    Icon14 Nitro Amp

    The new nitro amp I got today can produce 350 watts bridged for one channel.

    Is that to much for my polk momo 10 inch sub going over the rms by 50 or will it be good to go.

    Re: Nitro Amp

    It is all in the tuning! I have a 1000 watt RMS amp going to a sub that can only handle 600 watts RMS. I tuned it with a dmm and a resistive load to give me 600 watts RMS @ 75% volume with a 50Hz test tone. My subwoofer is still alive and kicking

    350 to a quality 300w sub isn't a concern at all UNLESS...
    You run at or near full volume a lot with a lot of bass heavy music,
    OR you set the gain agressively.

    good sub, it will handle that amp fine imo. that amp would be lucky to give you 300w. fused at 25 amps.

    Good catch.... 25 amps on class A/B won't be much. I could have sworn the specs said 40 amps for the OP's particular amp.

    I do have a Linear Power amp that has a 25 amp fuse that produces between 600 and 700 watts RMS before clipping @ 8 ohms mono. Before you call BS, I need to let you know that it has the TIPS high voltage mod

    Re: Nitro Amp

    A general indicator of how many watts a given power amplifier will put out is its fuse rating multiplied times 10. Since the amp you purchased only has a 25 amp fuse, multiply that by 10, and you have 250 watts.

    Keep in mind, that is just a general indicator.... Some amplifiers will produce more power with 25 amps of fusing, like my Linear Power and others will produce less.



    Goodbye pudknockers.
