    DSC 2000 Clamp Test

    Just clamped my dsc 2000 after finishing my big 3. Today at work I realized I never upgraded the ground from batt to block. Major difference. Before I could pull it down to 12 now it stays at 13.

    50hz sine wave ( most meters are only accurate at 50 and 60hz AC) Craftsman clamp meter

    13v input
    70v max output
    Id say 60v before clipping

    25 amps =1750 watts @ 2.8 ohms - warm coils. Amp running pretty cold after an hour of beating it.

    Update tomorrow on cold coils (wired @ 1 ohm).

    I dont get why my clamp tests always have so much rise on any setup. Say if I did get down to 1 ohm or even 1.5 does this mean I could get 3k out of this amp? Or does it mean if you wire to .5 and rise to 1.5 it will run really hot? Real impedance when putting out power/ subs playing is totally different than cold coils not moving I guess.

    nice test man, u should wire it down to .5 to see wat u get, yes it'll get warm but test it reasonably dont go on blowing the crap out of it lol.. but as long as u have enough electrical you'll be fine.

    The only way I can wire it to .5 is to just power one sub. Ill do that though this weekend. along with current draw numbers. might mess with the impedance rise too.

    Did you use a load resistor during this test? Or what method was used?

    Sounds awesome man. Think you can get some pics or video of the clamp test? Just to help shut up a lot of the MBQ haters.

    Re: DSC 2000 Clamp Test

    no I used subs I dont ride around heating up resistors so why use them > this is for comparison and just a general idea. everyone clamps amps this way so thats how we do it! yeah vids this weekend
