Sure you can put 1800 watts into the woofer, but sound quality will suffer even more. The mechanical limit of the RSS460HO-4 is probably 34 mm. I got this value from a matched passive radiator RSS460-PR
which actually has 34 mm. In this case, 70% of mechanical limits is 23 mm for RSS460HO-4. javeryh have to decide which is preferred. Sound quality or SPL. If preferred sound quality, have to keep the excursions to 12.8 mm as the maximum. If preferred SPL, 23 mm is the maximum at a cost of 50% distortion.
I recommend going with a different pro-amplifier that has connectors that are familiar. I don't recommend going to eBay to get products unless you know what product you are buying hasn't been abused.
I don't recommend 2000 watt amplifier for this woofer. It's way over the limit and the mechanical limit is easily reached with one peak of output.
The following pictures show the results of my WinISD. I don't like WinISD because I believe it's not accurate. Think WinISD as a very rough draft for an estimate.
The amps are brand new from Authorized dealers and come with the factory warranty and a Speakon connector is not that difficult to use.
has designed and built his own theater from the looks of it. I think he can handle a Speakon connector, I am sure of it. I have faith in you
You realize you can set a limiter, it is not like you are feeding the sub 2000watts no matter what?
