Yes and No. Amplifiers are all basically the same – they make a signal from an audio source (radio tuner, cd player, mp3 player,…) strong enough to drive speakers. Two channel and multi-channel amplifiers are capable of powering multiple outputs, giving you the opportunity to run your entire upgraded sound system off of just one (and maybe two) Kicker amplifiers. Hence the amplifiers won’t stress the rest of the electrical system, including the headlights. The good news is, wiring up a 12 volt (off grid) system is a lot easier than a house (grid tie-in) system.
A cheap car amp is not going to hurt speakers that can easily handle the power that it is pushing, but an expensive and powerful amplifier is much more likely to cause undue stress on and possibly even blow out lower level speakers and subwoofers. We ended up being pretty ticked off with the shop manager (who we thought from phone calls was on the ball”) and decided to hook up and go back the RV park where at least we had 50 amps for multiple ACs. My advice – go for something that produces good sounding distortion, just like all the recording engineers do. This will give a continuous power of about 450W, and peak power of over 500W is possible with a good transformer. Find a wide range of car amplifiers available across channels like 2-channel, 4-channel, mono channels too. I’m sure there are some decent amps to be found on eBay but the odds are stacked against you.
We helped John Stears on the mouse droids too, we had it running around the workshop, based on a Datsun 280 RC sports car from what I remember. Not only does it look very sleek, it also feed CLEAN and CRISP sound to the subwoofers (most class-d amps are know for their sound, not this one though). This is especially true for portable amps most of which can’t even drive AKG K701’s properly let alone most of the planar cans. Needless to say, I recommend using the PCB, as this has been designed for optimum performance, and the amp gives a very good account of itself. The protection is designed not to operate under normal conditions, but will limit the peak output current to about 8.5 Amps. On a pretabbed cell, you will notice that there are thin wires soldered down the length of these lines with about three inches of wire hanging free off the bottom of the cell. When looking around for a solar controller, keep in mind that solar chargers aren’t usually rated in watts, but in amps.
It acts like a fluctuating voltage wall” that prevents a portion of the alternator’s otherwise available current from ever reaching the amplifiers. Just remember because they can handle 1100 watts rms each doesnt mean you have to reach that rating for it to sound good and all speakers are rating using only 1 watt!! Use our Dealer Locator to find the store location nearest you and get your hands on the latest Orion® Car Audio systems! The voltage on the amplifiers will fluctuate with every discharge and charge of the capacitor. If the system that you want will ideally be 200 watts and puts out 20 volts in direct sunlight, then your system will be producing a maximum of 10 amps. Manufacturers of a specific battery or the device holding it, usually will provide you with a fully compatible charger either a wall socket type, a car socket type or both.
Car audio stuff is dirty noisy has poor sonic accuracy and this is a super inefficient way to makes some noise. REAL ENGINEERING vs INTUITIVE DESIGN: Intuitively an amateur designer could easily be excused for believing ultra-low noise expensive op amps are the best way to design a silent amp. Affordable, stylish, and manufactured using the best quality components in this niche, Power Acoustic MOFO-124X MOFO is a professional grade car sub-woofer with a 12-inch dual 4-ohm design that installs conveniently out of sight. At number nine on our list, the 1,200-Watt Audio Terminator series TNE212D subwoofer by MXT is among the cheapest, high quality subwoofers that you will find in the market. They are great addition to your car audio set-up because they prolong the life of a car’s speakers by providing adequate supply of power at all times. However, there are many different types of power amps, and each amp is designed to power different types of speakers and subwoofers.
