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 open the box,
verify contents, 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.
Marine Amplifier: The Wet Sounds Hydro-Tech series amplifiers,
with conformal coated PCBs, are specifically designed for marine applications.
However, the amps are not waterproof, and should not be mounted where they are
likely to get wet.
Mounting Feet: Using the included mounting feet adds
approximately 1/2" to the height of the amp, but allows you to hide
the wiring under the chassis.
Logo: The Wet Sounds logo mounts over the status LED, on the
top of the amp. It can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
End Covers: There are removable covers on both ends of the
amp to help protect the controls and connections. The covers can be painted.
Note: A 3mm Allen wrench (not included)
is needed to remove the covers. They must be removed during
Control Panel Cover: All the controls are protected by a rubber
cover to help keep them dry.
Gain: The input gain is a continuously variable rotary control;
200 mV to 5 V.
Crossover: The 12 dB/octave crossover can be set to low pass,
high pass, or full (crossover is bypassed and the amp output is full range). The
crossover point is adjustable from 50 Hz to 250 Hz.
Bass Boost: The bass boost, centered at 45 Hz, is continuously
variable from 0 dB (flat) to +12 dB.
Power Terminal Block: The amplifier has a power/ground terminal
block that detaches from the amplifier, making it easier to connect the power and
ground wires. Once the connections are made, the terminal block plugs into the
amplifier. The power/ground block has set screw terminals and will accept 4 gauge
Speaker Terminal Block: The speaker terminal block is also
detachable from the amplifier. The speaker block has set screw terminals for two
speakers and the remote turn-on lead; each will
accept 12-16 gauge wire.
Preamp Inputs: The amplifier has one pair of RCA jack inputs.
Preamp Outputs: There is also one pair of pass-through preamp
outputs, making it easy to connect another amplifier without running an extra set
of RCA cables.
Note: The preamp inputs and preamp outputs
are extended 5" from the amp on pigtail wires.
Fuses: The amplifier is protected by two 25-amp ATO blade-type
