Detailed Description
(Manufacturer # THUNDER 500.1 )
Features
  • Small Footprint
  • Selectable Bass Boost: 0, 6, or 12dB
  • Surface Mount PCB Design
  • Variable Butterworth Crossover 12dB/Oct
  • Variable Subsonic Filter
  • Thermal, DC Offset, and Short Circuit Protection Circuitry
  • Extruded Aluminum Heat Sink

Easy Adjustment
The control panel on the THUNDER500.1 is easy to access and make adjustments. The unit includes a variable low pass filter and a selectable bass boost, 0, +6, or +12dB. The unit also features a subsonic filter that can be used in conjunction with a vented enclosure for optimal sound quality.

Secure Connections
The THUNDER500.1 uses set screw type connections for both its power and speaker terminals. The power and ground inputs will support up to a 4 AWG wire and the speaker inputs can support up to a 12 AWG wire. Set screw type connectors provide the most secure connection minimizing power loss and delivering all the power to the amplifier and to the speakers.

High Power High Value
The THUNDER500.1 is a high powered subwoofer amplifier capable of delivering up to 500 watts RMS power at 2Ω. Additionally, the unit is designed to be installed in almost any vehicle due to its small chassis size.

Technologically Advanced
The THUNDER500.1 features surface mount technology. This design uses smaller more efficient parts that adhere to the circuit board much better than traditional through hole designs making it extremely vibration resistant.

Compact Design -
The small footprint chassis allows for installation in space challenged vehicles

Selectable Bass Boost -
Selectable 0, 6, or 12dB bass boost centered @ 50Hz

Variable Butterworth Crossover -
a 12dB/Oct crossover that allows you to set the frequency your speakers will play down or up to

Variable Subsonic Filter -
A variable low frequency, high pass filter designed to block potentially damaging bass frequencies

Triple Protection Circuitry -
Thermal, DC Offset, and Short Circuit Protection circuitry ensures the amplifier will protect itself in the event of a problem

Extruded Aluminum Heat Sink -
The custom heat sink design maximizes heat transfer away from the circuitry protecting the amplifier

Surface Mount PCB Design -
Decreases chassis size, improves layout efficiency and increases vibration resistance without sacrificing performance or sound.
Technologically Advanced
This amp features a high-efficiency Class D circuit design chosen for its ability to produce high output power while minimizing power loss to heat build-up. It’s this capability that makes it perfect for driving woofers to their limits and delivering that vehicle shaking bass you want.

It’s not just the circuit type that makes this amp tick, but also the parts used and how they are installed. We use surface mount technology to help create the compact design of the amplifier and improve its reliability and resistance to vibration. High grade components are chosen for the quality and to ensure the amplifier delivers maximum power output when you need it.

In addition to the circuit design, we’ve also added the features you need to fine tune your system sound such as the built-in variable low pass crossover, selectable bass boost circuit and variable subsonic filter. Additionally, we know how important the speaker and power connections are to a properly working sound system. This is why we use set-screw style terminals to provide the most secure connection possible which minimizes any power loss while delivering all the power to the amplifier and to the speakers.
