Default Setting the standard for car amps.

CEA, Consumer Electronics Association, has set a standard for car amps. If the amp sports their logo it will display the TRUE RMS power the amplifier makes driveing a 4 ohm load with 14.4V powersupply.

They also have special test for amps that are designed for low impedances and such. There are a few loop holes some people might could use. But its WAY better than the EIA standard already in use.

I hope manufactures embrace this new standard. I belive it will help out the car audio industry.

Is Boss Audio part of Audiobahn? Most Amplifiers are made in Korea now even some JBL, they used to make them in North Ridge CA, but not anymore, Its a good Thing to have a standard, you can not know what standard manufacturers quote on there boxes, i never believe any of it until i see how many capacitors and transistors are in the amp! but then again, i dont take my screw driver with me ever time i go to buy an amp!

Why aren't Phoenix Gold amps not CEA certified? I thought they made fine amplifiers.

Hello,

I believe that Rockford Fosgate and Alpine are the only big brands that are CEA2006 certified for this model year.

Look for 80 percent of the car audio amps to be CEA2006 certified by next spring.
