        probably not much, subwoofer design has come along ways since the 90s (ithink that is from around that time). think about how a 10" sub used to require at least 1 cu/ft of air space..... now there are 12"s that will pound in half that volume.

          if it says 1000W you might as well assume it is peak.

              Plug it into 120AC and see how long it'll last!

                Now that I think of it, that "NT" means it is part of "Ntense" series of Orion stuff, which was their low-end line. It's not worth much, especially considering it's a 15 and probably takes 4 cubic feet to work within its specs.
