Focal FPS 2300RX Amplifier
Focal already has a well-deserved reputation for producing only top-quality products, so the inclusion of a 2-channel Focal amplifier as a 'high-end' pick should be expected. This rather serious-looking 2-channel amplifier pumps out a stout 155 watts RMS through 2 channels when connected to 4-ohm impedance speakers, with output rising to 265 watts RMS with 2-ohm impedance drivers. Bridging the connections will net 530 watts RMS at 4 ohms and 750 watts RMS at 2 ohms - more than enough to extract heavy bass from a suitable subwoofer. The chunky cooling fins and active fan cooling ensure that the amplifier stays cool, and the FPS 2300RX supports Focal's 'High Cap' plug-in capacitors if more power is needed for heavier hits. As well, the FPS 2300RX carries Focal's traditional high price tag, so consider this amplifier only if you're building a true audiophile-grade sound system in your car.
