The dimensions for NC2500 is:
8.125” x 5.5” x 2.125”

Confirmed from Mike the ratings of the amp adhere to the Hypex ratings of:

700w @ 4ohm
550w @ 2ohm
400w @ 8ohm
(per channel)

Bbfoto can chime in but like the BT2700-2 the NC2500 supports 12Awg speaker wire. It specifically had the more traditional Weidmuller Spring-Cage speaker terminals. So regular 12ga ferrules will work.

On the fuse rating he is simply suggesting the "smallest" rating to get the job done. Start at 40 amps and go up if need be.

That would be quite a feat.. If anyone wanted to send me one to compare, I'd surely do an AB comparison (no pun intended) with a Z150.6LX Zapco on mids and/or tweets and/or midbass as well to put it to an "ear" test. I'm rooting for these little NCores so, it'd be fun.
Not sure I’m ready to share the NCore amp yet..

But I did just snag up this little bitty brute off eBay for a steal...

The B2180:

259683


259684


259685


259686


259687


259688


259689


I’m going to swap out the stock fans for silent noctua fans and send to Biketronics to ensure everything is in tip top shape as well as have them perform input gain adjustment to ~4v.

So give me a couple weeks to a month.. I‘ll put together an easy connect kit and ship the mini punch out for you to demo (if your willing to pay the flat rate USPS).

Easy swap for the Noctua fans. Requires the removal of 6 enclosure screws and 4 Screws for the fans themselves.

The stock fan is 3 pin and the Noctua Fan is 3 pin as well, so no adapter is required. Just gently pull out the stock fan connectors and gently push in the Noctua fan connector onto the fan heading pins.

Stock fans are

EverCool EC4010M12CA:
Noise: 21 dB(A)
Airflow: 5.22 CFM
Power: 0.07A

Replacement fans are

Noctua NF-A4x10 FLX:
Noise: 17.4 dB(A)
Airflow: 8.2 CFM
Power: 0.05A

Stock fans:
259783


259786



Noctua Fans:
259784


259785


Time to send to Biketronics and soon we’ll have a forum demo amp(y)

Your next in line when Babs returns it.
I'm about half serious really.. If someone really wants to get on it and give them an AB test, I say go. :)

Appreciate the fan swap tip! My BT4180 is still sitting around but I'll be doing this upgrade prior to install.

My DSP also puts out 8v so I may end up having the gain mod done by Biketronics as well.

Question BT2700-2 is it not 2ohms 700 watts rms per channel? Paralleled would be 350 watts rms per speaker?

I have a road glide 2018, have you graded a bit but I bought a Biketronics BT4180 along with that I put in for my 6.5” Hertz Millie MLK 1650.3 Legends in fairing and speaker pods on tour pack but used XTC custom crossovers vs the crossovers that came with hertz and I cranked it always on stock radio @10-12 sometimes to 16 volume and wow clean clear LOUD. Now I have NO 6.5’s I’m running Hertz SV 200.1 and ST25 in my fairing and Hertz ST 200 L and ST35 in both saddle bag lids and tour pack lids but on running fairing and tour pack lids... now at 10 and 12 out of 17 volume my ears ring LOL kidding it’s loud no speed and the loud exhaust system I have when I get on the bike over powers the amps loudness lol I’m wanting more power and eyes are on the BT700-2

Potentially yes. Looks like you quoted the power ratings I listed for the NC2500 (not the BT2700).



I would still reach out to Biketronics to confirm. It will depend on the final ohm load per channel and the ohm ratings of the speakers that are in parallel.

The amp platform is based on 4 x hypex UCD400LP modules that are internally bridged so that that each channel is 2 x 400 watt 4-ohm optimized modules in parallel for 700 watts at 2 ohms.

Last time I spoke to Mike he reported it puts out ~450 watts per channel @ 4ohms loads.



It’s the same case as the BT4180 so physically it will be a direct swap.

Also heads up for those curious.

While Biketronics has a satisfaction guarantee (if you buy an amp from them directly, you are able to return it no questions asked in 30 days or so for full refund if it’s not what to your liking), the price tag of the quality amps usually puts people on the fence. So I thought a demo amp would be a good idea to help entice those on the fence. Earlier this year I sent in a BT2180 of mine for input voltage adjustments that I was going to pass around as a demo amp for the community.

I shared this idea with Mike and after a couple conversations, he was intrigued by the concept and wanted to provide a more capable amp for demo purposes.

It’s been slowly brewing but let’s just say Biketronics has been cooking up an offering that should excite us car audio folks. Should be sending it out to me soon. I won’t release the details just yet but it will be more than 2 channels...

So stay tuned!

I’d like to see a 4 channel version of this BY4700-2
