Our take on the Focal FPP 1000

by Buck Pomerantz
Focal

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.

Focal Power Performance (FPP) amplifiers give your music the clean and powerful boost it needs to sound its best. The FPP 1000 mono subwoofer amp can drive a sub or two with up to 500 watts RMS, adding the excitement and impact of great bass in your vehicle.

Extra control over your bass
It's frustrating when you can't get your bass exactly the way you want it — this amp features a low-pass filter, a subsonic filter, variable bass boost, and a phase switch, so you can make those little adjustments that'll give you perfect bass tones. And you can control the level from the front seat, with the included wired remote.

Solid, smart construction
The FPP 1000 sports a heavy aluminum chassis that disperses heat efficiently, so it runs cool even when you're pushing your system hard. This FPP amp also includes high-level inputs with signal-sensing, so you can hook one up to any receiver — even a factory stereo — without needing a separate turn-on lead.

Features

Overview: The Focal Power Performance series amplifiers feature a class-AB design for excellent sound quality. The aluminum chassis efficiently dissipates heat to protect the amp from thermal overload. The front-mounted connections and top-mounted controls are easily accessible for a clean installation.

CEA-2006 Compliant: CEA-2006 is a new system of testing and measurement methods for mobile audio amplifiers. This voluntary standard advocates a uniform method for determining an amplifier's RMS power output and signal-to-noise ratio. The criteria for measuring power uses a DC input voltage of 14.4 volts and the RMS power output is measured into a 4-ohm load with 1% or less Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) plus noise. Signal-to-Noise ratio is measured in weighted absolute decibels (dBA) at a reference of 1 watt into 4 ohms. CEA-2006 allows consumers to compare car amplifiers and receivers on an equal basis. Following the CEA-2006 criteria, the FPP 1000 is rated at 300 Watts RMS x 1 channel with an 85dBA signal to noise ratio.

2-Ohm Stable: The FPP 1000 is stable down to 2-ohms. The amplifier is rated at 500 Watts RMS x 1 channel in 2 ohms.

Top-mounted Controls: The amplifier has controls conveniently mounted on the top panel under a removable cover. The controls include:

  • Gain Control: rotary control; continuously variable from 0.2 volts to 5.0 volts for the line level inputs and 0.4 volts to 9.0 volts for the speaker level inputs
  • Subsonic: 2-position switch the turn the subsonic filter on/off; the subsonic filter crossover point is 35 Hz and the slope is 24 dB/octave
  • Frequency: rotary control to adjust the low pass crossover point; continuously variable from 50 Hz to 150 Hz; the slope is 12 dB/octave
  • Bass Boost: rotary control to adjust the bass boost; 0-9 dB, centered at 50 Hz
  • Phase: 2-position switch to easily reverse the subwoofer's polarity; 0°/180°

Front-mounted Terminals: The FPP 1000 has all of its connections on the front of the amplifier for a clean installation. The terminals include:

  • Speaker Output: one pair of set-screw terminals for connecting a subwoofer; accepts up to 7-gauge wire; tightened/loosened with the supplied 2.5mm Allen wrench
  • External Remote: RJ-14 jack for use with the included external remote control; the external remote controls the output level of the subwoofer
  • Line Input: Left and right channel RCA jacks for the input signal from the head unit
  • Line Output: Left and right channel RCA output jacks to daisy-chain another amplifier without having to run an additional set of cables
  • Hi Level Inputs: 4-pin Molex jack for use with the supplied speaker level input harness
  • Fuses: the amp is protected by two 25-amp ATO-type fuses; spare fuses are included with the amplifier
  • Power: two set-screw terminals for connecting the power and ground cables; they can accept up to 3-gauge wire; a 4-gauge wiring kit is recommended for this amp; tightened/loosened with the supplied 3mm Allen wrench
  • Remote: set screw terminal for the remote turn-on lead; will accept up to 7-gauge wire; tightened/loosened with the supplied 3mm Allen wrench

External Remote Control: The amp has an RJ-14 jack for use with the included external wired remote control. The amplifier also includes a 15' cable to connect the remote to the amplifier. This remote allows you to adjust the output level of the subwoofer from your listening position. The remote features a rotary knob and a power LED that illuminates when the amplifier is powered on. The remote has two screw holes and can be mounted under the dash (mounting screws not included). The wired remote dimensions are:

  • Width: 1-5/8"
  • Height: 1"
  • Depth: 1-3/4" (2-3/8" including knob and wiring)

Auto Power On: When using the speaker level input, the Auto Power On circuit senses an input signal and turns the amp on automatically. This feature makes it easier to add an amplifier to a factory radio or to a receiver with no preamp outputs.

Protection Circuitry: The FPP amplifiers employ four protection circuits: short circuit, thermal overload, over voltage, and polarity reversal.
