  • How Much Amplifier Power Do I Need?



While the RSA-500 subwoofer amplifier was primarily designed for use with the RW-5802 and RW-5101-C in-wall subwoofers, it also features custom settings for the AW-800-SW outdoor subwoofer.

  • EQ switch for use with different subwoofers
  • Selectable signal-sensing or voltage triggered auto-on/off circuit
  • 300 watts continuous into 8 ohms or 500 watts continuous into 4 ohms
  • Line and speaker level inputs
  • Rack ears included

This high-powered device will drive up to two of any of these subwoofer modules and delivers 300 watts into an 8-ohm load (one subwoofer module) and 500 watts into a 4-ohm load (two subwoofer modules). It also comes with rack ears for fast and secure placement into any standard 19-inch rack.

To keep end users from inadvertently tampering with performance levels, the majority of the RSA-500’s controls are housed on its rear panel. The fuse is also included on the back for quick and easy replacement. A detachable IEC power cord allows for the simple removal and reinstallation of the entire amplifier unit. The RSA-500 was also designed to “play nice” by offering standard input/output connectivity that will support any type of system.
