Question about Car Audio & Video
Generally a battery puts out 14.1 volts to the amplifier. The only way your amp would get really hot really fast is if the amp was configured to run at to low of an ohm load.
That amps spec is to run at 2 ohm stereo. But I do see an option to get 1400 watts with 2 ohm mono, but that would require 2 dual 2 ohm subs using only one voice coil bridged to the amp. If you run both subs with both voice coils in parallel you'll get a 1 ohm load and that will overheat your amp.
Ohms are the units that impedance is measured with. You can kind of think of impedance as the measure of how hard the amp has to push to get current to flow. The lower the impedance, the more power will be output from your amp. Unfortunately, the amplifier circuit wants to push against something, so that if the impedance is too low, the amp can perform badly, and even overheat and burn out.
Hope this helps!
