Alpine X-Power Series Mono Power Amplifier, Model MRXM50
Harnessing the technology found in their benchmark-setting PDX digital amplifiers,
Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. introduces the new X-Power family of amplifiers.
The four new amplifiers provide digital amplifier technology at a lower price
point. Alpine offers a complete lineup of amplifiers, totaling twelve models
plus one add-on power pack.
The X-Power amplifiers use Global Modulation digital technology based on Alpine’s
PDX architecture, so they share many of the attributes that make the PDX amplifiers
so popular. For the first time, the X-Power amplifiers bring these advanced
digital technologies to price-friendly levels.
The MRX-M50 is remote bass knob capable, allowing consumers to adjust subwoofer
level without having to access the amplifier itself (uses RUX-KNOB, sold separately).
This model uses a variable 5-30Hz subsonic filter to optimize power or improve
subwoofer reliability in ported enclosures. As well, the MRX-M50 has a bass
EQ that allows a boost at 50Hz, making it ideal for adding punch to subwoofers
in sealed or ported enclosures.
- Small size, high efficiency – The X-Power amplifiers have a small
footprint with 80% total efficiency
- Clean output – The X-Power amplifiers offer the best performance
in their class with wide bandwidth (5Hz – 45KHz), excellent signal-to-noise
(greater than 90dB for mono models, at 1 watt), very low distortion (less
than <0.04% THD+N for mono models) and extremely high damping factor (>1000
for mono models,)
- Sound quality – X-Power amplifiers use Global Modulation Technology
with Adaptive Feedback Control, whereas PDX amplifiers use Global Modulation
Technology with discrete Active Error Correction.
- Power management processor – The X-Power amplifiers incorporate an
internal monitoring system that optimizes power output, to keep the music
playing even under extreme heat and load conditions.
- Installation flexibility – Their small size and versatile controls
allow the X-Power amplifiers to work with aftermarket or OEM systems.
- 300W RMS x 1 [4 ohm @ 14.4V = 0.04% THD+N]
- 500W RMS x 1 [2 ohm @ 14.4V = 0.06% THD+N]
- S/N: 90dB @ 1W/4 ohm
