JVC KS-AR9501D Arsenal Digital Car Amplifier


1 ohm stable and produces a staggering 1800 Watts RMS x 1 channel at 1 ohm

The KS-AR9501D Arsenal Amplifier offers a slightly curved main unit for smooth design with multiple installation options. The illuminating panel and smoke controlled cover assist in easy under seat installation and other hard-to-see installing areas of your car. Encased in the KS-AR9501D are the large control keys, which need no tools for adjustment and are 2cm in diameter.

Compact and versatile, the JVC logo’d plate can be attached in four different ways for flexible settings. Cascade stacking allows for pairing of multiple amps and is useful with the external bridging function. The KS-AR9501D’s external bridging can be used through the optional pin connector, allowing the use of multiple amplifiers at once. Using one unit as your master, and the other as the slave, you can take two 1500W amps and push them to a total of 3000W at 2 ohms. All adjustments and control to your amplifier will be through the master unit, leaving the slave unit locked. Additionally, the RM-RK130, a wired bass boost remote control, can be added to the master unit. The KS-AR9501D digital amp is now available with an MSRP of $599.95.
