Also, it's strictly regulated so it will at least deliver its rated power with any reasonable supply voltage. I consider 250 watts per speaker the max for a HollowPoint 770. Would I ever have a problem running that much power on the HP770? Nope. But I wouldn't trust everyone with it. It all depends on how you take care of your possessions.
David, my volume control is installed in an enclosure which verifies me by means of a retina scan followed by a fingerprint scan as added means of security. I have the new 2025 MasterCraft 007... no one has ever managed to blow up anything on my boat...except for the tube!
