    How may watts is this thing pushing...

    Ok, I am getting 2 RE 12" subs in a 4 cuft ported box at 32hz (arriving next week!). I have a sony xplod (I know, I know, it *****) amp (4ch) currently pushing my 2 10" Kicker Comp VR's. I have it bridged at 2 ohms, how much power is this thing putting out?....Oh and yes it gets pretty hot, I am working on the cooling issue, I think I have it figured out right now, I have already PM'd req about it......

    Thanks

    -Ryan

    Just take off about 35% of there RMS power rating. Sony over rates there amps.

    With out the model number I couldn't tell you. And those power listing seem funny.

    Re: How may watts is this thing pushing...

    Its what the manual says, soo.....I was thinking of upgrading anyway, but I don't want to spend the money since I am a tight ***....But i was wondering If it was pushing around 150 since it is wired at 2ohm and bridged....

    take a look at profile amps... they put out some good wattage for the price.

    profile CL600 (150~200x2@2 i believe) will be just a little bit under perfect... but you can get them for like $70 NIB.
