I just use heat shrink, it helps to keep the strains together tight. I never have a problem with copper showing.

I suggest these with shrink to hold them. CAF did a youtube on it.

Well I love the amp but the power supply connection for + and - suck. The opening is too small and the opening doesn't allow for the jacket to countersink. Not the worst of faults, though compared to what all could go wrong in this world so I'm not worried about it.

I just did the trusty solder the end of the wire before removing the sheathing trick. It's fine now.

Finally bit the bullet and bought one of these. Having come from Mcintosh amps, I'm totally satisfied with my purchase,smooth, dynamic and tons of power.

Sometimes you'll hear a somebody say, "this amp is underrated." Meaning they think the amp has more power than they advertize. I don't think I've ever heard that about a class D amp. It's true that most Class D's already have plenty of power, so maybe it's just that their are no 50W D amps that need to sound louder?

Depends on the amp. The 2 Alpine PDX-V9's and the PDX-M12 that I ran before my Arc's all had much higher than expected numbers on their birth sheets.

....and I'm sure it was at a voltage 99% of the public will never maintain in a car.

Even so, at 12v it's still going to put out more wattage than normally rated for that voltage.

Works great. Oddly enough, with my PS8, I find that I'm using my XDi v2 600.4 with the gains turned all the way down to minimum. I'm guessing they're a perfect match, so no gain from the amp required but I would've expected the minimum gain setting on the amp would be something less than unity.

At any rate, it sounds WAY better than the shitty Rockford Fosgate Power T800-ad that I had in there before. Much lower noise floor and the higher end of the spectrum in the audio playing doesn't sound rough anymore. Fantastic little beast and the perfect partner for the PS8.

Like everyone else though, the power connection sucks balls. That's a fundamental design flaw which I'm surprised Arc got wrong. The Rockford had more generously sized terminals to accommodate the 4GA cable. I ended up using ferrules that I had spare in my toolbox to keep them in place, though sirb00m's idea of thinly tinning the front end with solder and then stripping the end of the cable is an acceptable trick too.

The gains on this amp start from 3.5 volts that's why with most high voltage sources it's not necessary to turn them up.

It does sound great even at high volume levels.

Another alternative is you can divide the stripped off wire end into half and use a cutter to cut one half off and then use the remaining strands to hook up the wire to the amp, having tried it myself no problems at all.

And you're right, there wouldn't be any problems but I'm a perfectionist. All in or all out.

I'm looking for the damping rating on these i cant seem to find it..the xdi manual doesnt say either from what i've seen. i didn't read it 100% but i read a fair bit and read all the specs but nothing :-\

really? i wonder what the damping rating on the moto's are, that must be the big difference in the amps. I really want something high end...well i just want as much as i can get and i wanna run my arc black 12 at 4 ohms,

Damping factor specs are possibly the most overrated and meaningless specifications. It doesn't make one amplifier better than another, and it certainly doesn't mean a paticular amplifier is "high-end" because it has a high damping factor.

oh? well just trying to decide practicly, if i can't read specs, how can one decide what to buy purley on what people say they think sounds good car audio's annoying at times...just trying to bring some sense to the madness. I do like how this OP compared the HD's because i was considering the HD's vrs these right now. their pretty comparable it seems in many reguards, i still dont understand the difference in the moto line from arc :\

Default Re: Arc Audio XDi 1200.6 Review!

That's not to say that no specifications matter. Just that damping factor isn't a useful specification for comparing one amplifier to another.

And once you reach a certain minimum build quality, most all amplifiers are going to have very similar specs. Picking between one amplifier and another based on specifications is a crap shoot at best. Even low quality products can have published specs that are just as good as a high-end product. There's no governing body that fact checks the manufacturer to make sure they're playing fair.

If you're deciding between the Arc xdi and JL HD amplifiers, IMO you really can't go wrong either way. Both are well built, sound clean, and make plenty of power. If the look or finish of a certain amplifier fits better in your install, that's as good of a reason as any to choose that particular one.

The Moto Amplifier was designed to fit in a motorcycle. pretty much the same specs as the xdiv2 600.4. The Moto is smaller in size to help with mounting in the fairing.

Yeah that's what it looked like thought maybe it was a higher end version with gold capped caps and or something along them lines. But it had the same sowcs I was like why would they even waste time.

yeah your paying the extra for the smaller size( size of a single din headunit), the weather protected board which can withstand outside exposure temperatures and elements.

Default Arc Audio XDi 1200.6 Review!

Sorry to resurrect an old thread BUT...

Thanks for this review. I've been toying with the idea of finding a 6 channel amp (that had enough power at 4 ohms) to run my whole front stage (3-way) active...minimizing the amount of amplifiers I have to mount in my vehicle.

I guess my biggest concern was....will doing a Class D amp on my mids/tweets sacrifice some SQ compared to running a Class A/B. (And I'm sure the answer is yes in some form or fashion)

Sounds like these things still do the job well enough tho. Thinking of pairing this one, with the Arc Audio KS 2500.1...it does 1400 watts at 2 ohms.

Feed it to my two Audiofrog GB12D2's. 700 watts to each sub....golden!
