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.
Inputs and Outputs
CEA 2006 Compliant: The
ZX400.1's power ratings are measured according to the strict standards dictated
by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards allow you to
accurately compare the rated power output of all CEA 2006-compliant amplifiers,
even if they come from different brands. Manufacturers who adhere to the
standards can display the CEA 2006 logo on their products and packaging.
Kicker "Living Loud" Certified
Power Certificate: The amplifier comes with a certificate that indicates the
total maximum wattage of the particular amplifier, along with the model number,
serial number, tested date, and whether the amplifier passed the total harmonic
distortion, signal-to-noise ratio, and protection circuit tests.
Speaker-level Input: The
high-level input connection is included to allow use with sources that do not
have RCA preamp level outputs. Only one type of input signal (speaker-level or
line-level) should be used with this amplifier.
Filter: The internal low-pass filter can be adjusted from 50 to 200 Hz, and
has a slope of 24 dB per octave.
Filter: The subsonic filter allows the amplifier to block ultra-low
frequencies that your subs can't reproduce, improving the efficiency of your
speaker system. The filter is fixed at 25 Hz, and has a slope of 12 dB per
KickEQ Bass Boost: The KickEQ bass boost circuit provides up to 18 dB signal boost at 40Hz.
Bass Level Control: The Remote Bass Level Control lets you adjust the output
level of the amplifier from anywhere in the vehicle. When attached to the
mounting bracket, the Remote Bass Level Control has the following dimensions:
W=2.204", H=1.171", D=2.253" (including the knob).
SORT (Short circuit, Over-voltage,
Reverse polarity, Thermal)
Protection Circuitry: The SORT protection circuitry guards against accidents
and undesired operation. The Power LED on the left side of the amp glows green
and the power indicator on top of the amp glows red when the amplifier is
connected correctly and SORT has not been engaged. If the red Protection LED
illuminates, SORT has been engaged and the amplifier is in protect mode until
the problem is resolved.
