Oxnard, CA (07.05.12) – Boss Audio Systems, one of the top five producers of power amplifiers in the world, is readying retailers, competitors and consumers for a loud summer with two new-for-2012 lines of stylish power amplifiers: Disrupt and Impact. All amplifiers in both lines are currently shipping and are competitively priced from $149 to $349.
“The Boss Audio legacy is built on our ability to deliver the power at the heart of an audio system,” said Doug Kern, executive director of sales and marketing at Boss Audio Systems. “Customers who saw these amplifiers in January were very excited at the power, size and design, and they have been highly requested since we began shipping in March. With the addition of the Impact and Disrupt lines, we supply retailers and distributors with more than 100 amplifier SKUs for automotive and marine applications.”
The Impact series consists of five MOSFET-powered amplifiers designed to fit any system build configuration. The line is anchored by the IMP2000M, a mono-block power plant that delivers 2,000 watts maximum power (800 watts RMS at 4 ohms). Depending on the system design, pair it with the IMP1000.4 to power four additional channels with 250 watts max per channel (100 watts RMS at 4 ohms) or any of three models of bridgeable two-channel amplifiers: IMP2000.2 (2,000 watts max; 400 watts RMSx2 at 4 ohms), IMP1600.2 (1,600 watts max; 350 watts RMSx2 at 4 ohms), or IMP1000.2 (1,000 watts max; 200 watts RMSx2 at 4 ohms).
Featuring an efficient Class D architecture, the Disrupt series consists of three mono-block designs. The small but powerful DST2500D is rated at 2,500 watts max (1,500 watts at 4 ohms). For more demanding but equally size-limited applications, step up to the DST3000D (3,000 watts max; 2,100 watts RMS at 4 ohms) or the flagship DST4000D (4,000 watts max; 2,300 watts RMS at 4 ohms).
Both series of amplifiers employ a new look highlighted with understated black metal housings and a monochromatic logo. Paired with the low-profile design, the amplifiers create the ideal visual impact in a high-profile install, or fit the tightest spots in hideaway applications. Power and speaker connections are made on one side for ease of installation, while high- and/or low-level inputs, crossover selectors and audio level controls adorn the opposite side.
The Impact and Disrupt amplifiers also feature linking capability, LEDs to indicate power and protection circuit activation, and wired dash-mountable subwoofer level controls.
