By including the coating and corrosion resistance, XC amplifiers can be mounted nearly anywhere on a boat, regardless of the environment.

On top of being extremely small and seriously well-built for marine applications, the XC line of amplifiers provide great power from 400 to 700 watts, and a solid audio experience at either 2 or 4 ohms.

The XC line of amplifiers are available in one, four, and five channel configurations.
