Hey everyone,

I finally got a new oscilloscope and had some dummy resistors laying around and figured the best way to break the scope in was by making some amp wattage measurements. Random information, might be useful to someone.

These rating are right before clipping, 1khz sine wave

DLS P40
60 x 4 @ 4 ohms
165 x 2 bridged @ 4 ohms

Powerbass ASA3 400.2
70 x 2 @ 4 ohms

Powerbass ACS-4090
45 x 4 @ 4 ohms
130 x 2 @ 4 ohms

Ground Zero GZRA 4230X
110 x 4 @ 4 ohms

Ampere Audio AA-75.4
72 x 4 @ 4 ohms
118 x 4 @ 2 ohms
256 x 2 @ 4 bridged

Ampere Audio AA-150.4
94 x 4 @ 4 ohms "Clean"
110 x 4 @ 4 ohms "dirty looking sine wave before clipping"

Really impressed with the ampere audio 75.4, only amp that actually did its rated power. Probably going to run it in my car, my friend traded it to me a while back for a subwoofer I didnt need. Think I came out on top with that trade. I have some more amplifiers I plan on gathering more information on. Don't take these numbers to the bank, your results may differ depending on how you measure an amplifier, just did this for amusement. BTW VELLEMAN HPS50 is a great handheld scope if anyone is looking for one.

Thanks for sharing.

BTW, just a heads up: The ohms (presumably 4 ohms) are missing for the Ampere Audio bridged. :)
