You will get more power at lower ohms, the lower the ohms the less resistance it will have against the amplifier

heres a small definition if it helps

The ohm is defined as the electric resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of 1 volt, applied to these points, produces in the conductor a current of 1 ampere, the conductor not being the seat of any electromotive force.[

### I have a pioneer XL2-520 amplifier. I bought it used. So I didn't get the user manual and the sticker on the bottom of amp is not there.. So I was wondering how many watts (rms) in mono mode at 2ohms....

i think its a power acoustik amp im not sure that was a pioneer model. if it is apower acoustik the specs are

125 rms x 2 @ 4 ohms
150 rms x 2 @ 2 Ohms
300 rms x 1 @ 4 Ohms

You can only bridge the amp at 4 ohms dnt go lower than that

### Ok...im getting a speaker that has an 8 nominal load and 600W peak 400Wprogram and 200W RMS...two...what is RMS and what kind of amp do i need so that i dont get screwd over. thank you bunchesand also i...

RMs is the average power (really basically) > You need to get an amp that is around 150W - 180 WRMS. You need to be really specific about the rms. Dont let guys tell you 1000 W peak etc. Peak is term that can often have several meanings, but true RMS is the norm standard for assesing proper power in pro gear. Whatever you find check out the specs for yourself in writing!!!
Hope it helps

### I have 2 perfomance teknique 700wts and i dont know what kind of amplifier use

Hello perezmagdiel,

That 700 watts is maximum peak power, not RMS. If you're looking to not spend a lot of money for an amp, but want something that sends enough power to the Performance Teknique's, I'd recommend a 2-channel like the Boss Diablo D400.2. It's plently powerful enough and if you change out later, the amp can be bridged. And for inexpensive, it's got a lot of nice features, including a remote level control. It's 2ohm stable in stereo. Nice, for under \$70.

Hope this helps.

### I got a performance teknique power amp its 1700 rms at 1 ohm i need 1500 rms at a load of .67 will be ok

No, with 1700watts at 1 ohm the max current is 41 amperes, with 1500 at 0.67 the currents is almost 48 ampreres, you will be overdriving the amp at signal peaks.
