    JBL's 80.4 amps produce 80 X 4 (dunno if that's 4 or 2 ohms)



    Team Caraudio

    Sony C90, 210 EQ
    Seas 27TDF/C, RE XXX 6.5, custom xo (dyn 240GT sitting idle)
    RF 60.2 amp
    eD A15.22
    Soundstream picasso 1400.1D

    Bass drive-by's are uncool.

    If the gains are set accordingly realistically you could run 100x4 RMS and still get a clean signal without distorting the speakers. You would just have to know when to stop on the volume control.. Most people blow speakers by not using a big enough amp and driving to clipping.

    yea, the USX 4080 would be a pretty good match if you turned the gains down a tad.
