Overview

Our take on the Clarion XC2410

Clarion's XC2410 4-channel amplifier delivers 50 watts RMS per channel from a chassis that's about the size of your hand. This micro-sized amp can fit almost anywhere, even behind many dashboards. And Clarion managed to pack more watts per square inch inside this little powerhouse than almost any other 4-channel amp made.

Compact powerhouse

Clarion logo

Clarion's XC2410 4-channel amplifier delivers 50 watts RMS per channel from a chassis that's about the size of your hand. This micro-sized amp can fit almost anywhere, even behind many dashboards. And Clarion managed to pack more watts per square inch inside this little powerhouse than almost any other 4-channel amp made.

Ready for outdoor work

The XC2410's circuits are coated on both sides for protection, so this amp is a great candidate for powering speakers in ATVs, boats, and other challenging applications. Clarion nickel-plated all the connectors to resist corrosion and ensure electrical flow, even during harsh conditions.

Super-clean signal

The XC2410's input circuitry resists the electronic noise common in cars, so you will enjoy clean, distortion-free music. Soft turn-on and turn-off circuitry prevents potentially damaging thumps to your system as it powers on or off. Variable high-pass filters help you clarify the sound by eliminating the extremely low bass that your speakers can't reproduce. You'll also appreciate the high-level inputs, so you can hook this amp up to almost any system, even to factory radios without RCA  connections.

Works great for my boat

John from St Louis, MO on 7/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off, this amp can be either 2, 3 or 4 channels. I found this very difficult to ascertain from the Crutchfield website. I am using it to power the cockpit speakers in my boat off channels one and two and a subwoofer off of a bridged channel 3 and 4. It is a very basic amp as far as features available, just gain and the high pass frequency dials. It is quite compact, a bit bigger profile than a dollar bill, and projects out 1.5 inches or so. You do have to splice all the wires into a wiring harness. I might have preferred the screw terminals for ease but that said, working with the harness actually allowed me to do the splicing with a little more space as my amp is in a recessed sort of cubby hole. Sound is great and plenty of power for me for the four 6.5" JL marine speakers and 1 10" JL sub that I put in my boat.

Pros: compact size great sound Didn't require me to run a larger battery cable than my old amp had

Cons: Low on adjustable features.

Great range in a small package

Love the size the output of power is great for what I was hooking it to 6 1/2 fronts and 5 1/4 rears and plenty of adjustments to make it sound exactly how u want

Pros: Small easy to install and sounds great

Powerful compact amp

Eddie from Bentonville, AR on 4/24/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This little amp is really powerful - I have it setup to run on my 4 door speakers and it has just the right amount of gain/power to make them sound really good. Installation was easy too, although the directions included with the amp were for more than one model, and were a little confusing at times.

Pros: Small size, lightweight, ample gain/power

Cons: None so far

Its a BEAST!!!!!!

Installed today in my 2012 Ram 1500 to run my Kicker CSC speakers, dash and all 4 doors. Bought this one to replace an Alpine mini amp that had a noise problem I just couldn't live with. This amplifier is a MONSTER. Its quiet, strong, and clean. Install was a little trickier than I wanted but well worth every min....Very satisfied.....If your looking for super clean power from an amp that wont take up much space, or break the bank, buy this amp and don't look back. It will be the best car audio purchase you've made in a long time.....

Pros: Price, size, power, no amp hiss {noise}

Cons: if there is a con, I cant find it.

Chad from Franklin, TN on 8/23/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great compact amplifier. The only issue I had was the input harness wasn't as long as I was anticipating and I had to make my own and change my mounting location. Other wise great product for the price, and it pushes the Rockford Fosgate door speakers I installed very well. Easy to adjust and tune. Would had been 5 stars had the harness been a little longer. Would definitely recommend.

Pros: Small and compact. Straight forward installation.

Cons: Input harness is kind of short.

I wanted a amp to power my Polk speaker that I installed in my jeep. The Polks sounded good with my Clarion radio but with the top and doors off it needed a little more power. I added this little amp and it fit the bill small size with great power and easy to install. It was also small enough to hide under my glove box to keep a factory look.

Pros: Size and price

Cons: None yet

Nice compact amp

TC from Kalamazoo, MI on 2/5/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a nice little amp. It installed easily and sounds good. I actually didn't realize that it's a "marine" amp, which although I didn't install it in a boat, it should make it durable since I do live in a humid climate with large temperature swings.

Pros: Price, compact, marine grade, nice looks.

Cons:

Nice compact amp

CraigM from Hartford, MI on 2/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Lots of sound in a small package. I installed this in a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Fit under the glove box very nice. Installation was very straight forward, but the instructions were lacking A LOT. I guess these manufactures have to dumb them down so much that anyone with even a little intelligence has trouble. I had to use the website to get the correct wiring as the included manual was not detailed enough. Overall I'm pretty happy. The Rockford Fosgate component speakers I purchased do OK with this much power, but I'll probably be upgrading them in the future. This little amp has a lot to offer.

Pros: compact size, power, installation

Cons: included manual is terrible, use the website!

Features

RCA Inputs: Two pair of female RCA line level inputs (front and rear) are attached to the left end of the amp with 7" wires.

Speaker Level Inputs: The 8" speaker level input wires are also attached to the left end of the amp.

Crossovers: The front and rear channels have built-in independent high pass crossovers. The crossover points are continuously variable from 15 Hz to 250 Hz and the slopes are 12 dB/octave.

Gain: The front and rear rotary gain controls are continuously variable; the range depends on which input you're using:

  • RCA: 200mV to 8V
  • Speaker Level: 600mV to 20V

Power Harness: The included power harness plugs into a pigtail harness attached to the amp, for a total of 18" power and ground wires. The power wire should be connected directly to the battery, so it will likely need to be extended using a 10-gauge or larger wire (the attached power and ground wires are both 12-gauge). An in-line fuse holder on the power wire holds the included 40-amp ATO style fuse and another in-line fuse should be added close to the battery.

Speaker Output Harness: The included speaker output harness plugs into a pigtail harness attached to the amp, for a total of 18" speaker wires. The remote turn-on wire is also in the speaker output harness.

9 questions already asked

If I remember correctly you will need 2 sets of RCA cables for the input. You'll be bridging the output side. Basically crossing up the speaker wires. [ Michael  Sep 21, 2017 ]
It has I high pass filter built in. The best way to use headunit crossover is to set hpf dials to the most full range and then utilize head unit filter [ Paul Thompson  Aug 18, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Kenny  Aug 07, 2017 ]  Staff
They could, but don't do it. I would be concerned over the power draw from an "accessory" point. Pick up power for both units directly from a battery connection and use a switched power source to turn the units on when it gets power. I ran a 10 gauge wire (overkill) from my battery to the installation area of the amp and head unit. [ John  Aug 06, 2017 ]
I wouldn't. The amp is pulling a lot more power than the head unit. It should have it's its own power lead. [ Michael  Aug 06, 2017 ]
I am sorry but I have not yet installed it on the motorcycle I cannot answer your question [ WILLIAM  Aug 06, 2017 ]
It would likely draw way too much amperage. Your head unit wires are too light a gauge and fused to lightly unless you have some unusual custom installation. At best it will blow a fuse somewhere. At worst ??? I ran mine directly to the battery using a fairly stout gauge of wire. PIA but I dont think there is a good alternative. [ Robert  Aug 06, 2017 ]
You should have zero concerns with your intended use. Mine is mounted in he upper half of the tour pack of my motorcycle. (Trunk lid) It is a small space in direct sun and I have no heat related problems. I am driving 2 speakers per channel resulting in 2 ohm loads to the amp. For its small size, it rocks. It has been dependable for over a year now. [ John  Jun 29, 2017 ]
I have mine under the glovebox of my jeep and haven't had any problems. [ Brian  Jun 28, 2017 ]
I have this amp bridged driving 2 speakers at 4ohms and it is inside a Harley Davidson Road Glide fairing. Minimal airflow and have not had any issues. [ Michael  Jun 28, 2017 ]
Yes it will work fine. Use RCA jacks if your system has them. If not then use the speaker wires from your stereo and wire to the input wires of amp. That's what's great about this amp. If you get speakers don't get any rated for over 50 watts RMS. [ Gary  Oct 28, 2016 ]
I would think they have a adapter. The amp works great in my jeep. It has high input and low inputs. [ Brian  Oct 28, 2016 ]
That's correct. The included power harness plugs into a pigtail harness attached to the amp, for a total of 18" power and ground wires; so it will likely need to be extended using a 10-gauge wire in order to reach your battery. This EFX 10-gauge amp kit (25% off with the purchase of the amplifier) would do the trick for you: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_142PA10BX/EFX-PA10BX-Wiring-Kit.html I hope that helps! [ Larry  Aug 07, 2016 ]  Staff
the blue wire, this wire is with the speaker output wires, and gets connected to the stereo remote output wire and should also be a blue wire.( at least on my Sony head unit it is) [ LARRY  Apr 09, 2016 ]
There's a blue wire coming out of the amp that you wire to any accessory power wire on your motorcycle (orange and white for HD) which will make the amp shut off when the ignition switch is in the off position. [ David  Apr 03, 2016 ]
Yes, it will. You need you put a switch on the remote wire so the amp turns off when the bike is not running or it will slowly drain your battery. [ Joel  Apr 01, 2016 ]
The remote wire from radio to amp is what turns the amp on and off as long as your radio is wired correctly the amp will not drain your battery when off. [ John  Apr 01, 2016 ]
It has an internal relay that will only power on when the input wire is receiving a signal. This "power on" wire would either come from your radio, or could come from your ignition wire if your radio doesn't have a subwoofer signal wire. [ Trever  Apr 01, 2016 ]
With an aux to rca cable. [ David  Feb 24, 2016 ]
There is no "AUX" input on this amp. However, there are speaker level inputs so I suppose if you wired up your own audio input jack: it could be done. [ Trever  Feb 22, 2016 ]
