About the Memphis Audio VIV1500.1V2

The product of over a half century of technical innovation

The folks at Memphis Audio are so proud of these amplifiers, they named the line after the year their company was born — 1965. Looking fine in its brushed anodized aluminum gunmetal chassis, the SixFive Series VIV1500.1V2 mono subwoofer amp can send 1,500 watts RMS to a 1-ohm sub. In addition, this amplifier features onboard digital signal processing — including subsonic and low-pass filtering along with a parametric-style bass boost — that'll help you tune the sound of your bass to perfection. You can even change the color of the amp's illuminated logo and ground caps — select one of the seven available colors to match your mood, whim, or vehicle's interior.

The folks at Memphis Audio are so proud of these amplifiers, they named the line after the year their company was born — 1965. Looking fine in its brushed anodized aluminum gunmetal chassis, the SixFive Series VIV1500.1V2 mono subwoofer amp can send 1,500 watts RMS to a 1-ohm sub. In addition, this amplifier features onboard digital signal processing — including subsonic and low-pass filtering along with a parametric-style bass boost — that'll help you tune the sound of your bass to perfection. You can even change the color of the amp's illuminated logo and ground caps — select one of the seven available colors to match your mood, whim, or vehicle's interior.

Signal processing for bass

Low-pass and subsonic filters let you tune your sub's sound for supreme clarity and articulation. M-Equalization™ bass enhancement controls (frequency, width, and level) let you add some finely-tuned bass impact to your music. An optional wireless remote lets you control the low-end volume from the driver's seat.

Connectivity and controls

Speaker-level inputs and automatic turn-on circuitry allow you to connect this amp into almost any system, including ones using the factory radio. Preamp outputs can be used to feed another amp its input signal in a multi-amp system. A magnetic cover protects the control panel from dirt and other accidents.

Note: This amplifier's power consumption is beyond the capacity of most automotive electrical systems. To power this amp, your vehicle may require an electrical upgrade that could include a high-output alternator, a second battery, or both.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Memphis Audio VIV1500.1V2 is a SixFive series mono amplifier. This Class D amp features a compact anodized brushed aluminum chassis with all of the connections on one side for a clean installation. Each amplifier includes a Certificate of Performance with a total RMS power measurement.

Output Power: The amp has the following power output:

  • 375 watts RMS x 1 at 4Ω (@ 14.4V, <1% THD)
  • 750 watts RMS x 1 at 2Ω (@ 14.4V)
  • 1,500 watts RMS x 1 at 1Ω (@ 14.4V)

Optional Wireless Remote: With the optional VIVREMV2 wireless remote, you can control the output level of the VIV750.1V2 remotely. The remote will automatically pair with the amplifier, and offers a control range of 0 to -26dB. The remote has a rechargeable battery with an estimated battery life of 1000 hours.

Protection Circuitry: The amplifier features built-in circuitry to protect the amplifier against short circuit, overheating, and over/under battery voltage. A Protect LED on the side of the amplifier will glow red when the amplifier shuts down due to any of the above causes.

Sub-Sonic Filter: The Sub-Sonic Filter provides a cutoff point for lower frequencies that cannot be cleanly reproduced by the subwoofer, and may cause damage to your speakers and waste amplifier power. The Sub-Sonic Filter is variable from 10Hz to 80Hz, with a slope of 24dB per octave.

Bass Boost: Memphis Audio's M-Equalization lets you fine tune the bass output to your subwoofers. (It's a single band parametric equalizer.) You can adjust the center frequency, Q (bandwidth of the boosted signal; higher Q results in a sharper cutoff of the frequencies above and below the selected center frequency), and amount of boost at the center frequency.

Controls: The amplifier features a hinged top plate where the following controls are accessed:

  • Gain: rotary control; continuously variable, labeled 0 to 10
  • Sub-Sonic Filter: rotary control; continuously variable 10-80 Hz; labeled at 10 Hz, 25 Hz, 45 Hz, 70 Hz and 80 Hz; 24 dB/octave slope
  • Low Pass Crossover: rotary control; continuously variable 50-200 Hz; labeled at 50 Hz, 70 Hz, 100 Hz, 160 Hz and 200 Hz; 48 dB/octave slope
  • M-Equalization:
    • Center Frequency: rotary control; continuously variable 20-80 Hz; labeled at 20 Hz, 30 Hz, 45 Hz, 60 Hz and 80 Hz
    • Q: rotary control; continuously variable; labeled 1-5
    • Bass Boost: rotary control; continuously variable 0-18 dB
  • LED Color: rotary control; sets the color of the logos on the top of the amplifier and the light strips along the sides; seven LED colors to choose from
  • Input Level: 2-position switch:
    • Lo: line-level source; 200mV to 5V input range
    • Hi: speaker-level source; 400mV to 10V input range
  • Auto Turn On: 3-position switch:
    • 12V: using a +12 volt remote turn-on wire
    • DC: DC Offset; speaker level input only
    • Audio: Audio Signal Sense; speaker level or line level input

Note: If the Auto Turn On switch is set to DC Offset or Audio, you can use the REM terminal to send a +12 volt turn-on signal to additional amplifiers.

Connections:

  • Power/Ground/Turn-on: set screw terminals; power and ground terminals accept bare wire up to 1/0-gauge (1/0-gauge amplifier wiring kit with an in-line 100-amp fuse on the power wire within 18" of the battery recommended); REM set screw terminal accepts up to 10-gauge wire (18-gauge remote lead is sufficient)
  • Signal Input: stereo RCA jacks; preamp or speaker level input
  • Line Output: stereo RCA jacks for sending the audio signal to a second amplifier
  • Speaker Output: two pair if set screw terminals, internally shorted together, for easily connecting two subwoofers; accept up to 10-gauge wire
