    Ppi pc21400.2

    I was wondering if anyone bench tested this amp before i know its 1400 x 1 @ 4ohms at 12 volts though, i just wanted to see what people were pulling with it at 14. im going to have it hooked up to a sundown nightshade 15 v1, or will it sound better on my re mx15? their both 2 ohm dvc so ill be runnin at 4 ohms.

    No bench results but what i've been told by lots of people is the old PPI amps are spot on ratings. No less , not much more.

    Re: Ppi pc21400.2

    The board has striking similarities with my A1200, but I shouldn't be surprised of that. I would assume that it at least does its rated power output. PPI amps aren't usually as underrated as people say, just like o/s SS Rubicon/Reference amps. That doesn't mean they're bad by any means, just that they were honest ratings.

    Same amps (complete line , not just the 1400 watt amp) different color and i do believe the newer variety has some improvements to the heatsink design but i'm not positive.

    Re: Ppi pc21400.2

    Best thing about those old PPI amps is they make the power they say they will...and do it at lower input voltage. Probably only under-rated by 10%-12%.
    Worst thing about those PC series amps is the heatsink design. The fan helps but, heat dissipation is not very efficent.



    Absolutely State of the Art!

    I used an O-scope to set the gains on my pc21400.2..And at 4 ohms bridged it was putting out 1950-2000 clean watts..That was with a nice unclipped sine wave..These amps are very power hungry though..Better have an extra battery or 2..

    I'd love to find those ratings for this amp.
