    ssa icon 10" rms

    what is its true RMS? i know its rated at 900 rms, but i was wondering if the 10" can take about 1000+ RMS.

    Again, the test mule is my 2004 Silverado extended cab. Power will again be supplied by a Memphis Memphis Belle, MCH1300, at 1ohm nominal. Roughly 1100wrms, with the gains set with an o-scope to just clipping. Electrical is the big three in 1/0, a yellow top under the hood, and 1/0 Memphis wire throughout. Source unit is a Clarion DXZ955MC with HPF at 120hz and LPF set to 80hz. The enclosures used are a 1.25ft^3 net sealed affair and a down firing 2.0ft^3 ported box with a 4” port tuned to 34hz.

    ^^^ theres a review, and looks like it can take it....CLEAN power, no clipping

    They are ratted conservative for a few reasons. But if you can power them with a clean unclipped 1000-1200 they should be fine. That much power is not needed for most needs honestly. Keep in mind burned up coils are not covered by warranty.

    What would be the point in sending it more power than rated? You probably wont even hear the difference from 900-1200.

    That is also part of the reason for a conservative ratting.
