View Full Version : Does this amp exist?

Just had a crazy idea for an amplifier...

Anyone know of an amplifier that is capable of 2kw RMS at any impedance (0.5 to 4) and is made with very high quality parts?

If such an amp existed I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Edit: Wrong ****ing section.

what would you be willing to pay for this amp if it existed?

Indeed... why 0.5 ohm ?

Nearly anything you can wire to 1/2 you can wire to 2 ohms.

Probably $8-$900 ... Then again I would have to save quite a while for it.

Just an idea for pure versatility.

nothing that I know of. there are some small power amps that do that but nothing high power. And like Jake said, you wouldn't have a reason to need the amp to go down to .5

doesn't say its 1 ohm stable...plus its one funky *** design

Interesting... That thing is HUGE though :laugh:

To make a amp of that nature wouldn't be that hard to do it.

Just if a somebody is willing to design and sell it is another question.

what about the design? or are you jsut talking about the external looks of it?

I just happen to have such an amp in my install right now.....:D

it's stable down to .5ohm....bridgible in 2 channel mode and in parellel mode
has real active current servo's and puts out 2400w rms on the weekest note

the drawbacks are the power that is needed to properly operate it but with
a juiced up electrical system the performance is nothing short of awsome

im sure an amp like that. to put out that much power at all those loads would be closer to 5K$$

The Phoenix Gold x1200.1 does its power at 1-4ohm and they are usually under rated, most bench in the 1400w range.

isnt the JBL Crown A3000GTI like this?

What amplifier is it?

Was thinking one like 1/3rd the size of a AX000GTI :laugh:

you fell for it. he wanted someone to ask what amp he was talking about...
I'm also pretty sure he's talking about the JBL.

you need to contact Harrison Labs
he can build to any imp you ask for.

some of the smallest amps you can get that do TRUE power

the Drag Queen he had years ago was stable to 1/8th ohm you will never find one though. that and those arent to small

Drag Queen didnt last long. It had an internal battery and was deemed illegal in all competition. And that was at a time when competitions drove the market.

the Crown A3000gti and the Crown BPX-2200.1 are both in that catagory
..the A3000gti is slightly lower in power but it has a higher damping factor

didnt that amp get banned from the lanes because it had so much internal capacitance and a built in tone generator?

yes

his smaller amps are great though. NOTHING like the DQ
just very small power houses

right now I am running the BPX 2200.1...but I'll be swapping it
for an A6000gti in the future..along with 3 alts and a row of
batteries

i can see a need for being able to drop down to .5. Say you have (4) single coil 4 ohm subs.

thats 1 ohm

thats 1 ohm

if they are all wired in parallel, that'd be .5 ohms. right?

the 3000gti less power than the 2200 ?
