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”.

Testimonials

Really happy with my service and my purchase. Christian and Paul were really honest and polite, and helped me make the right decision in regards to choosing to upgrade my sound system as opposed to replacing my faulty CD player like for like.

When I arrived back home after my short trip from Source to Donny today, I thought a short thank you email was in order. When I first sat behind the wheel and heard what a difference your adjustments had made, I was very pleased. I put Pink Floyds’ “Dark Side Of The Moon” in and set off for home. When I pulled onto my drive, I couldn’t get out of the car for 10 minutes because the CD hadn’t finished. It was stunning ! All the meticulous work you put into my install came together today and exceeded all my expectations. The sound stage is now immense, fills the front of the car and is fully balanced to my seating position. A great many thanks to you and all the team at Source Sounds, I wish you every success in the future.

Just would like to say a big thank you to Lee and all the team there for sorting my music system out in my car today. It was much appreciated that you managed to help me to pick a new cd player and install it and also the help after showing me how it all worked. Great service and help from all in the shop (know you were all rushed off ya feet) and still managed to help me out. Hope to see you all again when i’m ready for a new set of speakers for my ford probe. All the best
