Parasound JC1 Monblock mfg specs:

continuous 400W into 8 ohms and 800W into 4 ohms, short-term 1200 watts into 2 ohms; 1st 25 watts in Class A (option to reduce to 10 watts).

17.75W x 7.7H x 20D, 81 lbs, retail $3000 each.

Most amps that spec a doubling from 8 to 4 ohms don't do it in a lab test. For example a 300/600 turns into a 400/650 lab test...yes, the mfg beat his specs, but his amps don't double in my book.

JC1 lab results. Class A up to 29W (where most listening would occur).

Power at clippling (about 1% THD):

586.5W into 8 ohms

1154W into 4 ohms

2255W into 2 ohms

4200W into 1 ohm

HALO SMOKES!!!! Double-down all the way down to 1 ohm!
