  • Basic mono amp / watt question

    Ok, I have an amp that has the following specs:

    # PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
    # Peak Music Power: 800 Watts
    # Load Impedance Capability: 2~8 Ohm
    # Continuous Power (4 ohm): 250W x 1
    # Continuous Power (2 ohm): 360W x 1

    I want to hook up 2, 4 ohm subs (250 Watts Nominal Power Handling) so that effectively makes it a 2 ohm system.

    My question is this, with both subs connected to this amp and now 2 ohms, does that mean each sub is getting 360W or 180W?

    I know this is basic but I got 3 different answers!

    Thanks in advance

        Thanks man. I thought that was right but, believe it or not, a tech support guy actually told me I was wrong and said it was 360 to each.

        Thanks again....appreciate it
