Pioneer GM-ME500X1 1-Channel Class D 1600w Max Power Mono Bridgeable Marine Amplifier

Pioneer's GM-ME500X1 is a Marine grade Class-D digital amplifier specifically designed for the marine environment, including features such as special painting, protective covers for the side panels, and RCA terminal covers.

  • 300 watts x 1 channel @ 4 ohms
  • 500 watts x 1 channel @ 2 ohms
  • 800 watts x 1 channel @ 1 ohm
  • Total RMS Power: 800 watts
  • Class D 1 ohms Stable Monoblock Amplifier

To prevent circuit shutdown, Pioneer's GM-ME500X1 digital amplifier circuit includes a "Protection Control System" that senses its internal temperature and automatically moderates input level accordingly. Stable, durable circuitry lessens the risk of high input power for the unit to achieve a 1 Ω connection. This design enhances the flexibility to connect multiple subwoofers to a system.

For extra flexibility, easy installation is guaranteed thanks to "Automatic Signal Sensing and Turn-On", which automatically detects an input signal and turns the amplifier on and off when connected via the speaker line input.

Variable Low Pass Filter (LPF) means you can adjust the audio frequency more according to the subwoofer characteristics and personal listening preferences. The GM-ME500X1 also includes a wired Bass Boost Remote Control.

The GM-ME500X1 has a sleek design thanks to its white cosmetics and hairline top plate enhancing the high quality sense of design and a total of 1600W.
