The ARC Series Amplifier Family includes three primary 1000 watt foundation models sharing a common high-pressure die-cast aluminum heat sink with a rough-grain black anodized finish and CNC-machined accents. The amplifiers feature integrated mounting feet in the corners of the heat sink and include plastic hex-head trim caps for a finished look once installed.
Known for their computer-controlled forced induction cooling solutions, the new ARC amps draw cool air in through vents at the ends of the heat sink. That cool air passes over the power supply switching and output devices and is exhausted through an opening on the front edge of the amp. The onboard micro-controller controls the cooling fan speed to keep the amp quiet.
All three Arc Series amps produce roughly 1000 watts of power. The four-channel ARC 1000.4 produces 250 watts per channel into 2 or 4 Ohms and is bridgeable to a two-channel configuration, each of which can produce 500 watts into a 4-Ohm load. All amplifiers feature fully balanced differential inputs to reject common electrical noise and allow for connectivity to OEM amplifiers. Speaker level input adapter plugs attenuate the signal from a factory amp by to simplify OEM integration. Each pair of channels has an adjustable sensitivity control. Multi-channel amps include a source selection switch to negate the need for Y-Cables. All three amplifiers include dual DC offset and signal detection remote turn-on detection circuits.
The ARC Series amplifiers produce massive amounts of power from a compact 15-3/8 by 6-3/8 by 2-1/4-inch footprints. Their simple and elegant cosmetic design, amazing sonic transparency and efficient performance make them perfect for integration into almost any audio system. One their own, or when combined with the IPS 8.8, the new ARC Series amplifiers will redefine how consumers enjoy music in their vehicles.
