Hey Kevin,

I can dig your frusteration man, but Yes, you can get a 1Kw car amp. I have one, an old one from Lanzar. The power supply caps are rated at 63 volts. I assume at least 55V PS. The HS is 18 in long and 10 in. wide and 3 in. tall. Of course it is hollow for the electronics. It has 12 outputs per channel and 6 IRFZ44 fets per leg. According to Lanzar, it puts out 506WRMS per channel into 4 ohms. Model number is 600-S. No bridge mode....... It weighs about 9 pounds and is a beast. You would need a 100A battery charger that is well regulated and filtered, to use it for home use though. Also, people who put such amps in their trucks use many 1 farad booster caps plus a very high output alternator and the serious ones put an additional battery or even two, to give the proper power they need. Not worth it, to me, for 120db of power that I can't use while in my car!

DJ,

Damn it man!
I told you in past posts to ignore any other power spec than true RMS power. R M S power..... Understand? Anything else is junk. Also, a big powered amp will always be large in size and weight but most of all, you will need a large wallet too! You aren't going to buy a 1000W amp for $200.00 unless it is either blown or stolen, or someone needs drug money. A new amp will be at least $800.00, and that's a cheap one.

I really don't know what you are trying to do but good luck, whatever it is..............

Chris

Default A certain mad scientist

of a speaker manufacture which bore his name, who long long ago traded its soul for money, he was known to plug his drivers into the wall. Perhaps just urban legend, he supposidly plugged one into the wall... in a hotel room next to an elevator shaft in a hotel at CES. Pocketed the key and walked away.

Ran for hours until found, or at least goes the legend. Having played with the driver in question (a pro pa driver) I have no doubt that it would have not noticed. It had no difficulty running in the Florida sun being driven to clipping by the big Crowns so a mains connection in a chilled hotel room would be play time.

<sub> documented proof of the legend would be wonderful if anyone has any.. </sub>
