    Default Will this amp be enough for the DB124??

    ive got an old school Precision Power Art Series A200 amp, 50w x 2 @ 4ohm, 200 x 1 @ 4 ohm, 400 x 1 @ 2 ohm.. Will this amplifier be enough to run my db124? if so which setup do you recommend, 200x1@4ohm or 400x1 @ 2ohm? is the db124 2 ohm stable?

    Yup.

    Speakers arent stable at 4 or 2 ohm. Ohms is a measure of the load and the speaker is the load. Its the amp that has to be stable down to 2 ohms and it looks like your is (cause old school PPI rules!).

    If you want to run your amp at 2 ohms, youll have to get the DB sub with dual voice coils. Hook them both up in parallel and youll have 2 ohms but be careful cause 400 PPI watts is about 800 to the rest of the world.
