    Can this amp go down to 2 ohms? If so, how many watts would it be pushing?

    It will run at 2 ohms, Rick just doesn't provide info on that because it wasn't tested and approved at that. However he has ok'd me to run it and give feedback and I also know Chris Benavente has run Schroeder 1212 and 1010 cabs together at 2 ohms and said it worked find for practice........not sure about gig. I will say that the power the Schroeder's will handle the focus won't really get there, but at medium volumes it will be fine. A lot depends on what your trying to push with it. If I had to guess wattage wise at 2ohm's I'd say around 800 watts.

    You might shoot Rick and e-mail and ask him about running it. Ricks a good guy and will be straight with you on his thoughts.
