CES 2012 – 12,000 Watt Car Audio Amp

The Cadence ZA12KW is a big 12,000 watt audio amp. Yes, you read that right: 12,000 Watts! Now you might wonder what kind of speaker needs 12,000 watts to run? Cadence has the answer. The Cadence DCX34W is a 34-Inch Dual 2 Ohm Subwoofer. It weighs over 250 pounds and can play down to a “you are going to die” 12Hz.

Installation requires the beefing up the car’s structure because the amp and woofer can play loud enough to blow out the windshield (and you with it). What kind of person would put this in his car? My guess would be someone who believes that more is better and overkill is not enough. That, and someone who doesn’t care about his hearing.
