    What does it mean when people say good "clean" power

    When some of you say if you want to run a Sundown sa12 with 1000rms, since they are only rated at 600rms, you have to make sure its "good clean power" what exactly do people mean by that? That the gains are set correctly?

    Pretty much. Set your gains with a DD1 if possible.
