Here we have the smallest amp I've ever tested on my Amp Dyno, the Taramps DS 160x2. This $53, palm sized amp is almost laughable to think it could provide any amplification. Let's take a closer look at this mighty might, test it on the SMD Amp Dyno, try it with some speakers and subs, then open it up to see what makes this little amp work.

I replied on YouTube but I'll say it again here....I've been using this one since Nov to power the Mids from my 10YO Infinity Kappa 60.9CS on my Goldwing! It works great but knew it wasn't hitting rated. Built in Highpass limits freq response to 50Hz ~ 24KHz (I said 90hz on YouTube and I'll have to look for my manual but I'm pretty sure that's what it said) on Taramps website. Great so far and always turns on via Signal sense. 

 

Derrick/Anyone with the knowledge. How do amps without gain settings like this one promise a fixed Input sensitivity and still work with High level inputs when some of them can have higher output Voltage?

 

did you have to adjust the level from the PRS80 to compensate?
