What years where the ZXti series amplifiers produced?
1999 - Present
Why does the ZXti series amplifiers have such small output power at 12 volts compared to 14 volts?
The 12 volt rating is very conservative and used in most competition organizations.
How much power does my ZXti amplifier make at 2 ohms bridged?
When designing the ZXti amps we wanted a
design that made its best power at normal loads. By that we mean 4 ohms bridged.
Now we know that no matter what we say or how loud we say it people will still
hook the amp up to lower impedances trying to get more power. So our number one
goal is that the amp continue to operate at lower impedances. The only way to do
that is to limit the power output of the amp when it's hooked up to lower
impedances. But it really isn't that big of a deal. Here's why:
If you want to run the amp 2 ohms bridged, go for it. Just understand that it will run slightly hotter and will pull more current from your car to make those musical peaks (add more capacitors and use thick gauge power/ground wire). I wouldn't recommend running it 1 ohm bridged. The amp will shut down (red LED) if the output current gets too high (looks like a shorted speaker).
