Hello crucible19,

The Alpine MRP-F240 is a 4-channel amp that outputs 40 watts RMS per channel. It is more suited for powering normal speakers, but since it is bridgeable, you could power a small sub by bridging 2 of the channels.

Hope this helps.

Watts rms?


It is the root mean square (abbreviated RMS or rms), roughly 0.707 of the peak wattage of an AC source. Crutchfield lists it at >power range: 2-110 watts RMS (450 watts peak power)

Just want to know what speaker wattage matches my v12 mrv f705 85 rms x4 channel amplifier?


Use speakers that will handle 85 RMS continuous or higher wattage. I have 200 watt Rockford 6.5s on a 75 watt amp. They sound great with plenty of headroom if I go to a bigger amp.

    What size amp needed with a sony explod player?


    this bandpass enclosure is rated peak power at 1200 watts . what this means is that each subwoofer in the is peaked at 600watts to make 1200 watts . what your looking for is to power up the subs with rms continuous wattage . you need an amp that will put out 400 to 500 rms a channel to run this sub enclosure at 800 to 1000 watts rms to keep the speaker from blowing

    Amplifier For Powering Sony Xplod xs-l121p5


    Pump the brakes!
    You need to know the RMS power rating of the sub you are powering.
    Dont exceed the RMS power rating of the sub by more than 25%.
    If you see a peak power rating on either the sub or the amp, ignor it, means nothing. Always compare RMS ratings.
    Example: a Sony 12" Xplod sub, boasting 1200 watts, will only handle, 350 watts RMS, so the amp you choose to power the sub should be 350 watts RMS as well, and should not exceed more than 25% of the RMS power handling (487.5 watts).
    Bottom line, know your RMS numbers, not Peak.

    Subwoofers


    This will depend on the amplifiers capabilities.

    I will give 2 different scenarios.

    #1 Stereo configuration

    If the amplifier supports an RMS power output close to the RMS input power of the subwoofers then run the amplifier in stereo mode. For example 150 watts RMS X 4 channels driven at 20-20khz. (If you can provide a model # for the subs and the amp your looking at I can help you further with this decision.

    Wiring for this is easy and simply involves matching the connectors for 2 of the channels (Front or Rear) to each of the subwoofers.

    #2 Mono Bridged mode.

    If the amplifier is lower power but mono bridgable you can bridge two Pairs of channels and power each of the subwoofers this way.

    Generally speaking a 2 channel bridgable amplifier will be able to at least combine the wattage of each channel into a single monural channel and in many cases its actually higher.

    So you would bridge the front 2 channels into a single bridged mode for one subwoofer. and then you could bridge the read 2 channels into another bridged mono channel for your other sub woofer.

    For example if you had bridgable amplifier thats 50 watts RMS X 4 you coudl very likely (Generalization based on quality of amplifier) send 150 watts RMS to each subwoofer.

    Again I would need to know what amp you're refering to to provide specific wiring instructions. Many Bridging amplifiers either have a single switch that will send them to bridged mode or you would use the positive + terminal from one channel and the negative - terminal from the other channel or a combination of both.
