Re: Will this amp 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.

Hi my name is David i have a 900 watt punch amp in

Hi, If you mean clipping on/off to be cutting out, then there are a few causes for this.
1) overloading the output circuits.
2) speaker wires shorting to earth/each other.

Try running 1 set of speakers at a time.

P.S. giving us a little more information will help profusely i.e amplifier capabilities, how you have the speakers connected. etc.

I have a lanzar opti drive plus 500 old school,i have 2 12'' 1200 watt pyles,running in parallel at 2 ohm. when i bridge it at 2 ohm 1000 watts it blew my 40 amp in line fuse.

The 40 amp fuse is too small. 1000 watts = 12 volts @ 83 AMPS. Bigger power wire my friend. If you want to sell, let me know.

Amp burned out but fuses still good?

this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....

Can a rf 201s amp push 4-6x9s and 4-104s door speakers

Hello jon_jonmay,

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.

Hope this helps.

High distortion

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.

1000 watt amp sony xplod

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.
