Class D monoblock amplifier
The PA 1200.1 monoblock subwoofer has the capability of connecting two or more amplifiers of the same power rating together in a master/slave combination for increased power with accurate level matching.
Monoblock amplifier for subwoofers like our MM and db models.
1200 Watts x 1 (1 ohm), 800 Watts x 1 (2 ohm) and 400 Watts x 1 (4 ohm) continuous power. CEA-2006 compliant specifications for true, accurate power ratings.
Externally bridgeable with a second PA1200.1- for even more power!
Bridged power is 2400 watts (2 ohm) continuous and 4800 Watts dynamic power!.
1 ohm stable design can drive even the most demanding subwoofers.
Super efficient class D pulse width modulation amplifier design draws less power and runs cooler, so you won’t heat up the inside of your vehicle or make the headlights dim.
High-speed MOSFET switching power supply and high current bipolar output transistors pump maximum voltage and high current to your speakers or subwoofers.
Double layer fiberglass epoxy printed circuit boards for more rigidity and less shrinkage, with plated through-holes instead of jumpers, for twice the amount of component contact area.
6-way Smart System Protection (SSP) circuits: Power and ground-reversal protection, thermal and short protection, current overdraw and low impedance protection circuits with auto-standby mode ensure safety, reliability and durability.
Anodized extruded brushed-aluminum cover for maximum heat dissipation and great looks!
Cast aluminum textured end caps for optimized heat dissipation and hiding of connectors. Solid aluminum logo and model panel back lit in cobalt blue.
Adjustable 12 dB/octave low-pass crossover (30-250 Hz).
Switchable 8 dB bass boost at 40Hz for extra bass thump.
Variable input gain optimizes match with different signal sources (250mv to 7.5V).
Switchable 24 dB/octave subsonic filter protects ported subwoofers.
Switchable 180° phase inversion for easy sub to main integration or external bridge mono operation.
Mounting hardware with rubber isolation grommets and extra fuses included.
Light bar/fan output-Connect an optional LED light bar or cooling fan for custom installations.
Multi-color status LED gives instant information on amplifier operation.
Remote subwoofer level adjuster included.
Master/slave switch and RCA outputs for easy daisy chaining of other amplifiers. Master/slave switch allows parallel operation
Power and ground terminals accept bare wire up to 4 AWG.

Easy to conceal wires with the top plate. The plug for the LEDs and fans makes makes adding things easy even a line driver.
The only weakness I see is not really a weakness it is a inconvenice to the average user but is nessa cry with a amp this size most car don't have a extra 120 amps to spare for a amp. To have a built in cooling fan would be nice for tight spaced installs.
This 1200.1 is awesome I have been waiting for the PA series to come out put one of these on a A set of SR subs and everyone will ask you what is in your car. It is hard to believe they have fit so much power with such a small footprint. with the top off the amp can be hidden just about anywhere. The bass knobs LED along with Leds on the Top of the amp make any install look great.

Build quality, power, no turn on or off pops, good size.
None so far.
Got this along with the 500.4 for my system and I love them. This thing is a monster. Pushes my SR124DVC like a champ. Has the cool power jack like the others do that makes adding a fan or LED lighting much easier. The heatsink covers the wiring for cleaner looking installs. Considering the power this thing is capable of, its not that big. Much smaller than the 500.4 so itll be eaiser to squeeze it into spots. Like the 500.4, this one is built very solid, makes gobs of power and has no noise. What else can ya ask for?

Plenty of power for the price. Led light hook built in.
None so far, no pop on-off noises.
PA1200.1 is an amplifier that is well built, from the appreance to the power it produces. I am only using (2) of the new MM1040's Overkill, but do they sound awesome.

Power, sound quality, dynamics, accurate power ratings, stays cool, small and easy to hide, easy to attach fan or led lights, best amp you could possibly buy.
So far, I am yet to find anything weak about this amp. It's a freaking power house.
This amp is absolutely incredible!!!!! I have it pushing three kenwood kfc-w3012s at 1.33ohms and they hit hard!!!! I am amazed with this amp's power, and completely astounded by the phenomenal sound quality even at such a low impedance. The power ratings are super accurate, and even after pushing this amp to it's limit for long periods of time, it hardly even gets warm. People ask me what amp I'm pushing all the time. This is one impressive piece of machinery.

This amp is underrated, I have blown 3 different sets of 15"s, best amps I'll ever own
There is none
This amp from it's power to sound quality. I currently own two of these, both wired together bridged to 2 Kenwood exelon 12" and I couldnt ask for more.
