Houston, TX - Wet Sounds is proud to release its new Sinister series of marine amplifiers. The Sinister amplifiers are the highest power to size amplifiers anywhere in the world for car or marine use.
The Sinister amplifiers use superior performance circuitry by utilizing Wet Sounds exclusive next generation full range Class D technology combined with Wet Sounds MAXED™ Power supply. The MAXED power supply is a patent pending technology designed to provide high efficiency levels never thought to be achievable in a mobile audio amplifier. What this means to you. Less current draw, less strain on the electrical system, less generated heat. All this results in more play time! The Sinister amplifiers share one size full cast aluminum chassis for all models making installation a breeze and the ability to have a clean install.
All Sinister amplifiers feature a fully conformal coated four-layer pcb board, single side power, speaker and input section and top mounted controls with removable cover. Sinister amplifiers have a backlit Wet Sounds shield logo with selectable illumination for red, white or blue that can be mounted horizontally or vertically for flexible amplifier placement. Other features include high pass/low pass/full range crossovers, flexible inputs source selection for single or multiple RCA channel input, RCA pass through on 4ch and 2ch, and removable speaker plugs that accept large gauge wire.
The sinister amplifiers are not only extremely powerful, but also intelligent with a built in microprocessor controller for over-voltage protection, under-voltage protection, DC offset and speaker short protection, as well as thermal rollback to ensure consistent play in the harsh marine environment.
One of the most amazing aspects of the Sinister amplifiers design is the efficiency rating. All Sinister amplifiers achieve their efficiency rating at full 4 ohm rated power. The 6 ch is 82%, the 4ch is 84% and the 2ch is 86%. This translates into less current draw and less generated heat. Over twice that of a conventional class AB amplifier and more efficiency than any other full range class D amplifier.
CEA 2006 Power Ratings and USA MSRP for the Sinister series are:
- SD6 6-channel amplifier does an amazing 185 watts x 6 at 4 ohms, 290x6 at 2 ohms and bridged the amplifier does 585x3 at 4 ohms. MSRP $1,199
- SD4 4-channel amplifier does an impressive 185 watts x 4 at 4 ohms, 340x4 at 2 ohms and bridged the amplifier does 685x2. MSRP $1,099
- SD2 2-channel amplifier does an insane 400 watts at 2 at 4 ohms, 620x2 at 2 ohms and bridged the amplifier does 1250x1 at 4 ohms mono. MSRP $1,049
