|Compatible Vehicle Fitment|
|Low Noise Preamplifier Circuit|
Low voltage signal from the source unit comes into the amplifier pre-amplifier circuit with minimal distortion.
Tiffany Style RCA Connectors provide audiophile signal quality and maximum signal throughput with minimum distortion and maximum external noise rejection.
|High Level Inputs|
Easily tie into OEM audio systems that do not offer RCA output to maximize after-market amplifier power.
Two-Channel, Full Range, Bridgeable: Flexible installation allows this amplifier to run in two-channel or bridged mono mode.
Variable electronic crossovers allow for complete control of the signal directing to all speakers. See the specifications section for specific frequencies.
Electronic EQ allows you to control the amplifier output with on board electronic crossover to tailor specific frequencies to speakers and subwoofers. Check specifications for specific frequencies for this amplifier.
|Class / Topology|
The proprietary "Super D-Class” design uses high-speed microprocessors with proprietary D/A conversion algorithms to efficiently control the current consumption at very high listening levels. Hifonics Super D-Class results in lower distortion, higher current efficiencies, and less heat than conventional D-Class amplifier designs.
|Output Device Technology|
The Ultra-Fi™ MOSFET is designed for music production vs. just electronics output power. It produces high power with high efficiency for cooling and minimal distortion.
Heavy-duty aluminum alloy heat sink efficiently moves heat from the MOSFET (where it can be cooled).
Pulse Width Modulated power supply keeps voltage constant through the Ultra-Fi MOSFET output devices.
Nickel-plated high-temperature impact resistant with hex screw terminals that allow for secure connections and is erosion resistant.
Molded and angled terminals provided a secure connection for all power, ground, and speaker connections. Angled for ease of access during installation.
|LED System Protection Circuitry Diagnostics|
Backlit Input Level Control Potentiometer provides an illuminated clip indicator for monitoring distortion. Additional illuminated indicators on the amplifier top-mount control panel display power, overload, and short protection.
|Bass Remote Included|
Wired dual concentric bass remote allows adjustments to the bass level and the output level (which can be mounted anywhere in the vehicle). Indicator LED’s display power and level clipping.
The DC SIGNAL SENSE switch will allow the amplifier to turn on when a signal is received on the high level inputs. An amplifier remote turn on wire is not needed to power on the amplifier. This feature can also be turned off.
Built-In Bass Enhancer: Dial in the perfect bass performance by setting bass width and sweep on the amplifier’s top-mounted control panel. This allows you to fine-tune the frequency range and bass level output to your desired listening tastes. The included dual concentric bass knob gives ability to adjust these settings via your driver seat. Full RGB Lighting: RGB color selector on the amplifier's end panel controls the logo, end panels, and side panels LEDs. Select between Blue, White, Red, Yellow, Light Green, Green, Light Blue, Purple, Flashing all colors, Fading all colors, and Off.
