That's a power amplifier?
You won't believe how much sound comes out of this tiny amp. JBL's Apex PA1502 puts out two channels of 100 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 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.
