Power your bass
MB Quart's Reference Series RA1-300.1 mono subwoofer amplifier can send up to 325 watts RMS to your sub, so you can hear and feel the beat clearly. MB Quart designed this amp to power high-quality aftermarket subs, like their Reference Series subwoofers. The Class D amplifier utilizes MB Quart's unique Q-Stasis (Class SQ) circuitry to improve the accuracy and clarity of your music while still providing the oomph it needs.
Remote bass knob included
The amplifier's features include speaker-level inputs with signal-sensing amp turn-on, so it will work in almost any system. A low-pass filter, subsonic filter, and a bass boost EQ help dial in just the right amount of bass bump. A remote bass knob is included so you can control your subwoofer's level from the front seat.

Overview: The MB Quart RA1-300.1 monoblock amplifier can provide up to 325W x 1 @2Ω, with a frequency response of 25Hz to 250Hz for deep solid bass. The mono amplifier features MB Quart's Q-Stasis pre-amplifier stage that reduces incoming noise for improved sound quality. Class-D topology combined with aluminum heat sinks allows the amp to produce the maximum amount of power while keeping cool.
- 325W x 1 @ 2Ω
- 175W x 1 @ 4Ω
- Audio Inputs: A single pair of RCA jacks provides the audio input for the amp, accepting either pre-amp level or speaker-level input signals.
Note: If connecting the amp with speaker-level input signals, speaker wire-to-RCA adapters will be required (sold separately).
- Speaker Outputs: Two pairs of speaker outputs on set-screw terminals provide a mono output signal for connecting up to two subwoofers. The speaker outputs can accept up to 12 AWG speaker wire.
- Power/Ground/Remote: Three set-screw terminals are provided, with power and ground terminals accepting up to 4 AWG wire and the remote turn-on accepting up to 12 AWG wire. 4 AWG wire is recommended for both the power and ground with an 80A fuse (sold separately) installed on the power wire.
- Remote Level Control: An RJ-45 socket lets you connect the included Remote Level Control, for adjusting the bass level from the front of the vehicle. The Remote Level Control is designed to mount underneath a dash panel, within easy reach of the driver, and includes a 16' RJ-45 cable. Remote Level Control dimensions: Width = 2.44", Height = 0.97", Depth = 2.95" (including cable).
Controls: A removable translucent cover-plate protects the top-panel audio controls and can be accessed using the provided 2mm Allen key.
- Level: A rotary dial lets you adjust the incoming signal level, with an adjustment from Min to Max.
- Bass EQ: An adjustment dial lets you boost the signal at 45Hz with a 0-12dB range.
- LPF: A rotary low-pass filter can remove frequencies below the setting amount, with a range of 50Hz-250Hz.
- Sub Sonic: A 2-way switch lets you turn the 25Hz subsonic filter On or Off.
- Activation Type: A 2-way switch lets you select the turn-on
method for the amp. Selections include:
- REM Turn-On: Used when running a wired turn-on signal from the headunit.
- DC Sense: Used when running speaker-level signals into the amp without a turn-on wire.
