Amplifiers

So why do you need to use an Amplifier?

Adding an amplifier into an audio system will greatly enhance the sound quality and the overall control of your speakers. An amplifier generates the power to drive the speakers properly and not just increases volume but allows the speakers or subwoofer to better produce and control the frequency you want them to play. We stock many different brands of amplifiers such as Hertz, Audison and Rainbow with varying prices to suit All Budgets.

Amplifiers come in all shapes and sizes, depending on quality, the power they produce and application they are used for.

Please read on for further information to help you choose what type of amplifier is right for you.

Audison SR1DMono Amplifier
A mono amp generally is designed to power a subwoofer and will normally be able to power more than one subwoofer at a time.  As with all amplifier purchases we would normally recommend you come into our store for a “Demo” of the options available to you as they vary greatly in quality and in power ratings which is often very confusing and this leads to you “Not Buying the right Amp for you”.

Two Channel Amplifer
This type of amplifier can be used in two ways.  It will power a pair of speakers, either front or rear, or you can ‘bridge’ the 2 channels into a single channel to power a subwoofer. As with all amplifier purchases we would normally  recommend you come into our store for a “Demo” of the options available to you as they vary greatly in quality and in power ratings which is often very confusing and this leads to you “Not Buying the right Amp for you”.

Audison VOCE

Four Channel Amplifier
Sometimes known as a multi-channel amplifier, a four channel has much more scope and can be used in many configurations.  It can be used to power your front and rear speakers, front speakers and a subwoofer, rear speakers and a subwoofer, 2 subwoofers, or you can use the entire amplifier to power the front component speakers in a mode called ‘active’ where you ignore the passive crossovers for the speakers and run each speaker off a seperate channel.  Running an active system can give you a better sound, but is a lot more difficult to get right and the set-up can take a lot of time to perfect. As with all amplifier purchases we would normally recommend you come into our store for a “Demo” of the options available to you as they vary greatly in quality and in power ratings which is often very confusing and this leads to you “Not Buying the right Amp for you”.

Five or Six Channel Amplifier
If you’re wanting a single amplifier that will power an entire system, then this type of amplifier is what you want.  Sometimes known as a ‘System Amplifier’ this type of amplifier usually has a front and rear section which is the same power, which you would use for front and rear speakers and then either a mono section (5 channel) or another pair of terminals (6HD900 5 channel) for a subwoofer.  As with all amplifier purchases we would normally recommend you come into our store for a “Demo” of the options available to you as they vary greatly in quality and in power ratings which is often very confusing and this leads to you “Not Buying the right Amp for you”.

Absolutely brilliant, outstanding service from advice on which alarm to have, very professional install and great introduction to the system when it’s fitted. I’d recommend these to anyone. Well done!

I recently visited Source Sounds to have a new security system fitted to my Land Rover Defender. They are 170 miles from where I live. The whole experience from the time I first made contact with them was superb, trouble free and a pleasure. Whilst there I also invested in a dash cam which they hard wired and fitted for me. Despite all of the work carried out, when I collected the vehicle there was no sign that anyone had interfered with vehicle, inside and out. Paul spent an hour plus with me on collection to explain the use of the items fitted. I was also assisted with hotel transport and securing my vehicle overnight. No wonder people travel miles to use their service. I won’t hesitate to use again.
