About the Eclipse ZA1200
Eclipse's digital amplifiers make a strikingly attractive addition to your sound system, with gently curved, polished black aluminum heatsinks, subtly illuminated LEDs, and silver chrome sides. But it's their compact size and exceptional performance that'll really win you over.
ZA Series amplifiers use ICEpower technology that allows them to stay cool and deliver high-fidelity sound, even under heavy stress. Digital processors monitor operation constantly to keep heat to a minimum, so these amplifiers can produce high power from a small chassis. You can install these low-profile amplifiers in tight spots like under a seat or behind a truck bench. You can even remove the chrome side plates to save a little space.
The Eclipse ZA1200 subwoofer amplifier delivers up to 1,200 watts RMS to your subwoofer system. Adjust the variable low-pass filter to get the best performance from your subwoofer/box combo, or use the variable bass boost for music that requires a little more bottom. The subsonic filter screens out frequencies below the range of human hearing, so your amplifier works more efficiently.

Class D Design: The Eclipse ZA1200 mono subwoofer amplifier features ICEpower Class D design. Class D amplifiers provide a very high efficiency rate with low current draw. The high efficiency rate also results in a lower operating temperature for more reliability.
Power Supply: All Eclipse amplifiers incorporate powerful MOSFET Switching Power Supplies for added reliability and powerful music reproduction.
CEA 2006: The specifications given by Eclipse for the ZA1200 amplifier comply with the CEA-2006 Amplifier Power Standard from the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association). All manufacturers who comply with the standard can display the CEA-2006 logo on their product.
Power Indicator: The strip of blue LEDs on the top panel of the amplifier glows to indicate when the amplifier's power is on.
Low-Pass Filter: The ZA1200 features a continuously-variable, 45-200 Hz, Linkwitz Riley 18dB/octave low pass filter.
Subsonic Filter: The ZA1200 incorporates a subsonic filter, set at 22Hz, with a slope of 18dB per octave. The subsonic filter eliminates power-robbing, super-low frequencies that can't be reproduced by most subwoofers, and can even damage subwoofers. Note: The subsonic filter cannot be turned off.
Remote Level Control: Included with the amplifier is a remote level control that allows you to raise and lower the level of the amplifier from the driver's seat. The module can be attached to the dash or console with the supplied screws. A 16' cable is included. Dimensions: Width=1.582" (2.617" including mounting tabs), Height=0.732", Depth=1.536" (1.907" including knob)
Bass Boost: The amp has a variable 0-8dB bass boost with a selectable center frequency between 32 and 64 Hz.
Protection Circuits: The ZA1200 will go into protection mode when the amplifier's heat sinks reach 90°C, when the speaker output shorts to the chassis or body of the vehicle, or the impedance load becomes too low.
Power Wiring Recommendation: The ZA1200 amplifier has four 40-amp fuses, for a total fuse rating of 160 amps. The power and ground terminals accept up to 4-gauge wire, and typical 4-gauge wiring kits include 100-amp fuses. In order to match (or exceed) the fuse rating of the amplifier, it is recommended that you substitute a 160-amp or higher fuse for the 100-amp fuse supplied with the amp wiring kit. An ANL fuse holder and ANL fuse may be required to meet or exceed the 160 amp fuse rating.
- Right Side of Amp:
- Power + Ground: Set screw terminals, accepts up to 4-gauge wire
- Remote: Set screw terminal, accepts up to 10-gauge wire
- Speaker: Set screw terminals, accepts up to 8-gauge wire
- Left Side of Amp:
- Line Input: Stereo RCA jacks
- Level Control: RJ14 input (for use with supplied remote level control module)
Controls: The following rotary controls are located on the left side of the amplifier:
- Input Level: This control allows you to match the output of the source (head) unit with the amplifier. The input sensitivity can be set between 1.2 Volts and 8.0 Volts.
- Low-pass Filter: The amplifier's low-pass filter is continuously variable between 45 Hz and 200 Hz. It has a slope of 18dB per octave.
- Bass Boost: The bass boost control will raise the output level between 0dB and 8dB at a selectable center frequency between 32 Hz and 64 Hz. Both controls are continuously variable.
