Sufficient power to revs?

Recommended Posts

aquaman

I have two channels open on a 2007ish Rockford power 800/4. The other two are dedicated to subs. If I bridge two channels and run in parallel, would I have sufficient power to run a pair of rev 8 or 10s? I read that that power amp produces about 50% more power than actually rated too.

Thanks!

Wiring two 4 ohm speakers in parallel = a 2 ohm load at the amp. 1st question, is that amp 2 ohm stable in bridge mode? What is that amp's 4 ohm x 4 RMS?

Yes, stable at 1 ohm. 200x2 @ 4ohms. 125x4 at 4ohms. 400x2 @2ohms. I have 3 boston g5 12's on the other two channels and they don't even struggle with them. The birth sheet also says 1252 total rms x1 @ 1ohm and 752 total rms x2 @2 ohms.

I also have a arc audio line driver which boosts my RCA voltage and a ws 420 eq. 4 of my 5 amps gains are set to 1 and the arc 600/2 which powers my 4 rev 10's is set a little past half on the gain.
