Re: 1986 ACA Alertronic 6000R

Tue May 28, 2024 2:09 pm

One thing I've been wondering is the ASC 400W amp and how its interfaced with the other 200W amps in the box.

Are those ASC amps just two-200W amps fused together in one box ala the Federal A100 found in the MCP or are they a full 400W amp? If its a full 400W, did you have any issues with powering it and interfacing it with the other 200W units? I own that I'm not an expert so it may be a dumb question but I wanted to learn a little bit here. FWIW, I'm guessing its a 2x200W based on how its wired.

Thanks!

As far as I know about them, they're two 200W amps in one box. They wire up the same and use the same harness/connector as a 200W amplifier.

It did amazing during sirencon this year. I was there the evening before when it arrived and my dad said it was like Elvis had arrived 🤣

I also saw it on the highway and I waved and gave a thumbs up at your car, since I wanted to say “Oi! Nice job with the siren!”
