A very generalized statement and a highly misleading statement IMO. IMO any amp can trip if used incorrectly /tuned incorrectly/driven incorrectly.
But coming back to Audison -- have seen it on many high end set ups used both in sub and fronstage configs.. works like magic.

I don't think we need to have another debate to prove if the amp trips or not. In a special circumstance, any amp would just lock up and go for a trip. Maybe, it was a coincidence that the above mentioned amp was taken to that circumstance more often.

But please, can we avoid another cock fight? LoL....

No intention to start the fight....I had a opinion I shared it.

Have an Audison LRx 1.400 as well, which was specifically running a single sub with no tripping issues whatsoever. I guess it just depends on how someone (mis)uses an amp, be it audison or any other brand.

Any amp can be made to trip. Sometimes with unexplainable reason.

As Gunbir said, I was running an Audison LRx1.4, using it with an IDQ12d2v2 at 4 ohms.
The amp has never tripped or gone into protection. It is very a nice amp -- I'd have loved to keep it, but it had to go, to finance my recent amp upgrade.

I have heard that Skodas have a tripping problem, especially when wearing wrong shoes.

Yes but did you find the reason. We could not. Even the maestro was stumped.

1. the difference between 1114W and 1000W is less than 1db.

3. the ratings are incomplete and as such tell you NOTHING. NOthing about the max SPL you will achieve with either combination, NOTHING about the F3 you will achieve with eithr combination and defintely NOTHING about the Sound Quality. Hence I would recoommend that you USE your ears BEFORE making a decision.
Met LBM Today ( Very nice guy - Gem of a person)
I was in the front seat and beanstalk_230 in the back and both of us were like God , how about a full carton of cotton Amazing Sound / Amazing Bass / Everything amazing

1. I meant that if i have a 1201.1 (1114 w) and run 2 subs of 500w on it wont the difference of 114w make any problems

Audison is crossed out of my list
It's either 1201.1 / 7001 / 14001

Wrong shoes aka wiring?
I was told by my dealer that i should not cut any wires for any ICE install as it would void the warranty ( as it is my car is new )
He mentioned to do the connections from the coupler or something called male/female.

There will be non if played softly but will be when played hard.

But like Bhagwan Ji say, Skoda is the best car for Iceing because of MOTA PATRA (thick sheet)..

The 1114 RMS value is @ 14.4V.
In real world conditions, you're going to recieve around 13.8 only.
Plus, the gains can be trimmed accordingly.

There is no harm in running a 500watt subwoofer off a 1000watt amp. The amp will run cooler and on a lower gain setting. Bass will be a lot more controlled as I have personally experienced it.

There are more chances of a person blowing a speaker by underpowering it than by overpowering it..
Let me try and explain (I'm no guru and could be wrong, but this is what I have understood)

Consider a situation in which you are running a subwoofer rated at 500watts RMS off an amplifier rated at 100watts RMS.
Your ideal power requirement is say 250watts.
Now, you turn up the volume. Your amp is producing 250watts, but its clipping at the same time. There is distortion which the human ear can hear only beyond a certain point and in most cases its too late until then. Harmonic Distortion causes the voice coil to over-heat and you end up blowing you speaker.

As I said I could be wrong, but this is as far as my understanding goes. The general thumb rule is to choose a higher rated amplifier so that you have some headroom.

Gurus, please correct me where I'm wrong.

Yes get the coupler. But that is not what Sam and I were refering to. I had an unusual amplifier problem in my car which was fixed but we never got to know why the problem surfaced in the first place so that was not really meant for public consumption.
