Inputs and Outputs
V-Power: Alpine's V-Power series amplifiers offer clean power output,
clarity and detail at any volume level, and exceptional reliability. V-Power
amplifiers feature rugged heat sinks that ensure optimum temperature and
performance for non-stop output. The V-Power amplifiers are ideal for upgrading
aftermarket or factory equipment and can be connected to just about any system.
RCA and High-level inputs ensure easy installation, while flush mount controls
make for an easy set-up. The V-Power amplifier also come with end caps that
cover the inputs and connectors to create a clean, finished installation. In
addition, variable crossover and Bass EQ functions provide flexible tuning
possibilities for your car audio system.
Thermal Management: The amplifier utilizes rugged heat sinks and an
extremely sophisticated thermal management processor to continuously monitor the
amplifier's temperature, ensure nonstop output and stable, reliable performance.
Gain Controls: This amp has
independent front and rear channel gain controls.
Crossovers: Both front and rear
channels have independently selectable high-pass and low-pass variable 50-400 Hz
crossovers with a slope of 12dB/octave. The crossovers can also be independently
turned off for full-range operation.
Subsonic Filter: This amp utilizes a fixed-automatic 15Hz, 18 dB/oct
subsonic filter to eliminate super low frequencies that can rob power from your
amplifier and damage your speakers.
Bass EQ: The Bass EQ circuit
provides a fixed boost of 12dB at 50 Hz for the rear channels only. The Bass EQ does not function when the amp's rear-channel crossover is set to "high-pass" operation.
Inputs: The amplifier offers
both line-level and speaker-level inputs for 4 channels. The supplied speaker-level
input harness allows you to connect this amplifier to a receiver without preamp
outputs; aftermarket or factory.
Line Outputs: This amplifier
has a pair of non-fading stereo RCA line outputs. You can use these outputs to
daisy-chain another amplifier without having to run additional signal cables
from the receiver.
Terminal Cover: The amp comes with
plastic covers that protect and insulates the RCA, power, and speaker connections.
machine screws attach the cover to the amplifier.
