JL Audio RD500/1 500 Watt Monoblock Subwoofer Amplifier
The JL Audio RD500/1 is a perfect amplifier for powering 1 or 2 subwoofers. The RD500/1 puts out 250 watts of RMS power at 4 ohms and 500 watts at 2 ohms making it a perfect match for virtually all JL subwoofers up to the W3 and TW3. This amp uses JL's NexD switching technology to deliver clean power with incredible efficiency and low distortion.
The RD500/1 comes in a stylish, black finish with control on the top of the amplifier underneath the protectie cover. This amp has 12dB/octave crossovers and high, low, and all pas filters. You have the option of running both high or low level inputs, and the amp features automatic turn-on capability. The RD500/1 has a 2-channel pre-amp output that allows you to easily add an additional amplifier if you have a larger system with multiple amps for your subwoofer or if you need an amplifier to power your speakers.
One of the unique features of the JL RD amplifiers is the LED clipping indicator. When you play test tunes, the amplifier will light up to first tell you when you get a clipped signal from your radio or head unit. This tells the volume level which you should never exceed. Once you know where your radio clips, you turn the gain up on the amplifier until you see the LED light up again. You turn the gain back slightly to make the light stop illuminating and you have gains perfectly set. This takes the guesswork out of the equation and ensures maximum power output without disotrtion and clipped signals.
