JL Audio M700/5 700 Watt 5 Channel Marine Amplifier
The JL Audio M700/5 is perfect for powering 4 speakers and a single subwoofer. These JL Audio M-series amplifiers use JL Audio NexD switching technology to deliver significant power that is super clean, all while keeping heat to a minimum. The JL Audio M700/5 is amazing because you can rail on it all day, regardless of how hot it is outside, and this amplifier is going to deliver.
For the speakers, the JL Audio M700/5 puts out 75 watts to 4 channels at 4 ohms, 100 watts to 4 channels at 2 ohms, and 200 watts to 2 channel when bridged at 4 ohms. For the subwoofer channel, the M700/5 puts out 180 watts at 4 ohms and 300 watts at 2 ohms. In most situations, this amplifier will be used to power a single, 4 ohm subwoofer with 180 watts of RMS power. JL is able to deliver this power while also staying cool, and minimizing distortion thanks to their NeXD switching technology. The switching technology with NexD swtiches the amplifier with super high frequency, over 400 Khz, and reads the power supply voltage to cancel out any distortion due to voltage fluctuation. This delivers unrivaled efficiency and less distortion means less heat. Less heat means that your amps run cooler, sound better, and you don't have to worry about them cutting out when you are out at the sandbar and the party is rockin'.
In addition to the NexD switching technology, the M700/5 also uses JL's Advanced Rollback Protection. The Advanced Roll Back Protection technology monitors the amplifiers temperature to eliminate shut-downs. There is nothing worse than being out on the boat, having a great time, the music's turned up load, it's hot, and waaah waaah wahhhhhhhhhh, your amplifier shuts off because it got too hot. Major party foul! With the M700/5 with Advanced Rollback Protection the amplifier cuts off ONLY the peak power output when it senses that it is getting too hot and it rolls back the power so that the music keeps playing, but because it's only at the peaks you don't notice. This allows the amplifier to cool itself down, and get back to normal operating temperatues without you, your friends, and fellow party people even noticing. In addition, when the amplifier is back within "Normal" operating temperatures, it will automatically go back to full output. You don't have to turn the amp on or off. This allows everyone to continue the good times, without noticing any loss in sound quality, when it's hot out and you have been blasting your stereo all day.
From a signal processing standpoint, the M700/5 includes a 12 dB / octave filter for the full range channels and a selectable 12/24 dB/octave crossover for the subwoofer channel. Channels 1 and 2 have a high pass filter, channels 3 & 4 have a selectable, high-pass or bandass filter, and the subwoofer channel is low pass only.
Don't forget to add an an MHD-RLC remote level control (sold separately) to give you quick and easy control and adjustments for your subwoofer.
