Amp Test Tuesday - CT Sounds AT1400.1d - Guess the # and win it! VIDEO RESULTS PAGE 10

Recommended Posts

This week's Amp Test Tuesday, in case you didn't notice by the title, is the CT Sounds AT1400.1d.

First impressions. A very sexy amp. I really dig the white, it is a nice change. I also like the lit up logo. I love the bass knob with built in amp turn on/off.

there was one little issue. The box has ratings on the back that basically state it is a 1400x1 @ 12.8v amplifier. The book says 1200 watts and gives no voltage rating.

I tested the amp with my 12v bank which consists of 3 fully charged XS Power XP3000 Batteries. I also tested it with my 14.5v bank which, as you might already know by now, is 3, fully charged XS Power D1400 batteries. I use a single xs power, HF battery charger on each bank. They are only 15a. Not really much a "power supply", but they do keep the batteries topped off in between runs. Here is a link to the charger i use (the HF1215 and 1415). http://www.wccaraudio.com/xs-power.html?cat=10
I know in the past i referred to those chargers as 10a but that was a mistake. I don't know why i said 10, total verbal "typo". Anyhow, the extra 5a isn't making a drastic difference, it just charges the batteries up that much faster. If anything, it gives the amplifier 5a more of a chance to make its number. Picture a battery bank with a 15 amp alternator on it. :D

Anyhow, who wants to play a game?

Results @ 12.8v
Power supply: 3 XS Power XP3000
(Fully charged Once for all tests)
Impedance: 1ohm

Certified @ 1% Distortion: x,xxx Watts
UnCertified @ Clipping: x,xxx watts
Dynamic Power (RMS) @ Clipping: x,xxx watts

Results @ 14.5v
Power supply: 3 XS Power D1400
(Fully charged Once for all tests)
Impedance: 1ohm

Certified @ 1% Distortion: x,xxx Watts
UnCertified @ Clipping: x,xxx watts
Dynamic Power (RMS) @ Clipping: x,xxx watts


Add up all of those numbers together. Yes, all 6. If anyone here guesses the exact number, i will give you the amplifier. I honestly do NOT want to part with it. I like it. But if you guess the number i am looking for, it will be yours. As a bonus, if you are a GOLD, Silver or Bronze supporting member of this site, AND you guess the number, i will personally buy you a matching mids/highs amp to go with this. If you are a GOLD supporting member, you get the mids/highs amp, the 1400.1d and will also get a CC-1 Crossover Calibrator as shown in the video. Regardless, to play the game you must be a member of this site (supporting or not), and post your guesses HERE. Not on Facebook or twitter, but here in this thread. If you are NOT a member, its easy! use "facebook connect" and join almost instantly!

now, on with the pics! See you guys on Tuesday!

My official guess is 10,227 rms watts. That is the total of all 6.

Good luck everyone! Sexy ass amp for sure.
