    Question about resistance

    If I have a choice of two amps, both give 500 watts, but one gives that power at 1 ohm and the other gives it at 4 ohm, is there any difference??

    Like, does the one w/ lower resistance stress the alternator more, or anything like that??

    The lower ohm level could cause more current draw, it depends on how effecient the amp is.

    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.
