    Take a Voltmeter and set it for AC voltage, when the subs are hittin as hard as theyll go, measure the output of the voltage at the speaker out terminals on the amp. As for calculating it if you give me the numbers I can tell ya how much.

    Ill need RMS voltage and the ohm rating of the load that the amp is running

    Forgot to mention that last time

    whats the rms voltage??
    i know my amp is a 2400xtrpro and its at 2 ohms
    its 2400 rms

    The RMS voltage is the voltage you see at the speaker out on your amp when it is hitting its hardest. And as for that setup, just look at the specs on the amp and you can tell how much it can put out at 2 ohms which in your case is 2400 watts. lol

    Well can measure it like I said or you can ask someone on here that has benchtested one before. I would suggest Rangerman, Jlaine, or BigBassLoyd to name a few. They should be able to tell you about it. But my guess is that it is putting out around 2500 or so maybe 2450. If not more than that but Id make another thread askin about it.
