Okay, who has experience with any Clarion amps? Do they put out their full rms power? I have a DPX1800 (800rms at 1ohm) and have had it for a while... Seems pretty powerful to me, but I'm not sure whether or not it'd be 800wrms? Doesn't come with a birth sheet or anything so wtf eh.

are you running it at 1 or 2 ohms to get the full 800, if at 4 ohms its only 450

I know one person who is running that same amp, seems to put out around 800w RMS.

Does anyone know if you can get these amps tested to see how much they push out at RMS? Some kind of meter. I wanna see how much my friend Sony amp pushes out, I am sure it doesn't push out its supposed "RMS" rating.

I'm running it at 1 ohm of course.

I just wanted to make sure that it is infact putting out the power it says it will.

But, one thing I don't get STILL is how can it be 800rms at 1 OR 2 ohms????

Oh really? This was the first time I had seen this (I don't look at any JL stuff) so it sounded funny to me...


Good to know, thanks.
