Question about Kicker ZX400.1 Car Audio Amplifier
I read that mono block amps give you equal power power no matter how many subs you have them hooked to. I have 2 12 inch 4 ohm subs rated for 380 wats per sub will this give me 200 wats per sub or 400. or what would you suggest in a mono amp to give me close to 350 wats per sub?
Bignatedabal: You can't get something more out of a device than it's rating. In other words, if you have a 400W amp that's all it's going to produce. For example if you're looking to drive both sub spkrs @ 350W each then buy a sub amp with a rating of 700W @ 2ohms & connect your 4ohm spkrs in parallel to the amp. Each spkr will produce 350W of sound if everything is installed correctly.
1 thing to look for in amp mfg's. Look for those who rate their amps in RMS power. This is the true output rating. Many amps are rated in peak-to-peak which seems great but doesn't tell you the real story, unless you know how to do the math to determine the RMS. The better mfg's will take the time to test their amps & rate them properly. Also look for massive heatsinking (the cooling fins). I consider cooling fans to be a benefit as well.
