    Amp class question

    I've been into car audio for a while now, but i've never gotten indepth on amps. What do the different class ratings mean? (ex. Class D) What are the different classes too. Do amps in different classes draw electricity from my car differently? As u can tell, i haven't looked into amps a lot, but i really need to, and i wanna learn. So, help please.

    Basicly the difference is their efficency versus their sound quality.
    Class A/B is more for sound quality, usualy in the 400-500 watt area for multiple channels. Usualy used for speakers(midrange and tweeters).
    Class D or now a days it's labled like class X or T, but anyway they are more efficent, putting out great gobs of power over like one or two channels.

    im not sure about class X but class T is a different from class D. first off, class d obviously can get pretty hot. class T on the other hand stays extremely cool, and it about half the size as class d amps. this is because inside the class t amps is a tripath chip ( not sure the name tho ) they are different because they have been known to distort radio and interfere with antenas more than class d. thats really the only difference.

    anytime
