    1 ohm if you want all 1500 watts.
    1ohm vs 4ohm, heat and power

    run it at 1. I mean you're basically wasting power running at 4ohms. Use your amp to its max potential

    thats what i thought, but i figured there would have to be some advantage to running it at 4, or else every amp would b 1 ohm stable, but i guess from what u guys r all saying, 1 ohm is def. the way to go

    It's just harder to make a reliable 1 ohm stable amp than a 4 ohm one



    Caraudio.com - Where the average member couldn't wire a SPST toggle if they had to.


    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.
