    it does 1200 at 2ohm or 1200 x 2 channels?

    Re: Dmm number

    Volts = SQRT (500W x 2 ohms)
    Volts = SQRT (1000)
    Volts = 31.6VAC

    This is from your link @neo_styles
    It did Watts X ohms first than the SQRT
    If I did the Sqrt of 500 than multiplied it by 2 I would get 44.7

    I'm doing the best I can not to vent right now, but we were handling this by text. I'd appreciate it if you demonstrated more tact.

    You're making it harder than it is.

    (rms of amp x ohm load)
    take that number and sqrt it.

    Re: Dmm number

    So if you're trying to set at 1200 rms @ 2 ohm you should see ~49
