JL Audio MX500-1 – Monoblock Class D Wide-Range Amplifier 500 W
Engineered specifically for powersports applications, the JL Audio MX500-1 monoblock amplifier employs JL’s high-speed NexD™ switching design to pack a serious audio punch, without straining charging systems. Its tiny, cast aluminum chassis is highly resistant to corrosion, with an IPX6 water-resistance rating, making it perfect for motorcycles, ATV’s or other utility vehicles.
With a robust 500W of clean power into a 2-ohm load (14.4V, 1% THD), use one to drive a subwoofer, or grab a pair to deliver stunning output to a subwoofer system. The JL Audio MX500-1 also features an adjustable low-pass crossover, a bass boost EQ, variable infrasonic filter and output polarity switch. Its dual-range input section accepts a wide range of input voltage levels, from line-level all the way to high-power speaker level signals. With the addition of an M-RBC-1 remote level control (sold separately), subwoofer output can be directly controlled from the driver’s seat.
This amplifier features a black powder-coated finish, a gasketed cover for the controls and stainless steel hardware for durability.
NexD™ Switching Technology
NexD amplifier technologies produce exceptional audio quality, unsurpassed total efficiency and high power from very compact amplifier designs.
For the full-range NexD™ amplifiers and channels JL Audio applied a variable, ultra-high speed version of the NexD™ technology (switching at well over 400 kHz). In these designs, a self-oscillating modulator with “feed-forward” sends information about the instantaneous power supply voltage to the modulator, combining this with the input signal to cancel out any distortion due to supply voltage fluctuation. This reduces distortion prior to applying feedback, simplifying the overall feedback loop design. The bottom line is simply great audio: clean, powerful and reliable.
