    Icon14 Power house!!!

    Ok, here's the deal guys. You may or may not already know that my Eclipse DA7232 (2000 watts rms) arrived DOA. So anyway, while it is getting fixed I am pushing two 12" L7's in a ported box (refer to sig) with my PPI PC2150 (rated at 600 watts @ 4 ohms). Now according to Jmac's formula it is putting out somewhere near 1500 watts. Now I thought something can't be right cause thats way too much power. However, after listening to them tonight I believe its right, it is hitting freaking hard as helll!!!

    Some of you may know that since the major rule change in IASCA classes, amp design has gotten weaker while subs have gotten better. Back in the day classes were seperated by how much power you were running, not surface area of speakers. Therefore companies such as PPI underrated thier amps a great deal so thier equipment was always powering winning cars.

    This PPI I have is from a few years back when they were still good, and I swear to all of you this little 600 is wangin hard !!! I was worried it was going to be mediocre, and would just get me by. It is more than getting me by.

    I am glad I didn't sell it. Cause after tonight I never will.

    I should have just bought another one and run one per speaker.

    They are always on Ebay. If you want one of the best amps ever produced.....buy one. They sold for almost 800.00 bucks new and they are going for about 190.00 average price on Ebay.

    I almost forgot.....the DEQ-230 isn't hurting it much.
