    Amp ?'s

    can someone estimate what my amp puts out it is a Crunch P4125 PowerZone 4ch 1000w Amp but when i got it it actually says on the box it is 500watt and i am going to wire it to two type R's will that make the dual voice coil subs down to 2.67 ohms or can you even wire that 4 channel amp below 4? so please just guess at what it puts out your best guess is better than mine. and please tell me how to wire the subs with dvc and what ohm it will be thank you for your time.

    well what kind of current is this thing pulling? simple voltage times current would give you your power.......but remember to take that number times .65 for its eff rating. ......

    It won't do that low of a load, it would probably push speakers fine, but thats it

    there is a way to get an 8 ohm load out of a single svc with dual 4 ohm coils i think, so if you could wire both to get an 8 ohm load then bridge them off of your amp you could then get a 4 ohm mono load. i wouldn't go lower than that. ask others to help out, i'm not quite sure how to do it.
