Below are specs for the amp...

Maximum Output Power: 1600 Watts x 1
Power Output at 1 Ohm, at 14.4V (100Hz, 1.0% THD): 1,000 Watts x 1
Power Output at 2 Ohms, at 12V (100Hz, 0.5% THD): 600 Watts x 1
Power Output at 2 Ohms, at 14.4V (1kHz, 0.5% THD): 800 Watts x 1
Power Output at 4 Ohms, at 12V (20Hz - 200Hz, 0.5% THD): 300 Watts x 1
Power Output at 4 Ohms, at 14.4V (20Hz - 200Hz, 0.5% THD): 400 Watts x 1
Power Output at 4 Ohms, at 14.4V (20Hz-20kHz, 0.05% THD): 400 Watts x 1
Dynamic Power: 566 Watts

Output Regulation: Under 0.2dB (4 ohms)
R.M.S. Power Output (1-Ohm/1-Channel): 1016 Watts (1.0% THD+N)
R.M.S. Power Output (2-Ohms/1-Channel): 919 Watts (1.0% THD+N)
R.M.S. Power Output (4-Ohms/1-Channel): 533 Watts (1.0% THD+N)
Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 74dB (4 ohms)

It lists power output, and then lists R.M.S. Power output as higher ? Is is it because the THD went from .5% to 1%?

one is what you'd call an average or continuous rating under normal use. the higher power rating at 1% THD is a CEA rating, but most people won't drive an amp to that high a distortion level
