Default true power of orion 2250 "the beast"

hi, i finally came across a 2250sx and was wondering what the true power output is, if its stronger than a class d 2000 watt amp or not, because im having problems finding the diodes and drive transistors for it incase it needs repair when i pick it up.

so i figure if it isnt any stronger than current days power, i may as well get a current amp...
any input appreciated.!

thanks, those are the manufacturer specs,,,,but i kinda want to know what the 'real' specs are....

as the 250hcca and the 2150 sx push around 1000 watts alone.

i remember tests on the orion 250 hcca years ago, 2 ohm mono was just under 600 watts if i remember correctly,asking 1000 w from either one of those amps is very optimistic,

Whats going on!The 2250 sx is a great amp but, it's good for those 2 to 4ohm loads.I have one of those right now pushing a 15 Orion H2 and works great it is a DVC 4ohm and it works great and the speaker is a 2500 watt speaker.They work great togeather to give you a idea.This is a amp that i haven't messed with.You might be able to use what i said as a scale.Remember the 2100 will do those lower ohm loads and the power supple comes with a lower mosfet than the 2250.It's not much lower but, the coils are the same and everything else but, some resistors.What i found is you will blow the fuses inside first if the loads is to low.If you need the parts and they blow i will help you get them.I found a place that has everything cheap old new stock.I bought up alot of there stock.

i measured the 250 at around 956 watts, its way more than 600 watts the 2150 was a little stronger. at 14.8 volts

this is ironic, ive always wanted a 2250, but now that i found one
im hesitating.

hey fu, you try those BD's yet? if you have any extra FEN/P30 diods laying around let me know...
