    2250w WAAAY to much for two 500wRMS subs?

    contemplating buying this planet audio amp, need something to power my eclipse's. and also, this amp leaves room for an upgrade. if i keep the gain WAAAAAY down, should i be ok? and im only running 4GA ATM. is this ok for now? or do i need a bigger GA wire?

    why not just leave the gain where it is and change the ohm load?

    Re: 2250w WAAAY to much for two 500wRMS subs?

    well the output is 800w @ 4ohms. i would like them to see atleast 1,100 watts. which leaves me with wiring it to 1ohm.

    More power is better, keep the gain low and you'll be fine
