Titled 250w, features tab says it has a 160w amp, specs tab shows 250w output 300w max.
How can a 160w amp run at 250w? Crutchfield shows this model has a max of 250w and RMS of 160w.
Confusing, ain't it?!? I doubt that Bazooka rates the power on their amps using the CEA2006 standard. The specs on their website are just as confusing, all of which is par for the course for some car audio manufacturers, especially lower end ones. Large wattage numbers will lure in unsuspecting buyers, but the truth is the numbers shown are usually for peak power, not RMS power, which appears to be the case here. I'd believe the 160W RMS number. The 250W is the peak power output of the amp. That said, 160W should push that tube fine.
