  • 4-channel car amplifier
  • 50 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (75 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms)
  • non-bridgeable, 2-ohm stable per channel
  • CEA-2006 compliant
  • Class D amp technology
  • coated circuit board — suitable for marine applications (not waterproof)
  • built-in ground loop isolation circuitry reduces input noise
  • selectable high-pass filters (60 or 90 Hz, 12 dB/octave)
  • preamp and speaker-level inputs
  • 10-gauge power and ground leads recommended — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
  • fuse rating: 20A x 1
  • dimensions: 8-1/4"W x 1-9/16"H x 2-3/4"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

RCA Inputs: The Clarion XC1410 has two pair (front and rear) of female RCA inputs. When using these inputs, set the gain switch to Low.

Speaker Level Inputs: The speaker-level inputs are 9-1/2" wires attached to the amp. When using the speaker-level inputs, set the gain switch to High.

Crossover: The built-in high pass crossover can be set to 90 Hz, 60 Hz, or Flat (the crossover is bypassed and the output is full range). The crossover slope is 12 dB/octave.

Power Harness: The included power harness plugs into a pigtail harness attached to the amp, for a total of 15" power and ground wires. The power wire should be connected directly to the battery, so it will likely need to be extended; Clarion recommends 10-gauge as the minimum power and ground wire size. An in-line fuse holder on the power wire holds the included 25-amp ATO style fuse.

Speaker Output Harness: The included speaker output harness plugs into a pigtail harness attached to the amp, for a total of 15" speaker wires. The remote turn-on wire is also in the speaker output harness.

Great things do come in small packages

Written By Ron, Cary, NC on Monday, March 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased the Clarion XC1410 amp to compliment the Kenwood head unit and Kicker speakers that I was installing in my 2005 MINI Cooper S Convertible to replace the dying Harman Kardon sound system. Once finished, this little amp drives the new speakers harder than the HK system did with the factory speakers. The sound quality is crisp, clear, and the bass is better than the HK ever delivered, even before I added the Sound Ordnance powered amp to the setup a few days later. I am very happy with this product, and its small size allows it to fit neatly in the back of the vehicle and behind the side panel, like a factory-installed product would. I was skeptical that I could top the sound quality and performance of the HK system, but this amp in combination with the Kenwood KDC-358U blows the HK away. Add to it the Sound Ordnance B-8PTD powered subwoofer, and this MINI is a rockin'! Keep in mind, if you are replacing the MINI HK sound system with a new one, you need to run new speaker wires, and I did, but it was not as hard to do as I thought it would be. Get yourself a Chilton's or similar MINI service manual, and it will show you how to pull everything apart in the MINI that you need to pull out to run the new wires. Crutchfield's notes do not show a lot of this, but their technical support team was top-notch in responding to my questions via phone.
Pros:
Small size, good power, excellent sound quality.
Cons:
None!

Wow!

Written By JaredW, Central, NE on Saturday, January 25, 2014
 
First off, I tend to research hours and hours before buying something like an amp even if it is only in the $100 range. I seen these when the first came out a year or so ago and was a little skeptical so I waited until some reveiws started showing up. Well, I pulled the trigger on one of these last week. I am running it in an 04 SCrew Ford with a Kenwood Excelon 697 deck and 6x8 infinity kappas all around. The main reason for getting an amp is because the Kappas would make my old Kenwood clip out after listening to it loud for about 5 minutes. So this is what brought me to this Clarion. Install is very simple with basic stereo knowledge. Got it all hooked up last night and WOW!! My Kappas scream now. Can't even believe how much this amp makes a difference. If this thing impresses me it is sure to impress you as I am very picky and it takes a lot to impress me on items like this, especially for a little over $100. Worth every penny. I will be getting another one for my CJ7 no questions asked. Turn it up!
Pros:
small, hides almost anywhere. Easy install. Basically just as advertised.
Cons:
Not a single one as of yet.

Lots of clean power in a small package- Installed in Jeep TJ

Written By Mike, Casper Wyoming on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This amp is solid, not too heavy and small. The amp surprised me when we fired up the system, very little distortion at full tilt. This amp fit right behind my Kenwood KDC-BT755HD. If you lack mounting space, this amp should be on your short list. Don't forget to connect the "blue wire" to your stereo's blue wire (you will know what I mean, if your amp doesn't power up).
Pros:
Night and Day difference in sound. Output Power to physical Size ratio is fantastic. Super easy to install. Fit right behind my stereo (Jeep TJ)
Cons:
None

Great little amp. Can't believe how much power it puts out. i have it an 85 diesel k5 blazer with no insulation or sound damping in it what so ever, so its really loud. I would have to play my radio at full volume and it would always distort the sound. With this amp i play the radio at just over half and can't even hear the truck any more my speakers sound 100x much better.

Good Value

Written By RB, Chamopaign, IL on Thursday, September 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had an aftermarket Pioneer Nav unit installed, there was an improvement over stock in sound quality, but nothing spectacular. I ordered Alpine 6x8's for the front and kickers for the rear, the sound quality was bumped up a bit again. I decided to give this amp a shoot as it would be more than double the RMS wattage of the deck, but was small enough to fit behind the dash. I am impressed with the improvement in sound and that it can be cranked up quite a bit and still be clear. I recommend this amp for those limited on space, but need the clarity at a higher volume than the deck amp can provide. Easy install other than the color of the remote trigger wire was different than in the documentation.
Pros:
Great improvement in Sound and good value for the price
Cons:
instructions weren't 100%

Small & Powerful, But.......

Written By Nelson, Kansas on Friday, August 30, 2013
 
The clarion XC1410 amplifier does pack a lot of output power into a small space. That being said, I was disappointed with several aspects of the amplifier once installed. First negative was that the audio input harness is molded into the amplifier and cannot be unplugged. The second negative I had is a bit more subjective. When pushing the amp a little, it quickly developed a "harshness" in the sound quality when reproducing higher frequencies. Third, after having the amp installed for a few days, I began to have start up problems with it. about 1 in 15 times while starting the vehicle, the amplifier would not unmute the speakers, producing no audio output. The only way to restore normal operation was to either shut off the vehicle, or pull the power fuse to the amp.

I cannot recommend the Clarion, especially since the much more capable Alpine KTP-445U is only a few dollars more.
Pros:
Small, powerful, & efficient
Cons:
Intermittent power up problems, no connector for input harness, much less flexible than the Alpine KTP-445U.
Crutchfield response on Thursday, September 26, 2013
Clarion sent us the following response to this review: Thank you for purchasing the XC1410. We are very sorry that the amplifier has not performed as expected. We strive for continued innovation and improvement of our products; to that end, we would really appreciate the opportunity to gather more information about this symptom. Please give us a call at 800-347-8667 and select option #2 and we can discuss some potential remedies and/or determine if the XC1410 needs to be serviced. If so, we can work with Crutchfield to get that set up as well, quickly and painlessly.

Nice and small. Replaced the amp under my seat on my '05 Jeep Wrangler which got ruined when I went wheeling through a real deep mud hole. So I got this and put it in the bottom of my Tuffy center console. Works great, super easy install. Each wire has printed on it what it's for i.e. front right speaker, rear left speaker.
Pros:
Small, powerful for size, simple, easy connections, intuitive

I used this little amp in a cooler radio pushing 2 pairs of Polk MM 691. The amp did get warm but never shut down or missed a lick! It was understandable seeing how there's no ventilation with the lid locked down. Excellent product for the size and price! Easy to install and set up. Circuit board is coated so, its not splash proof, but I would not hesitate to put one on my Mule or four wheeler where weather may play a part in the operation.
Pros:
Size! Small enough to fit anywhere. clean and crisp from the lows to the highs and crystal clear.
Cons:
Can not think of one right now.

Nice little amp, love the size and the power output is surprising. I am using this as a replacement for the 8 channel factory amp in a 2002 Trans Am. Required a little research and some extensive splicing to take out the factory amp, but seems to be worth it so far. It is powering 4 6" dual speakers. It is just a start until I can get a sub amp and get the hatch speakers powered up also.
Pros:

This amp is incredible its extremely small, Powerful & Easy to install. I was debating on what amp to put on my 2003 Honda Odyssey as I am a DJ and I use my Odyssey to transport my DJ equipment., So I did NOT want a BIG Amp.or want to re-wire any speakers. This Amp is small It fit inside the dash under my single din radio on my 2003 Honda Odyssey I im powering 4 Polk audio Component speakers and it sounds GREAT. NOTE: If you want to add 10 speakers to your car and expect it to SCREAM this is not the amp for you this Amp has enough power for 4 speakers remember its 50 watts RMS NOT 200 watts RMS......Over All I will def. Recommend this Amp Great Value for the $$$

I was looking for that little extra boost and had a limited amount of room to work with in my boat. I added this amp to my Clarion head unit and bought some JL speakers to complete the package. It was easy to hook up and adds the clarity to the higher volume levels that I was looking for. Great bargin.
Pros:
easy to install
Cons:
need to make sure you ask about the wiring. This amp has a limited wire harness; meaning you will probably need more power and ground wire.

Maybe good for a subwoofer

Written By DR, Winston-Salem, NC on Sunday, July 21, 2013
 
This amp is a class D amp good for subs only and it has no range. (I learned something new today) It was recommended by Crutchfield because I wanted something small to fit under the dash (not an ideal location for any amp and it ended up under the seat) I was very disappointed in the quality of sound from this unit. It got a few good reviews and I bought it. Bought this as part of my replacement of my factory system including: Kenwood KDC-X997, Polk Audio db5251, component speaker system, Kenwood KAC-8405 amp. Sound Ordnance B-8PTD Subwoofer and the steering wheel control module. Re-wired the entire system (speakers, power, and remote on) The Kenwood amp is what this amp wishes it was.
Pros:
Easy to install, small size
Cons:
Sound quality, lack of adjustments

Clarion XC1410 Great little power amp!

Written By Chris J, Oakdale, California on Saturday, July 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased the Clarion XC 1410 to add extra power to my Clarion CMD8 Marine Receiver with Clarion Speakers. I Used the power amps RCA connectors to hook into the Receivers RCA connectors. Installation was very simple. The Amp works great for what I wanted, as I wasn't expecting a ton of thunder (sound) coming out of my speakers in my 18ft fishing boat, but it really did boost the performance of my receiver and speakers dramatically , giving me great sound. I was very surprised! I added a on/off switch to the units power turn on lead, as I don't need the extra power to listen to the Baseball or Football game on AM radio. With the flip of the switch, I can turn off the amp saving me battery power. I don't get any humming or popping when the amp is on, just clean power.....If I was a wake boarder, water skier, or lake cruiser I would want a higher power amp than the XC 1410, but I'm at the lake to fish, not listen to loud music. Overall, Crutchfield and Clarion offer a great price to power amplifier.
Pros:
small size to power ratio, price.
Cons:
None

Small size large performance

Written By JohnT, Waterrtown NY on Thursday, July 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Big performance in a small package. I am using this amp in combination with a Clarion CMS 1 head unit and 4 Polk 4" 2 way speakers in the fairing... I used the RCA connections to hook the amp to the stereo and couldn't be happier. The amp fit easily inside the fairing of my touring bike, the wiring was simple, and the sound quality is fantastic. The CMS 1 by itself was actually OK, but with the added power and sound quality the amp added, road and wind noise at (even illegal) highway speed is great. And so far power consumption is lower than I had imagined it might be. Once my 26 year old classic is above idle speed my amp gauge runs at 13.6 volts or a bit higher. Power consumption is also stable in as much as I have it wired to just a 15 amp fuse on my accessory panel. I did leave the 20 amp fuse inline as well. Future plans include installation of a total of 8 speakers on the bike, as soon as I come up with locations for the other 4. I can get away with this because the amp is stable to 2 ohms.
Pros:
Great sound , value, and ease of installation
Cons:
None

Excellent tiny amp!

Written By Brian Mc, San Diego on Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The main reason I bought this amp was due to it's small size and the stated amplification level. Also I am placing it in a very small car plus I didn't want to drill any holes in the aluminum frame of my car. I wasn't really expecting much in the amplification of the sound but i was extremely wrong. Just a dramatic increase in sound and clarity from my old stereo without amplification. The ease of installation was also a pleasant surprise and I will definitely buy another one of these tiny Clarion amps for my other project car!
Pros:
Small size that you can place in any open place in your vehicle, even under the dash!
Cons:
None so far.

Great little amp

Written By Mike, West palm beach fl on Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great little amp. Good power and very clear even through the high volumes. Have it paired with 2 sets of srq-1722s 6-3/4" components custom installed in my doors and rear deck. Install was a breeze for me just added some new bullet connectors and a few short RCA cables and done. Tucked it right under my center console. The bass delivered through the pairing is very good too
Pros:
Power size install time price
Cons:
Only thing I can think is not being able to use your own wiring which made no difference to me

Review for the Clarion XC1410

Written By NV JEEPR, Dayton, Nevada on Monday, June 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this Amp due to it size and power for the DBS 21 Polk Audio 5 1/4" speakers I have adapted into the front speakers and Sound bar on my 2004 Jeep Wrangler. I have a Clarion Stereo which I bought from Crutchfeild and the system works excellent! The amp is small, so I could fit it under the dash because there is not a great deal of room in a Jeep. The Quality is excellent! Great Choice.....
Pros:
Excellent sound and volume with no top on the Jeep. Small and fits under the Dash, great Choice for the Jeep owner and not too expensive.
Cons:
Haven't found any yet, love the Amp.

Good little amp

Written By Rick A., New Berlin, NY on Monday, May 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have a Alpine CDE-HD149BT head unit. I am using RCA inputs and running four Infinity Kappa 682.11cf's (2ohms). This unit is absolutely putting out more power than the Alpine KTP-445 amp that I was using! There is no turn on "pop" at all. The music is crystal clear and freaking LOUD in the cab of my Ranger super cab! The unit is small like the other amp I mentioned. It can be used with RCA (which I am, along with my head units remote turn on lead) or speaker level inputs. They recommend at least 10 gauge power and ground wires. The manual says to use low gain for RCA inputs and high gain setting for speaker level inputs. There is a high pass filter on it with Flat (off), 60hz, and 90hz settings. This amp is outperforming my old one by a fair amount and I would recommend. Installation is pretty simple and straight forward. I feel that it is a exceptional value for the low price. I took a chance on this new product and am very glad that I did. I haven't taken my head units power much above half and it is almost crazy inside my truck cab. SWEET
Pros:
Loud, Clear, no "Pop" turning on, an inexpensive way to upgrade your sound system
Cons:
none, I love it
