MOSFET Amplifier: The Axxera AV604Bi is equipped
with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the
MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it
delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off
switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher
volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification
circuit. The power output specs for the AVH614BH are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 16 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4
ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels
(240 watts total)
Note: The power specifications for the AV604Bi are
compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and
Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association
(CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare
power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.
