About the Profile AP2000
Give your sound system some West Coast style with a California Series amplifier from Profile. These brushed aluminum and chrome beauties look expensive, so you may not believe your eyes when you check the price! You get high-end features like gold-plated outputs, a brushed aluminum case, variable filters, and a 3-year warranty for less than you might expect.
High-powered bass response doesn't have to cost a lot of money, especially when you fire up your system with the AP2000. It's an affordable solution if you're looking to add a subwoofer (or two) to fill out your existing system. The adjustable bass boost lets you dial in some serious low end punch, and the variable low-pass filter let you contour the sound to match your vehicle. And, thanks to the variable subsonic filter, your sound will never get muddied up trying to reproduce low frequencies that your speakers can't handle.

Power Strip: This Profile California AP2000 amplifier features a bright red power light strip on the top center of the unit to indicate when the amp is turned on. The 6-5/16" power light strip consists of eight LEDs. The green LED on the power/speaker terminal side of the amplifier will also light when power is sent to the amp.
Dual MOSFET Power Supplies: The amplifier features dual MOSFET power supplies for a more stable output.
Bass Level Remote Control: This amp is equipped with a wired remote control which allows you to adjust the level of the amplifier. The remote is designed to be mounted under the dash to allow control from the driver's seat. Dimensions: Width=1.585" (2.566" including mounting tabs), Height=0.75", Depth=1.368" (1.758" including knob), Cable length=16.25'.
High-to-Low Level Converter: The amp is equipped with an external high (speaker) level to low (line) level converter to allow you to connect the amplifier to a receiver or factory radio without RCA preamp outputs. After splicing the receiver's speaker wires to the converter's speaker wires, you can simply plug the converter into the amp's RCA preamp input.
Line Outputs: The AP2000 includes a pair of RCA line outputs for sending an unfiltered signal to another amplifier or component without splitting the signal.
Protection Circuits: This amp has three types of protection circuits: DC offset, short circuit and thermal protection. The red LED on the left side of the amplifier will light to indicate that the amplifier has gone into protection.
Built-In Crossover: This amplifier includes a built-in variable low pass filter with a slope of 12dB/octave. The low pass filter is continuously variable from 50-250Hz. There is a two-way switch which lets you choose between low-pass or full-range operation.
Subsonic Filter: The AP2000 features a built-in variable subsonic filter with a slope of 12dB/octave. The subsonic filter is continuously variable between 20-50Hz. This filter avoids the reproduction of inaudible low frequencies which could damage subwoofers because they can generate over-excursion of the subwoofer cone. Note: The subsonic filter cannot be turned off; it is always active.
Gold-plated Terminals: The AP2000 features gold-plated speaker and power terminals and RCA jacks for maximum signal transfer and corrosion resistance.
Set Screw Terminals: The power and ground connections feature set-screw terminals that can accept up to 4-gauge bare wire. The remote turn-on and speaker output set-screw terminals can accept up to 6-gauge bare wire. Two Allen wrenches (2.5mm and 3mm) are supplied to tighten/loosen the set screws.
Remote Turn-on: In addition to turning on and turning off the amplifier via the head unit's remote output, the remote turn-on also operates the reset circuit for the amplifier's protection system. The remote turn-on lead must be connected to the head unit in order to reset the protection circuits.
Bass Remote: The amp has a female RJ-11 phone jack for plugging in the Bass Level Remote Control cable.
Wiring Recommendations: The AP2000 is equipped with four 25-amp fuses, so its fuse rating (100-amps total) exceeds that of typical 4 gauge wiring kits, which tend to include a 60-amp fuse. For 100-amp fuse protection, an ANL wafer style fuse is required, but none of the 4-gauge wiring kits include a ANL-style fuse holder. Since pre-packaged amplifier wiring kits cannot be used alone, you may purchase all the necessary items separately, or you may use a pre-packaged 4 gauge wiring kit along with a ANL-style fuse holder and a 100-amp ANL wafer fuse. If you do not use a wiring kit with the necessary additional items, the separate parts and wiring needed to install this amplifier are as follows:
- 1 ANL wafer-style fuse holder capable of accepting 4 gauge wire
- One 100-amp ANL wafer fuse
- 2 power rings for 4 gauge cable
- 4 gauge power cable (to connect the battery to a fuse holder and the fuse holder to the amplifier)
- 4 gauge ground cable
- Remote turn-on cable (speaker wire can be used as remote turn-on cable)
- 1 stereo RCA patch cables (if needed)
- Speaker wire
Warranty: The manual indicates a 1-year parts and labor warranty, however Profile has extended the warranty to three years parts and labor for units purchased from Crutchfield.
