Versatility and control

You can also use this amp in bridged 1-channel mode to power a sub with 300 watts RMS. Selectable high- and low-pass filters let you tune the signals to match your speakers and subs, while a bass boost adds punch to the low end. The tough aluminum chassis and conformal-coated circuit boards protect the amp against the weather. The controls are protected behind an aluminum panel.

Features

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.

  • Input Level: 2-position switch; select High (speaker level) or Low (preamp level)
  • Gain: rotary control; variable from 200mV to 6V with the input level switch in the low position and 500mV to 15V with the input level switch in the high position
  • Crossover:
    • X-Over: 3-position switch; select High Pass, Off (full-range), or Low Pass
    • Frequency: 3-position switch; select 60 Hz, 80 Hz, or 120 Hz
  • Bass Boost: 3-position switch; select 0 dB, +6 dB, or +12 dB; centered at 45 Hz; bass boost is only active when the X-Over switch is in the low pass position

Customer Q&A

4 questions already asked

Q
Can this be installed in a jeep wrangler to improve sound quality?
[ Randy  Aug 09, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
If you replace the speakers with some that can handle around 100 watts RMS, then it can work. If you want to keep the factory speakers installed, this is too powerful for them. We have other options to improve sound with stock speakers in some of the Wranglers. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to check for possible upgrades for your specific Wrangler

Q
Could this be used for marine application?
[ Bornie  Aug 08, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, this amplifier has a weather and moisture resistant aluminum chassis. It is designed for marine, power sports, UTVs, or motorcycles.
[ Calvin  Aug 16, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
In electronics, power equals current multiplied by voltage. Therefore 300 Watts is equal to 14 Volts times 25 Amps, the rating of the included fuse. Amplifiers can be highly efficient however the math here represents an amplifier that is perfect 100%, how can this be?
[ Thomas  Aug 08, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
14 x 25 = 350. This amplifier is a compact class D amplifier. When you are running it 2-ohm in 2 channel mode or bridged to a single channel at 4-ohms. it is rated for 100 watts RMS. That is 85% efficient, as 350 x 0.85 = 300, which is about par for a class D amplifier.
[ Calvin  Aug 16, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
How resistant to heat is this amplifier?
[ Thomas  Aug 08, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
It is a class D amplifier, and is designed to not get as hot. It should however still be given airspace to breathe.
