    How is this possible?

    These are specs I found for this MMATS amp below.

    M1400.1D/M1400.2D

    M1400.1 M1400.2

    STABLE TO: 1 ohm 2 ohm



    CONTINUOUS (RMS) POWER
    @ 13.8 Volts:


    Watts @ 1 ohms mono 1 X 1400 N/A
    Watts @ 2 ohms mono 1 X 750 1 X 1400

    Idle Current: 1.5 amp 1.5 amp
    Signal to Noise Ratio A-Wtd: <85dB <85dB
    Total Harmonic Distortion: 0.3% 0.3%
    Channel Separation: N/A N/A
    Input Sensitivity: 150mV-2.5V 150mV-2.5V
    Slew Rate: 13V / Usec 13V / Usec
    Fuse Rating: 80 amp 80 amp

    Dimensions:

    Height: 2.25 2.25
    Width: 9.5 9.5
    Length: 8 8

    General Information:

    Frequency Response: <10Hz to 275Hz
    Low-pass Filter: Variable 24db, 77 to 275Hz
    Battery Connectors: 2 Gauge
    Speaker Connectors: 8 Gauge

    Now I understand MMATS are very good amps, US Made underrated, blah blah.
    As far as I understand basic electric Volts x Amps = Watts...so this amp uses 80 amps for fuse rating. Constant voltage to the amp will prob be around 12-14 volts. no this gives us a maximum watts of between 960 and 1120 Watts,
    Soooooooooooo
    How come it is rated for 1400 Watts RMS?

    high voltage rails ma man. it raises the voltage internally to reduce the amperage draw. it works out.
