#### What determines how many watts a speaker can handle?

A speaker's peak power handling is typically 4 times its continuous power handling. So the speaker can probably handle 1000 watts peak. That means you can use a 1000 watt amplifier to drive that speaker -- as long as you use that power for peaks,**and**do not drive the speaker continuously with 1000 watts.

#### What determines speaker wattage?

Multiply the amperage**and**the volts to find the max wattage. Take the speaker's voltage

**and**multiply it by the amperage to get a rough estimate of the maximum wattage. For example, if your speaker has 120V

**and**5A, multiply these numbers together to get 600 watts.

#### Can speakers handle more watts?
