This Legacy sucks help me


Unregistered guest
Hey ppl, I got a Legacy LA1490 1600 watts max amp. I was talking to a friend about why my subs won't hit hard. So he figured up the wattage and said it was only doing 518.4 is this TRUE???? I'm using well have been using it for 11 months and it works great but if it is only doing 518 watts then I need a bigger amp any ideas if the statement above is true. Also what would be a BETTER amp for my 2 15" Kicker CVRs'. Thanks guys

actually you're not getting anywhere close to 500 watts from that amp.
it took some work but I found the real power rating for it.

150 watts RMS x 2 @ 2 ohms.
that's 300 watts RMS x 1 @ 4 ohms

Remote Control Bass Booster (0-18dB @ 60Hz)
at SIXTY HERTZ!!?? Christ that's high for bass boost.
This amp is a total piece of CRAP.

nothing personal, but throw that junk in the trash.
Your CompVR 15" subs need about 400-500 watts RMS each. the Kicker KX800.2 would do the trick if the subs are each dual 4 ohm coil models.

Legacy has to be one of THE worst companies around for misleading customers and ripping them off.
