Optimized power blocks

The power supply block is optimally designed for low-noise, highly efficient electric power transmission, where the DC converter with a toroidal core transformer is chosen for less electro-magnetic interference. To reproduce delicate ultra-high-frequency sound, each channel block and the class-D amplification are all isolated with their own ground circuitry, minimizing any signal interference.

Select components for superior sound

The upgraded inductors with OFC wires are selected for lower internal resistance and improved sound character, while the high-capacity electrolytic capacitors contribute to precise and responsive bass.

Sturdily built structures

The bottom plate with 1.2 mm thickness and its updated cross-bracing press design improve chassis rigidity at approximately 50%, reducing the resonance and shifting the resonance peak out of the vehicle’s harsh vibration frequency band while improving damping performance dramatically.

High-quality speaker terminal

The speaker terminal features Hex-key screws, providing a durable method of tightening the wire connections while accepting bare wire or wire ferrules (up to AWG #8) for superior electrical performance, high-quality sound, and safe connection.

Signal summing for seamless connection to factory audio

The new signal summing feature combines filtered audio signals from modern factory car audio systems, such as those for the separate tweeter, woofer and subwoofer, accurately amplifying the full stereo frequency range easily. And you can even send the consolidated line-level signal onto other mono or stereo amps in the chain, allowing for flexible installation in various types of vehicles and audio system setups.
