    Was metered at 1325 watts at 2 ohm, since the amp isnt 1 ohm stable (according to Kevin at powerbass)

    I know these amps pretty well, I have two sitting in my garage.

    Re: powebass xa 1500.1

    I just sold my xa 1500 like a month ago and the guy at powerbass told me that it was 1 ohm stable. and supposedly the amp does about 1325 @1ohm according to powerbass tech support. I'd say around 1100-1200

    Re: powebass xa 1500.1

    I mean honestly the only kicker amp i've had was the zr360 and i sold the xa 1500 brand new i never got a chance to hook it up i had 1 before that and it played for about 15 mins before it shut off but it sounded very good for that 15 minute stretch. Turns out my alt wasnt givin me the juice so I sold the brand new one i had.
