Signature Edition by Robert Zeff is our no compromise, high-power, audiophile amplifier designed and engineered by Robert Zeff and the staff at Nikola Engineering. This design is taken from Robert's many years of experience in both professional and the car audio industries where he used, repaired, and built high power, high fidelity amplifiers almost every day. With these lessons well learned over 30 years, he finally had the opportunity to make for ARC Audio the no compromise, no limits amplifier he had always dreamt of.

Signature Edition is a High Bias Class A/B amplifier. A simple Class B amplifier uses 2 output transistors to supply the current that moves the speaker. The positive transistor will push the woofer out and the negative will pull it back. In this design, only one transistor is working at any given time. It is the transition between positive and negative that leads to the higher distortion that makes a Class B amplifier unacceptable for audio reproduction. In most cases, a bias circuit is added to a Class B amplifier making it a Class A/B. The Bias circuit improves the distortion by turning on the unused output device while the current is flowing across the other. The more bias you add the lower the distortion, but there is a side effect. Heat is created as output transistors are on at the same time. The more bias you add the better it sounds.

More heat equals more bias until you reach the point of over bias and the amplifier fails. The trick to the Signature Edition Bias circuit is managing the bias current at any temperature. By carefully matching the bias of every amp we are able to maintain stable performance across a wide temperature range. This stability allows us to "dial-in" much more bias than any conventional class A/B amplifier. This is one of the key elements to the Signature Editions' amazingly transparent sound.

The key to running so much bias is heat management. Signature Edition has a unique heat sink design that uses a four-inch fan mounted in the center of the circuit board. The fan forces cool air in a cross-flow pattern through the massive finned heat sink before exhausting from the ends. This design minimizes the effects of installation location on the thermal performance of the amplifier. Mounted upside down, under or behind a seat or beneath a panel; Signature Edition will always perform as intended.

To further improve the dynamics and efficiency the Signature Edition amplifier exclusively use stiffly regulated, fully isolated power supplies. Regulation not only improves the damping factor and overall control of an amplifier but it eliminates any effect of voltage drops in the charging system may have.

One amplifier running an entire system without compromise to sound quality of overall performance? Yes, it's true! Robert Zeff has done it again with a single package solution designed to run your speakers and subwoofers from a single, compact amplifier.

The X2 850.5 is a compact and elegant design that is small enough to fit just about anywhere in a vehicle allowing you that personalized musical experience without the loss of valuable storage space.

Capable of delivering 85 watts to each of the four main channels, the X2 850.5 provides enough power and dynamics to satisfy most audio enthusiasts without straining or reaching the limits of the amplifier design. Old school "Grunt" but with next-century technology and miniaturization, this isn't your everyday Class-D amplifier.

Not a fan of the silver top cover finish and want the black hairline finish found on the X2  Amplifier Series? No problem. All Level 1 X2 amps can be upgraded with the Level 2 XDi cosmetic shroud kit. Simply purchase the XDi Trim Kit that suits your needs and drop it right on the X2 amplifier (Note that the XDi trim kits only come with the illuminated XDi badge. The X2 illuminated badge is not available at this time).
