    will i notice a difference?

    would i really notice that much of a difference if i fed my 2 12" sd2.5s 1500-1800 watts opposed to 1400 or would it not really even make that much of a difference?

    10*log(1500/1400) = .299db

    10*log(1800/1400) = 1.09db

    Those are theoretical, but maximum difference that would be attained by increasing power.

    So the difference between 1400w and 1500w is completely inaudible.

    The difference between 1800w & 1400w might be barely noticeable at best. Once you factor in power compression and such chances are very good that you again would not hear a difference.

    Re: will i notice a difference?

    how much of a difference do you think changing my amp from the 2-channel A/B amp i have now(giving my 2 4ohm 12" kickercvr's 380rms bridged @ 4ohms) to a class D mono rated at 1000rms @1ohm

    i'm really contemplating getting a mono like i should have done in the 1st place--my current amp gives the breathtaking effect after i turn the HU ALL THE WAY UP with bass at +1 and 50hz at +2...

    I just want to know if i will be able to tell a $200+ difference in sound if i give my subs their rated 800rms instead of just 380rms??

    wow, im glad someone else knows that dB's are based on logarithms

    Just do some more math, the equation has been handed to you already

    10*log(800/380) = 3.233 dB

    That is definitely an audible difference. Not a huge one, but you will be able to tell. Plus you won't be pushing your amp as hard so you will get cleaner power. Your subs may handle a little more too since it won't be distorted at all. Worth it in my opinion.
