Imagine the RAGE amps, with their features, performance and versatility. Their footprint is small for their performance, but can it be wrapped up in a slight different package? The RAGE MI, where the MI equals Mini does exactly that. Power, Performance, Perception & even smaller! It sounds too good to be true, but with a few redesigns we’ve made it possible.
Offering the exact same power as the RAGE 1200’s wouldn’t make any sence, so we dialled it back a bit. Not much though, the RAGE MI 1000.4 still offers an impressive true 4 x 175 W RMS @ 4 Ω. In dyno testing we were less than 6 % shy of that at 8 Ω! That goes to say these amps are beyond expectation.
The other RAGE MI offering is a 850 W mono and stable at 1 Ω. The same efficiency is clear here, 2 Ω dyno performace boasts more than 600 W. The near identical footprint of these 2 amps makes them perfect for sleek installs.
The MI mono took notice of its RAGE 1200 siblings high level feature. The high & low level inputs offers greater flexibility, especially in vehicles where no RCA outputs are present. Given the modest dimensions, the amp can be hid away nearly everywhere (9.5 x 4.9 x 2.2″ / 24 x 12.5 x 5.7 cm). There’s no excuses for having insufficent bass response anymore. Even with a small amount of space for an enclosure, our shallow mount woofer RIOT FL10 solves that.
The RAGE MI 850 has a fully featured 12 dB / octave crossover section with 10 Hz ~50 Hz adjustable subsonic, 35 Hz ~250 Hz lowpass & a fixed 0 ~12 dB boost level @ 45 Hz. We even managed to squeeze in an external bass level remote port.
Packing the panel
The 4 channels of the RAGE 1000.4 MI takes up the entire panel. We didnt narrow it down with fixed crossover points & only 1 crossover type per stereo channel. The amp has fully configurable high & low pass crossovers on all channels. With the 50 Hz ~5 KHz adjustable frequency range the amp is ideal for anything , midwoofers, midranges, even bullet tweeters! Seeking more? The bridged configuration has more than 500 W available per channel, equalling over 1000 W RMS in total! With lowpass crossovers set accordingly, this tiny amp can used as a pure sub amp, or even as a tri-mode, with loudspeakers on the unbridged channels (front) and a woofer on the bridged channel (rear).

*In order to get the full power output of the amplifier, it is crucial that your electical system is correctly (over) dimensioned. Failure to upgrading will constrain the power output & lower the efficiency. This can cause damage to the amplifier & void the warranty. Drivng the amplifier with ohm loads below of what is written in the manual is another void. Therefore take your time and read the manual thoroughly prior to installing! **Marine capable products are not to be subjected directly to water, but has the ability of being functional in humid conditions.
