    Audiopipe APSM1500 Question

    I have looked online after being referred by a member who seems very knowledgable about the subject, I have seen that the RMS on the APSM1500 at 1ohm is 1500, but how can the max be 1500 too? I always thought it would be better to get an amp that goes higher max than rms, am I wrong?

    Max ratings are total BS. The amp puts out a legit 1500w according to some clamp tests

    max or peak power is an arbitrary number created by marketers to trick noobs into buying low level products.

    Max power doesn't mean a **** thing. RMS is the only number you need to concern yourself with.
