    Yes, it was flawed. I should have said that you'd be unable to use the full potential of the larger hose. There's one major flaw in the entire pool filling discussion. So far, nobody has mentioned the location of the pool.

    In my example, the pool could be located anywhere within 100' of the hose bib, at the other end of either 100' length of hose. Of course, if the pool were considerably higher/lower than the hose bib, positive/negative head would be a consideration to that extent.

    YES , as trivial things go . . . picture [ dead horse ] "Whip it Good". >>>
    There's one major flaw in the entire pool filling discussion. So
    If the amplifier you have makes it's power/watts into 4 0hms or 2 0hm stable . A better choice might be a ! ohm stable amp , it may handle more current.

    ie. [

    • Class-D 1-Ohm Stable Monoblock Amplifier
    • Peak Power Rating:
      • 4 ohms: 650 watts x 1 chan.
      • 2 ohms: 1200 watts x 1 chan.
      • 1 ohm: 2400 watts x 1 chan.

    ]
    Use what you can afford and enjoy what it provides . [ unless . . . it quits ?

    Re: Water analogy

    My thought is that if we have 2 amps:

    Amplifier A is rated 125x2@4, 250x2@2, and 500x1@4
    Amplifier B is rated 125x1@4, 250x1@2, and 500x1@1

    Both amps should be capable of driving 4 - 4 ohm subwoofers equally.

    Another thought is that if Amplifier A can actually run at 1 ohm for short bursts and Amplifier B goes into protect at 0.8 ohms, the choice is easily A. If Amplifier A goes into protect at 1.8 ohms and Amplifier B can actually run 0.5 ohm, then the choice is clearly B.

    If we're trying to find the amplifier that produced the most power above it's rated, look no further than the Orion Concept 97-3. I think that amp exceeds it's rated power by 100,000%.
