WattsI don't exactly know but this may help....if the amp has only 4 inputs (2negative, 2positive) then it will be 300w (around that mark)...if there is 4 negative and 4 positive for 4 speakers then it is likely to be around 1000w WRONG ANSWERThat is not even close. The best way to find out how many watts and amp is is to look at the specifications. If you know the make and model of the amp, look it up on the internet. The amount of "inputs" (which are really outputs) has nothing to do with the power. In fact, the most powerul amps have one channel.

What speakers match a 300 watt 4 channel amplifier?

The ratings for the speakers will depend upon what '300 watts' means. If the amplifier develops 300 watts RMS total across 4 channels, this would indicate 75 watts RMS per channel. Speakers rated at 100 watts should suffice for this amplifier.

If you have two 1400 watt subwoofers that have a 700 watt RMS should you get an amplifier that has the watts of both of the subwoofers together 2800 or should you get an amplifier with only 1400 watts?

get the 2800
