I can only put 0.9 V RMS into the EP4000. I have an LMS-R 15" DVC I'm trying to drive with it. First question, running the EP4000 as 4 ohm bridged is the same thing as running it as 2 ohm stereo, correct? Does this mean the 0.9V RMS I give it can output 2025V RMS? P= (Vin*Vgain)^2/R = (0.9*50)^2/2 = 1012.5. So it gives 1012.5 Watts per channel, so in bridged it is doing 2025W? Can someone please tell me if this is correct?
Or is the amp power calculated based on a single 4 ohm load, so P = (0.9*50)^2/4 = 506.25.
If the latter is true, what can I do to get the Vin up to where it needs to be?
