The American Bass VFL Hybrid 4480.1D Mini Mono amp that I got From Mr.Mylows10, is Very Impressive.I havent been impressed with a mono /bridged amp for quite some time, and I can say this one did.I ran it @2ohms for approx 45min to an hour on a pair of old school AudioBahn USA Made Aw1008t DVC2ohm subs 1k rms 10s,in 2.06 cuft@32 htz per chamber, at approx 1oclock position, and they hit very hard and clean/smooth.I then ran it to one sub @1ohm load, @approx 12 oclock position, and she was quite impressive,and ran for approx another 30 min pretty hard and heavy,and the amp stayed quite cool to the touch,.Ive bought several amps over the last 5yrs, and havent found anything that really out performs my Cheater old school Zed Autoteks(BTS 7150s) on the lower end running @2ohms mono,and have always been disappointed, until now.I am very pleased with the performance this amplifier delivers,its small foot print,as well as its craftsmanship.Very nice amp.I recommend this amplifier to anyone needing real power for your subwoofers,and it is a real space saver as well that performs outstanding! I have another on the way,thanks to Mr.Mylows10,and the 4ch in a day or two.cant wait to get all three going,and soon to replace all four subs,as 2 are blown from a bunk buy(2 ive had for over 10 yrs still going strong).I thank You Mr Mylows for recommending this amplifier,and delivering a smile on my face and a quality made piece of Car Audio equipment.I thank you sir.looks like I will finally put my 15+yr old cheaters at rest for another system for the time being.Great amp people,worth the money spent for a change:santa:

I believe that the RMS specs @1ohm load was 2250 watts,and 4500watts max.the Size is 13.5 clearance of the terminals x 6.50 x 2.25.Small and compacted little Beast
1ohm stable
input sensitivity=6v-0.02v
low pass filter=50htz-220htz
subsonic filter=off-50htz
bass boost=6db/12db
freq.response=20-250htz
signal to noise ratio=85<
efficiency@4ohms=over 90%
tdh@4ohms=<0.01%
damping factor=150<
fuse rating=120a
This is the only specs I have on this amp,N/A @4/2ohms

I just picked up a brand new american deluxe jazz bass and I want to take off the knobs in order to remove the plastic name plate that is below it. What size of allen key do I need to remove the lower knobs? The bass came with an allen key for most of the knobs but not the lower ones. thanks.

That's some sick power for the size of the footprint! :awesome: What do these do @4 or 2 ohms? can't find specs on these other than @ 1 ohm rating...

Jim, How does this amp compare to the saz1500v3? And how does it produce 2k+ on 120a fusing when so many would say that is not enough, or should be atleast 200+a to make that kind of powah? Just curious. And yes, i know it says don't ask questions.

I've got one of these guys headed my way monday! Its smaller than my RF Punch 1000bd and looks to put it to shame! Can't wait!!

So I figure I would just add to this. I got my DSO Nano today. I was skeptical at the RMS rating on the 4480 since it is so small. For anyone wondering without a load and a 50 hertz tone I get 50volts clean power. I then hooked my XFL up and repeated setting the gains until it clipped and turned it down till I saw a clean signal. I then got 46.5 volts. At 1ohm that is roughly 2162 watts of clean power. I have a stock alt and stock batt in my car. Although I do have a 175 amp alt. My DC XL 12 will be here this coming week. I should be able to use the 4480 to its full potential.

what's size power and ground is everyone using? Or which should I use?

0 gauge, nothing less.

i was using 0 gauge to a distro block and a very short run of 4 gauge to the amp ground and power

been using my vfl 4480.1 for a couple of weeks now, it puts out great power, blows my hifonics bxi 1610D out of the water and it never gets warm running full blast during a 2 hour drive at .5 ohms. One thing to note, my friend tried it on his car, and it didnt perform very well because his electricals were **** at 12.5-12.8 volts basically he had to bass boost +12db and gains to 70% to get any real volume off his 500 rms sub. With this amp you gotta maintain at the very minimum of 13 volts and up or else output drops a lot, i only needed gains at 50% and all bass boost off to get full output from my FIQ15 with my electricals at a steady 13.9-14.2 volts.

only frustrating thing its 4 gauge inputs so you either have to use a reducer or a short distro block run. Also it only has rca inputs but no outputs so its harder to run multiple of these if you normally daisy chain stuff.

my buddy was using 4 gauge only and that also limited the power it puts out.

All in all, its a very efficient amp but you gotta treat it right, like taking it out to dates, buying it chocolates, cooking it dinner etc..

What does this amp do at 2 ohms? I maybe thinking about running it at 2 ohms with the Obsidian 12v2-D2 if the new Obsidian 12v3-D4 don't start pre-ordering soon lol.

mylows10; what would it take to run two of these amps to a single DVC sub? Y adapter RCAs and gain match each amp? thats the only route?

They are rated at 2200 rms at 1 ohm. I've seen them clamped at .5 rising to 1 ohm and getting 2500+ rms
