Product Description

Features & Specifications




JL Audio XD1000/5v2 1000 Watt 5 Channel Amplifier (XD1000/5v2)

The JL Audio XD1000/5v2 delivers up to 1000 W of clean power and is ideal for an audiophile-grade, subwoofer + four high quality full range speakers. With this potent amplifier, you can drive two pairs of quality component speaker systems with plenty of clean power (75 W x 4 @ 4 ?), while also delivering a stout 600 W of power to a subwoofer system. The breakthrough that makes this much power possible in such a small chassis is our NexD™ switching amplifier design that provides clean and distortion free signal.

The JL Audio XD1000/5v2 includes a 12 dB / octave high-pass filter for one main channel pair, a 12 dB octave high-pass or bandpass filter for the other main channel pair, plus a variable slope low-pass filter for its subwoofer channel. All three filters offer continuously variable cutoff frequency selection from 50-500 Hz. This amplifier’s filters can also be configured as a true 3-way crossover, with a low-pass filter for the subwoofer channel, a bandpass filter on Ch. 3 & 4, and a high-pass filter on Ch. 1 & 2. An “x10” multiplier switch on the Ch. 1 & 2 high-pass filter allows its cutoff frequency to be adjusted from 50-500 Hz or 500-5000 Hz.

This one amp will power your entire system

XD1000/5v2 connection and control panels

JL Audio’s XD1000/5v2 amp packs a wallop far beyond what you’d expect from something so small. This compact amp plays your music with true fidelity and impressive impact, without straining your car’s electrical system. A cast alloy heatsink and an advanced cooling system keep this amp at optimal temperature, eliminating thermal shut-downs so your music keeps going strong without interruption.

This 5-channel amp can power your vehicle’s entire system, delivering 75 watts RMS to each of your front and rear speakers, while powering a sub with up to 600 watts. You can also switch to 3-channel mode, and power a pair of high-performance speakers with 200 watts each, while still driving a sub with 600 watts.

High- and low-pass filters give you intimate control over the character of your sound. “Differential-balanced” inputs keep the signals clear of outside noise, and allow you to connect this amp to just about any in-dash stereo, even a factory radio with no preamp outputs. An optional wired remote lets you tweak the level of the subwoofer or the whole system from your front seat.

NexD™ Switching Technology

NexD™ amplifier technologies produce exceptional audio quality, unsurpassed total efficiency and high power from very compact amplifier designs.

Detailed Information:
Beginning with the original ‘Slash’ subwoofer amplifiers, JL Audio has been at the forefront of Class D amplifier design. Today, our flagship Single-Cycle Control™ technology sets the ultimate standard for Class D amplifier performance. The NexD™ amplifiers may be a bit less complex, more compact and more affordable, but they flow from the same minds that have set the trend in mobile amplifier technology for over a decade.

Let’s get a little nerdy… A traditional PWM switching amp design uses a fixed switching frequency and varies the pulse width based solely on the audio input signal to the pulse modulator. This basic approach assumes some ideal conditions, like a rock-steady power supply, that do not necessarily occur in a real, in-car installation. Power supply sag with signal causes distortion at all power levels with these designs, even well below clipping. The cure for this is feedback (a corrective signal sent back to the input side), but this becomes impractical as the audio frequency increases, making it a good solution for band-limited (subwoofer) amps, but not for full-range amplifiers.

Taking the above into account when designing the NexD™ subwoofer amplifiers, we have taken the simple fixed PWM approach and enhanced it with a very high switching frequency: 240 kHz, which is about 4x higher than most Class D subwoofer amplifiers. This pushes the amplifier’s bandwidth to at least 500 Hz with minimal distortion and improves efficiency, while keeping typically bulky circuity more compact. Your subwoofers will reward you with tight, rock-solid bass performance.

For the full-range NexD™ amplifiers and channels we 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 the JL Audio XD1000/5v2 has simply great audio: is clean, powerful and reliable.

Advanced Rollback Protection

JL Audio’s exclusive Advanced Rollback Protection circuit (included with the JL Audio XD1000/5v2) monitors the amplifier’s thermal condition and adjusts amplifier operation to eliminate annoying amplifier shut-down events.

Detailed Information:
Should a JL Audio amplifier equipped with Advanced Rollback Protection reach an unsafe operating temperature, a special circuit rolls back peak power output, without changing gain, until the amplifier cools down to a safe operating temperature. The red “Thermal” LED will light to indicate this condition has been reached. Once the amplifier cools down, the circuit restores full peak power output and the red “Thermal” indicator reverts to its normal state. The operation of Advanced Rollback Protection is inaudible in most cases, but it ensures that your music keeps on playing, even under the most demanding conditions.

The XD1000/5v2 also features the v2 Spec feature set, which consists of automatic turn-on capability (via signal sensing or DC-offset sensing), and a dual-range differential-balanced input section able to handle a wide range of input voltage levels. With the addition of an HD-RLC remote level control (sold separately), the amplifier’s level can be directly controlled from the driver’s seat.

This amplifier features a black powder-coat finish and a gasketed, brushed aluminum cover for the controls.
