Massive Audio’s New Small Chassis Digital Block Series Amplifiers

Massive Audio D 2400

Small chassis amplifiers are the way of the future in the Car Audio industry. More and more companies are re-designing and re-structuring the way consumers look at amplifiers. By now it is not only important to have a powerful car amplifier, but also one that doesn’t require a lot of space. Massive Audio’s Digital Block Series amplifiers are able to provide just that. It seems that most people today, especially the younger generation, are more concerned with hiding their amplifiers rather than showing them off. Also advances in technology have allowed for smaller vehicles throughout the years and thus less space for a car audio system. With this new 2011 line, Massive Audio is looking not only jump into the competitive world of small chassis amplifiers, but to make themselves out to be one of the top leading manufactures in car amplifiers.

The D 2400 is one of Massive Audio’s new Digital Block Series Monoblock Car Amplifiers. This amplifier is rated at 350 watts RMS @ 4 Ohms, 650 watts RMS @ 2 Ohms, and an impressive 1200 watts RMS @ 1 Ohm. Being that the amplifier is CEA-2006 compliant; the power ratings provided are tested and accurate. With these ratings, this amplifier is equipped to work with just about any combination of subwoofers, anything from entry-level to high-end sound systems. N-Channel Circuitry and Class D technology make this amplifier highly efficient and reliable by reducing distortion and providing a cleaner continuous power output. Unique to the amplifier is the FreQ feature that controls the boosted center frequency from 30Hz to 80Hz. Combined with an adjustable bass boost level from 0 to + 12dB, the amplifier will allow for complete control of the boosted frequencies. The D 2400 uses a 6-way protection circuitry and Limit Indicator, which lights up when the amplifier clips or overheats and then reduces or holds the power output to protect the subwoofer and amplifier. With these protection parameters this amplifier will not only protect your car audio system but also your car from any shorting or unforeseeable events. This amplifier also features an adjustable low-pass filter and adjustable sub harmonic filter, allowing you to fine tune just about every aspect of your subwoofer. The D 2400 has a brushed aluminum finish that gives it a nice clean look that will compliment any car interior. The D 2400 along with 8 other models with different power ratings, make Massive Audio Car Amplifiers the right choice when looking for power, efficiency, and space.

Things to Look For When Buying a New Subwoofer

Kicker Comp Enclosure

Anyone is familiar with how music sounds in their own cars.  We’re used to it, and quite frankly it’s usually not good enough to meet any of our standards.  We want volume; we want to feel our music.  Luckily, we’re not alone in this feeling.  After hearing a fully tuned audio system, hearing your factory speakers just may not be strong enough to satisfy a craving that we’re all too familiar with.  That craving in question, is the yearning for bass.

So you’ve taken a spot in your vehicle and reserved it for your future subwoofer box and amplifier.  Now it’s time for you to decide on which specific products are going to go into your car.  This can be a mind-boggling decision, as there are so many options for awesome bass solutions in any car!

The first decision to make is how much bass are you looking for?  Are you the type who wants to compliment their audio system with a punchy style bass, or a booming bass that can shake the walls of your entire block?  Audio systems that can provide a punchy style bass are usually more affordable and require a smaller amplifier, which is why these are considered more of an “entry-level” system.  A great way to pursue this style of bass is with a loaded subwoofer enclosure like the Kicker DC122.

Let’s say you were more interested in the block shaking bass that can rattle picture frames off of the wall.  These types of systems can usually require larger amounts of amplification, which can draw a lot of energy from your car audio systems, so be prepared to equip your vehicle with an extra Power Cell or two, and maybe even a beefed up alternator.  High-powered subwoofer systems are loud, and can have you truly feeling your bass and music the way you may be looking for.  Subwoofers that can handle 1000 watts of continuous power are usually considered to be manufactured with Sound Pressure Level (SPL) in mind.  Take your time choosing the subwoofer that will be outputting bass in your vehicle, as each woofer is geared towards its own audience.
