    Amp ratings at normal volume (in my experience)

    Example 1: Legacy LA120 240 watt amplifier
    Take the rated power:
    Divide by the number of speaker outs(2): 120watts
    Divide by half for nominal power: 60watts
    Divide by Ohms(4) : 15watts
    Divide for amp efficiency, which will NEVER be 100%, in this case, around 70%: 10.5watts!
    OMG You never saw that coming!! I tested this peticular amp, and it did around 12 watts.

    Example 2: Power Acoustik ov2 1200
    Add the numbers on the fuses and multiply by 10 (600)
    divide by number of channels(2): 300
    Divide by 2 for nominal power: 150watts!
    At normal volume, and 65% gain mine does around 60 watts per channel. If I give it hell, it does 474.6 per channel, which is 175 watts higher than advertised. This was tested with a multimeter, not load resistors and sinewaves, don't quote me.

    Never assume just because you have a 4000 watt amplifier that you're getting 4000 watts. It's all relative.

    Re: *amplifiers/power ratings*

    What an odd thread to find after being woken up by the 2yr old.

    A great many of the units you have listed are shown with their peak output rating... which we all know is a pretty useless number... so... why?

    Not flaming, just curious

    EDIT: And now that I see how old this thread originally was I'm fairly sure I won't get an answer so n/m!

    Re: *amplifiers/power ratings*

    Serves as as great information in a sellers point of view and as well listed dates of the amps in which they were released which is always interesting. Good to know my excelon xac-301t has been pounding away half ohm stable since 1999. Time to set it aside again and play with the memphis AR-HC100

    EDIT: What do you think forums are for? Information sharing. Wildcard search in google on the memphis amp i just picked up lead me to a few old threads.
