Blaupunkt GTA 470 SF power amplifier

Enjoy lots of power and superb sound, all wrapped up in a tough-looking case that'll add some style to your car audio system. The Blaupunkt GTA 470 SF 4-channel car amplifier puts out 70 watts RMS per channel, great for driving two pairs of full-range speakers or components. In 2-channel mode, you can run two subwoofers with up to 200 watts RMS of power each. The high- and low-pass filters let you contour the sound to get maximum performance from your speakers or subs.

Product Highlights:

  • 4-channel car amplifier
  • 70 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (100 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms)
  • 200 watts RMS x 2 bridged (4-ohm stable in bridged mode)

  • switchable high-pass filter (80 Hz)

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.
