Thread: amps wattage

  1. #11


    RMS DOES matter! Root Mean Square is a statistical measure of the magnitude of a varying quantity if your subs are 600 RMS a piece then you wouldnt not add them together the subs only see resistance (ohms). The real question is do you know if they are single voice coil or dual voice coil? If so what OHMs are the coils rated at? For instance if they are dual 4 ohm voice coils you could run them at 4 ohms mono or 1 ohms mono. When looking for an amp you want to make sure that at 4ohms at is at least 600 watts RMS or more and you would be fine. Also more power than the sub is rated at isn't necessarily a bad thing, the most common cause of a blown speaker or sub is under-powering. If you have any questions of the set-up let me know i can help with anything car audio related.
