    MA Audio

    Hey guys, I just bought a MA Audio HK-397 amp to power my brothers Visonik V810D2. And in the manual it lists the power ratings as:

    Peak Power @ 4 ohms 600watts
    RMS Pwr per chanel@ 4 ohm 2x 150watts
    Rms Pwr per chanel@ 2 ohm 2x 250watts
    Rms Pwr mono @ 4 ohm 1 x 600 watts

    My question is, is it just me or are they listing the peak power the same as the mono rms rating? And this right from their manuals
    MA Audio HK-397

    Looks to be the same to me.

    Re: MA Audio

    so I am really wondering if one of them is wrong? How can the rms rating be the amps max rating as well?

    Re: MA Audio

    odd? I'd go with 500-600wrms.... maybe they dont want to be like everyone else and say something like 3000 peak watts? lol

    -oooh and btw, those subs can handle a touch more power than 600w
