The Zapco ASP-Q1 Analog, in-dash processor with a 9.5 volt line driver. It gives you 5 bands of parametric equalization and an active electronic crossover that can be configured as a 2-way system or a 3-way system. Zapco also offers analog processing in 2-way and 4-way crossovers, line drivers, and active OEM adapters.

This year we built an amplifier to set new sound quality standards for both home and car sound reproduction. The Z-Series AP amplifiers. The ultimate Competition SQ audiophile amplifiers designed by listening with ears and much as by measuring.

The Newest Z Series Competition ampliﬁers are the SP line, as in Super Power or Street Power. If you want competition level sound quality and want to blow the doors off at the same time, these are your amplifiers. Better efficiency, better power, and rock solid stability.

This year we stepped back and took a look at the amp that started it all. We saw that a lot of the non-critical parts from the LX and SP amps could used in the new Z-Series as well. Even with some of the SQ parts we save by buying more so we can use those in the Z-series also.

The ZX-Series tales all the sound quality of the Z-Series and adds high current power supplies to take you to new level of SQ power with 2,000 watts of class A/B punch, and up to 20,000 watts of Class D bass power. This is your amp if too much… is just not quite enough.
We give audio enthusiasts a new product that is both an accessory to the system and a tool for competitions. A low noise, high efficiency AC to DC power converter made to Zapco's standards to drive Zapco amplifiers (or other DC powered devices) from a standard 110V or 220V AC outlet.

Zapco Studio-D BT amps put big power in a small chassis. But these little beasts aren’t just small, and they aren’t just powerful. They sound great! The ST-DBT amps come in two sizes, two Mico chassis 4-channel units and three larger but still compact chassis; all with Bluetooth Streaming.

The Studio-X line of Amplifiers from Zapco was designed specifically for today’s car audio market. The Studio-X compact chassis makes it an easy fit in any car and even in motorcycle fairings. The square, low profile chassis also means it will be easy to trim out for a great looking installation so your system will look as awesome as it sounds.
ST-X DSP Series
ST-6X DSP Firmware: 6X Firmware Update (Jan,4 2020)
Could Zapco put it's 40-years of audio experience to work to develop an amp for every-day use? An amp that all can afford but that will stay true to the Zapco heritage for sound and reliability? Absolutely! We can and we have! The new ST-B amps are a testament to the fact that you can build a quality product with great sound in an amplifier for every day use.

Upgraded power supply, top end audiophile grade internal components, shortened signal path, custom built pots and more. Then we took out anything that wasn’t needed for sound quality (crossovers, tone controls, etc.) and redesigned the board and gave each LX amp its own numbered badge. They are built for the true audiophile.

The Z-Series of Zapco amplifiers is the result of our experience over the last 40 years with the technology of sound reproduction, combined with what we have learned in consultations with the home and car audiophile communities over the last few years about human perception of sound.
Today’s technology has allowed us to develop a line of great sounding full range Class D amps at an affordable price range and in a size that’s an easy fit in today’s smaller cars. Small car doesn’t have to mean small sound, and you won’t have to give up the back seat for an amplifier.

C2K Competition: The C2K Competition Series were produced from 2000 to 2007. They ruled both the SQ and the SPL lanes for years. There was even talk of making the C2K6.0 illegal for SPL because it was unfair competition.

The Reference series: Beginning with AG in '97 through the last Reference in 2007 the line was basically same. Small changes were made from year to year and some models in this manual weren't in the line in until 2002. Form, function, power, and model numbers were constant in all the AG/Reference amps.
