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 ARC 1000.6 is a six-channel amplifier rated to produce 175 watts per channel into 4- or 2-Ohm loads. Each pair of channels is bridgeable to produce 350 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.
Robert Zeff and his design team have developed a truly revolutionary power supply and Class-D switching device control solution for the ARC Series amplifiers. In the unlikely event that the master clock and output switching frequency of an ARC Series amplifier interferes with radio reception, keyless entry systems or causes beat frequencies with another amplifier; the installer can adjust the Master Clock frequency of the power supply and output circuits within the IPS8.8 Software Suite. This is all courtesy of ARC Audios new TAMB technology (Patent Pending) that is equipped on all ARC Series amplifiers.
