According to a listing on epinions, it appears that the amp is 8 ohms per channel standard, and can be bridged to 4ohms.

One post says that he has it bridged to 4 ohms and is getting 560 watts of output.

I couldn't find a manual for it, so you may want to contact Power Acoustik to be sure.

### How many watts does a 59516-751 model require to run?

Simple Answer is just to know two formulas

Ohm's Law
V = IR

Power
P = IV

From those you can calculate voltage, amps, watts, ohms

V = Voltage (volts)
I = Current (amps or amperes)
R = Resistance (ohm's)
P = Power (watts)

Just solve for what you are missing.

Voltage times amps being drawn shows watts produced.
Watts divided by voltage shows amps being drawn or watts
divided by amperage shows voltage applied.

### How many total watts does this system have

Well... It consumes 240 watts of electrical power total so take the audio power specifications with a huge grain of salt, as no audio device puts out in audio power anywhere near what it consumes in electrical power. Heat produced is power consumed, too and nothing is 100% efficient.

In the specs below the only information useful for comparison is in the line I highlighted with >>> <<<<'s as it conforms the closest to the industry standard practice of using:

"X watts into 8 ohms (standard load) from 20 - 20000 hz plus or minus Y db at no more than .0Z% distortion"

The better amps specify vanishingly low distortion specs (0.0x% vs 0.x%) at the cost of being able to claim higher wattage. But they guarantee cleaner sound at the claimed levels.

JVC is being tricky with their choice of a 40 hz lower limit. THAT is the power hungry end of the spectrum. 20 hz is normally the lower limit stated.

"Output Power .............At Stereo operation
Front channels .............55 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 4 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.9 % total harmonic distortion. (IEC268-3/DIN) 30 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.9 % total harmonic distortion. (IEC268-3/DIN)

>>>>> 30 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms, 40 Hz to 20 kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion. <<<<<

At Surround operation
Front channels .............50 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion.

Center channel .............50 watts, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion.

Rear channel .................50 watts, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion."

### Power Acoustik LT 980-2 clipping while bridged pushing 1ohm load

Hello, your problem is that your amp is rated at 4 ohms bridged mono ans 2 ohms stereo. If your running it in stereo you need to raise the ohms to 2 ohms a channel and if your running it bridged into 1 channel you need to be running it at 4 ohms. Please rate this solution please so I can prgress on FixYa.com. Thanks!

### Need help wireing sub

Is the speaker a dual voice coil speaker? If so you can wire it up a couple of diferent ways, go to rockfordfosgate.com they have a woolfer wiring wizard that can show you the different ways to wire for 8 ohm.....4 ohm.....2 ohm....and 1 ohm...I would figure out how to get the most power out of the amp in mono mode, take that ohm load from there and see if you can wire your speaker to match it.

### Lt960-4 power acoustik Amp 4 channels mono

it can be used as a bass amp. if each pair of channels is bridged then you will basically have a 2 channel amp. just be sure to set the x-over's to lpf for subwoofers. I checked the power ratings, and bridged at a 4 ohm load will give you 250 rms watts per sub, so thats enough to run most 10's or 12's. there wasnt a rating for a 2 ohm load, but your amp should support it.

### I have a jl 1000/1 mono amp and my low ohm light was on and making a buzzing sound and found that there was a resistor that one of the terminals broke off and now no matter where i look i cant find the...

The 5 ohm could be challenging, what you could try is to get 2 10ohm 3 watt and put them in parallel. Will be 5 ohm and 10ohm is easy to get

Hope that helps
