    Someone describe what they would consider the minimum electrical
    system someone should use for this beautiful monster.

    4,040watts right around 1ohm after rise dropping to 11.3 volts.

    Again, these were not peak hold measurements and these are unofficial results. I'll get some official results from Jacob's equipment on Monday or Tuesday. That way all our testing will be uniform from the same meters.
    sounds about right... getting a mean between the rest voltage and lowest voltage, i would say the amp will easly do rms spec very linear @12.5 volts... must sell my 1750 to get one of these.

    In SPL Derrick was 1 dB up at 1 ohm vs. the 3000D!

    We got similar numbers on my clamp at the shop:

    3980 @ 0.25 rising to 0.65 @ 11.2v (engine on)

    2050 @ 1 rising to 2.44 @ 12.2v (engine off)

    These are measured ~6-10 seconds in as my meter takes some time to put up a reading - it does power all at once.

    Re: Saz-3500

    Raymond Farmer's 12v Testing:

    "Okay, I have done my SAZ3000D 12volt power test. I would like to say, WOW!!

    My nominal ohm load was 0.5 ohms. I did plenty of test but I got the amp to do its power at the proper settings and did 3 test and took the average.

    I used 2 x NSB-g3100 to power the amp, Starting voltage 13.2

    Test 1
    75.1 volts
    39.9 amps
    2996.5
    box rise 1.88
    voltage drop 12.2

    Test 2
    75.1 volts
    37.7 amps
    2827.5 watts
    box rise 1.99
    voltage drop 12.1

    Test 3
    76.0 volts
    39.5 amps
    3002.0 watts
    box rise 1.9
    voltage drop 12.1

    Average of 3 test
    75.4 volts
    39.03 amps
    2942.86 watts
    box rise 1.92 approximately 2 ohms

    So 2942.86 watts @ 2ohms @ 12.1 volts

    That is some power!!!"

    Silly question here, has anyone done 4 ohm nominal testing?

    Re: Saz-3500

    what meter you have J?? im thinking about getting the B&K clamp/power meter measures VA VAR HP etc.. thing that go me thinking is the 3% tolerance... when your tring to troubleshoot i rathere have fluke but there near 2Gs!!
    feed back on the meter please.. i know the amp kicks ***,lol

    I have an Extech unit - it will read VAR, VA, and HP as well

    I have had great luck with it.

    Nope - but I'd say it wouldn't be very impressive with a typical rise to 6-8 ohms or so! I don't really recommend running these big high current Class-D amps at 4 ohms as they generally don't perform very well.

    Re: Saz-3500

    I did some more testing recently :



    POWER : 3660 Watts
    AMP VOLTAGE (measured) : 65.84 V
    AMP CURRENT (calculated) : 55.58 A
    ACTUAL IMPEDANCE (calculated) : 1.18 ohms
    SUPPLY VOLTAGE : 11.9 V

    http://www.sundownaudio.com/misc/_AMP_POWE...0D/CIMG2510.MOV
    * Power Clamp

    http://www.sundownaudio.com/misc/_AMP_POWE...0D/CIMG2511.MOV
    * Voltage Measurement

    This was part of a larger group of testing :

    On that note... these are about to be back in stock in a few weeks.
