My QSC Power Amp (USA850) says in the manual in the specs table "under output power (bridged mono)" - next to “4 ohms” - 1100 watts, and next to 8 ohms, it says 850 watts.

Earlier in the manual it says it produces 425 watts per channel at 4 ohms.

Now here is where I get confused. This venue has 2 unpowered speakers (Peavey PV 112). The Peavey site says these are 8 ohm speakers with power rating of 200 watts continuous and 400 watts program i the Q&A section (PV(R) 112 | Peavey). But the actual speaker specs say:

- 2-way PA speaker

- Power rating is 400W

- Peak power capacity 800W

So if these are 8 ohm speakers, how does that match up with the QSC amp? I'm confused by all the different power numbers and what happens based on the impedance. bottom line -

**will this amp work well with these speakers**?

Thanks!
