RMS Watts

Post by FarmeroBrown » Tuesday, 26 December 2017, 16:18 PM

Hi to all,
So I have this hi-drive base amp, I haven't used it in a while. It isn't supposed to have over 200 RMS watts driving it, please refresh me. Isn't that Swing watts?
Many Thanks--Farmer Brown :cheers:
Farmer

A "RMS" or "Average" watt meter just shows the basic output with very little swing when talking where a "PEP" or "peak" reading watt meter shows the swing wattage or the highest power output the equipment is making.

Average power can still be swing. DK 50w and swing up to 200 average. Depends on amp you are using and how you were told to run it.
