    PG Xenon 600.1

    i own this amp and a dual 2 ohm sub. are there any benefits to give the amp a 4ohm load rather than a 1ohm load.

    Re: PG Xenon 600.1

    I remember correctly xenons would put out the same amount of power in 1 ohm as it would at 4 ohm, so running it at 4 ohm would be the best since you won't get any more power out of it.



    Turn my volume under ten, to keep my speakers from busin'.

    x2 The xenons love running at 4 ohms.

    It is rated the same at 1-4, but it will put out more power at 4 ohms.

    4 ohms will be best for that amp. It will however, put out more power the lower the impeadence. Even though it has the Xe.Load, a benched 600.1 did 617 w @ 4 ohms, and 712w @ 2 ohms. 1 ohm was not tested. It would benifit you (and your amp) better to go 4 ohm.

    Re: PG Xenon 600.1

    My bad.

    I just looked up the bench results and I hate it when I'm wrong.

    Thanks smgreen20.

    615.2 @ 4 ohms
    722.5 @ 2 ohms
    I don't know what the 1 ohm power is.

    I thought that it lost a lot of efficiency at 1 ohm though.

    Why am I posting on Christmas eve? Santa is almost here!

    Alls cool. That's the CA&E review #s right? I know of someone else who benched their own, those where the #s I put.

    It was the Aug/Sept Mobile Entertainment magazine review that I was using for reference.
