JL Audio XD200/2v2

Durability: 4.9 | Value: 5 | Features: 4.8 | Design: 5 | Usability: 5

Harnessing an unbelievable amount of power in its compact size, the JL Audio XD200/2v2 packs a serious full-range punch, delivering a staggering 100 watts per channel into 2 ohms (14.4V, 1% THD). The NexDTM ultra-high-speed switching architecture, which enables full bandwidth Class D operation with incredibly low distortion and great efficiency, is the innovation that enables this much power in such a small chassis. The XD200/2v2 has a 12 dB/octave filter with continuously changing cutoff frequency selection from 50-500 Hz and may be set up as a low-pass or high-pass filter.

The XD200/2v2 also has the v2 Spec feature set, which includes a dual-range differential-balanced input section capable of handling a broad variety of input voltage levels and automated turn-on functionality (through signal sensing or DC-offset sensing).

Durability: 5 | Value: 4.9 | Features: 4.9 | Design: 5 | Usability: 4.9

Known to be an efficient and versatile amplifier, the NVX NBA201 is a Class A/B 2 ohms stable 2-channel amplifier. Categorized as a Class A/B amplifier, This class of amplifiers combines the high efficiency of a class A amplifier with the lower distortion found in class B amplifiers. By biasing both transistors to become active when the signal is near to zero, the class AB amplifier behaves more like a class A amplifier. A key feature of class B amplifiers is that only one transistor is acting as the signal excursion expands into a broader waveform. The NBA201 is one of the most effective amplifiers available because of these qualities and the MOSFET transistor.

The NBA201 additionally has three-way protection circuitry that guards against heat, overload, and speaker shortages that will surely protect and preserve the lifetime of your amplifier and the rest of your sound system.

Item highlights

• 200 watts x 2 channel @ 4 ohms
• 350 watts x 2 channel @ 2 ohms
• Bridged: 1400 watts x 1 channel @ 4 ohms

Good amp, love the clipping feature – ★★★★★

It gets the job done and I really like the input/output clipping lights. They really helped with finding the maximum volume my head unit could produce without clipping and I knew when the output of the amp was clipping so I wouldn’t burn my speakers. Can’t think of any cons, it’s been in my car for about 2 months and has no problems. Another feature I like is the wire connections. You don’t need any adapter clips and you can just stick the straight wire in and screw it down.

“High-quality amplifier” – ★★★★★

This little amp is very powerful and the perfect size to fit under a seat or out of the way. I used this because I purchased new speakers and a new $500 pioneer head unit and it sounded like my vehicle had very very little bass. I ran new door speaker wire hooked this amp up and wow. I cannot turn the gain up over like ten percent because this beast will blow 6×8 speakers. It sounds awesome my mirrors vibrate like crazy. Awesome little amp. Perfect size
