    kicker zx 1000.1 confusion what does the certified power sheet mean

    i recently bought a kicker zx1000.1 amp.
    the certified power sheet states that " total maximumpower output (watts) 1311".
    i always thought that RMS is about half of the total power of an amp. i assumed that max power for this amp would be 2000
    this is supposed to be a 1000 rms @ 2ohm amp
    what does this mean for the 500 rms @ 4ohm.

    i would like to know what is my amp really putting out? how much is this amp putting out at 4 OHM? how high is this amp?
    im running a huge 0 gauge power wire [and ground] for this amp and its looking like i made a mistake with this amp. the JL audio G-MAX runs higher rms with only a 4 gauge wire

    kickers dont rate their amps like little bittches.
    it will put out 1311 RMS. not max watt shiitt.

    1000 rms is what the amp is rated at @2 ohms. The 1311 watts is what Kicker tested the amp at @ 14.4 volts.

    Kicker amps put out the power they say, plus some as you've seen. Its a 1000.1 so youd expect 1000 watts, but it will actually put out the 1300 RMS not max that the birth sheet states.

    Using 0 gauge is good for 1000+ watts, its always better to be safe then sorry. As for @ 4Ohms, I would think it would do around 650-750 watts.
