    Subs

    my amp is the older model i think. Its a class a/b or something like that. It only runs stable at 4ohms and up. Bridged at 4 ohms puts out 600 watts. I may get a bigger box. I shouldnt have to boost the piss out of this thing to get it to beat up. Only problem is that pioneer recomends a...
