: That's where we're getting confused.
Sorry for the confusion. Each box is 8 ohms and I have one box to each side so instead of the 250 watts per side I'de get at 4 ohmes I might be getting maybe 175 watts per side. I'm not running the head biamp (different signal each side) but with the same signal out of both (I couldn't see the point as both the boxes are the same. Thanks.
