This item is a "Package Only" Product

What does this mean? Well, not all products are for the average DIY installers. Without proper training on the product, the test equipment for accurate setup, we restrict the sale of certain products for the trained professionals.

Our team is dedicated to offer products that are designed to improve the performance of your system, but we have to set boundaries of the capabilities of not only DIY consumers, but also not all shops/retailers/installers have the proper capabilities/training to provide you the performance necessary for this product.

If you would like to experience this product, look into our Plug & Play Packages along with our bundles that we offer. These are packages are personally curated by our team and provide a high level of performance from this product. Any questions, please contact our team.

The PS8-50 is an incredibly compact 8-channel amplifier that boasts the full suite of Pro-Series signal process in a compact chassis that will fit under the seat in or a storage compartment in almost any vehicle. Each channel of the PS8-50 will deliver up to 100 Watts of power and pairs of channels can be bridged to deliver an impressive 200 watts into a 4-Ohm Load. Finally, as the heart of an elaborate 4-way system, the PS8-50 includes a pair of stereo outputs that can drive an external amp while channels 5 and 6 of the processor are used in a bridged configuration to power a mid-bass driver or similar application that required large amounts of power.

Designed and engineered by Robert Zeff, the all-new PRO-Series DSP technology is a flexible and yet powerful platform that allows itself to be adapted to a wide variety of applications and products with zero compromises to sound quality. Capable of processing audio streams up to 192kHz at 32-bit, The ARC Audio Pro-Series DSP platform raises the bar on high-end audiophile and OEM integration system tuning with three new products. The new PS8-50 stand-alone exhibits the latest in OEM integration capabilities along with the most extensive and finite tuning features available for today's most discriminating audiophiles.

Just as with the PS8 the power of tuning has been left in the hands of the installer and user without the intervention of engineered auto-processing leaving you with only 80% of your system's capability. Featuring 248-bands of Third Octave -or- Parametric equalization with adjustments up to +20dB/-24dB per band in 1/10thdB increments by either individual band/global/mix adjustments, Output signal delay up to 30ms per channel, output phase 0/180 degrees per channel, Input and Advanced output signal mixers, output trim controls and one of the most extensive selections of crossover damping types and mixed slops available of any processor in the 12V market.
