Hertz HCP 5D

EUROPEAN IN-CAR AMPLIFIER 2013-2014 - Hertz HCP 5D

HCP stands for Hertz Compact Power, which is exactly what this tiny performer delivers. The 5D suffix indicates the number of channels and explains how so much performance can be crammed into such a small chassis. The five class D channels deliver the performance of equivalent conventional AB amps but at a fraction of the size and with very low heat dissipation. Configuration flexibility is guaranteed by the highly versatile filter design, allowing fine-tuning for complex installations from the classic Front-Rear to more sophisticated Bi-Amping applications. The Hertz HCP 5D is well suited to the upgrade of factory systems, accepting high-level speaker inputs and featuring an auto turn-on function. Hertz delivers all of this from a package the size of a box of chocolates.
