Code name Warhorse, the WX10000.1 Signal-Modulated Subwoofer amplifier
is a massive marvel. It's big, stepping in at just short of a yard long, a foot-and-a-half wide, and weighing nearly 67 pounds. It's bad, producing more than 10,000 watts while requiring the services of eight 12-volt batteries and two 200-ampere alternators. And it's more than any one can handle (actually, kicker
recommends that two installers grab drills and mount this monster.). Without doubt, the Warhorse has the size and power, but it also houses a secret under its enormous shroud. The WX10000.1 revolutionizes traditional amplification with its signal-modulated, ultra-high-efficiency design. It amplifies audio signal directly to DVC subwoofers from the patent-pending, signal-modulated power supply, rather than relying on help from amplification circuits found in traditional Class D or Class A/B designs. This results in efficiency ratings unheard of in mobile audio - 90-percent efficiency at a 2-ohm load and 93-percent efficiency at a 4-ohm load at full power! Warhorse's features are groundbreaking. Four custom planar transformers that handle 5,000 watts each and help boost efficiency, the latest Texas Instruments® industrial-grade DSP for controlling signal processing and protection circuitry, heavy-duty, solid-copper bus bars for maximizing current capabilities, 50-ampere Anderson speaker connectors that provide specific safeguards against extremely high voltage signal... nothing was overlooked in the four-year design process.
