A sound investment: the Jensen XA4150 amp has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a top-flight amp at a very affordable price.

Top-mounted controls give you quick and easy access to the high- and low-pass variable crossovers. Gold-plated screw terminals and RCA inputs and outputs ensure optimum signal integrity and corrosion resistance. Preamp outputs make it easy to install multiple amplifiers. Adding the XA4150 to a factory system? Speaker-level inputs make it easy to hook up to any radio

  • 2-, 3-, or 4-channel output
  • Tri-way capable (Tri-Way crossover required)
  • 200 watts RMS x 2 bridged output
  • 100 watts x 4 at 2 ohms
  • requires 4-gauge power and ground leads — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
  • speaker-level inputs
  • high- and low-pass crossovers, variable from 40-240 Hz, 12 dB/octave
  • 6 dB bass boost at 45 Hz
  • preamp outputs
  • MOSFET power supplies
  • speaker short, thermal overload protection
  • 14"W x 2-5/8"H x 11-1/8"D
  • 1-year warranty

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.
