Overview: Slash v3 Amplifiers

The Slash v3’s feature an all-black look that is pure, sexy evil, with significant changes under the hood as well.

The best-selling amplifiers of all time are back in black! Slash v3 amplifiers utilize a patented control circuit and our signature R.I.P.S. (intelligent power supply) design to ensure full power delivery over a wide range of load impedances and vehicle voltages. Highly advanced crossover filters and a full complement of signal processing features offer ultimate control and flexibility. Monoblock models also include a port for an optional Remote Level Control (RBC-1, sold separately). Our Advanced Rollback Thermal protection circuitry completely eliminates annoying thermal shutdown events. An all black look with powder-coated cast alloy heat sinks and end caps give Slash v3 amplifiers a clean, classic look. Return to Slash v3 amplifiers.
