Loading Please Wait...


Description:
The Kappa 255a is a member of Infinity's Kappa series of mobile power amplifiers. Housed within the sleek, extruded aluminum frame, you'll find five channels of amplification; four for full-range, midrange, or high-frequency reproduction and a 200 watt class-D channel to efficiently power a subwoofer. This unique ""hybrid"" amplifier features a flexible integrated crossover so you can easily configure the Kappa 255a for a front, rear, and constant bass system, or for a three-way system with midbass or tweeters.

Review 2 of 3 , from Eagan

Price Paid:  $250.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
 Kappa 255a

Strengths:
high power, flexible on the rca cables(has a option to run a bi-amped component set, the front channels to tweeters and rear to mids, and the crossover automaticly takes the mid range from the front channels and sends it to the back, no need for 6 rca cables)

Weaknesses:
the bi-amped component option does have a bug, it sometimes shorts and causes the amp to send alot of feedback to your head unit, and in about 2 days it will destroy your head units amp/preamp outputs. after this happens you need to fork out over 200$ to get the amp and your cd player fixed(ive had both my 255as do this, and they blew out my 800$ minidisc recording headunit, headunit was under warrenty still amps cost me 130$ each to have fixed)

Summary:
Great amp, ive got 2 of them, they look cool and power anything, ive repainted mine charcoal grey and they look even better.
