i used to read in car audio speakers about rms and peak . but im a little confused cause in dj speakers manufactures talk about rms program and peak power.
in car audio speakers peak is about twice the rms. in dj speakers program is twice the rms power and peak twice the program power.
Why in these two different areas of the sound reinforcement peak is different respect rms in the those two areas?
thnk you, i hope i had done a good explanation of my question.

usually peak power is a worthless indicator anyway...

not sure exactly what you mean, so sorry i couldn't be more helpful.

and usually RMS is .707 multiplied by the peak, IIRC.
