About the Memphis Audio VIV2200.1

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 anodized brushed aluminum chassis, the SixFive Series VIV2200.1 mono subwoofer amp can send 2,200 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 — 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 bass 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.

Installation 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 Big 3 wiring upgrade, and a second battery.

Ok. I felt I needed to write this review because I couldn't find a single review on any website or audio forum on this amp or any of the Memphis six five series. I had installed 2 sundown amps. The 200 x 4 channel amp and the SCV-1500 which I just replaced with this new Memphis 2200.1 amp. I have it pushing 2 alpine type r in a ported box in the rear of my 2016 Honda civic. I am also using the JL audio fix 86 and tweak 88 digital processors. All I can say is this amp pounds those alpine so hard I think the trunk is going to explode. I'm still waiting for the bass knob I ordered because it is way to much bass at times. It sounds really good and in my opinion a huge step up from the sundown amp. I also had a Rockford 1000bd amp previously but this Memphis is far superior.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Memphis Car Audio VIV2200.1 is a Six Five series mono block 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 individual amplifier includes a Certified Output Power certificate with a Total RMS Power specification and Pass/Fail results of the Total Harmonic Distortion, Signal-to-Noise, and Protection Circuit tests.

Output Power: The VIV2200.1 has the following power output:

  • 550 watts RMS x 1 at 4Ω (@ 14.4V, <1% THD)
  • 1100 watts RMS x 1 at 2Ω (@ 14.4V)
  • 2200 watts RMS x 1 at 1Ω (@ 14.4V)

Controls: The amplifier features a hinged top plate where the following controls can be easily accessed:

  • Gain: The rotary Gain control helps you match the amplifier to the output of the source unit. This adjusts the amount of signal required to drive the amplifier to full output. The  Gain control is variable from 0 to 10.
  • Sub-Sonic Filter: The Sub-Sonic Filter provides a cutoff point for lower frequencies that cannot be cleanly reproduced, 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.
  • Low Pass Filter: The Low Pass Filter cuts off higher frequencies from reaching your subwoofers, causing distortion. The cutoff frequency is variable between 50Hz and 200 Hz. The Low Pass filter has a 48dB per octave slope.
  • M-Equalization: Memphis Audio's M-Equalization lets you add just the right amount of bass to your subwoofers. You can adjust the following parameters:
    • Center Frequency: The Center Frequency can be tailored to the subwoofers you are driving. Larger subwoofers are capable of reproducing lower frequencies, while smaller subwoofers cannot. The Center Frequency is variable between 20Hz and 80 Hz.
    • Q: The Q setting adjusts the bandwidth of the boosted signal. A higher Q setting results in a sharper cutoff at the frequencies below and above the selected center frequency. You can adjust the Q setting between 1 and 5.
    • Bass Boost: The Bass Boost control lets you select how much additional bass, at the selected frequency, you send to your subs. The control is variable from 0 to 18 dB.
  • LED Color: This rotary control lets you select the color of the Memphis logos on the top of the amplifier. The logos are illuminated when the amplifier is powered on. There are seven LED colors to choose from.

Optional Wireless Remote: With the optional VIVREM Wireless Bass Knob, you can control the output of the VIV2200.1 remotely. The VIVREM 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.

Connections: The VIV2200.1 has the following connections:

  • Power/Ground/Turn-on: The amplifier features set screw terminals for connecting the power and ground wires. The power and ground terminals will accept bare wire up to 1/0 AWG. The manufacturer recommends a 1/0 AWG amplifier wiring kit with an in-line 200A fuse placed on the power wire within 18" of the battery. The REM or "Turn-on" set screw connection will accept up to 12 AWG wire, however, an 18 AWG remote lead should be sufficient.
    • Auto Turn On: The Six Five series offers three different automatic turn on modes that can be selected via the 3-way switch. If using an 18 AWG remote turn-on lead, you should set the switch to "+12V". If a remote turn-on lead is not available, you can set the Auto Turn On to DC Offset or Audio Signal Sense.
  • Input: The amp features a pair of RCA jacks for connecting the amp to the source unit's preamp outputs via an RCA patch cable. The amp accepts low level signals between 200mV and 5.0V, and high level signals from 400mV to 10.0V. If using a high-level input, you should set the Input Level button to Hi.
  • Output: A second pair of RCA jacks is provided for sending the audio signal to another amplifier. If the Auto Turn On switch is set to DC Offset or Audio, you can use the REM terminal to send a +12V turn-on signal to additional amplifiers.
  • Speaker Output: Set screw terminals are also provided for connecting the speaker output wires to the amp. The terminals will accept up to 12 AWG wire.
