That's a power amplifier?
You won't believe how much sound comes out of this tiny amp. JBL's Apex PA1254 puts out four channels of 75 watts RMS from a chassis that's smaller than a shoe. It'll fit in almost any little nook or cranny on your UTV, motorcycle, or boat, bringing the joy of music to your outdoor fun.
Versatility and control
You can also use this amp in 3-channel mode to power a couple of speakers with 75 watts each plus a subwoofer with 250 watts RMS. Selectable high- and low-pass filters let you tune the signals to match your speakers and subs. The tough aluminum chassis and conformal-coated circuit boards protect the amp against the weather. The controls are protected behind an aluminum panel.

More details on the JBL Apex PA1254
Overview: The Apex PA1254 4-channel amplifier is effectively two full range 2-channel amps built into one chassis. The front and rear channels are independently bridgeable, so the amp can be wired as 4-channel, 3-channel, or 2-channel.
Auto Turn-on: When using speaker level inputs, the DC offset circuit in the amp senses when a signal is present and turns the amp on automatically.
Control Panel: The control panel is protected by a cover to help keep the controls dry, and to prevent unwanted adjustments. The front and rear sections of the amplifier have independent gain and crossover controls.
- Input Level: 2-position switch; select High (speaker level) or Low (preamp level)
