Las Vegas, NV (January 6, 2012) – The eyes of the world are on Las Vegas this week for the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, and legendary car audio products manufacturer Phoenix Gold® (http://www.phoenixgold.com) today used this stage to formally introduce its new SX-Series of compact-sized car audio amplifiers, full size and slim subwoofers and a full line of speakers. Engineered to deliver massive power with a minimal footprint, the new SX-Series amplifiers are proof that truly great things can come in a smaller package, delivering the same features and performance as larger amplifiers, but at a fraction of the size. As for the subwoofers and speakers, they truly perform above their class, making them a tremendous value to the consumer. Visitors to the 2014 CES Show can see the new SX-Series from Phoenix Gold firsthand at booth 2808, LVCC North Hall.

 

AMPLIFIERS

The SX-Series includes five amplifiers: a 400-watt monoblock, a 600-watt monoblock, a 1200-watt monoblock, an 800 watt four-channel and a 1200-watt five channel. SX-Series amplifier features include:

 

• Ultra-efficient Class D Topology

• ADAPT power management (SX800.4, SX1200.5)

• Thermal rollback system circuitry (SX800.4, SX1200.5)

A major advantage of SX-Series amplifiers over the competition is that their Class D circuitry operates at 80% efficiency, while most class A/B amplifiers operate at only 50% efficiency. This means the SX-Series amplifiers generate less heat and draw much less current, meaning less stress on the vehicle’s electrical system and better overall performance. Plus, thermal rollback circuitry automatically adjusts the amplifier’s output in extreme temperatures so music will continue to play without the possibility of thermal shutdown or amplifier damage.
