Re: watts

The advertised wattage for your amp is:

300 watts RMS X 2 @ 4 ohms

600 watts RMS X 2 @ 2 ohms

The actual wattage you will be using will depend on what type/impedence speakers you are using, and how they are wired. Here's a link to some more of the specs of your amp:

I hope this helps.

Speakers are rated either at RMS (root mean square) average power or Peak Power. An RMS of about 125 watt is equivalent to 250 watt peak. To match the radio and speakers they both need to be consistent. Also do not be confused with total radio power out vs per channel.

So if the speakers are 250 watt peak power then a radio with 125 watt per channel or 250 watt peak per channel would be a good match.

If the speakers are RMS 250 watt then the radio would be 250 RMS/channel and usually with a four channel radio a total of 1000W RMS

With that much power the neighbors should hear you coming!

Your amplifier probably has four separate channels, each rated at a certain number of watts into a certain load, for example 2 ohms. If you do not have a *total *impedance of 2 ohms on each of the four channels, your results may vary.

If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:

+ -

+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

one is peak power the other is the more accurate RMS power.

Make shure your running thick guage wire like 2-0 guage wire to get correct power to it also and check on amp the ohm's it can handle to make shure your not running to makny ohms.

200 X 4 does mean 200 watts times 4 channels. In other words each channel pushes out 200 watts. I believe u have a total output power of 800 watts but check with ur manual and if u do use that much power make sure you check for overheating, specially if its used for bass. Soundstorm amps cant take much of a beating so be careful.

400 watts delivered to 300 watt speakers the only way to do this would be to wire two subwoofers in series so that the power needed to drive them will be 600 watts to max, however this will increase your impedance on the speaker (8 ohms) load so what you can do to compensate is get an 8 ohm 600 watt resistor and put it in parallel with the speakers you will then have 4 ohms of impedance at a total capacity of 600 watts of power
In other words the amplifier won't blow these out now.

If the KAC-7252 is to be bridged, the operation mode switch on the top of the amp is set to mono. When switched to Mono, the signal from the left channel input only is used.
Bridging creates 4 times as much power so the KAC-7252 delivers 170 Watts per channel so that 340 watts total so that value 340 is multiplied by 4 and that gives you 1360 watts of power. so it will drive them.
