About the Alpine R-A60F

For loud and realistic-sounding music

Into Hi-Res music? Alpine's R-Series R-A60F amplifier reproduces high-frequency sounds up to 45,000 Hz, so you can enjoy the clean sound and enhanced realism you want in your music. Alpine applied some hot technology from their top-of-the-line X-Series amplifiers into this R-Series amp, including the use of high-efficiency transformers and premium custom capacitors in the amp's construction. Dual "Sierra" feedback circuitry decreases distortion by correcting the output using the original input signal. Even if you're playing CDs and standard-resolution music files, you can count on superior sound quality from this compact amp.

How much power?

The R-A60F 4-channel amp puts out 100 watts RMS per channel, perfectly matching the power ratings of Alpine's R-Series speakers. You can also use this versatile amp in 3-channel mode, driving a pair of speakers with the front channels, and bridging the rear channels to send up to 300 watts RMS to your sub. Advance Class D amp technology allows this amp to be built so small it'll fit in almost any of the tiny spaces available in many cars and trucks these days.

Tone control for all configurations

You can use the high-pass filters to remove the extreme low bass from your full-range speakers, so they'll play more efficiently. If you plan on running subwoofers with your R-A60F, you can adjust the low-pass filters to get just the right bass tone. Best of all, you can set up the filters for bandpass operation, so you can use this amp to power tweeters and midrange drivers, and use a separate amp, like the matching Alpine R-A75M, to power your sub.

This amp does not disappoint. I have corresponding type r component speakers and they both work well together. The sound quality is really good for the price range. I am pleased with this amplifier. Night and day difference from my old Kicker.

Features

Overview: The Alpine R-A60F 4-channel amplifier is effectively two full range 2-channel amps built into one chassis, labeled Channel 1/2 and Channel 3/4. Each section of the amp is bridgeable, so it can be wired as 4-channel, 3-channel, or 2-channel.

CTA-2006 Compliant: CTA-2006 is a system of testing and measurement for mobile audio amplifiers. This voluntary standard advocates a uniform method for measuring an amplifier's RMS power output and signal-to-noise ratio. The criteria for measuring amplifier power uses a DC input voltage of 14.4 volts and the RMS power output is measured over a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz (for full range amplifiers), with 1% or less Total Harmonic Distortion plus noise (THD+N). Signal-to-Noise ratio is measured in weighted absolute decibels (dBA) at a reference of 1 watt into 4 ohms. CTA-2006 standards allow consumers to compare car amplifiers and receivers under the same conditions (apples to apples).

CTA-2006 Specifications:

  • Power Output: 100 watts RMS x 4 into 4Ω
  • Signal to Noise Ratio: 85 dBA (measured at 1 watt into 4Ω)

Other Specifications:

  • Power Output:
    • 2Ω: 150 watts RMS x 4 (14.4 volts, ≤1.0% THD+N)
    • Bridged: 300 watts RMS x 2 (14.4 volts, 4Ω)
  • Signal to Noise Ratio: 98 dB (at rated power output, 4Ω)

Hi-Res Frequency Response: The Alpine R-A60F offers a wide frequency range for compatibility with Hi-Resolution Audio.

  • +0/-3 dB (1W into 4Ω): 10 Hz - 45 kHz
  • +0/-1 dB (1W into 4Ω): 20 Hz - 20 kHz

Controls

Gain Control: There are independent rotary gain controls for the two sections of the amplifier (Channel 1/2 and Channel 3/4). The amp will accept line level signals from 0.2 volts to 4.0 volts or speaker level signals from 0.5 volts to 10 volts.

Input Level: Set the input level switch to match the type of input signal used (Hi for speaker level and Lo for line level).

Input Channel: The Input Channel switch is set to 1/2 if you have a 2-channel input signal, and an identical signal is sent to channels 1/2 and channels 3/4. Set the switch to 3/4 if you have a 4-channel source.

Crossovers: Channels 1/2 and 3/4 have independent crossovers. Each crossover has a 4-position switch to direct how it operates and both crossovers have a slope of 12dB/octave.

  • Channel 1/2:
    • Off: output is full range
    • HP: High Pass; crossover point is adjustable from 50 Hz to 400 Hz
    • LP: Low Pass; crossover point is adjustable from 50 Hz to 400 Hz
    • HP-H: used when powering a pair of tweeters; crossover point is adjustable from 400 Hz to 6 kHz
  • Channel 3/4:
    • Off: output is full range
    • HP: High Pass; crossover point is adjustable from 50 Hz to 400 Hz
    • LP: Low Pass; crossover point is adjustable from 50 Hz to 400 Hz
    • BP: Band Pass; two crossover points are set, high pass is adjustable from 50 Hz to 400 Hz and the low pass is adjustable from 400 Hz to 6 kHz

Optional Remote Control: The amplifier has an RJ-25 jack for adding the optional RUX-KNOB.2 wired remote level control for adjusting the channel 3/4 output remotely. The remote has a 20dB adjustment range (-20 dB to 0 dB relative to the gain setting).

Connections

Terminal Layout: For wiring convenience, all of the amplifier's inputs and outputs are on one side.

Power/Ground: Two set-screw terminals connect the power and ground cables. The terminals accept up to 4-gauge wire (a 4-gauge wiring kit is recommended). The set screws are tightened/loosened with the included 3mm Allen wrench.

Remote Turn-on: The remote turn-on set screw terminal will accept up to 8-gauge wire. The set screw is tightened/loosened with the included 2mm Allen wrench.

Speaker Outputs: The four pair of speaker outputs' set-screw terminals will accept up to 8-gauge wire. The set screws are tightened/loosened with the included 2mm Allen wrench.

Signal Input: Two pair of RCA jacks, labeled Channel 1/2 and Channel 3/4, connect to line level or speaker level input signals. If connecting the source unit's speaker wire to the input jacks, use a Speaker-to-RCA adapter or splice speaker wire to an RCA plug. When using a speaker level input signal, it may not be necessary to connect a remote turn-on lead because of the amplifier's remote sensing function.

Fuses: The two 30-amp ATO fuses protect the amplifier. Another fuse (60-amp minimum) should be placed on the +12V power wire within 18" of the battery.

How to hock it with mono amp ?

There are also rca splitters that could work!
[ Kimberly  May 31, 2019 ]
A
I have the 4 channel not sure if there's an extra set of rca outputs to run another amp from it. If there's not you need a crossover or rca jacks from deck to add another amp!
[ Kimberly  May 31, 2019 ]
Q
I recently bought a pair of Alpine R-S65C and S-S50 speakers, and would the R-A60F Amp pair well with these even though both have different RMS watts?
[ Apinun  Mar 05, 2019 ]

A
Sure. You'll just need to be sure to set the gains correctly. When you do, you can realize the full potential both pairs without blowing out the 5.25". https://www.crutchfield.com/Learn/setting-amplifier-gain.html
