JBL MS-A5001 500 Watt x 1-Channel Subwoofer-Amplifier

60 Watt Amplifier With 4-CHANNEL Mixer

JBL’s stylish MS Series “Tiny” amps measure only 7″ by 8″ so you can tuck one into virtually any hiding place that has adequate ventilation. Or you can mount one in a prominent spot to show off the bright digital display with its tone and gain settings. These unique amps come with a setup CD and include built-in indicators that help you set the input level perfectly. They also feature preamp and speaker-level inputs so you can hook them up to almost any system.

Power and Flexibility

There’s nothing like a subwoofer or two for adding major bass kick to any factory sound system. The JBL MS-A5001 is a compact amplifier with 500 watts of power and dual outputs to connect up to two subwoofers in parallel. It accepts any analog line-level or speaker-level output, and features onboard setup tools for easy, foolproof installation. A digital input mixer lets you map either input to either output, and sophisticated network circuitry puts you in precise control of the crossover points and slopes. Serious bass is an essential element of any great car audio system, and the MS-A5001 will power it with easy precision.

JBL Brand
For more than 60 years, JBL has been delivering world-class listening experiences wherever great sound matters.

Why JBL Sound?

We didn’t invent car audio, but we did reinvent the way you upgrade your car audio system. When Hollywood made a long-term commitment to cinema sound in 1927 with the film The Jazz Singer, JBL sound was there. When Jimi Hendrix electrified the stage at Woodstock in 1969, JBL sound was there. For more than 60 years, JBL products have been bringing home the impact and excitement of the world’s best recording studios, movie theaters, and concert venues. For years, JBL engineers have been creating these world-class listening experiences in the car. Thanks to advanced technology developed in the professional arena, JBL mobile products simply sound better than the competitions’. High output, easy setup, and complete connectivity are all things you can expect from any amplifier that wears the JBL badge. And now JBL engineers have completely revolutionized amplifiers with the incredibly flexible MS amplifiers.

The MS-A5001′s sleek, slim design allows it to be installed nearly anywhere.

Powerful Punch

The new JBL MS-A5001 mono subwoofer amplifier delivers all the power that you need to add that extra low-end punch to your system. The Class-D MS-A5001 puts out an amazing 500 watts X 1 (into 2 ohms or 4 ohms)–all in a sleek, small design that you can tuck away nearly anywhere.

Flexible Connectivity

JBL engineers have designed the MS-A5001 to offer flexible connectivity no matter how you plan to build the amplifier into your system.

High-Quality Speaker Outputs

The MS-A5001 features high-quality speaker outputs that offer the use of up to 10AWG wire. This ensures minimal power loss for the most output possible. Want to use more than one subwoofer? No problem. The MS-A5001 actually has dual speaker outputs so you can run two subwoofers in parallel, and with its 500-watt output, you’ll have more than enough power for a system to rattle your trunk.

The MS-A5001 is easy to install and maximizes performance with high-quality connections.

A unique graphical display makes setup and optimization simple.

The optional wireless bass control makes adjusting bass on the fly easy and is simple to install.

Connects to Any Analog Signal

To make installation into nearly any system a breeze, the MS-A5001 comes with RCA to bare-wire adapters that work with all line-level and speaker-level inputs. This means installation is easy and performance is maximized with no drop in signal. A simple switch allows you to match the input to the signal type, and with the Hi2 setting, it can even be used in conjunction with a factory amplifier. And since the MS-A1004 has a digital input mixer that allows any input signal to be routed to any speaker output, installation is simplified even further. We’ve made it easy.

Pass-Through Audio Outputs

Building the system of your dreams? The pass-through audio outputs on the MS-A5001 allow you to use multiple amplifiers with a signal source.

Graphical Setup and Status Display

Unlike the typical car amplifier, the MS-A5001 has a graphical display on the top of the amplifier. This display simplifies setup with icons of the crossover types and a readout of the crossover frequencies. An easy-to-use rotary control lets you dial in the setup precisely. Plus the sophisticated design makes the amplifier look great.

Advanced Circuitry

Sophisticated Crossover Functionality

The MS-A5001 offers unprecedented crossover control and functionality. Outputs can be set to low-pass, high-pass, or even band-pass filtered. And with 97 different crossover points from 20Hz to 140Hz, along with selectable slopes (6dB, 12dB, or 24dB), you can precisely tune your amplifier for any subwoofer you may use.

Digital Signal Processing

At the heart of the MS-A5001 is advanced digital signal processing, which controls the input mixer, electronic crossovers, and all output-level functions. Paired with precise user-selectable band filters, crossover points, and crossover slopes, the DSP optimizes sound quality for the subwoofer(s) you happen to be using while minimizing artifacts. In fact, the MS-A5001 even comes with an input-level CD to make precise tuning and optimization a snap. Getting the best sound out of your system couldn’t be easier.

Complete Control

Wireless Bass Control Compatibility

If you really want to fine-tune your system on the fly, the MS-A5001 is compatible with the JBL MS-WBC wireless bass control knob (sold separately). It gives you control of your bass from the driver’s seat without having to run any additional wires.
