    Anyone used a Sony XM-1S?

    Does it put out rated power? I need a small amp that puts out the 500 @ 2 ohms that this amp says it does.

    No, I have not. I have heard a couple people use the equivalent 4 channel with nice results.

    I wouldn't think for a second of doing over rated power, but I would think it would do rated power. The 4 channel is on sale for ~ $200.

    Re: Anyone used a Sony XM-1S?

    Thanks for your help. Are the 4 channels also small?

    Yes, the 4 channel is ~8x8x1 or so.

    MB Quart also makes a super-small amp as well, but they are bit more pricy.

    Is size or cost your greater constraint?

    A little of both. More so size, but it's going in a secondary vehicle. What's the model of the MB Quart?

    Re: Anyone used a Sony XM-1S?

    Here's the sony info for both mono/4 channel

    http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Produ...2D4s&i=158XM4S
    http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Produ...158XM1S&tp=115

    and the MbQuart

    http://www.mbquart.com/en/produkte/c...hp?nr=rab_1450
    http://www.mbquart.com/en/produkte/c...php?nr=rab_450

    The MbQuart is a bit taller, but doesn't do your desired power at 2 ohms.

    The pdx's would be a better bet perhaps...but the cost is about double...but so is power. From what I understand Arc Audio is supposed to be coming out with something in the 75x4 range that is super small. They have a 2 channel out now that may work...because of the images the site uses, I cannot find a link...but I am thinking you will run into an insufficient amount of power issue.

    No problem...I sorta have a dog in this fight...I am hoping if I start the discussion another user may offer some suggestions I have yet to contemplate. I am debating between the mbquart and the sony for my truck...

    The Sony trumps in size, where I think the mbquart has the edge in reliability. I am in the good position that cost isn't as much as an issue as space. The pdx's are too big...

    Re: Anyone used a Sony XM-1S?

    Well I'd like a MMATS 500.2 it's the right size, but they are hard to come by and are pretty expensive. I know Massive Audio makes a small amp as well.

    Re: Anyone used a Sony XM-1S?

    Nah I ordered one of these already. I just wanted some input on this amp. I liked the size of it, and was hoping it put out the rated power.

    Icon12 Re: Anyone used a Sony XM-1S?

    Hi! This thing does it rated power definitely! I can say more - it does it at 12.5V! I saw a review of mono blocks in Caraudio magazine, unfortunately not in english. So, the rated power of Sony XM-1S:

    Continuos power
    Power supply voltage 12.5 V at THD = 1%

    4 Ohm load 276 Wt

    2 Ohm load 455 Wt

    THD at 63 Hz; 4 Ohm/2 Ohm 0.130/0.162 %

    Input sensitivity 0.39 — 8.3 V
    Signal to noise ratio 95 db
    Frequency range (+0/-1db) 4.0 — 225 Hz
    Maximum power draw at idle 0.5 A

    It does more power than Phoenix Gold RSd 600.1 with 256 at 2 Ohm & 399 at 4 Ohm Wt true RMS at 1 % thd at 12.5V
