Versatile features

MB Quart RA1-300.1 remote

The amplifier's features include speaker-level inputs with signal-sensing amp turn-on, so it's ready to work in almost any system. High-pass filters shape the signal to fit your full-range speakers for their best-sounding output. A low-pass filter, subsonic filter, and a bass boost EQ on the subwoofer channel 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.

Control Panel: The control panel is protected by a cover to prevent unwanted adjustments. The cover screws are removed with the included 2mm Allen wrench. The rotary controls and recessed slide switches require the use of a narrow flat blade screwdriver (not included) to make adjustments. Each section of the amplifier has independent gain and crossover controls.

  • Input Mode: 3-position switch; 2-channel (all five output channels fed using just the channel 1/2 inputs), 4-channel (discrete inputs for channels 1/2 and 3/4, subwoofer channel fed by the sum of those four), 5-channel (discrete inputs used for all five output channels)
  • Turn-on Mode: 2-position switch; Remote (turns on when triggered by +12 volts DC on remote terminal), DC Sense (turns on/off with the presence of a speaker level input)
  • Gain: three rotary controls; variable from 200mV to 9V
  • Crossover:
    • Full Range Channels:
      • X-Over: 2-position switches; high-pass or full-range

      • Frequency: rotary control; variable 50-250 Hz
