Overview

The T500-1bd produces the same amount of REAL power than it's predecessor, even though it's nearly 50% smaller in size! In about the same space as a college sized history textbook, you can now use a dedicated subwoofer amplifier to drive two 4-Ohm DVC subwoofers. This amp will provide enough bass to separate you from those envious car audio geeks.

  • 24dB/octave crossover
  • MOSFET power supply
  • MOSFET output stage
  • 4 Gauge power/ground connectors
  • Audiophile grade speaker connections
  • RCA pass-thru outputs
  • Infrasonic filter
  • 2 Year Warranty
