The XD600 is considered a very flexible car amp that offers some serious power, delivering an impressive seventy-five watts of power to six channels. The small NexD chassis is what makes this type of power possible. The XD features ultra-high-speed switching that’s designed for class D operation with full bandwidth. And even better, you can listen to your favorite tracks, as loud as you want, without running into any static or distortion.
Overview and Features
JL Audio has done it again by creating a versatile six-channel car amp that can be used in a variety of ways. According to the manufacturer, this model can be used as a standard satellite amp, or you can bridge four of the channels in order to create a four-channel amp with staggered power. The amp can also be used to drive a couple of subs.
This model includes a twelve-decibel octave filter for every channel bank. This can be configured as a high or low pass filter and provides a continuous variable frequency that ranges from fifty up to five hundred Hz.
The Polk Audio PA D5000.5 900W RMS doesn’t offer this type of versatility, yet it’s one of the XD600’s top competitors. Additionally, this model features a six-channel design while the D5000.5 is a basic five-channel model.
The amp also comes with the V2 feature set. It includes a dual range differential balanced input section and automatic turn-on capability. The input section can handle a wide variety of input voltage levels.
The manufacturer sells an HDRLC remote level control that allows the amp’s level to be controlled directly from the driver’s seat.
The amp has a thick powder-coated finish that’s completed with a brushed aluminum gasket cover for the control portion of the amp.
Most JL Audio amps pack a ton of power that’s often more than what consumers expect from such as small device. This amp offers a super-compact design that will play your favorite music with impressive impact and true fidelity. Despite the fact that this amp delivers plenty of power, it won’t strain or negatively impact your vehicle’s electrical system. The advanced cooling system combined with the cast alloy heat-sink works to keep the amp at an optimal temperature which eliminates thermal shutdowns, so you can enjoy your music without any interruptions.
Since the XD600 is so versatile, you can set it up in pretty much any type of system. It delivers seventy-five watts RMS for each channel to a few pairs of speakers, or it can drive a full set of woofers and tweeters with four of the channels while powering up a sub using the other two.
Or users can choose to bridge four channels in order to power a couple of subwoofers while leaving a couple of channels free to run the front speakers. The low and high pass filters allow you to have more control over your sound.
The amp’s differential balanced inputs will keep the signals free of outside noise, allowing users to connect the amp to even factory stereos with no preamp outputs.
