    I still wouldnt trust a dmm to set gains on an amplifier because it doesn't take impedance rise into account

    got proper amperage requirements, amps can only put so much power with below what it needs.

    Miles better than by ear though.

    Oscope is the surefire way. Or, if you're nervous use DMM and turn down a touch.

    Go buy a dmm set it to ac connect jt to the speaker outs on the amp and on a 50hz tone turn your gains up till ur dmm reads 38avc

    yea
    That's what you were running your SAZ on? No wonder it blew. It takes power to make power man. Do you have a voltage meter and know what your voltages look like on this new amp and the old one? And what size alt you got coming?

    Voltage never drops below 12.9 at worst. usually between 13.4-14 volt. and it blew before because somebody put the power and ground backwards

    Oh well that's bad biz about swapping them. Are those voltages with the new amp or old? Did you set the gains properly on that amp, or just turn it up like you are doing on this one? I would think that amp would pull more than that at wide open, you may not have been seeing all of the power out of it; you might have had the gain lower than where you could have put it.
