i thought i had this down, but now im confused about setting amp gains.
yesterday i set my gains with -6 dB 50Hz tone, no load, and using an oscope. i stopped right before the scope showed a clipped signal. i was getting 66V read out at this point.
today, i doubled checked my power.. this time i got my ear protection and connected the amp to my 2-ohm sub load, i was getting about 36V.
my amp is rated for 1200wrms.. and at 2 ohms.. that is about 49V.
im confused.. how am i supposed to set the amp.. no load or with a load? and what voltage?
