XM-1ES | Mobile ES™ Mono Power Amplifier
Enjoy dynamic sound with an output power of 600 W x1 RMS at 4 ohms / 1,000 W x1 RMS at 2 ohms. The highly efficient class-D amplifier boosts your in-car music, adding a powerful and clear low end to your favourite tunes.
Sony's expertise and long years of engineering experience with digital amplifiers has made it possible to realise a compact and powerful amplifier, with uncompromising sound quality.
To reproduce powerful and clean low end, the power supply block is optimally designed for low-noise, highly efficient electric power transmission, where the DC converter with a toroidal core transformer is chosen for less electro-magnetic interference.
The upgraded inductors with OFC wires are selected for lower internal resistance and improved sound character, while the high-capacity electrolytic capacitors contribute to precise and responsive bass.
The bottom plate with a 1.2 mm thickness and updated cross-bracing press design improve chassis rigidity by approximately 50%, reducing the resonance and shifting the resonance peak out of the vehicle's harsh vibration frequency band while improving damping performance dramatically.
Resonance damping characteristics
Controls for adjustments, and placement of connections, are logically placed for easy understanding and use. The carefully considered layout ensures both intuitive operation and installation simplicity.
The speaker terminal features Hex-key screws, providing a durable method of tightening the wire connections while accepting bare wire or wire ferrules (up to AWG #8) for superior electrical performance and high-quality sound, and safe connection.
The redesigned control panel features logical placements with easy-to-understand correlation, and updated graphics.
The new input selector can combine stereo audio signals into a monaural signal, before filtering to low-end. And you can even send the consolidated or passing through line-level signal onto other amps in the chain, allowing for flexible installation in various types of vehicles and audio system setups.
