when measuring the voltage to set the gain on a mono amp i have this question= what voltage do you set it at when the amp rating is 1200 rms at 2 ohm but is 1 ohm stable yet does no power increase at 1 ohm? it put's out the same power using it at 1 ohm. i need to know if you set it at the 2 or 1 ohm voltage,thanks.:confused:

jbl bp1200.1. i was wondering how to do it because on this amp it will run 1 ohm but has the same power as the 2 ohm rating. my subs are a 1 ohm load. do i use 34.6 or 49 volt?

if you are running the amplifier with a 1ohm load, then you HAVE to set 34 volts AC or you are not putting out 1200 watts. if you try to set it to 49 volts you will be setting it way over 1200 watts and it will clip like crazy.
