Sonic Impact 5065 Gen 2 T-Amp Review

I recently used the Sonic Impact 5065 Gen 2 T-Amp to power two 30 watt 6 1/2” Dayton Audio in-ceiling speakers with great success.  In a 25 ft x 25 ft two story room the music was much louder than I had anticipated it was going to be & way beyond the sound level that the music will normally play at considering that this is only a 10 watt stereo amp on 8 ohm speakers even after running 40 ft of 14 guage wire. After lots of research this turned out to be a really exceptional “green” way to amplify  room speakers without using a high power receiver or amp.  I hooked an Ipod straight into the T-Amp and it sounds expansive. This little amplifier is much  more than a computer speaker amp.  My only complaint would be that it was a little difficult to fit 14 gauge wire into the plastic posts.  Now I'm thinking of excuses to get another one.

Sonic Impact has redesigned the wildly successful T-Amp from the ground up. The Gen 2 T-Amp features the same sound quality that made the original T-Amp famous, as well as the ability to operate off of 8 AA batteries. If you need a permanent power solution for computer or high-efficiency speakers, look no further. New for the Gen 2 T-Amp is a regulated, 12 VDC switching power supply rated at 3 amps output. Also included is a stereo 3.5 mm input port for iPods® or MP3 players, a stereo 3.5 mm plug to stereo RCA jack adapter, and a six foot stereo 3.5 mm plug to stereo RCA plug cable.

Specifications: *Power output: 2 x 9 watts (4 ohms @ 0.04% THD + N), 2 x 15 watts (4 ohms @ 10% THD + N), 2 x 10 watts (8 ohms @ 10% THD+N) *Efficiency: Up to 88% *Signal to noise ratio: 102 dB *Dimensions: 1.18" H x 6" W x 5.5" D.
