Hi I have a pwrice125. It says it sends 125 watts at 4 ohms. I have an 8 ohm woofer so how much power will go to 8 ohms?

The reason I ask is, my woofer's power handling is 80 watts (long term max power is 150watts) and should I be worried about sending more than it handles at 8 ohms?

Thanks...

Beautiful setup! Typically, the recommended amp rating is 2 x the driver... You must already know that for asking that question.. ;-)
The PWRICE has a protection, just be aware of that limitation when you drive the speaker though.

Check out the datasheet for the Icepower module for very complete specs:

p9 will give you all the answers for rating/load/power.
