Features

Channel Configuration: The SoundStream RS5.4500D is a 5-channel amp; essentially two full range 2-channel amps and one mono subwoofer amp built into one chassis. Both full range sections are bridgeable, so it can be configured as a 5-channel, 4-channel, or 3-channel amplifier.

Power Output:

  • Front and Rear Channels:
    • 4Ω: 100 watts RMS x 4-channels
    • 2Ω: 160 watts RMS x 4-channels
    • Bridged: 320 watts RMS x 2-channels into 4Ω
  • Subwoofer Channel:
    • 4Ω: 500 watts RMS x 1-channel
    • 2Ω: 750 watts RMS x 1-channel

Controls

Level Control (Gain): The input levels are independently adjustable for the front, rear, and subwoofer channels. The input range is 0.2 Volts to 6.0 Volts.

Crossover: The amp has independent crossover controls for the front, rear, and subwoofer channels. The crossover slopes are all 12 dB/octave:

  • Front:
    • Mode: two position switch; choose Full Range (crossover is bypassed) or High Pass
    • Frequency: set the crossover point when in high pass mode; rotary dial; 50 Hz-4 kHz
  • Rear:
    • Mode: choose Full Range (crossover is bypassed), High Pass, or Band Pass (both high pass and low pass filters are engaged)
    • Frequency: there are separate dials for the high pass and low pass filters
      • High Pass: rotary dial; 50-150 Hz
      • Low Pass: rotary dial; 250 Hz-4 kHz
  • Subwoofer: the low pass crossover on the subwoofer channel is always engaged
    • Frequency: set the low pass crossover point; rotary dial; 50-150 Hz

Bass Boost: The bass boost on the subwoofer channel, centered at 45 Hz, is continuously variable from 0 dB (flat) to +12 dB.

Q
this amp can take high level inputs in the rca? or just low level rca from the head unit?
[ jose  Apr 20, 2021 ]

A
Just RCA's. But there are plenty of inexpensive adapters out there. Awesome amp for the price. A lot of power for for your dollar.
[ MATTHEW  Apr 26, 2021 ]
A
Low level RCA only. No speaker level inputs.
[ MATTHEW  Apr 20, 2021 ]
Q
Can anyone tell me how this compares with my current amp? Pioneer GM-D9605. Will I notice a difference if I switch to the soundstream or are they about the same as far as quality sound?
[ Dennis  Mar 22, 2021 ]
1 answer
A
Both amps are great in their own ways, however the Soundstream's wattage is different than the Pioneer's wattage. Without knowing what you're powering it's hard to determine which one is best for your application. Give us a call at 1-800-324-9695 and we'll be happy to see which one works best for your set up!

Q
Will this run safely with 4 gauge wire in a 5 channel setup?
[ Dion  Mar 19, 2021 ]
6 answers
A
Yes. I used a KnuKoncepts 4ga package and it works perfectly. I've had no issues so far.
[ NELSON  Mar 20, 2021 ]
A
Yes it will be fine with 4 gauge
[ WALTER  Mar 20, 2021 ]
A
From what I understand yes. Mine is currently getting installed and as far as I know the techs are using 4 gauge.
[ Patrick  Mar 20, 2021 ]
A
Absolutly ! Just hooked it up 3/17/21. It sounds amazing! Buy it and ENJOY IT!!
[ Bill  Mar 19, 2021 ]
A
Yes 4 gage is perfect for this amp and power rating. You could use 6 gage IF your wire length is under 10 feet. Crutchfield has a good article "Amplifier wire gauge chart".
[ MATTHEW  Mar 19, 2021 ]
A
Yes it will.
[ blaine  Mar 19, 2021 ]
Q
Can I run 4 ohm door speakers and a 2 ohm sub with this?
[ Jon  Jan 23, 2021 ]
2 answers
A
Yes you can I helped my son wire his 4 - 4 ohm door speakers and a 2 ohm sub. Sounds great. Just need to tweak the settings in the head unit and amp to create the right balance.
[ Michael  Jan 23, 2021 ]
A
Yes. That is exactly what I'm doing. The impedance of the sub does not have to match the impedance of the door speakers. However, be sure to not go below 2 ohms because that is the rated limit for this amplifier.
[ Jase  Jan 23, 2021 ]
