The Fame MS 5002 Power Amplifier 2x 520W / 4 Ohm is an excellent amp for anyone looking for a great all-rounder. The predecessor models impressed with their longevity, efficiency and above all reliability, helping to make them true classics. The completely redeveloped bestseller power amplifier series consists of the MS 5002, 8002 and 12002.
Starting with the front, this Class-AB amplifier with its simple design makes the most important information clearly visible. On the left side are knobs to adjust the volume for every channel while 3 LEDs indicate the status of the output stage.
On the right side of the front panel you will find the On/Off switch. The series also offers circuits and mechanisms such as Soft Start, Short Circuit, Limiter, DC Fault, AC Line Fuse and Thermal Cut. Sufficient, together with the 2-phase fans, to make a safe and continuous operation in any location possible
In comparison with its predecessor, it is clear to see that the housing design was reduced to 2HU and thereby makes more space for additional equipment.
A Lo-Cut Filter is equipped and can be set to 120Hz or 90Hz – naturally it can also be bypassed. The middle switch allows you to select the Mode; Parallel, Stereo or Bridge mode, while the last switch controls the sensitivity of the signal.
The output of all three models is impressive, even the “smallest” amp delivers 2x520 Watt @4 Ohm or double output with 8 Ohm in Bridge mode. However, if you need even more power, the 8002 version delivers 2x820 Watt while the 12002 provides 1140 watt per channel – or double the power in bridge mode.
Even if this series isn’t the lightest on the market, it is still very portable and easy to install, so fixed installation isn’t necessary a requirement. The weight of individual power amps of each model are 13.8kg, 16.6kg and 19.1kg respectively.
