I noticed that on the product page and in the datasheet the power in BTL mode is specified as max 630W into 4 ohms. However the ICEPower 250ASX2 datasheet gives this spec into 8 ohms (page 8). The minimum allowable load for the amp in BTL mode is 6 ohms (page 5).

I noticed that too, does make these hard to use for normal 4 ohm subwoofer drivers. I suspect a similar mistake was made on the PWR-ICE125 specs. Would be good to have the website fixed up perhaps?

Hi Chris, no I don't think so, I am referring ONLY to the 250 amp.

The 125 module IS rated for operation into a 4ohm load when bridged. Please refer to the B&O datasheet for the 125 amp: www.icepower.bang-olufsen.com/files/solu...lass_d_amplifier.pdf
