    1200 watt sony xplod amp

    i have a sony xplod amp does 500rms bridged at 4ohms or 200x2 at 4 ohms or 250x2 at 2ohms

    i have it bridged at 4ohms running a kicker l7 12" and i seen my gains should be reading at 44volts

    whats the highest i should go so i get the most out of the amp but dont clip and blow the sub

    is the 500watts at 4ohms equals 44volts is that rms or peak

    because my gain isnt even halfway i thought my amp could do more than that

    the 44vac if calculated correctly would give you the amps rms.....to know if it is clipping or if the amp can put out more rms without clipping, you would need an o-scope

    any clipping is no good....you should run the amp just below clipping to get the most!

    if it clips at 500 then you should run ~475

    let me look up an o-scope
