  1. No it is too small! Talk about confusing name but you are right it is only 250watts, have come across that unit many times in here wrongly presumed being 400watts.
  2. so what is the 223-400 thing??

  4. I guess it is 400watts peak and 250watt constant. Does not change it has to be considered 250watt and is total crap.
