Then with the ARC 125.2, this amp spec's at 70w @ 4 ohm or 125w @ 2 ohm, so when you go to series ending up with 2 ohm, you end up with more watt output, and overall better performance?

So you are saying that is all nonsense, and I should switch this to parallel? I was actually getting ready to upgrade to PN4.1000D to give a separate channel to each of the fairing and lowers. I wonder if changing from series to parallel is going to offer any improvement?

Thanks for your insight!
Make the move to a different amp. U won't regret it.

Would the bigger ARC600.4 do him justice?

Without a doubt. Even that PN4100D he mentioned will be a significant watt bump.
