Optimized for excellence
Circuitry and components are carefully laid out for low-noise, highly efficient electric power transmission.
Precision power block placement
Placing the power block close to the input and amp minimizes power loss, while electrolytic capacitors ensure precise, responsive bass.
An oversized heat sink with an optimally designed fin structure ensures efficient ventilation to prevent overheating.
Hear music your way
Various customization options let you adapt the audio experience to your liking. With the Subwoofer Direct and 2-ohm Speaker Load2 option, you can hook up a subwoofer directly to the built-in class-D amplifier together with multiple speakers for deep, car-filling sound.
No need for an external amplifier to drive a subwoofer
