The 6-channel XC6610 offers corrosion resistant ABYC compliant connectors and meets or exceeds ASTM D4329 for UV exposure. The new 4-channel micro-sized XC1410 is constructed from highly durable material and is one of the smallest 4 channel Class D amplifiers in the market. It is just one and a half times the width of a smartphone, which makes it ideal for Motorcycle and powersports applications.
