High Power High Value
The THUNDER500.1 is a high powered subwoofer amplifier capable of delivering up to 500 watts RMS power at 2 Ohms. Additionally, the unit is designed to be installed in almost any vehicle due to its small chassis size.
The THUNDER500.1 features surface mount technology. This design uses smaller more efficient parts that adhere to the circuit board much better than traditional through hole designs making it extremely vibration resistant.
The control panel on the THUNDER500.1 is easy to access and make adjustments. The unit includes a variable low pass filter and a selectable bass boost, 0, +6, or +12dB. The unit also features a subsonic filter that can be used in conjunction with a vented enclosure for optimal sound quality.
The THUNDER500.1 uses set screw type connections for both its power and speaker terminals. The power and ground inputs will support up to a 4 AWG wire and the speaker inputs can support up to a 12 AWG wire. Set screw type connectors provide the most secure connection minimizing power loss and delivering all the power to the amplifier and to the speakers.
