For 2012, JVC has updated its DRVN Series with three new step-up car amplifiers designed for ease of use offering easier installation, upgrade and control with the brand’s patented dynamic audio delivery circuitry. All terminals are mounted a single side of the chassis with covers so mounting holes are covered with a clean look. Parallel drive MOS-FET Power Supplies increase efficiency allowing the new amplifiers to carry up to an extra 20% of current from single MOS-FET designs.
