I got an amp given to me by a relative and I think its 5-10 years old but its been a while since I kept up with car audio.
The amp is a Kenwood KAC-949. I have not had any luck finding specs for it online. Does anyone remember this amp or have any ideas on where to get more info?
It's marked as a 200w x 4 max which I would imagine is at a 2 ohm load. Any ideas on realistic output for it and what would be good to use to push some subs? I was thinking either a pair of 10s or 12s or just going with a single 10 or 12.
Thanks for any info and advice.

I had a kac 949 and a kac 959-damn that was along time ago, anyway both were like 60 watts RMS @ 4 ohms X 4. The 959 had a fifth channel that was 120 watts RMS. I was using those amps to bi-amp 2 sets of seperates and the fifth channel on the 959 was for my subs. I rember trying to bridge the 949 into 2 channel to run my subs when the fifth channel on the 959 died. I wasn't pleased (not enough power).
My subs were 2 10" orion 8 ohm in a big ported box. I forget the specs. They were wired in parallel for 4 ohms. I ended up getting a Fosgate punch 200 and was happy. This was years ago. I wouldn't use that Kenwood for subs though. Mids and highs were its strong suits.
