not every unit will do the same. the slightest difference in a solder can make the biggest difference in voltage.

At first the amps will start clipping, and if you go to far past what the amps need you will blow them out. I know I fried two amps in my younger days until I figured out what i was doing wrong.

Oh and when the amps clip, you can damage the speakers and possibly blow them too.
