    because if the amp is "stable" to .5, doesn't mean that 1ohm will be half, and likely where the efficiency will jump. if that 3400@.5 obnly does 1700-1800, then yes, but i doubt it. if you get the 2 amps at 1ohm, even if they can be run for 20-25% more juice at .5, then you are still better off with efficiency (less loss through heat and break-down of signal under extreme load, etc) running them at 1 ohm(2ohm strapped)



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    ok, kew. i will prob end up testing both ways, but i will for sure be looking to get 2 amps to strap together at 2 ohms then. i just wanted to know if it would benefit my electrical any.

    Yes I believe so. Might want to double check with another member however.
