does an mc2 e90 amplifier meet its published specs? 8000w per channel at 2 ohm seems to be an awful amount of power. are they capable on sub duty at 2ohm

I don't no mate, that's why I am asking about them, I think if they cant do 8k at 2 ohms on bass then whats the point of them.......would like to hear from some one that uses them for this.

In my opinion, no they can't. Sound very nice but not a lot of balls and seem to run out of steam well before you'd think 8000w was happening. Try a K20.

If you sell your PL9's for anything less than Powersoft K8+ or FFA10k you will be disappointed.

E90 wont do 8k @ 2 ohms, but will drive 4x of most 8 ohm drivers per channel.

Some would call it misleading advertising, but all lightweight amp manufacturers do it.

Only transformer sub amps can perform to spec on a bench & sustain it, so just get quality lightweight, rated at gazillion watts, & should be ok.

If you want to go MC2, go for the E100.  It's built on newer technology and having 4 channels will make it much more flexible.

heard mc2 E90 running 4 21'' horn subs per channel.8kw in 2ohms is just a joke.it was clipping
like hell while the other ram amps were still green and still pushing the subs.the guy who brought
it for testing was totally disappointed..
