    my brz 1700 tru rms

    OK just set my clamp with my brz1700 I'm running it at 2ohm's so 1200 clam rms tested it and got 440 watts I have two vvx12 they are 600rms so I'm pushing 220 rms to each. how sad. Can you say grossly under powered. Lol but what can I say the amp was $200

    Are you sure you had it wired @ 2 ohms? It's rated to put out 600w @ 4 ohms..
    Also, how's your electrical? These are CEA-2006 compliant @ 14.4v.

    My BRZ1200.1d is giving my Type R 900w, and judging by the way the sub performs I'm fairly certain it's in the ballpark. I've got my electrical upgraded, however, so maybe that's why I was getting it's full potential.

    Any proof ? I know for a fact that this amp puts out more than 440 watts .

    CEA doesnt mean much but I do know these have been tested to do rated... So I would also like prof

    cea 2006 ratings are only measured at a 4 ohm load, that rating is pretty much useless because most people run lower than a 4 ohm load.

    This thread seems like a load of bs. Vids or at least pics? You didn't even bother posting your results for us to verify your math. No mention of amount of box rise or freq used.

    Yet another useless "clamp test" thread...

    Re: my brz 1700 tru rms

    Is this right ( I have a brz 1700.1d but I'm running it at 2ohm's they clam 1200 rms so I times that by 2ohm's = 2400 then I √ that 48.98xxxx so with the dmm I set my gain to read 48 or maybe 47.8 or so?????)

    So like this? You should have gotten dual 4's so you could wire down to 1 ohm...

    I used a digital multimeter I unplug the speaker wires from my amp plug in my multimeter set my head unit to normal playing volume which is about 75 percent turn the bass two zero used 60hz and send my gain two 48. exactly

    Thats what I thought
    Thats not clamping power. You need a true rms clamp and a mulit meter. You measure amperage and voltage
