I have two 6.5 door speakers(480 watts each) and two 6x9 speakers(800 watts each). My friend wants to sell me his audiobahn a4401q amp. I'm not too familar with this amplifier. How many watts does it have and would it be able to push my speakers?
Whoa, I do belive your rating for your speakers are inflated. I have never heard of a 6X9 accepting 800 watts thats just rediculas, its more than my 12" sub needs.
Anyways, if this amp is anywhere from 300 to 500 RMS watts you will be fine. Because the speakers are small they need very little wattage to reach there potential, usually less than 100 Watts each, and probably around 50. If you think about it most decks put out 50Watts max for each channel, because that is the max you can assume that the RMS wattage of the unit is only around 20-25 Watts of power per speaker.

These speakers are 6 OHMS, that means you can only use an amp that is rated for 6 ohms. The original amp put out 20 watts (rms). Any amp rated above 25 watts per channel could do serious damage to the speakers if turned up to the highest levels.
Look, if the amp is 1500watts mono, then you have the capability to run a sub up to the full 1500watts, but i see on the specs for this amp that it has output for 2 speakers, which means up to 750watts each speaker. That's more than enough to power your L7's. They're trying to sell you something you don't really need in my opinion. Hope this helps.
it is .5 ohm stable but will heat up in .5 ohm so make shure there is lots of ventilation at 1 ohm it will not heat up very much but will still need venting they really kick and control the speaker very well (no or little distortion ) even in low ohms you will need lots of current for them in single channel mode at 4 ohm its 120w 2 ohm its 240 and 1 ohm its 480 and .5 its just under a kilo watt at .5 you will need 40amps of current i have 6 of these amps as a system and i am upgrading to mcintosh amps as there are few amps better than the hk ca 260s you will love this amp
What is happening is that your amp can deliver 1500 Watts at a given impedance. The Sub PROBABLY is a higher impedance. Your amp runs out of voltage due to the speaker impedance, hence it "flat tops" or clips.
You will probably find the sub is 8 ohms and your amp might deliver 1500 Watts on a 2 ohm system (this is "specsmanship" to sell their product... more is better thing...
If your amp was as above, the max voltage output would be the same before clipping but with the resistance 4 times, the current is only one fourth that which would deliver 1500 Watts. So you would only get 1500/4 Watts into the speaker or about 375 Watts.
It can but it'd be a waste for your subs. 1 of those by itself will handle that amp. it'll push them just not really hard, i'd recommend an upgrade to a 1100-1200 watt rms amp if you're gonna run 2 cvx's. if you only run one sub that amp'll work well...
Wiring 4 speakers to each of 2 channels, you will need to wire them series-parallel and run them at 4 ohms. If you wire all 4 parallel, the load will be 1 ohm and the amp is only stable down to 2 ohms.
According to your manual, the 201s will deliver 50 watts into each channel at 4 ohms . So it will be supplying about 12.5 watts per speaker which is about what you get with the average factory radio. They will work OK, but they're not going to be very loud.
The head unit may be rated at 200 watts but it cannot produce more than ~20 watts of real power per channel. There's no way that it can drive the high end speakers to a level that will be needed to compete with the subs on a 1000 watt amplifier.
That's not a 1000w amp. It's a 400 watt amp when loaded to it's lowest rated load. If you have one speaker per channel (the only safe load if you have single 4 ohm coil speakers), you're only getting 165 watts/speaker. It's probably distorted because you're driving it to clipping.
