My System Specs

Default

I can agree with you 100% if the amplifier is running above the RMS limit (of course assuming that the manufacturer was honest in supplying said limit), however I was always under the impression that the RMS limit listed by both the amplifier and the driver was the maximum power that both could operate properly. Or, to put it differently, it's the limit before any clipping occurs. Since the only power mentioned was RMS power, I believe that lead to the disagreements above.

As I mentioned though, this hinges greatly on manufacturer honesty, and doesn't take into account degradation of the components over the life of the unit.
