4 Ch. Class D Full-Range Amplifier, 400 W

JL Audio RD4004

Quick Specs

  • Type: Amplifiers
  • Energy Star Rated: No
 

4-Channel Class D Full-Range Amplifier, 100 W x 4 @ 2 / 75 W x 4 @ 4 - 14.4V


Utilizing our exclusive NexD™ high-speed switching technologies, the ultra-compact RD400/4 amplifier is engineered to deliver loads of audio output power, with incredible efficiency and low distortion. Don't let its modern styling and small size fool you though, this little powerhouse churns out 100 watts of crystal-clear audio from each of its four channels into 2 ohms (14.4V, 1% THD) and is fully bridgeable, so it can be used as a 3-channel amplifier, or as a 2-channel amplifier producing a whopping 200W x 2 into 4 ohms.

For your convenience, the RD400/4's controls can be found on top of the amplifier, beneath a protective cover, with all connections located along one side of its chassis. Studio-grade signal processing features include high or low-pass 12 dB / octave filters (defeatable) for each channel pair, with continuously variable frequency selection from 50-500 Hz, and dual-range, differential-balanced inputs capable of accepting most input voltage levels. Automatic turn-on capability (via signal sensing or DC-offset sensing) is standard equipment, along with all-new input type switches for bridging of stereo output channels without needing to use Y-adaptors.

Onboard LED-clipping indicators are also included with your RD400/4. This all-new, innovative feature lets you easily set your amplifier's input sensitivity settings, quickly and accurately, with no special equipment needed. You'll also find a set of preamp outputs on-hand, so you can pass signals to another amplifier, almost effortlessly. The RD400/4 features a durable, black powder-coated finish and a top-mounted, dual-color LED light strip that reports the overall status and condition.


Technology

NexD™ Switching Technology

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


Differential-Balanced Inputs

JL Audio's Differential-Balanced Inputs are engineered to combat induced cable noise, which is a common problem in car and marine audio installations. This technology allows for the use of conventional RCA cables, while delivering many of the benefits of a true balanced connection and accepting a wide range of input signal levels.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
