What Car Amplifier Do I Need For My Kicker CVR Subwoofer?

Continuing on our series of What Amplifier Do I Need? this week we will be matching amplifiers to Kicker’s CVR Series Subwoofers. Kicker CVR woofers are one of the most top rated woofers in the car audio industry. They are extremely affordable and more than anything else they are dependable. These woofers can really take a beating making them a value purchase. CVR woofers are available in 8”, 10”, 12” or 15” sizes with either a Dual 4 ohm impedance or Dual 2 ohm impedance.

Kicker 10IX500.1


Kicker’s IX500.1 amplifier is the perfect amplifier for a 10CVR104, 10CVR124, or 10CVR154 subwoofer. The amplifier is rated at 500W RMS @ 2 ohms which is just what any of those subwoofers needs to perform at their peak. The subwoofer you select will have to run at a 2 ohm final impedance while wired in parallel. The amplifier’s extreme efficiency keeps it running cool during all listening sessions. Its compact design allows for easy mounting and convenient installation. The IX series is Kicker’s most efficient and reliable amplifiers and are designed to work perfectly with other Kicker products. The amplifier also features low-pass and subsonic filters for complete control of your sound reproduction.

Cerwin-Vega STEALTH500.1


If you are looking to power up a 10CVR102, 10CVR122, or a 10CVR152 subwoofer to a final impedance of 1 ohm, then look no further than Cerwin-Vega’s STEALTh500.1 monoblock amplifier. This amplifier offers a power rating of 500W RMS @ 1 ohm giving you all the power you will need. The use of a Thermal Management System, monitors internal thermal output by reducing power output when the amplifier begins to overheat. This allows the amplifier to have a continuous performance giving you uninterrupted bass reproduction. Apart from being very small Stealth amplifiers feature a full range Class D chip set that improves efficient and performance and increases reliability. It also reduces noise and filters out other sonic disturbances.

Earthquake Sound PH2000W/D1


The Earthquake Sound PH2000W/D1 amplifier is able to output 500W RMs @ 4 ohms. With this amp you can properly power up a 10CVR102, 10CVR122, or a 10CVR152 subwoofer to a final impedance of 4 ohms. At 4 ohms the amplifier and subwoofer will run to the best of their abilities and will have lower heat outputs. The Power House series amplifier features high and low-level inputs giving it the versatility to work in any car with any car system. The amplifier also offers a 5 year warranty making it almost impossible to pass up. If efficiency and high performance is important to your audio system, then this is the way to go.


Cerwin-Vega Stealth and HED Series Monoblock Car Amplifiers

Cerwin-Vega is a well known audio company that has been on top for over 50 years in pro, home, and mobile audio. However in the car audio industry even the best subwoofer in the world is rendered useless without a proper car amplifier to provide the necessary power to get the best performance out of any subwoofer. Cerwin-Vega is known for setting industry standards and they were not going to let some other car audio company provide the proper power and signal to their amazing line of subwoofers. So they took it upon themselves to manufacture Cerwin-Vega car amplifiers that meet their high-standards but that are also easy to use and most important, in today’s economy, affordable.

Cerwin-Vega HED500.1


The Cerwin-Vega HED500.1 is one of four new HED series amplifiers from Cerwin-Vega. The amplifier as an RMS power rating of 150 watts @ 4 ohms and 250 watts @ 2 ohms, making this monoblock class AB car amplifier the perfect solution when looking to power up a single “entry” level subwoofer, like the Cerwin-Vega HED124 or any other “entry” level suboowfer within the allotted power ratings. Usually “affordable” amplifiers lack in features and sometimes quality but this is not the case with the HED500.1. The amplifier features LED power and protect indicators that allow the user to easily and visually see if the amplifier is working properly. High-level speaker inputs and low-level RCA inputs allow the amplifier to be installed in any vehicle, even as an OEM integration amplifier. This is perfect for those who have a vehicle dash that they don’t want to mess with. For a more defined and tailored sound reproduction the amplifier features a low-pass filter and sub-sonic filter that will allow for finer tuning of the car audio system. The Vega Bass Boost will allow a 0-12+dB bass boost giving you more control of bass output, while the included remote bass level control allows for bass control from the convenience of the front seat eliminating the need to constantly adjust the amplifier directly. High-density alloy heatsink will increase heat dissipation while the System Protection circuitry will protect the amplifier from shorts and clipping. This will increase performance and more importantly longevity. Cerwin-Vega’s HED500.1 is the perfect amplifier to get your car audio system started at a price that is affordable with features that are not always found in entry-level car amplifiers.

Cerwin-Vega STEALTH500.1


Cerwin-Vega’s STEALTH500.1 is one of three new Stealth series amplifiers from Cerwin-Vega. Cerwin-Vega is aware that not all cars have ample space when upgrading the audio system and thus created an amplifier with a small chassis that would take up minimal space. The STEALTH500.1 is rated at 200 watts @ 4 ohms, 325 watts @ 2 ohms, and 500 watts @ 1 ohm. These power handling ratings give the amplifier versatility and make it perfect to power up an HED, VEGA, SMAX, or VMAX Cerwin-Vega car subwoofer. The amplifier features a Recovering Thermal Management System that monitors internal thermal temperature by reducing power output when overheating occurs. This allows the amplifier to play for long periods of time without the worry of overheating or causing damage to the amplifier. Low-pass and subsonic filters allow the amplifier to be fined tuned to specific frequencies to better suit the personal needs of the buyer. The Vega Bass Boost will give 0-12+dB of bass boost that can be easily adjusted from the front seat with the included remote bass level control. The amplifier features panel mount RCA inputs for quick and secure installation and a heavy duty alloy aluminum heatsink that decreases heat output and increase performance and quality. The small chassis will allow the amplifier to fit under the passenger or driver seat giving you a shorter run of wiring and thus decreases the opportunity for interference or bad signal. Cerwin-Vega’s STEALTH500.1 is the perfect size with the perfect amount of power.
