Car amplifiers - what to look out for when buying.
Before you buy car amplifiers you need to be well informed.
Don't just buy according to wattage. Amplifier manufacturers measure power in different ways, so a 400 watt amp by one manufacturer may be less powerful than a 200 watt amp by another manufacturer. Manufacturers like to make you think that their amplifier has more power than others.
You must always ask for the maximum power RMS (the maximum power the amp can produce continuously). It is the most accurate way to measure power and is used by most reputable amplifier manufacturers. It gives you the average power of your signal.
There are many methods used by manufacturers to overrate the power of their car amps. For example, some manufacturers measure maximum peaking power. This is misleading. In addition, some manufacturers calculate power at the point of tremendous distortion. Be very careful.
Does all of this get you confused? Don't worry. If you do not know much about identifying the true power of car amplifiers, all you have to do is buy from reputable brands.
You will find a wide range of 2-channel amps, multi-channel amps, subwoofer mono amps, or whatever you're looking for, easily. You will find several brands to choose from such as Sony, Kenwood, Power Acoustik, Pyle, Boss Audio, Pyramid, JBL, Rockford Fosgate, Phoenix Gold, Alpine, and more.
