Special Features

Power Supply and Output Devices: High current MOSFET devices are used in the power supply and output stages of this amplifier.

Anti-thump Circuitry: There is a time delay turn-on with opto-coupled muting circuits for quiet, thump-free operation.

High Speed, Audio-grade Components: High speed, audio-grade components are used in all low level stages to help ensure signal integrity.

Protection Circuitry: Reverse polarity, thermal and short circuit protection circuits are used to help protect the amplifier from damage and ensure reliable operation.

LED Condition Indicators: A green power LED and a red protection LED are use to report the amp's operating status.

Blue Light Strip: There is a blue light strip on the top of the amplifier. The light strip illuminates when the unit is on.

Controls

Crossover Selector: The crossover selector switch can select flat (off) or lowpass (on) operation.

Level Control: The level control is a variable gain control with a range of 110mV to 8.8V.

Lowpass Frequency Control: This control is used to set the lowpass frequency for the built-in crossover; the control is variable from 40-460Hz (24 dB/octave slope).

Variable Bass Boost Control: The bass boost control allows you to dial-in a 0 to +18dB gain in bass output, centered at 40Hz.

Warranty Note

Warranty: Amplifiers made before January 2001 carry a 1 year warranty. Units made during, and after, January 2001 carry a 3 year parts and labor warranty. All the units currently being sold by Crutchfield were manufactured after January 2001, so they are covered by the 3 year parts and labor warranty. The production date of each amplifier can be determined using the serial number; the first digit in the serial number indicates the year in which the amplifier was made. If the first digit in the serial number is "1", or higher, the amplifier carries a 3 year warranty; if the first digit in the serial number is a "0", the amplifier carries a 1 year warranty.
