I have a power acoustik amp and I am unsure on how to read the RMS, I am wondering how much each channel can take when one channel is running to one subwoofer. This is the page for my amp:

I'm looking to upgrade subs but don't want to get subs that can't be powered by this amp. So I'd like to know what the RMS power for each channel is.

If you want to run each channel to a seperate sub you will have 370w per sub. If you bridge the amp to run only one sub with both channels combined, you will have 800w. These figures are at 4ohms.

Ok, so if I bridge them, I can get 880 watts of RMS power. This means my amp could basically handle most of one sub that has 900 watts. What sub (specific) would you guys reccomend for 900 watts? I've found this one so far:

Any other models you know of/reccomend?
