The Ultra X-Connect 400watt...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, this was my 3rd PSU.

Bought it to power my 6800nu back in the day. But then i got my new 8800, so i got a new PSU.

I am now using this PSU to power my rooms sound system. The ratings on this PSU are as follows:

All ratings are "MAX" ratings, not continous:

+3.3vDC 30A )
240watt )
+5vDC 32A )
380watt )

+12vDC 16A ) 192watt )
400watt


-12vDC 0.8A ) 9.6watt )

-5vDC 0.3A ) 1.5watt ) 20watt )

+5vSB 2.0A ) 10watt )


I hope you guys can read that good. But anyway.

The amp is now being used to power 2 car audio amplifiers:

Sony Xplod 165watts RMS x2 @4ohms (60amps)

HiFonics BXi1206D 1200watts RMS x 1 @1ohm (running at 450watts RMS @4ohms) (80amps)

The PSU can fully power my Sony Xplod with no problem, none whats so ever. It has never failed, or even came close.

I just now hooked the second amp up, so the PSU is now powering 2 amplifiers alone!!

If i ran full gain that would pull near 140amps!

Iv ran 5hz test tones with the HiFonics amp on full gain half bass boost and it did just fine.

I havent run it with both amps at full gain yet, but its running 100% stable at half gain on both amp and sounds awsome!


Bottom line, i never expected this cheap $70 PSU to be able to power amps so good. I figured my Sony amp woulda burned it up, as that amp burned up 2 previous PSU, a cheap 300watt PSU and a high dollor 450watt PSU by Thermaltake!

Amazing PSU. Here are some pics of the setup:




I give this PSU 5 stars for reliability!!

Well, sadly i dont have a multi-meter

But i havent notice any problem, SQ is great at high volumes, PSU does get warm, but not as hot as the one in my PC.

And a plus is its all chromed out and shiny

Im soon making a video on youtube with both amps.

Here is a video of the performance at the highest volumes before distortion.

It literally sounds amazing, id pick this over a true 7.1 surround, cuz this blows our home theater away.

If anyone is thinkin of runnin car amps in your house, i fully recommend buying this PSU to power them, its cheap and 100% reliable.
