Product Description

Class D P5 Amplifiers: The XM-D400P5 amplifier is a 5-sided Class D mono block amp, designed to complement the Sony P5 subwoofer line. Class D technology is a method to convert and amplify music signals with MOSFETs to high-speed pulse signals. Class D amps feature high efficiency and low heat generation.

Protection Circuitry: This amplifier has 3-way protection circuitry which protects the amplifier in the following cases:

  • Thermal: shuts off the amp when the operating temperature is too high
  • Short circuit: shuts off the amp when the speaker outputs are short-circuited
  • DC Offset: shuts off the amp when the speaker wires or ground lead is not securely connected, generating direct current

Power/Protector LED: The amplifier has an LED on the top panel which glows green when operating normally, and changes to red when the protection circuit is activated.

Low-pass Crossover: The XM-D400P5 is equipped with a low-pass crossover, continuously variable from 50-300Hz, with a slope of 12dB/octave. It is constantly activated and cannot be switched off.

Low Boost: You can add up to 10dB of bass boost centered at 40Hz.

Preamp Output: This amplifier includes a stereo preamp output, which allows you to send an unfiltered signal to another amplifier.

Speaker-level Input Harness: The amp comes with a speaker-level input harness with a 4-pin Molex plug on one end. This allows you to more easily connect this amplifier to a factory radio or a receiver without preamp outputs.

Protection Cap: The XM-D400P5 comes with a rubber protection cap that fits over the wire terminal strip, helping to prevent accidental short circuiting.

Inputs and Outputs

Front Center of Amplifier:

  • +12V (power): screw terminal (terminal is 0.54" wide)
  • GND (ground): screw terminal (terminal is 0.54" wide)
  • REM (remote turn-on): screw terminal (terminal is 0.34" wide)
  • Speaker Outputs: 2 pairs of screw terminals (each terminal is 0.34" wide) Note: Although there are two sets of speaker terminals, they are not stereo outputs, but summed (L+R) mono. The speaker outputs are internally wired in parallel, so if you connect two 4-ohm speakers to the amp, the amplifier will "see" a 2-ohm load.

Front Right of Amplifier:

  • Line-In: RCA stereo jacks
  • Line-Out: RCA stereo jacks
  • High Level Input: a 4-pin input for use with the included speaker-level input harness


RMS Power Output:

  • 200 watts x 1 into 4 ohms (20Hz to 300Hz, 0.2% THD)
  • 400 watts x 1 into 2 ohms (20Hz to 300Hz, 0.6% THD)

Maximum Power Output:

  • 400 watts x 1 into 4 ohms
  • 800 watts x 1 into 2 ohms

Wiring Recommendation

Amplifier Wiring: This amplifier uses two 30-amp fuses, so its total fuse rating is 60 amps, however Sony recommends using an 80-amp fuse at the battery. The Streetwires 4-gauge amp wiring kits (items 211PS4B, 211PS4R, 211PS4BI, 211PS4RI and 211AK4) include an 80-amp fuse, which will accommodate the amp's fuse rating. Other 4-gauge amp wiring kits carried by Crutchfield include a 60-amp fuse. If you want to use a 4-gauge wiring kit that comes with a fuse rated for less than 80 amps, the fuse should be replaced with an 80-amp AGU fuse (item 211AGU80).
