All you have to do is sit back and enjoy your drive.

Gotta have thump? At 165 watts RMS per channel (or 400 watts in bridged mode), the XM-2165GTX has plenty of power for a subwoofer or two. The variable 10dB boost at 40 Hz kicks up the bass when it's needed, and you can switch on the variable low-pass filter to keep the low frequencies tight and crisp.

Extra-sturdy, gold-plated terminals give you reliable signal and power connections, and the speaker-level inputs allow for easy integration with any system, even a factory radio.

Features

Protection Circuitry: This amplifier has 3-way protection circuitry which protects the amplifier in the following cases:

  • Thermal: shuts off the amp when the operating temperature is too high
  • Short circuit: shuts off the amp when the speaker outputs are short-circuited
  • DC Offset: shuts off the amp when the speaker wires or ground lead is not securely connected, generating direct current

Power/Protector LED: The amplifier has an LED on the top panel which glows green when operating normally, and changes to red when the protection circuit is activated.

Low-pass Crossover: The XM-2165GTX is equipped with a low-pass crossover, continuously variable from 50-300Hz, with a slope of 12dB/octave. You can turn off the filter for full-range operation.

Low Boost: You can add up to 10dB of bass boost centered at 40Hz.

Preamp Output: This amplifier includes a stereo preamp output, which allows you to send a full-range signal to another amplifier.

Speaker-level Input Harness: The amp comes with a speaker-level input harness with a 4-pin Molex plug on one end. This allows you to more easily connect this amplifier to a receiver without preamp outputs.

Protection Cap: The XM-2165GTX comes with a rubber protection cap that fits over the power/ground/remote terminals, helping to prevent accidental short circuiting.

Inputs and Outputs

Front of Amplifier:
