    DONT WASTE YOUR CASH ON THAT PILE!!!
    lol legacy is crap,s tay far away if you can afford something any better.....
    They claim 800 watts peak, but im willing to bet it'll give off like 200 RMS, at most, and it'll be dirty dirty power...
    that JBL 600 will rock those subs, might even be too much for em, wahts the RMS rating on them?

    the JBL will still overpower them by near 100 total watts, give em a 4 ohm load, and i think they will still hit pretty good...

    the JBL will give you at elast 300 to each sub more like 350 mebbe 400 they are slightly underrated, but perform well..
    whats the RMS rating on you sub?
    go as close to that as you can and you should be happy

    the rms is 200w peak is 600w... but ima run it in a tightly sealed box with less than 1cuft. per subs, so itll most likely be somewhere arond 250-300W rms... corect me if im wrong

    ahum

    Not to disrespect anybody or anything but I think the watt loads presented are crap...

    The legacy device has specifications that cant be realistic considered the price. The biggest amp I currently have is the pg octane which costed 2200 $ and has this specs

    4 ohm Mono - 400 x 1
    2 ohm Per Ch. 200 x 2 -
    4 ohm Per Ch. 100 x 2 -
    Frequency Response +/-1dB, 20Hz to 20 kHZ
    Signal to Noise Ratio (A-weighted) >100dB
    Max Continuous
    Bridged Power @ 1% THD 400 watts x 1 into
    4 ohms + 200 watts x 2 @ 14.4 Vdc
    Minimum Load when Bridged 2 Ohms
    Minimum Load per Channel 1 Ohm
    Input Signal Voltage Range 0.2 volts to 6 volts
    Crossover Type Cont. Variable Linkwitz Riley HP,LP
    Crossover Slope 24 dB per octave
    Crossover Frequency Range 40-800Hz
    Auxilary Output Channels yes
    Auxilary Output Frequency Range 40-800 hZ
    Hi-level Input no
    Bass Boost 0- to +18dB @ 45 hZ
    Power Supply Voltage 10Vdc to 15.5Vdc
    Recommended Fuse 60 amp
    Dimensions 31.0L x 12.9W x 2.5H

    If the specs would be true then the difference between the legacy and the octane wouldnt be a real lot however the price difference is 2100 bucks +

    kinda wicked if ya ask me



    Humanity my mirror,
    Madness what I see
