Still working out our PA tweaks and I have another question. I have two subs I need to power. One is a Peavey 118 and the other is a Yamaha Club SW118iv.
The Peavey is rated at 400/800 and the Yamaha is rated at 500/1000. I will be powering them with a QSC GX7 which is rated at 725W per channel into 8 ohms or 1000W per channel into 4 ohms.
If I run each sub on its own channel, they will be getting 725W each if I max them out. If I daisy chain them both on one channel, each will get 500W.
Question is, given that from what I've learned, speakers can be overpowered safely within reason, would I run a realistic risk of blowing one of the subs if I push 725W into each one or should I be ok as long as I don't push the amp close to clipping?
Or should I just play it safe and run both daisy chained on one channel so each gets 500W and is well within the power ratings of the speakers?
BTW, this will be used for a classic rock band. No real heavy hip-hop type bass or anything like that. Just a live kick drum and bass guitar.
