USAcoustics USX 2050 Amplifier

[8/20/2000] Reviewed by Raymond Doan -

Applicable to '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

This is a 50 watt x 2 channels amplifer. It can safely drive 2 ohm loads at 80 watts x 2 channels. The Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) is .01%, very low. It outputs the 50 watts power at 12.9 volts, meaning it will play louder than most amplifiers which have an output voltage of 14.4. It includes line level and RCA inputs and one RCA output. There is also a high pass and low pass filter.

USAcoustics is known for making very clean amplifiers at a low cost. I have this amplifier mounted in my trunk against the wall where the taillights are on the driver's side. The headunit is a Pioneer DEH-P8200r and is powering Infinity 652i 6 1/2" speakers and the stock bass shakers in my seatbacks (you can see my review on the headunit and a Pioneer CD changer in this section). All four speakers are wired in parallel, which means I drove the amplifier down to a 2 ohm load. In a word, this amplifier sound great!! I have great sounding bass coming out of the system and can hear it with the top down at 75 mph!

I would recommend this amp to anyone looking to get a little more oomph out of their system.
