CEA-2006 Compliant: CEA-2006 is a system of testing and
measurement methods for mobile audio amplifiers. This voluntary standard
advocates a uniform method for measuring 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 with 1% or less Total
Harmonic Distortion plus noise (THD+N) over a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz
(for full range amplifiers). Signal-to-Noise ratio is measured in weighted
absolute decibels (dBA) at a reference of 1 watt into 4Ω. CEA-2006 allows
consumers to compare car amplifiers and receivers on an equal basis. Using
CEA-2006 criteria, the JVC KS-AX3204 is rated as follows:
- Power Output:
- 4Ω: 60 watts x 4-channels
- 2Ω: 90 watts x 4-channels
- Bridged: 150 watts x 2-channels (into 4Ω)
- Signal to Noise Ratio: 76 dBA
Crossover: The front and rear sections of the amplifier have
independent crossovers. Each has a 12 dB/octave slope and can be set to high-pass
with a crossover point of 150 Hz, off (full range), or low-pass with a crossover
point of 80 Hz.
Power Connections: The power and ground terminals are nickel-plated
screw terminals. They will accept spade connectors or ring terminals up to 0.5"
wide. The remote turn-on terminal will accept a spade connector or ring terminal
up to 0.35" wide.
Speaker Connections: The speaker outputs are also nickel-plated
screw terminals and will accept spade connectors or ring terminals up to 0.35"
Speaker Level Input: Two speaker level input harnesses are
included (front and rear), making it easier to add an amplifier to a factory radio
or to a receiver with no preamp outputs.
Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to
find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research
team. They verify what’s in the box, check the owner's manual, and record
dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies
to help people make informed choices.
